Schwinn Black Phantom

here's one of the many old cruisers that you can find within the confines of the old barn. This old Phantom has been completely restored back to original status. There are a few new parts that we installed just to spiff it up a little. Can you guess which parts are new ?

El Cuervo.....angus approved

as i was taking a few pictures of the Ventana El Cuervo today i managed to draw a small crowd of interested onlookers. I knew the cattle were drawing in closer and closer but i had no idea she was going to have a taste until i actually started to review the pictures later on....pretty funny if you ask me. Just don't tell Cameron that his new shiny Ventana has been lick smacked.

i'll post a few more pics of the two El Cuervo DH rigs once we finish building them up within the next day or two.

JC Higgins

men's late 50's JC Higgins. Here's one of the newly aquired cruisers that made it's journey all the way from Fremont Nebraska. I'll show more of this collection a little later.

Jim's new Calfee Luna

Jim here looks a little excited doesn't he ?? Well after months of anticipation and years of logging endless miles on an older Rambouiller touring bike he's stepping it up into the ferrari of road bikes....the 62cm Calfee Luna weighs in at a scant 17#, not too shabby for a tall bike that also sports three front chainwheels. Three chainrings made possible by TA Specialties middle ring w/ inner ring adapter. 30 gears and enough low end to help him with his next attempt at Woods Creek Pass (Frank Church Wilderness of No Return).
