Default Re: Just starting out, but addicted already!

Hey Big John,
I've enjoyed reading this thread and feel as if I know you by now, fully understanding the crazies that come with this addiction, avocation, or whatever it is. I was just counting in my head that I now have a 50 Schwinn, a 55 Huffman, two 63 Americans, three 1930's Elgins, a 68 Schwinn, a Worksman Newsboy and a couple newish Huffys. What is this? And I live on a fixed social security income, spending every spare penny on bike stuff. Since reading about BarelyAWake's shift kit in the Rustoration thread I really want one and I'm thinking I need to eliminate some of these bikes and have just a couple of really nice riders with shift kits. Well, maybe three. But which three? Some of these bikes are like children... how can you put some up for adoption just because you're poor? This is crazy alright, but fun crazy Gotta sell some bikes is all...
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
