Hey forum, what's up? Most of y'all know me from the “Weather” half of the forums. I usually don't venture out of that realm honestly, but I feel that I should make one of my favorite hobbies known. A gentleman named “Grandin” had made a comment about one of my bikes. Feeling oh so flattered, I desided to show off what little bit of a collection I have. A buddy of mine has a mind blowing collection of muscle bikes..and bikes in general, which my bikes don't hold a candle too. But, here they are…
Here we have my 2004 or so Haro V-1 mountain bike. This is my EVERYTHING bike. I upgraded the wheels to Specialized Hardrock rims, and Avid Juicy BB-7 model disk brakes. Its a BEAST. Fast as crap in my opinion.
This is my 2001 or so Mongoose Styleist-Pro. I got it from my uncle, who didn't want it anymore. This is the only true stunt bike I have. It feels like a tank when you ride it becuase its so heavy . Only upgrades to it at the rear brake lines, stem, handle bars (from an old Schwinn Predator), and handle bar grips.
This is my seemingly rare Turantula BMX bike. I have never seen another one like it. I got it becuase its a 24 inch. My aunt paid 5 bucks for it at a yard sale. Only upgrade to it is the seat post, from a Mongoose Gravity Games bike.
Here is my 1987 Skyway 280-TA. Its modified just a little bit. The 280-TA model was said to only be in production for about 2 or three years. I seen the frame, handlebars, fork, and some Skyway pads go for 300 bucks on eBay a while back. Good times.
This one is my Huffy West Coast Chopper bicycle. It doesn't really suit the collection, BUT I got it because it was odd. Found it on Craigslist for 45 bucks. It rides like a DREAM.
This one is my Schwinn Stingray chopper. Y'all probably remember seeing these at Wal-Mart for like..200 bucks. I only paid 60 for it, and there isn't a single thing wrong with it.
This one is a TRUE classic. The 1968 Schwinn Stingray Fastback. Needs a tube for the rear tire though Sorry for the blurriness.
This one is a rather modified Huffy PorkChopper bike. The only thing that is stock on this thing is the seatpost and forks!
This is my good ole' 1968 Columbia Playboy. This thing is very stout, and cruises easy.
This is my Bratz bike. Wal-Mart sold these bikes for 100 bucks back in 2005 I think. This bike was bought by my grandpa shortly befor he died. I told him I wanted the bike…but I only had 60 bucks. He asked me how much I needed to get it. I told him about 40 bucks. He then grabbed his wallet, handing me 40 bucks cash. He then told me “Go get that bike, and bring it home. I want to see it.” If it wasn't for my grandpa, I wouldn't know some of the stuff about bikes that I know today. This bike stays inside in the guest bedroom 24/7. I RARELY take it outside. This bike is his memorial, from me. May you rest in peace paw-paw. I love you.
Last but not least, this is my 1953 Columbia cruiser. Its a blast to ride. A bit odd as well…but still fun to roll out, and be seen on.
And there you have it. My collection of bicycles. I am STILL looking to make it grow, but not untill I have a job. Thanks for lookin. If you have any questions, feel free to ask me.
