I rode the Gigi over to Chevron for some "Cleaning Fluid" for hubs that need rebuilt; with its' S.S. handy basket.;)
I really feel sorry for the folks that have to gas up their vehicles very often; it's expensive!

The tires and the wheel set on the Gigi are really sweet. I used that setup on a Roadmaster I built just over a year ago, also used the handlebar, stem, crank, pedals and chain ring.

The Shimano Nexus Inter3 is a nice hub to run.

The saddle is really comfortable, that is what is on my 48 Rocket. :)

Today, a few of us rode the Virginia Creeper Trail in south western part of VA. 34 miles. We started at the NC state line, went off the trail to the tip of Tennessee , and back in Virginia.The bikes , which where rented, are not vintage. But perfect for the ride

Mr. Monkeyarms, I really like that bike!
Thanks COB! I really like it too and wish I could take credit for building it. My good friend Graybeard John, an elder of the Denver Old Bikes Club built it. He passed a year ago, February on the morning of our monthly ride and I am honored to be the next caretaker. Always liked this bike but thought it needed a chainguard and thought this one looks good.

This was at the gathering at John's when his bikes were distributed to their new owners. He will be missed.

Great ride.

This makes me want to go back to North Carolina. We raced mountain bikes all over the place in that region into VA, WV, SC, etc. Great riding, beautiful scenery, except the slimy copperheads. (Bunny hopped a few ripping down trails in Boone, NC) And then the BBQ!! :):) Looks like you had a blast!

Great ride.

I love the Creeper Trail and that whole region. Spent 7 years in NC on every trail I could put wheels on and cut a few myself for good measure!

I agree on that 3 speed twisty. I have it on a couple of my bikes. ( Frankenjag is getting a chrome c-guard soon, has a black seat now)

Finally after some adjustments and help from fellow Canuck pal Ken ( CABER ccmerz) who painted/re-created sold to me this 1938 Custom CCM Flyte, and I tweaked a few parts to fit my vision.( just needs a toolbox saddle...hint...hint.... yeah...I'm in the line up too...lol..) It had FAT FRANKS ( too FAT for forks) and I put the airflow bars, Gibson pedals, Bevin bell, knuckle guards, deco stem, hubcaps, correct Schwalbe 28 inch tires, and Ken built/painted up some CCM wheels I just put on yesterday. Man...what a ride!!!
