Wore out three sets of tires already!
I received my 1924 Hawthorne badged Schwinn today! Unfortunately our area was devastated by a derecho last night so I haven’t been able to do anything with it. Power out. Trees down everywhere. Cars crushed. Houses crushed. It’s a mess here… thankfully we are alright and no major damage to our property. I got it unboxed, I’m happy and excited with it.
👍 To the Schwinn... thoughts to those affected. Wild weather all around these days.

I thought for sure the UPS driver would decide to try another day given that our street was only open one way, but apparently they were taking deliveries serious! Must have known what precious cargo it was!

Finally riding a big boys bike
1932 Westfield/Davega Sporting Goods in New York. After and before still has the original red painted woods rims and tires but are switched out for when it is a rider. Nothing repainted or rechromed.

Finally get to post here! Just completed (well almost, I’m still working on a drop stand solution) my 1924 Schwinn built Hawthorne Deluxe. Ground up built for me. Hardly a part on this that didn’t get modified in some way. Most of it subtle. Still a little fine tuning and finishing up, but it’s a perfect rider.

Cruisin' on my Bluebird
Time to add my 1933 Colson Flyer Motobike to the fever. Earliest complete 26" wheeled Colson moto I know of. Original ND hubs with clincher rims I re-laced and mostly all original parts and paint under thick turquoise paint. Ugly duckling but a real classic for sure. Below with og wheelset.
