I did some paint touch up on my 1990 Redline last night. Very satisfied with results.

Started stripping the aluminum comp frame. I layed the paint on pretty thick. I still can't get the crank arm off the stat.

Got the bolt out. Quick steel and chisiling out said quick steel killed the Puller threads on the crank. .

With the pedals horizontal to the ground, do a few bunny hops, rotate the cranks 180 degrees, bunny hop again, repeat as necessary. Make sure the bolt is on loose just to the end of the threads. That should work the crank loose.

Stuck in Houma for the day. If it wasn't raining, I'd look for a cheap bike, and go ride.

Everyone is working I know but I just saw a pack of Dutch road bike riders going to the train station this morning.They were flying heading towards the big mountains and these dudes looked serious.Sorry for no pictures but it happened so fast I didn't have time to react.This place is bicycle crazy like you could not believe.

Well got started on my sons power wheel trike. Dad got this old kids schwinn frame free from somewhere not sure we're but free. So far so good, got to do some welding still and might chop the seat post down and bring the rear top tubes down with it.

Nice! Remove seatpost, bring seat stays down as a s support, put on bucket seat. Fashion seatpost into pegs.
