and with that the shift to winter hobbies.
Just cause it gets dark at 5:30 doesn't mean the fun stops!
unknowingly falling into the web.
and I figured this would help weed out the lucky finds.
It's easier to not know what deals are out there.
Maybe everyone was in line for the delicious kettle corn.
We doubled back for a couple items only to find them gone.
I'm sure some will be seen on craigslist or eBay!
but an anchor was dragging me back.
I couldn't escape.
My intent was to get the guys number or email,
and all of a sudden the price lowered drastically,
and money was floating away,
in trade for a rusty pile of pipe.
This is a 1948-1950 Holdsworth Cyclone,
made out of Reynolds 531 tubing,
and pre-nervex era lugs.
Handmade with a torch, file, and silver solder.
This is what got me interested in metalwork early on,
and may be recognized on Chief's windshield.
and basically dent free tubing.
The bare frame is the cheap part,
what adds up in time and money are all the components.
Really if I had enough dough,
we could have found all the parts to make a complete almost era bike.
Such a trippy bend.
