Porkchop & Applesauce

Finally riding a big boys bike
Funny thing is I fell in love with It Instantly seeing it. Got stung by some kinda wasp🤷‍♂️ didn't even care🤣. Never owned an erector set as a kid so Now Maybe the bike will change looks from time to time since it's stupid simple to do. Here's part of the advertising I have managed to find for itView attachment 1433319
Eventually I want to at least build it identically into each pictured possibility while I own it & ride it at least once documented. For Fun & since there's Not Much information online documenting them
I think ya should do the one on the bottom left next! Lol

The Antica 🤣 which is funny because dnc1 here said the same thing & the Rekord was his faves.

I can make it happen as I have some 16" kids bikes with coaster hubs🤔

I may build it as a daily without the drums + gears & so that then will make it coaster only. I still want to do the 3 speed Hurret shifter set up but I Do Not want to tear anything up beyond undoable

Can’t wait to see it!
Soon man soon❗ Dealing with mid 80+ heat and when it's not trying to cook me like a porkchop it's freakin' raining like the amazon rain forest🙄

The garage isn't clean enough to be out there working on Much for Now. Otherwise I'd be out there, music blasting & some cold brews until I couldn't keep my eyes open into the a.m. Painting, welding & wrenching on all sorts of projects

Worked on my 1939-41 Rollfast today. Disassembled last week, and did an OA bath on the painted parts this afternoon. Not bad results. I kept an eye on it and on average it soaked for about 20-25 minutes in 120 degree water, I didn’t check the pH but sometimes that’s important.

Today’s thrash was getting my ‘33 Schwinn riding! Turned out extremely well! Oven cleaner removed the ugly blue and revealed a couple of colors it’s been painted in the past..., picked out a wheel set that was already proven, installed the new tires for it, straightened the seat up, picked out some handlebars that I could modify to make them look as I want. Only things left to do are swap to a better looking crank, make some brackets for my homemade crossbar and ride it!!! I freakin love it.

The handlebars were standard short “Boy Scout” type bars. I extended them about 3 1/2” and made a crossbar out of a junk sissy bar.

When I got it.

Got it broke down to a 24" BMX or Mountain Bike; as it is I have to swap over cables, Sachs Hurret Shifter, front wheel needs Trued & Clean/Grease the Entire bike. Now it can at least be stored or wall mounted in the garage so I don't have to worry about thieves 😎
Great to see the dismantling process didn't prove problematic.
Looks great as a BMX too!
Looking forward to seeing the next incarnations.
