that bike is sweet.Out on the 1933 Colson Flyer today. I went for a longer ride to see how things held together and to see how it rode with the original wheels finally dialed in.
When I found this bike, the wheels were blown out bent and un-rideable. I put a few hours into straightening up the rare 45mm wide original Lobdell clinchers that were laced to an early ND hubset sans oiler or front hub markings. Very rare wheelset. After getting the two rims round and straight again, (not easy) I laced them up with NOS butted spokes, original nips and the original hubs with re-surfaced races and new cones. Smooth running now! This bike still needs a correct straight crank and a Colson stand but I am in no rush to do so. Really fun to ride this thing today. Around 34 miles up and down the coast and got some dirt in too!!
Nice!I went to the Anza Borrego State Desert Park and checked out some of the crazy metal sculptures out there on my 2015 Surly Pugsley fat bike.
The Surly Pugsely is destined to be a classic. It was the 1st mass produced expedition fat bike.
This bike will take you places that was once unimaginable for riding a bicycle.
