    We were all set to start the road trip to Ohio tonight but the wife was caught up in a tornado at the ranch near Salisaw Oklahoma, she is fine but she is native California girl so earthquakes are familiar, tornadoes are not! I'm from Kansas originally so I'm not afraid of the big wind but I do respect it. We will hopefully be able to get out of here early tomorrow morning!

    Now that's what I call wanting a bike! Kudos to you for going after what you want no matter what it is! Hope all is well with the tornado aftermath, and safe travels!! Not sure if you are picking up the bike and heading back, but if you are staying around for a day or two, you and your wife, and Buck are more than welcome to stop by tonight for fireworks in Carey Ohio, 35 minutes north of Lima, the absolute best backyard display that rivals many of the small town fireworks in this area! Also more than welcome to stop by my place in Arcadia, about the same distance to see my old junk and maybe have a cold beer! PM if interested! Joe

    On the way home we stopped at Exit 76 Antiques and found all kinds of goodies including this barely used Schwinn exercise bike! 4ea203f212852566f91f2894c049d092.jpg

    If you stop by all the Ohio CABE members places, no doubt you'll have fun and go broke getting their stuff too :)

    That "unidentifiable lightweight" looks interesting. German? Austrian?

    I'll have to get a closer look at the unidentifiable I picked it up mainly because of the rear hub, it has "Schwinn Approved" stamped on it?

    Two things I learned from the Bluegrass road trip 1. CABEr's are a great group of people and 2. How to properly pronounce Lime uh, not the phonetic way they drummed in my noggin during Army training!
