That is very intriguing, in a good way! Very nice.Went out on the old iron mine trails again today. Checked out parts of one that I hadn't seen before & found a new one. They are getting much easier to spot now that I know what to look for. Beauty shot of my steed, 1938 Firestone Fleetwood badged Colson w/ a 750 watt mid drive. 3 spd, Sturmey. This is literally a go anywhere bike, I can see why it was a favorite of the Repack racers.
I like this one Mark... I am going to have to hook up with you guys one weekend. I'm 2 miles from the pier up Beach Blvd. Looks like a nice day for a ride.1934 Greyhound about 20 miles. To church, the beach, Mom's in HB, then headed home.
I was rolling down the small hill of the flood control canal near home, when I saw the front tube poke out and start thumping.
I was on the brake when it sounded like a gun-shot.
No catastrophe; safely stopped before the whole tire un-seated.
Down at the beach, I met Roger, @Cory and @mrg for the ride through HB.
Another beautiful day for a ride; exceptionally warm at the beach today.
Really diggin the paint on this Shelby! Is that orig? Love the fender detailsMy Sunday regular ride was cut short today. Buddy’s rear tire went flat about 4 miles into it. So I pedaled back to his house to grab the truck to go pick him up. First fired for the ’36 Shelby On the riverbed trail. Was a nice ride for the short time. Gonna ride it again next Sunday
Doubtful that is original paint. It’s most likely a really old paint job that someone really took some time on. Kinda hot rod. When I saw it for sale here on the CABE I knew I had to have it! And I love it just the way it isReally diggin the paint on this Shelby! Is that orig? Love the fender details
