Got a lead on possible bike parts for sale and ended up with all this from the same gentleman. Eight usable diamond chains some brass fans and definitely the best of all this extensive collection of Gilbert erector sets.
I picked up a mostly original Schwinn Black Phantom ( 1951 frame) that rides well and will round out a trio of Phantoms soon of Red, Green ( on route) and this Black. ( eventually a trio pic will be posted) Pics with a building are of a 200 (and 2) year old school, St. John's- Ravenscourt 1820-2020 in our neighbourhood on the Red River. I'm always in awe at the scenic bike shots Cabers post, and thought I'd post some other than my driveway or lawn/back yard!
I took my '61 Corvette for a dusk/evening ride into the bowels of downtown Winnipeg settled for it's rivers and rail where I live. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Winnipeg) last night for some vintage back drop photo's. We are sometimes compared historically to Chicago for our vintage architecture and warehouse district. The backdrop of the modern structure is Winnipeg's Human Rights museum also located on the historic rivers "Forks" area. Last pic is of the St. Boniface Cathedral ( my '57 Nash in front last year).
The Redneck Rumble in Lebanon, TN is never a disappointment when it comes to finding crap I didn't know I needed until I saw it. I came home with a ServiCycle project, a coin operated bumper car for my 7 month old grandson, and a set of TeeNee trailer fenders for a vintage boat project I don't even have.
I also received a set of TRM "Mullet Fenders" for my Bluebird. I will only be using the rear for now, but went ahead and bought the set. The craftsmanship Jim Henderson puts into his TRM fiberglass parts is amazing!
$20 Craigslist find...A beautiful "Rond Plaatjes" (Round Plaque) from the De Porceleyne Fles factory in Delft, the Netherlands. Painted by Leon Senf in 1893. It is a portrait of Captain Frans Banninch Cocq from the famous painting by Rembrandt called "The Nightwatch"(painted in 1642). These large 17.5" diameter pieces are quite rare and hard to find.
