    Have a boxing match with a box!

    If you're a collector of old "stuff," sooner or later you will come across ephemera you want to display or use which is a dichotomy because ephemera is a word that describes something, usually paper or cardboard that was not meant to be saved. I've found that ephemera make great displays, and...

    Is it the addiction or just a common sense good investment.

    While neither would be considered collector items they both look to be in excellent shape and with the addition of some tires, have a lot of ride left in them. Great for college kids or for leaving at a beach house. The rub of course is the cost of tires. I learned to work on bikes just...

    My most "rewarding" bike ride

    Happened about 10-15 years ago but I still remember it as if it were yesterday. On local bike trail at one of the rest stops just enjoying the solitude. Three kids about 13-15 on bmx bikes pull up. Little noisy, but not out of line, and I figured my quiet time was over so I got on my bike...

    Acorn Ice Cream Bike

    When finished, that bike will be so cool! 🤣 Get it? Would that bike be called a "popcycle?" 😖 Did getting that bike put you in a "Good Humor?"😛 When you service the bike, be sure to clean and regrease the axle cones. 😅 Okay, enough already Just an old man with too much time on his hands...

    Hobbyline, Penn Line, Marx, Lionel, American Flyer HO Trains

    Locos, rolling stock, parts, literature. Broken or not running ok as I can always use parts. Best that you have at least a starting price in mind as I hate to "make offer" because often times someone who has seen too many episodes of the nose pickers or pawn clowns will come along later...

    Convert 1973 Continental to Town Bike?

    i preferred trigger shifters for street......quicker, more precise what i call no look action. but, imo bike will be a theft magnet ........way too nice to leave unattended.

    Bike repair stand question?

    I too prefer Park products. But what every you choose, don't make your decision on price alone. I never heard anyone say, "I wish hadn't bought that works so well!"

    Sunday's Show and Tell... 5/1/22

    I love reading this thread on sundays. Whether it's art deco glass, lights/speedometers, pristine bikes or rust buckets, a wooden crate that once held bike parts, yard sale scores, or junk yard\curb trash saves, it's all good. We Cabers are just as much archeologists as those who explore the...

    Sunday's Show and Tell... 5/1/22

    Always wanted one of these but not the modern made china crap that daisey is putting out these days. Finding it with almost all of the original box is very unusual, Model number dates it to the days of my very early youth so it is definitely a keeper. You see it just like I found it...not...

    Adam Savage of Mythbusters "restores" his vintage bicycle

    I think I saw a similar video on the walmart school of bicycle repair site. That bike stand or should I say stands is a classic. Nothing does a better job of removing rust from old chrome like a wire brush and scotch brite pads! Myself, I prefer to use a round coarse brush inserted in my high...

    Biggest 700c tire on a Suburban?

    Been many years and I am now older, dumber, an forgetful, but I THINK it was either 28 or 32. I think the former allowed use of original fenders but 32's required after market plastic replacements. I wanted the wider tire for bike trail or bad surface street use and the alloy wheels and...
