Cruisin' on my Bluebird
Black Unobtanium. Smells like rubber. 😆 😆 😆

Since becoming obsessed with converting my Mongoose Beast found last week into a muscle bike, bobber/chopper with parts taking up space in my garage I need a fat, smooth tire for the rear. Since I don't shop online & would rather give my money to local businesses & bike shops I searched locally for a slick tread 26"x4" tire with no luck. A Vee Rubber Zig Zag or Origin 8 (forget the name) could be ordered but availability is unknown. I happened to find a pair of Surly Black Floyd tires at a shop in south Denver (Mojo Wheels) in 26"x3.8". ((Sidenote: Mojo Wheels has been around a loooong time & where I used to shop when I lived in Aurora, CO & lived for mountain biking. Great shop that was victim of a huge heist recently. They are bouncing back nicely using the opportunity to turn a sow's ear into a silk purse! Eventually they will have a mini museum of bikes.)) Sorry for the detour; the Black Floyds have been out of production since about the time they sold the Mongoose Beast at Walmart, hence my delight in finding a NIB pair! They also gave me 25% off since they are old, out of production tires.🙂

Then the other day I was thinking about my first ride on the Beast, it's pedals with no grip & riding I want to do when I drop the tire pressure. Got a set of Blackburn platform mtb pedals while doing some last minute Christmas shopping at Walmart for $8.00 to try out. Very low profile with some teeth for grip!😉

Finally on Xmas Eve I got my Coca Cola Policeman on it's ( original from the 1950's) cast iron base. The policeman is a repro from late 1980's all metal, Korea, VERY well done, now I have 2, one in garage ( non correct base), 1 in man cave with correct original base. I sourced the metal policemen from a great fellow dealer/collector in Oklahoma City. After I bought one, I was so impressed, I ordered another from him. For the 2nd one I searched for an original base and found one in West Virginia thru Ebay. Another fine seller who wood crated it up ( they are VERY heavy at over 60 lbs/about 22'' across) and shipped UPS right to my door. It was a bit rough, but complete. I had it sand blasted and painted the correct silver, had a machine shop tap out the threads ( they were a little corroded) then had my ex- Wife ( yes, ex Wife) paint the raised letter in red. When my girlfriend ( we live together) found out my Ex-painted it, she said "I could have done that!" Ha!! Whatever.

Picked up this early wood rail Dreadnought runner sled. No manufacturer’s mark, but believed to be a Garton - late 20’s early ‘30’s.
Flexible Flyer truly was the benchmark sled to which all others are compared and whenever I pick up other sleds of the same period there is no comparison. This sled weighs considerably less than a F.F. of the same size and vintage.

Finally riding a big boys bike
I picked up the Schwinn DX I bought a week ago. Came with newer wheels and crank, also original crank, side stand and fork, no fenders. The bike had a Whizzer motor at one time. Only stamp on crank is in pics. Springer fork came from the Hex Tube bike I hope to get this week. My wife gave me the bead picture of old truck for Christmas, hundreds of beads. Took her 2 months to do. She kept it secret from me. Will go great with the VW pic she did a few years back. Also picked up this rough ladies bike a while back. Someone got there before me and stole the headbadge. Came with nice tripple steps.

Amazing bead art. She must be very patient/talented, but being the Wife of a bicycle collector ( and I know you oldy57...ha!!) is good practice on patience? Ha!..Great pictures too..... !
