It's taken a while to get the jpgs of this years show
at Larz up in albums, but it's finally done for your
viewing. Lots of neat cycles, from Lightweights to
Antique. There are contributions from six different
photographers.

Hello all. I am looking for 26" balloon tires in white for an antique motorcycle replica project. Would you know of anything available other than those made by Coker?

Thank you

Those are no different than the 26 x 2.125 WW tires that you can get from you local bike shop. Look to be Kenda made. Your LBS would probably be cheaper too.
If not, you might try Maple Island Sales, http://www.mapleislandsales.com/search.php
They have a good assortment of old style balloon tires.

MOTORIZED BICYCLES:   Start from scratch posted by: Stephen on 9/6/2005 at 6:53:30 PM
I want to put an engine on my bike, but I don't want to spend hundreds of dollars on some kit. Is there anyone here who has done this from scratch? I want to use an old weedeater engine, fabricate a rear rack, put it on that, and drive the back wheel. I know you can buy kits but i'm trying to SAVE money, not spend it. Any help is appreciated, please send plans, instructional pics, or help to iliveformyking@hotmail.com Thanks again in advance,

In the archives here there's a lot of information on using a weed wacker motor. Also there are pictures in the picture database of a Ryobi weed wacker mounted to a bike.

Has anyone ever heard of a bike by Minky's Bicycles?
The one I have is a 26" with a frame much like the Schwinns of the 50s and early 60s so I would guess this one would be about 1960 because of the condition. It has a 700s Whizzer motor on it. Any info. appreciated.
Thanks,
John
