Finally, after going kayaking with my brother n law, taking care of the lawn and working on family cars, I took my 1959 Flightliner out. I took @Beeler2927 suggestion and replaced the old seat with a white one.
I also took my brother in law's Diamondback Edgewood out . 21 gears
That low gear is crazy. 14 tooth front sprocket and a 34 rear.
I rolled down the street on this crusty old pile for the downtown concert series at 4th & Kimbark last night. Bicycle Longmont was there for bike valet. You can see the stage in the background between the church and library.
Had something to eat with a Moondoor Dunkel (or 4) from Wibby Brewing. Delicious!
Bouncy castle, slide and face painting for the kids!

Dang i was there yesterday and saw them settling up. Same kid on drums. Shoulda went today. Went for a bike ride with the kiddo with too many hills and traffic. Bent up my pedal trying to bmx on a 1934. Better to have it with these than Torrington 8s. I'll fix it best i can.
Rode over hill & dale, literally, yesterday. Cruised through the village, into the next town, then over the hill into New Jersey. Hi-way , rural roads, carriage trails, & pretty intense single track. A little trespassing, over one gate & under two chains. Ended up at Skylands state park in Ringwood, N.J. Great ride on my 38 Firestone w/ a couple of mods. Photos of what's left of the old gate house, which was three miles from the mansion. Skylands road & one of two granite eagles at the main entrance. These were removed from N.Y.C.'s Pennsylvania station when it was torn down in the early 60's. People were so perplexed about it, that it gave birth to the whole preservation movement in the city.
