I don't know the year, Red Streak by Snyder.
I bought and sold this bike on CL 7 years ago.
It showed up at Vet's Cycle swap last month, so I bought it back.
Now it has the cross-bars (repros), Bendix 2-speed kick-back, and a drop-stand.
It rides pretty good, but will need some things adjusted or switched for me to keep it again.
I rode to pick up tonights movie at a red box.

@Sven That thing is cool already! Klunk - a - dunk! I like the moto bars idea too. What kinda brakes you gonna consider?

Out for some good light on the canal tonight. Been some killer sunsets this week. This one too. Contrail lit up like a paint streak in this one.

Took my new 34 Colson out for what I will call the first ride. Gotta say that I love it. Will get the seat addressed soon. So optimistic i did not even bring a wrench. Oooops chain fell off about 20 times. Still went a good distance for a test ride. I will be using the chain tensioners that I have next time. Oh and bringing a wrench. Saw a red bike abandoned then realized why..... It was a huffy.

Cruisin' on my Bluebird

Out on the custom '57 Raleigh this evening, 10 miles.
Took another detour along a footpath, had to walk it uphill to the marker post, ground too soft to ride on.....

We're all going to be using that great camera angle soon Pete!
Sat at the marker post for a good 20 minutes, watching a Hare, it eventually came within 15 feet of me but I didn't get my phone out to ruin the moment. You'll have to make do with this shot; zoom in and you'll see it.....

The downhill section from the top looked quite inviting through the wheat field.....

I was frustrated though by the deep tractor ruts every 30 feet, meaning a slower descent than I'd hoped for. The section through the bean field was a little better though.....

Eventually rejoined the road just over Cholsey Hill.....

Got home to find my friend Rob, struggling to start his '58 Lambretta, ready for our classic vehicle rally tomorrow.
He's been working on it all day. It's a ratrod speed machine, featuring a heavily modified 225 cc engine, it does over 90mph! Fast for a '50s Lambretta!
I parked the Raleigh, gave him a push start and helped him get it going! Sounds loud.....

Absolutely Darren. What a nice variation of bikes this week you have ridden. Just wonderful!

I was on something unusual for me today. Early Schwinn Excelsior with later springer. Today I stripped it, cleaned and serviced it end to end, repaired the damaged & chipped paint, trued the wheels and then rode it for about 30. It was pretty beat down and dirty when I got it. I built it three yrs ago for a close friend and promised lifetime yearly maintenance after I handed it over to him.

Still remodeling the master bathroom. Got a call from the youngest son, he and his wife were moving today, and.. they needed me to help. They didn't have anymore room on the truck and had a couple more things.

Fortunately the F250 is a long bed, it was a load, including the bikes I built for both of them.

Anyway, got the stuff moved, aired up the flat tires on both bikes, and took them both for a ride. They now have a pump, I always keep one in the truck.

1951 Macy Associates, Columbia built.

1980 Schwinn cruiser thing I built him. (I really dislike schwinns, so glad that he would take it from me for free.)
