Finally riding a big boys bike

Finished this Snyder Motobike bike up late yesterday. I got the frame from a friend, badly cratered headtube, primered. Popped the cups out and the tube was still good, so cleaned and polished the frame with steel wool, flitz, finished with wax. Assembled from orphan parts around the shop, recovered the seat, headbadge screws are broken off in the headtube, so I slapped a badge I made onto it with some 3m tape. Rims from Dan, stainless double-butted spokes, 1930s ND D with resurfaced discs and new bearings, NOS Atom aluminum front hub, Columbia Superb tires, NOS stainless fenders, grips from rideahiggins. Just took it a few blocks to Troy Donuts for a snack. Rides great, but brake was squealing like Mike's tires at 5pm on a Friday. ;)
Gave it a few hard brakes and now it's nice and quiet, stops on a dime :cool:

Dickens on the Strand in historic Galveston. Okay it’s a brand new RBR but it’s been modified with pinstripes and my own funky saddle.
We had a bit of a rain storm this morning. There’s nothing like mounting a and dismounting a wet ordinary with wet slippery shoes!1106703

I watched a bit of the Muppet Christmas Movie on my canal ride past the school yard. They had a very capable sound system hooked up.

The driving range at Ken Mac near Kyrene was lit up too. Notice the golf ball netting between the path and the range. :)

Tonight I went around my hood on my repro Roadmaster that I recently purchased for a very good price. It looks brand new even though it’s 21 years old. Riding this bike feels like floating on a cloud.

Whenever I see a bike like this one reminds me of the 1960's TV series The Prisoner. How in the heck do you get up there and get off? That is one cool looking ride!

Thanks. Greg Barron builds them and it was pinstriped locally.
The hard part is getting down!
There’s a tiny step on the backbone. You skip along on it, hopefully on a slight decline and mount it, synchronizing your feet with the pedals before you lose the velocity that keeps you upright.
It’s really terrifying at first and some of it never really goes away!
