Haulin' Boxes

Just before Xmess, Gay Dave Evil needed a bike shipped to Portland. I said 'bet.' He sent the loot, I sent the box.

Now I'm back from Cancun. (did you know that 'Cancun' is Espanol for "Liver Damage?") Here's my view from the beachside bar. I was there for 6 days. I was on a first name basis with the bartenders after the first hour.

Son's Of Larry Racing Team

Lance Larson was the first kid in our group to get a P.K. Ripper. Rob Reister had a sweet Powerlite. I had a Rhyno III. We all raced for The Insurance Shack BMX team. This all has not alot to do with the photo, but that there is Lance, founder and owner of the ultra-prestigious L.L.R.P./Under The Bed Burrito Factory Team.

Kandy-Koated-Tangerine-Metal-Flake Streamline Baby

My man Terry Brashear strolled into the shop one day with this Schwinn Volare frameset. I'd never heard of it, but sure did like it's pointy chrome lugs and tangerine metal flake paint job. Seems these were the "Japanese Paramounts" and only made from 1977 - 1978. Terry wanted a sweet fixed gear, and he got one. Rare for a 70's era frame are the vertical dropouts. Of course, they were no match for some sweet White Industries ENO eccentric hubs...
