Sorry about the total lack of postings in the past year. More job responsibilities (downsizing does this), picking up the heavy labor on our family farm due to aging in-laws and life in general. Also the dreaded task of having to restore the missing pictures has caused much procrastination on my part.

I am still buying bikes, working on bikes, and riding bikes as the opportunities arise. Hopefully I can get some housekeeping done around the blog…

Here are a couple of teaser photos for you. I recently purchased these two and yet another Twenty that I am waiting for Spring Thaw to collect.

means BIKE PARTS!

Just got home from a week on the road to several boxes waiting for me. This is a good thing. Hubs are here for the Raleigh Record build. New Brooks Flyer for my expedition bike build/tour bike. The hubs I ended up ordering are Sturmey Archer. Ordered an X-RD5(w) for the rear and an XL-FDD for the front. I would have liked to have the 90mm drum for the rear, but apparently they aren’t available state side at this point.

More parts have been ordered and will be trickling in over the next few weeks. Hopefully a complete bike or two will be coming out of the shop in a few weeks.

Pictures…forthcoming.

From Redline R530

My Dutch inspired bicycle is almost done! I got my Basil Karvan II panniers installed, along with a Esge double legged kickstand. Thanks to Portlandize and Rat Trap Press for their input.

Just a few more goodies and I will declare the bike done. I want a different set of pedals the touring pedals from Velo-Orange look like what I want, then most likely a set of Power Grips. Still toying with the idea of getting a different tail light that is generator powered with the stand light, current tail light and PB Super Flash are doing just fine so I may pass on that for the time being. I am also toying with the idea of a set of cork hand grips, but that is more of an aesthetics thing.

Any suggestions are welcomed!
