#555550 Pay attention kids. No need to replace the decals when you only need to clean...

Posted by RL Paulie on 18 March 2019 - 07:47 PM

I know a guy who can polish up the ends of those scuffed up pedals to a high shine. He might even be able to save a remnant of the mongoose stamp.

I'm digging the music wall more than the bike I think.

#554174 Selling and reselling etiquette

Posted by RL Paulie on 08 August 2018 - 02:18 PM

Happens all the time. I'm at the point where I'm not buying the sob stories any more. As a matter of fact right now I have a guy who has been bugging me for weeks that he'd buy a bike, now when it comes down to it he's trying to haggle me down another $75... Sorry bud, not for cross country shipping.

#554115 GMC truck commercial....

Posted by RL Paulie on 20 July 2018 - 02:32 PM

Is it the one where they say "remember your first bicycle?" and show a kid on an OS bmx? Then they say "No. Your first REAL bicycle?" and show a guy on a road bike?


I took offense to that commercial!

#554089 Early Redline V-bars

Posted by RL Paulie on 12 July 2018 - 02:28 PM

No stamp, no decal. The clamp area is a bit compressed from the brute stem it was mounted on. $115 shipped.

#553471 GT Hubs

Posted by RL Paulie on 06 April 2018 - 08:17 PM

It works!

Those are 90s hubs that just happened to be on my desk when I looked at this thread. I just wish I had a pair of 32 holed rims to lace them to.

Did you try loosening the bolt on the clamp?  :comedy:

#552107 Super RARE Redline MX-II at curb !!!

Posted by RL Paulie on 04 October 2017 - 02:22 PM

Classic! I've come across old Huffys and Murrays pretending to be something else, but this is new. lol

#551711 Good thing this site hosted your photos for free since 2006. Unfortunate so...

Posted by RL Paulie on 20 July 2017 - 02:03 PM

I wonder if using the "wayback machine" over at archive.org could recover some of the lost photos?


Ha! Interesting idea to check on this. I actually just put together training materials earlier this year for patent examiners on the Wayback Machine. Old web pages can be used as prior art to invalidate pending patent applications. 

Unfortunately I fear that any embedded images are still going to be linked to the site that hosts them. It would be a tedious task to look for images as well. The Internet Archive isn't great for finding stuff buried deep within a site. Usually just snapshots from the outer couple layers of a site are captured.

#551191 ENDO !!! - - - - The all mighty Endo Thread!

Posted by RL Paulie on 16 May 2017 - 12:33 PM


I don't think I've even taken one of my 20s out of the garage in over a year. Maybe I'll take one out this weekend to take a pic for this thread. If you're lucky I'll treat you to a broken fork shaft bar endo action shot.

#551119 A truley sweet find at a local swap meet. Phone Home!!
