Default Old Ford Guys Stayin' Healthy

No doubt about it, a bunch of us old Ford guys are gettin' OLDer. Many of us should probably get a little more exercise than we currently make time for. A friend of mine just informed me that May is National Bike Month. Who would'a thunk, right? Well, after mulling this over, I think I'm gonna mosey on down to the shed, dig my old 10-speed out and see if the tires will still hold air. This is ALL good for the old heart! DD

If that bike went by while I was taking my nap, I doubt I would be able to
"rise to the occasion" LOL

Hey guys, Put yer tongues back is your mouths...

I did some investigating and looks like the picture DD posted is from May 1960.
Later that year she traded her Schwinn in for this nice Harley chopper, and she's
still cruisin' today, 60 years later.

i love bicycles. used to have about 40 vintage bikes all picked up at the junk yards in the 70's-80's for about 5 bucks. sold them all recently for aprox 100 a piece. some were junk, some were rare. example- 1890's bike with wood fenders, and hexagonal post for the seat and handle bars. cast iron block chain, and wood wheels. another, a paperboy bike, small wheel in front with heavy spokes, and a huge basket above for the papers, extra big center stand to hold it up. never did restore any like planned, and never had a really mint original, just junk i drug home that i liked. currently, i have a garage sale 15 dollar 15 speed mountain bike with paperboy side baskets for swap meets. i live on gravel roads so i do not ride just for fun or exorcise, but its a wonderful thing at the big swap meets so i can ride past the rusty crager mags and camero parts to the next old ford mess. sadly, many of these events have outlawed bicycles. its ok to run thru big crowds of people with a 4 wheeler, golf cart, riding lawn mower, but apparently unsafe on a bicycle. i'll bet they would let that girl in though.

Cas, your bike with "paperboy baskets" may have worked for you at swap meets, but as a former paperboy, I can tell you that newspapers and baskets... well, just no.
On second thought, who really knows what goes on in Minnesota?

if you've never been here, here's what we do. in summer, we swat mosquitoes, and in winter we shovel snow and look for more blankets. both are such a demanding job that in the seasons between them, we just prepare for the next season
