Should be "Spring Cleaning" time soon, resulting in barn, shed, garage, basement and attic clean out season.
Hope all are preparing for the upcoming pick.

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

No bike stuff for me, but we decided to get one of those Tuft & Needle foam mattresses. The mattress comes flattened and rolled up in a box, and expands when you take the plastic off.
Replaced our old queen size with a king size so I decided to build a king size platform bed to put the new mattress on. That resulted in a few new tools. Been having issues with my old craftsman cordless drill, so I bought a new Milwaukee cordless drill & impact.
Also bought a stand for my miter saw, only to find that my craftsman miter saw was not compatible with the stand and long story short, I ended up getting a new Ryobi sliding compound miter saw with a laser.

The bed frame isn't finshed yet, but got it to the point that we can use it. When the weather warms up, I'll add some 1x6 around the outside of the frame, which I'll stain to give it a finished look. And I'll build a headboard that I'll stain to match. Just too cold to do the staining outside right now.

I'm no carpenter by any stretch of the imagination but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out and looking forward to finishing it up.
Built the frame in two sections and fastened them together in case we ever need to move it.

I finally got the ok to pick the garage on Wed., and here is what I came home with.....

NOS Whizzer 700 kit in the box...

Bunch of fun smalls, let me know if you want/need something...

Nice tire selection..

Bars and a couple fenders..
fullsizeoutput_126c.jpeg

The Whizzer came from Leonard Davis in '72, there is a '72 newspaper wrapping some of the parts; Davis bought out the remaining Whizzer inventory when they closed in '70. He was a local auto restorer/collector in Pontiac, MI. I found a couple photos online of the TOC Packards he restored and they are top notch...

I got this on my first visit when he didn't really want to sell anything but the whole lot for one price. It was a little buried in the garage, I asked if he would let it go and he gave me a price much lower than I was going to offer, said he used to ride it all over. Once I get it in the stand, I notice the chainring and cogs are sharp and look almost new, hardly a scratch on the bottom of the kickstand, pedal blocks look new, no wear on the seat, grips are perfect.....paint on the underside of the fenders looks new.......he never rode this bike "all over the place", it must have been something else...I hit the top bar with some Flitz yesterday and it is going to shine up like a new penny.

What year did Alfa re-enter the U.S. market?

Are their dealerships included in some FIAT ones?

Recall that when they closed their U.S. network last time they reported to be selling only 13,ooo units per annum. Small market share for a nation of ~300 millions (at the time).

Got a few things en route but this came in and I’m excited about it, seemingly original finish Hickory rear 28” wheel.

Just went and ordered a longer axle for the hardware I managed to pull together.

Gotta have someone make me a cog but it will turn out well I think.

Some really cool features: great little metal braces at each spoke joint, red boxed pinstripes, and a really cool little faux finished piece of canvas that appears possibly as old as the rim?
