  1. There used to lots of pictures of the park back then. I think there used to be pictures of the vintage event we did there years ago. i grew up in Torrance and still live in Redondo Beach. I take my son there quite a bit and while a few landmarks are still there it’s very different from the 80s. Welcome to the site... Tony
  2. That’s great bonding and exercise. Keep at it.
  3. I could not imagine getting into a cruiser race at 50+ and the guys I’d have to race against are Billy Griggs and Harry Leary. That would suck! Lol
  4. This is another sad moment for our BMX community. He was a good guy and will be missed.
  5. Man...this is horrible news Brett. Let’s hope for a miracle.
  6. BTW...I still have all the bikes I’ve built over the years. Most are in boxes but I do have them. Lol.
  7. Omg I still want this bike. I’d quit after that!
  8. I sense a new collection/addiction developing. Haha
  9. Both of the builds are great. I really like the 26” with the black tires a lot better than with skin wall. The gold on the 29 is killer.
  10. I forgot about this. Mine is still sitting in a box
  11. Always, always the coolest of the craziest 70’s builds. A true pioneer in this game. Rick has so much history to pull from he builds great bikes.
  12. That is so clean. It definitely lived a pampered life. who would have scrapped that even back then...?
  13. Beautiful replica! Two OG’s right up there also!
  14. Yeah, it’s been a minute since I posted a project
  15. Your patience paid off. Nice find.
  16. It’s been close to 10 years since I’ve built a bike. i purchased this frame about 9 years ago with the intention of building it then. When we got pregnant it went on the shelf. Now my son rides... In anticipation of the summer to come I recently built this 1935 Schwinn Cycleplane Cal Custom. It kind of came out like a resto mod... Frame paint is original. Parts were kept with original finish where possible. In cases such as the rims and handlebars polishing was needed to restore finish and color uniformity. Frame: 1935 Schwinn Cycleplane Forks: SE Racing Landing Gear Bars: Tuf Neck Grips: Ame Rounds Stem: Tuf Neck Headset: Tioga MX-2 Headset Lock: Tange Cranks: Campagnolo Strada Sprocket: ? Pedals: Shimano DX Rims: Ukai 26X2.125 Spokes: 16g Stainless Nipples: Red Annodized Front Hub: Campagnolo Gran Sport Nuovo Tipo Rear Hub: Bendix Automatic (2-Speed Kickback) Seat: Schwinn Tires: Cheng Shin (it’s a daily rider...) Badge is not era correct but the head tube looked naked and needed something... What it looked like when I got it: After a color sand with 1000 grit: Pre Build Layout: The Final Build:
