Tonight's forecast..."Dark", continued mostly "Dark", with widely scattered "Light" towards morning!! Lets see that ride in the "Light"!!
That is a cool machine! What is in the box? Battery?
Wow what a deal, You'll love riding it. My 64 Coppertone Traveler is one of my favorites, I'm jealous your's comes with the front fender, nice!
YES!Woo-hoo no hands
Took the 64 Coppertone Traveler to the Farmers Market this morning and stopped to chat with some ghoul with a cool set of wheels. Nice hood ornament but the driver didn't have a lot to say, quiet as the grave he was.

My wife wanted to take long ride in the afternoon so we took about 15 miles down along the Bay Trail to Oyster Bay Park and San Leandro Marina. Beautiful weather on the Bay. She rode the early 50s(?) Armstrong and I stomped the 58 Americans pedals over hill and salt marsh. She likes the 3 speeds for the small hills along the bay, cheater...

On the way home noticed these interesting totems hanging in a blue gum along the trail on Alamedas Mount Trashmore, former landfill from the 30s-70s. Not sure who or why but I liked em! To top it off ran into local frame building legend Bernie Mickleson out for a walk and we got to chat. For a guy partially paralyzed forma stroke he's always out and about and still building bikes for serious riders. He enjoyed seeing the Schwinn Canti frame, gave it a serious once over. He straightened the forks on my Pierce 5 years ago and didn't want to take any payment. He kept saying, oldest bike I've ever worked on. I gave his wife the cash.

Those are the vehicles that fill the local parking lots? Cool!Cruised down Main Street to the spot. It was freaking cold! Less than 30 degrees and some snow had fallen by the time I got back. Glad I got out on the 38 rollfast. I could appreciate things about both the gran torino and the stepside Chevy pickup for sure..... But dang the interior on this Lincoln continental looked flawless.
