I am cleaning up and servicing a 70's Kalkhoff 3 speed/w coaster brake folding bike it's in good shape just needs cleaning and grease all the bearings. Still has the original tires from Germany on it. Going to keep them but put new ones on to ride. I love the detail work on the side of the rims.

Finished all the cleaning and servicing of the Kalkhoff. I put white wall tires on it kind of sets it off and a tiger in my tank.

Worked on my smallest bike today, it's a 40's Murray built sidewalk bike. Gave it a good cleaning and did a boiled linseed oil treatment on it. Also added a dropstand from a another sidewalk carcass I had laying around. Going to use it as an advertisement piece.

I put a tag on my bike and helped my son take his a part. I think the fairlady spent some time at the beach.

I started the tear down on my 1959 Raleigh. I sprayed all the nuts and bolts with Kroil and will let it soak tonight hopefully everything will come apart easily (wishful thinking).

Right after this pic. I changed 7 tooth to a larger gear. Luckily I had another chain that was longer. And off I went. Took it out at night and decided sprocket is off center due to chain becoming tight- loose depending on position.

Started working on this 1949 Rollfast again. It was on the back burner for awhile. cds2323 posted some great advertisements about these bikes, one of which I appropriated below. Always liked the frame design,I had a 48 tank model,& think the "three bar" is pretty rare. Picked this up as a bare frame at Dudley, the rest from various swaps, adding Elgin skirts which I think go well .
