Re-post this entry for Big John

 

Here is my entry for Bicycle of the month December. A black 24" 1961 Schwinn Tiger. This is my latest addition. It is original except for the tires, tubes, peddles, and the nut and bolt on the gooseneck. I have done nothing to it. I just hope I get some competition for this. I have very little interest in winning if there are no other bikes to compete against. So come on guys, and gall's bring out those old bikes with some soul. They don't always have to be perfectly restored, mint condition show pieces. I look very much towards seeing some other bikes going for bike of the month. Big John

1966 Robin Hood by Raleigh 

Lady luck was with me when I found this sweetheart in new old stock condition over 43 years after she was imported from the UK. Remarkably, she had just a little storage wear that was removed with elbow grease, love and affection.
