    Happy New Year everyone!
    Be safe and enjoy!

    There is only 60 days till spring!

    Usually this week's post is a big one, given Christmas was just last week.

    So, let's see what relics you have found from the past week.
    Whether it be bike related or not.
    Please include pictures as we do love pictures!

    I became a GREAT UNCLE at age 33 Christmas Day! My niece doesn't want pics posted online in these crazy times. But that's the highlight of my week. He's a happy healthy little boy

    We adopted these 2 guys, Friday night, Henry and Joey. Bought a couple more 1930's cast iron motorcycle toys for the collection. Everyone have a SAFE AND HAPPY NEW YEAR.

    IMG_5943.JPG Picked this guard up off eBay. I'm sure it's not anyway correct but it looks cool. And the only bike I have at the moment without a guard is my black iver. May have to rough it up a bit if I decide to leave it be.

    Pretty stoked about these goodies.

    You know you're a dork when your favorite stocking stuffer is bike grease.

    I've been oogling this ottolock for months. It's so lightweight and easy to use. I've been hauling a u lock around, hearing it bang against the bike every bump in the road and then battling to find something to lock it to.
    Can't wait to use this baby.

    Then I bought myself a gift. Haven't seen a Connecticut tag before and I grew up just outside of Hartford so I couldn't help myself.

    I haven't picked up anything new in a while but have been getting projects fixed instead. It's been nice crossing things off the list but I fell off the wagon this week and picked up a few things.

    Yeah I just broke the promise I made to myself not to buy any more loose wheels. I few weeks ago I began the seemingly impossible task of conquering the clutter in my life. I put away all the wheels I have on these custom racks I made and when I was done I realized the last thing I need in my life is another wheel. I'd been resisting this one for the last few weeks but when I saw it relsited last night at $60BIN how could I resist? I feel so ashamed. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Wooden-Steel-Clad-Wheel-Ballooner-NOT-28-Elgin-Schwinn-Aerocycle-Bike-Bicycle/112720382989?ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

    I did buy myself one big item, its not here yet but on its way. A Spot Wazee to replace my 10 year old Spot Highline daily rider, I am going from 3 to 11 speeds, so my knees are looking forward to 2018............Spot Bikes is having a holiday sale right now if anyone is looking for a good deal, or at least they were a few days ago.

    It been a fun week off of work; I picked up a Gendron boys bicycle (in classifieds) , fenders for a 1940 Umberto Dei bike I’m working on, handle bars, early top races, stems, 1940 & 1951 Umberto Dei catalogs, NIB Phillips fork mounted brake assembly, and a reproduction mechanical bank of a toad on a penny farthing.

    Added 2 solid ELDI pieces to my collection.
    Does anyone know how old these are?
