Changed tires to the typhoon cords for a much improved ride. Added a patina'd small wing chainguard(this would be an upgrade from the original type). This small wing chain guard was $1.25 according to the 1940/1 Schwinn parts catalog. Work in progress-still looking for tank!
Yes I have to echo cycling days post. Sorry that your friend died on the trail. If anyone knows mtb. Its you. My friend showed me a bike (2,000) 27 in wheels. Disc brakes etc. He climbed a couple hundred feet or so but he said it was rough. Seems to me like the suspension fork would absorb the riders downward pedal stroke?
Early morning “beat the heat” Tempe Town Lake ride with Philthy. Lot’s of activity on and around the lake. Been a few years since I rode around here and the development is insane. We left from Philthy’s casa and took the lake path all the way out to Sky Harbor Airport. 12.5 miles in the morning sunshine. It was 100F when we got back to his house.
Dragon Boats were out
Stopping the sheets of water on the infinite pool edge with my camera

Post ride bike bath and wax
If you leave it outside in the AZ heat, it will start to melt.
I put together my Monark this weekend, and put it on the road. A bunch of new parts, it came with a beehive springer fork, but not all the hardware...I’m digging the new/ old thing happening here. Someone widened the rear, but the hub spacing is stock? Why? Was it motorized at some point? BONUS POINTS, When you see it; yes, pic is taken in 2019, Hartford, CT suburb.
Ibis. 22Mi/2hr50min/7.5ave/30max/3200vert. Super nice day again in the mountains riding. 60's, dry and breezy. Our group avoided the crowds and stayed cool by starting early and staying on the hand built. Lots of Climbing....Couple of pics/not vintage but classic.
