Had a box in the trailer from the memory lane swap I just unpacked, and forgot I bought this, a rear reflector and housing for my 49 B6. Also got a new to me truck to haul the trailer and push some snow this winter if it shows up!

I bought this quite rare 1930 Boyd Traffic Light that has reportedly hung in a 3rd floor ball room in Columbus, Ohio since the 1940s where it was when I saw it.. the house is a 10,000 square foot house built in 1910 in historic downtown Columbus.. amazingly it was only about 6 miles away from the Boyd Traffic Control Equipment Company's Head Office !! the company was very short lived and opened in late January 1930 and closed the same year !! here's the house it was in all those years.. and one of the light.. and one in front of the building where the company's Head office was... almost 91 years later !!

Cruisin' on my Bluebird
Picked up a '93 Chevy G20 Gulfstream conversion van from the original owner. 105k miles, 350 v8. Only rust is a couple small bubbles that aren't through the paint yet. Got a really good deal, but it needs a few things. Going to tackle the tune up today, then I have a couple other things to fix. Not sure how long I'll keep it, but looking forward to cruising around with the family once I get a few things squared away.

I live for the CABE
This post war Monark was for sale locally. The seller’s dad (who customized this bicycle) was a pin striper and custom car builder. It’s suggested this bike was customized in the 60s/ early 70s.
The black photo is the inside of one of the rear fender skirts. The skirts and the triangle pieces on the front wheel all look like they were cut from the same Coca-Cola sign.

Finally riding a big boys bike
Here is another oddball bike. I have never seen one off these. It is a Raleigh comp tech 1, I believe from the mid 80’s. The story is that it never sold in the bike shop, so the owner of the bike shop took it home and put it in the basement. I got it from the guy that bought it from him 10 years ago. I do not know the purpose of this bike. It has 20 inch wheels, 6 speeds and a steel frame ( it is not light in weight). Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.

A killer Garford/Columbia branded saddle arrived from McCauley Cycle Works for the Model 44 racer. I just need a pair of period correct tires to finish the bicycle and maybe a little detail work on the nickel bits. Also some new additions to my pedal patch of singles; and an advertising sign.

Found this on CL. Paint is in really nice shape, glossy and the Higgins panels have a nice matte finish. Chrome trim in excellent shape. Haven’t cleaned it yet.
The 73 year old owner had recently cleaned out his mother’s house and found it in the attic. He had taken it off his bike back in the 50s. He had forgotten about it, unfortunately the rest of the bike is long gone.
On my way to get it, a collector called from California and offered him more money. The man was nice enough to honor his agreement with me. Funny, it had been listed for 9 days with no responses.

Good week for goodies. I bought a nice 1994 Fender ( re-issue of a '72) Telecaster that arrived. It's a honey. I picked up a new Fender "ashtray" p/u cover for the back bridge p/u from Amazon, it arrived just before the guitar. The guitar is all stock except the previous owner opted for a little hotter set of Lollar pickups. It sounds great thru either of my tube amps. It came with the stock p/u's in the hard shell case.

I also hung up a couple of my tin planes as I'm running out of room, and some fish line works well and adds a bit of dimension. The Schuco is a Vickers Viscount ( 2008 limited run of 1000 off an original mold) and the Yonezawa DC-7 is from the 1950's battery op (I have 4 of these planes), cool functions, light, props spin, taxi's, stewardess comes out of open door/passenger faces vanish, etc.

I put an EA horn on my '49 Mercury Super Deluxe Fleetline, a 6 rib EA on the Dayton, ( one more to come) and worked on a couple of bikes I posted in "what bike did you work on today"? The hobbies sure help this Covid restricted situation. And cold beer helps too.

This early tall frame was awaiting me when I went out to my van today. I guess the FedEx guy didn’t want to trudge through the snow to bring it up to the house. I also got around to unpacking a stash of Huffman parts that came my way. If anyone has any ideas as to the identity of the early pneumatic tire safety please let me know.
