My Latest project...

Post by Cambur on Wed May 05, 2010 11:01 pm

the last week or so ive been working on a 1960's sears spaceliner bicycle, thought ya'll might like to have a peek at it!

the way I got it

then i tore it down

Cleaned up the fenders

applied a little satin black

cleaned up some wheels and picked up some new whitewalls

found new handlebars (off an old mountain bike Laughing ) which i flipped upsidedown for a cool look and started assembling it, with new chain and bearings

and this is how it sits as of now, im waiting on a new rear wheel from outspokin' bikes in woodstock (should be in tomorrow) and im still waiting on my new big half moon handlebars, although im not sure if i'll keep the ones on it or swap to the flipped half moons, guess we'll just have to wait and see!

I would like to get a decklid rack and figure out a cool way to put it on the oval, we'll just have to wait and see...
i'd love to have one of these but ive only seen one, and only heard of a few

its finished as far as im concerned, with the exception of new handlebars coming in soon (which im not sure i'll use as i mentioned before)

very nice. I've had an old peguoet (can't spell, lol) bike i've had lying in the old shed for over 10 years. makes me want to get that bad boy back on the road (or sidewalk Laughing ). and there is hardly (if any) any rust on it.

well with the handle bars, the mountain bike ones, make it look almost like a vintage racey, or old skool high speed kind of deal (kinda like seeing a 36 horse motor with a judson Laughing ) , and with the old ones, it gives it a really old style to it . just my $.02

Thanks guys,

this was more the look i was going for the vintage racey type theme. like i said the handle bars are not definite i have ordered some more half moon bars that should be here soon and i'll try them on as soon as they get here. and i have already donated the handlebars to Brian for his bike we picked up today, so they are out of the question i guess...lol

these are the kind of bars i ordered so we'll see how they look when they get here.

handlebars are here! and on the bike, i shorted them almost 3in on each end. i think they look good, and the bike feels great with the new bars so i guess they will stay

Yeah you are right about the bar. Speaking of that, why is it the Men's bikes have the bar and the Women's doesn't? Seems like it should be the other way around.......... Shocked Wink

Nice. I made this about 10-11 years ago just for kicks when I was teaching myself how to weld. Weighed a ton!
