    Wanted: 1965 Sears Spyder Mark VII Chrome 3 spd.

    There is a chrome Spyder 3spd on EBay now but it has a stick shift. You could add the grip shift yourself

    Hot Steaming Pile of Ted Williams

    Ted Williams played before I was old enough to get into baseball. I remember seeing him in the Sears catalogs. The NL stars were Hank Aaron, the Reds entire lineup, Tom Seaver, Don Sutton and such when I became old enough to go to the stadium. Good times.

    Hot Steaming Pile of Ted Williams

    I thought that was a Dick Vitale-ism, lol. Price was right. It could make a nice flat bar rider. Do those Ted Williams - Sears bikes have his signature on them?

    Schwinn Motorized Bicycle

    The bike is 1980s or newer. The Chinese engine is a base model. No high performance parts visible. -The engine may work well if properly installed. -The carb is not level, or parallel to the ground, so it does not appear to be properly installed. -Offer $200 if it runs well. Otherwise...

    Klunker

    Building with traditional parts is time consuming. It takes time to find vintage motorcycle bars and levers, period correct brakes, rims and mechs that are still serviceable. -Most of us build resto-mod clunkers, or neo-clunkers, that use some contemporary compnents. -That 49 DX looks great...

    Sold 1976 Bicentennial Stingray

    I remember playing baritone sax in my HS band and doing bicentennial parades. That baritone sax was almost as tall as me. Good times.

    put an engine on a Whizzer?

    Yes. 25mph is plenty fast for me on a motorized bike. I no longer have my motorized bike, because the roads near my current abode are not suitable (they have high speed limits). An older fellow bought it from me for his grandkids to ride around his farm. I had a lot of fun with it and I am...

    put an engine on a Whizzer?

    I rode my China girl 2 stroke for about 7 years. I did quite a few 50 mile round trip commutes. -You are correct that quality is hit or miss, but I was fortunate. They are better suited for those that enjoy tinkering. -A genuine Whizzer engine is over 130cc. Requires a motorcycle license in...

    put an engine on a Whizzer?

    A Whizzer frame deserves a Whizzer engine, but a 2 stroke China girl will get you back on the road for under $200. https://www.gasbike.net/collections/bicycle-engine-kits

    Those were the days antique store, Tempe Arizona

    I really miss the Fat Tire Festivals in Tempe. We had Fat tire Festivals in Austin but I think they quit coming around 2014.

    Twentyfour Twenty

    I wound up making an extension mount for the front of the fender. Mounted the struts to the middle hole on my sissy bar. Still needs a little tweeking.
