This found me last week. I love these tin litho space toys from Japan. This one was made in 1953. I have been hunting this paticular rocket on and off for about 15yrs. This one found me when I was not looking. It measures at a impressive 18 inches long. For a kids toy that is almost 70yrs old its almost mint condition.

Got a bike a few weeks ago. Just got around to taking pic's. I don't know who made this. ( Please Help ) The Head Badge says American Flyer. It has a two speed bendix hub , and shifter . It also sports a SINGLE TUBE Cantilever frame ? Did some leather work and modifications this week . The bag behind the seat is only big enough to hold my cell phone. I've had the front boxes for a long time.............never thought to join 'em together..............I kinda like it this way. The Leather boxes have not been attached............they are just set in place till I can finish the job . Ride Safe !! ;)

I really did not need this item, but as a bicycle guy you could never have too many pumps. You often find you need one in the basement, keep another in the garage, keep one in the car, maybe you even leave one near your home's door, and also leave one outside in the yard ............etc.

This is a Sears branded pump, and what attracted me is its heavy gauge contruction and that beautiful woven alumuinum tube. The 2.99$ pricetag at goodwill is what sealed the deal.

I now have yet another pump to leave wherever is most convenient.

I have too many bikes to to mantain any type of replacement schedule, so I ride those inner tubes until they blow.

With the help from a friend I was able to span the Swap Meet Space Time Continuum and get a Hawthorne Zep(?) from the Nashville AACA Swap Meet and a Shelby Airflo from the North Carolina Hurricane Coasters Swap.
Any educational information on the Hawthorne would be greatly appreciated!

I had a good Saturday picking. I went to check out two bikes and came home with four plus two sets of fenders. The Schwinn is older than my knowledge, it has an unusual lock on the stem too. I have no idea on the blue bike serial # N80392 on b.b. it has a couple cool reflectors on it. The surprise was the Mercury badged Murray bike, and a ratty old Columbia.
The price was to good to pass up.

Does the Hawthorne have a locking fork? Bike looks to be repainted. No lock--no Zep. V/r Shawn

Yes, it has a locking fork and has been repainted as well. The bike was actually "restored" several years ago by an automotive restoration shop then after some time was poorly stored in a storage shed. Unfortunately the chrome is peeling on every single piece that they had redone, but the paint has held up fairly well. The seller was the now retired owner of the restoration shop that did the work and not a "bike guy" . He had a very reasonable and negotiable asking price so I was happy to bring it home despite its issues. He said he only used pieces that were with the bike when he got it and everything on the bike now is as he got it 30+ years ago, so I have no reason to believe he pieced this one together.
I knew the definition of a Zep gets loosely used but I was hoping this one might check all the boxes!

Picking these up this coming week, I’ve seen a few examples of very early “fat bikes” in photographs though I’m not sure if an authentic bike exists.

I think with the help of this wheelset though I will be able to build something very close to original.

I think these wheels would make a fantastic fantasy "fatbike" build (say that five times fast) but part of me wants to figure what they could have really been for?
It has been suggested everything from donkey cart to fat bike but given the...dare I say it? "elegance" of the construction and quality of material used and the fact that there are two "front" wheels makes me think they could be first generation aircraft wheels?
