Hey Eric

A bit cramped as the original seat attachment won't allow the post to be turned the "other" way. Also I'm a little too heavy these days with all the Shelter in Place directives for the seat ;) . A different seat should make this bike a treat to ride!

Thanks!
Chad
So what did you think about your new machine? I'm guessing a bit lighter than what you're accustomed to riding?

Good looking bike Chad! Congratulations! :cool: :cool:

Thanks for letting me know Chad! I've always liked these bikes. Even the base model is pretty sweet. I'm sure you'll have it just the way you like it very soon and have a new excuse to burn some of those extra calories! :p:p

Take care of yourself and loved ones!;)

Riding a '37 Colson Imperial

Yesterday I pulled out the '37 Colson from the back of the pile to have a bud relace the wheelset with some NOS Torrington spokes I had stashed away. Today I took it for a spin around the block and boy what a difference a nicely trued wheel makes :cool:

My wife and I rode around the neighborhood. I dont know what's going on with the temps, one day 80s next day 50s. The air had that feeling of snow.

Trust me, my home town does not look this nice every day, These are photos taken from specific angles to maximise the nature aspect that I most enjoy in a photo. If taken at a different angle there will often be buildings in the background. I just choose to not include them. One of these days I will go on the exact same ride, and take photos from other angles.

A few days ago I made this last post, and today I went out on the same ride. On this ride I took photos from the less pretty side of town, although it was the same loop/ trip taken.

The local bars are shut down, with no cars in the parking lots.

What surprised me most was how empty the local train station was durring normal prime buisness hours. Here are a few photos of the train station.

Only one bike was locked up on the racks, and on closer inspection it looked to be a permanent rusty resident that may have sat there for years,

I took this photo through a window of the train station without having to touch anything.

Wow, its amazing how rapid times have changed. All these photos were mostly taken between 4:00 - 5:00 pm today 3/31/20. On this ride I did not have to get within 30 feet of any other people.

I did see a few other people, there was a single kid shooting some hoops, and a father daughter combo out on a tennis courts, but that was about it. Several cars also drove past on this ride.

I live in a suburb about about 25 miles west of downtown Chicago.
