Default Donut Derelicts Invasion

It was a good day at Adams Avenue Donuts this morning. I road my '54 Schwinn motorbike, Bill and Dan had their Whizzers. Then my friend Max and four buddies showed up on their chinese bikes. I've known Max for a couple of months now and he's quite a gearhead. He's 13 and makes sure all the bikes are assembled correctly and running good. The oldest rider is 15 and they sure enjoy their motorbikes. I expect to see a lot more from these boys in the coming months because they have some great ideas for future builds.











A guy brought his real nice Simplex to show off.

You should've posted about this a few weeks ago in the events section so others could've showed up. :/

Hi Norm. It's hit or miss. I never know when the crowd will be there. One week none of the bikes run and the next week they all do. I'll try to nail him down for next time and give notice.

I almost rode my moto beta down, but worked at the bar friday night. Woke up too late.

Norm, if you want to get a group together and come down, just pick a saturday and let us know.

It's every saturday morning, from dawn til about 9ish.

The bar opens at 5pm, so unless you wanna ride around all day, sorry.

But if enough people wanna show up, I could probably open it up early. Just let me know.

A couple of new builds at the donut shop Saturday. Spike on a nicely done Cranbrook, and Daniel on a mountain bike. I encouraged Spike to check out the forum for upgrades, and told him about the weak fender braces and idler problems as well as lack of bearing grease in Wallmart bikes.
