    An interesting week off of work allowed me to visit friends and go to the local shops.

    This Davis bicycle was posted in the antiques section but I didn’t see it; I located the bike at a new antique store in a nearby town and purchased from them.

    The emergency light is an old BeaconRay model 17.

    Dick Tracy’s wrist radio NIB; didn’t need one but thought it was neat looking. It’s sort of like an Apple Watch of the 1950s

    Merry Christmas!
    A Bike showed up on my porch as a Christmas present to me from CABE member @Balloontyre
    Wow! Best present I can remember in a while; thank you so much!
    It is a duplicate Sears bike that I learned to ride on; how cool is that?

    I'm a huge Red & Yellow band fan. All my riders have them, but they seem to be getting scarcer & more costly lately. Have been getting into 3spd's, primarily Sturmey Archer tri- coaster's. Picked up these three lovely's, this week from a local collector. Two Sturmey's and a pre- Nexus Shimano, all w/ coaster brakes. Have big plans for all of them.

    I've actually been trying not to accumulate too many new bikes and parts lately but this one found me. I got a call from a guy I bought a Roadmaster from about 2 years ago and said he had found something else I might be interested in. It's kind of an odd duck almost seems like a Westfield built European bike or something. He told me right out of the gate he didn't have much in it and didn't want much for it so I couldn't say no to a bargain. Does anybody know exactly what the maker would have been?

    Oh I also got license plate toppers for my bikes, skull, wolf, devil. You car guys likely saw them in car magazines and websites.

    I got a call this week from a fellow Cabe'r that a guy he works with had an old bike that he wanted to sell.
    And to my surprise, it turned out to be a 1938 Schwinn Sports Tourist Paramount. image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg Unfortunately, it's missing some of its original trim, but that just gives me something to look for in 2018.
    Merry Christmas to all!

    All you need is a better story and a basket you could own the oz witch bike. You already have a dog.
