    Saw this photo the other day at the masonry yard, on their wall of funny photo's of people leaving the yard overloaded. Thought it was pretty funny, don't know if it's been posted before.

    I just love new threads. We got "Babes and Bicycles".... now we have Bricks and Bicycles.
    Here is a picture of a bike parked on bricks.......Me thinks the owner has "bricks" in their head.
    What's wrong with this picture? bike_locked_not.jpg

    Yeah perfect theft deterrent. Hopefully the bike owner has a higher IQ then the thieves.

    1950's french Urago which belonged to Hank Sima who was a professional 6 day racer in the chicago area in the late 1930's. Hank gets a half page mention in the book Six Days of Madness by Ted Harper. Urago_red_1.jpg
