Hot Rock day: fresh finds, fresh losses
« on: October 07, 2023, 10:32:33 PM »
Realized today 3 bikes were stolen from our bike coop last saturday.
Hum, there were 3 kids running all over the place, test riding bikes and generally being nuisances late in the afternoon.

First belonged to one of our mechanics.  24" Specialized Hot Rock.

second black Nashbar mtb with the Nashbar decal on the down tube.  Disc brakes.

third Schwinn Sidewinder 2.6 FS purple
Schwinn.Sidewinder.HL1052715 (1)

Today's customer bikes:

gold sprayed Red Line bmx.


Specialized Hot Rock (24" mtb) with 650C tri-wheels.  Caliper brake added for the rear wheel and a downhill mtb fork on the front.  Bull horn bars tilted way up.  Light weight.  getting a crank mounted e motor.


Retrospec cruiser with other decals applied.


Today's donations.

matching pair of 1992 Trek 8000 mountain bikes.  Very light.  Been sitting for a couple decades so they need total tune ups.
Seats were wonky on both. This one had the handlebars installed backwards.



Specialized Hot Rock. Kid out grew it. Rear flat, valve ripped from tube.  Cleaned and tuned up.  Very nice.


Worksman Folding Comfort Cycle.  20" three wheeler.  Stem on backwards. Was left under a deck for many years so the chrome is pitted. Basket in poor shape.  All bearings nearly seized up.  Front drum brake and front rim brake.  tires rotted.
