I've never used an English Wheel until now. I rolled my wife's Shelby chainguard with it. I didn't want it to be perfect, it needed to blend in with the rest of the bike. It's very simple to use. I can roll fenders now...

Cool I need one of those. Just be careful, metal is way easier to stretch than it is to shrink.

This is my other project. I posted it before but it disappeared somehow. I blame JKT :) It is a Sear's Chief frame. This one is similar to mine. Hope to get it soon.

Update on Flocycle. Seat finally arrived 3 weeks late. I took it out for a maiden voyage. Given the fact it has 24" wheels I had my doubts if I could ride it given my 32" inseam. I am happy to say what they wrote about the Flocycle in Scott's book Ride and Enjoy the Monark Silverking Bicycle, was true. It is design for individuals with an inseam between 27-36. I of course didn't believe it not until I rode it.

This is my current project. I am working on a Trek R200 recumbent. It is the only model recumbent Trek ever made. So far I have installed a Ballistic front suspension fork. I did this last week. Today the 39/52 crankset arrived. I swapped out the original 39/52 crankset (BS) to a real 39/52 crankset. It runs a lot faster. I now need to figure out how I can install a derailuer on this bicycle so I can go from a 39 tooth sprocket to a 52 tooth sprocket with the pull of a lever. IF you have any ideas let me know. Photos would be great.

I love the brick red paint on this old bike. I spent most of the night polishing the paint and applying linseed oil. The wheels are next, they need a lot of love to look good again. Too many papers to grade, I’ll catch up on this next weekend.
