    Your fave old scool bike

    Regaurdless of style whats your favorite bike(s) ??

    Mine would be the old cruisers, my Grand pa brought one home for dump once, he cleaned it up, put a new chain & a set of white walls on it, I thought it was the ugliest bike on the planet, I was late for school one day & my cool kid 10 speed had aflat, so reluctantly I mounted the cruiser from hell, man that thing would absolutely fly, the farther I went the faster it got, all I could hear was the sound of the wind, fell in love with it after that.

    I bought a couple cans of jet black spray paint & gave it a "paint job", look'n back this was my first experience with a rat rod, even before ther was a thing as a rat rod, turne dout to be my fave bike of all time, what I wouldnt give for that beast back.


    The one I always wanted but never had was one of the Schwinn muscle bikes, with te 5 speed shifter the mounts on theframe in front of the banana seat, I've seen some vintage ones on felabay & they ask some hard cash for them, sevral in the $3-4,000 range.
    Ride fat boy ride.

    I always thought my old Y-33 was the sexiest thing on the trail in its day.

    "Mountain biking is about adventure and the rediscovery of your childhood freedom. It removes you from the daily grind and puts you in an environment with endless possibilities - wildlife, epic views, a personal epiphany about what really matters, and tasting your endorphins after a long, hard climb. The reward is looking back at obstacles, that are now behind you, and feeling like anything's possible." - Gary Klein

    Wow, the things we could get in the Sears catalog. I got mine used around '78. The bottom bracket was shot but I rode the crap out of it.
