Okay post up the bikes you didn't ride today for whatever reason...Could be that never-to-get-to/stalled project to the hare brained or ill concieved rat bike reject to the ones you are dying to get back into...

Here's a couple that haven't yet crystalized for me... Note backward fork.

@Floyd taught me how to take apart a Bendix hub last night... while the rear wheel was serviced and put back on... And I thought about the hilarity of sending him a picture of me riding it in the snow at 9pm... The temperature outside of 9 degrees had the last laugh.

I remember when I was around 10, my neighbor Mr. Larsen wanted to borrow a bike for his granddaughter who was coming to visit. I told him I had one, but that it was broken. He said, bring it over, we'll fix it. Well, what was broken was the rear hub was seized up. So we set about fixing it, he showed me how to take it apart, grease it, and put it back together. So his granddaughter got a bike to ride when she visited.

Years later when I got my first old bike, it needed to be overhauled and I of course couldn't remember a thing he showed me, but I had the confidence that I could do it and dove right in and had it overhauled in no time. Congratulations on acquiring a new lifelong skill :).

Oh, so it's kind of warm there then:)
I thought about bringing one of mine out last week for Tankless Tuesday - just too bitter and the snow was still pretty deep (all gone now though)

Ok, I got this "Fleetwood (1939ish?) last summer at a swap meet for less than $50. Overall the frame is super cool looking (to me) but has issues, dents, a hole. After I got it home and gave it a good look - has a few issues. So, I took all the parts off and am going to make it a wall hanger...

My 58 FLH is done but has been sitting for the last three years. Registered and Insured I just got it out of storage...needs a few minor items but I need to get this out and rolling.
