1948 Monark Gene Autry

(Click for full photo)

1948 Monark Gene Aurty Late 40~s 24" Gene Autry. Original horn, pistol, even spokes. Found in attic missing pretty much everything. (saddle,horn,bars,seat,crank) It was real bad. Hand built pretty much everything. Very exact, Picture does no justice. Husband had us restore it for his wife for a Christmas gift. Needless to say she was very emotional as her dad owned a Firestone in southern Ohio and gave it to her as a child.

1987 Univega Gran Rally

(Click for full photo)

1987 Univega Gran Rally This Univega Gran Rally I found in a shop that the owner had planned to fix up to sell, but had not gotten around to. He let me have it for $85.00, then threw in another old beater that is a long term project bike for me. I can not find much information about the Univega, but it has Shimano 600 components. All I have had to do to it to make it my wife~s ride was adjust the bars and add new tape. She really likes it, but we may have to replace the Italian Leather seat with one that is more female specific. The Univega does not fit me, but it actually rides and shifts a little better than the Trek.

1971 Schwinn Sting-Ray Grey Ghost Krate I wanted to post a picture of my 1971 Grey Ghost Krate. This bike was a Christmas present Dec 1971 and I have had this bike in my possession ever since. I have many favorite riding memories and truly enjoyed the Schwinn series of bikes growing up. I restored this bike several years after it was sitting for almost 20 years. I thoroughly cleaned the bike and did not touch the paint, which still has a well aged patina. All parts are original.
