Installed the Speedo. , lock & mount I got last week to my sister’s ride for birthday Friday That is the way to do it ! ALL proper and such . Keep that bike safe , and close by you ! What a beauty !!! View attachment 1056543
I picked 2 cool bike things and 1 awesome family member!
This Western Flyer badged Shelby? fixed gear bike with 28" metalclad wheels with US Royal Special Racer tires and a NOS Delta Roadblaster horn !
AND my wife found and got me a 5 week old kitten! ! (She was abandoned by her mother)She is on me attacking my neck as we speak..
I got a box given to me . and found an old belt of some sorts. Mounted 'em on my Tiger . ALSO , got a Front Caliper Brake ( Since the bike was converted to Coaster Brake ) It had NO hand brakes. I thought the extra stopping power couldn't hurt. Never had such a BUSY front end before.
I got my TOC frame/forks and hoops back from the sandblaster. low and behold, a serial number appeared! Anybody know the serial numbers on a FA Baker frame? I also got an S5 front rim/tire for my 69 Fastback.
I have not been doing much buying lately, just selling. I did pickup one item for my dad. He is a weird dude, and I know he would like it. My mother gives him one room in the house he is alowed to decorate, and he has filled it with taxidermy heads, and skins. He has himself a little man cave.
Last week I picked up this.
A saber tooth tiger replica skull. This will be right up his alley. He will stain it to look older, and do a complete refurbish of it working his magic.
He is not very savy with phone technology so I sent the pick to my mom and she did not even share it with him, "Saying I dont want to encourage him". I left it at their house in his room a few days ago while they were on vacation, and saw him today at a family party and he did not even know it was there. but after I told him he got excited.
My mom wasn't to happy with me, but this gift will make him happy, I can't please every one all the time.
He has a few other replicas he has restored, and the results are impressive. He also has a large collection of real skulls from various animal species.
After this random gift, I'm not sure if I'm a bad son, or a good one. It would depend on who you ask. Next time I show up, I could bring a bottle of wine and a smile, and all will be forgiven.
