For those that follow, its Superbowl Sunday.

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


Found these this past week.

1968 Schwinn Run-A-Bout.
Planned on reviving for my grandson but, I should let it go.
All original down to the seat.

And these pair of Everlit 1920s bike kerosene lamps.

Also a ladies Elgin, that I'll add later.

This week there was another Cycle-Truck added to the collection. It is a little bit of an oddity but it will be a neat addition to the resident group.
It was posted here in late November when the seller was looking for assistance with the age, and I looked at it and sent him some information based on what I could see. it appears to be in quite good condition overall. No signs of ever having an engine, and no desire on my end to put one on it. I just like the "it is what it is" factor.

It is being picked up to ship tomorrow and should be here in a week or so. More on this once I physically get my hands on it!
This will be resident #15, with approximately that many other ones that have come and gone

Congrats, on the Power Cycle Truck!
That was a great buy.
The original condition looks phenomenal!
Now, that nos Whizzer Kit that one of the members here had been shopping around a year or so ago might be looking pretty good.
If I remember right, he wanted about $3,000 grand for it, but with the smoking deal on that near nos chassis, I think you'd be way money ahead.
Just my 2cents, because it's cool as can be, just the way it is.
Super stoked for you here!

Well, it's my birthday tomorrow and I was thinking about buying myself something. But then my 2014 car blew a head gasket so that's fun.

So now I bought myself an 18 mile tow.

Atleast I knew the tow truck driver so he will be nice to my car.

Sorry to hear about the car K. Happy Birthday tomorrow.

The girls mate to my gold boys arrived yesterday 2 days early . I can’t believe it isn’t completely destroyed , literally the pedals removed and taped in a bag to the seat post and the handlebars and dropped in an empty box , no bubble wrap , no cardboard , no foam , no paper nothin! , even the nuts & screws for the sissy bar clamps were just thrown loose into the box where 1 screw & washer found a way out a hole . And if it weren’t for the 6 foot drop from a fedex conveyor it probably would have arrived ok but it was dropped on the rear end and delivered upside down in the box with shipping label right side up with bent bars and a crunched rear fender , guess it could have been worse. Now all rusty chrome into the molasses for a 3 week bath

Two weighted Brass Spittoons, and a cool vintage Oil Lamp that has a screw on bronze base.

The Spittoon on the right side was completely smashed up and I wasn't sure if I would be able to save it back into a displayable condition. The dents were so bad it stood about a 1 1/4" shorter than the other one. I spent some time on it last night with a wooden baseball bat that I used to pound the base back into shape and also to roll out the dents. I also used a hammer and pry bar. Its not perfect but is certainly displayable. It turned out much better than I thought it would and now stands the same height as the other one. I wish I took photos before I started.

This is what is left of the previous dents.

It looked so bad starting out that I got it for 3$, I had to pay more for the other one.
