"If she's anything like a whippet, tell people if they see her, to shake a scarf, hat anything along the ground, like a rabbit or rat.  The instinct will kick to "hunt-kill" the moving target. THEN to grab her from behind while…"

Help needed! Lost dog last seen north and western!!

If anyone out and about spots this little girl give her people a ring and get some good karma.From the owner:"One of our adopted dogs went missing yesterday . She went missing from North & Western in Chicago but there is reason to believe she may be by the UIC medical campus but that's not confirmed. We've not had any actual sightings. We need help desperately. She has no coat or collar on. Being half Italian Greyhound there's no body fat to work off of. Time is of the essence."…See More

Just thought I would tell you I bought John Wilson's Raleigh.  Thanks for posting the picture after your wife decided she did not want it.  I love it!

Hey Christopher, sorry, I didn't get to pull that drum brake out of my basement last night. I will be able to tonight or this weekend though. I'll snap some pics of it for you as well.

I'm looking for $250. The chrome is really special and bright.

I was planning on doing some more work on it before listing it somewhere for sale. As is it would be less. Nothing major needs doing and most things on the bike are seriously exceptional but f'rinstance the back wheel has been over some curbs, some spoke nipples will need to be replaced since they're frozen after 51 years and the rimstrips need replacing as they have welded themselves in. Time consuming small stuff. The bike seems to have done no more than a few hundred miles. If you have any interesting trades especially in the older bike realm I'll consider anything.

If you're still interested contact me direct @ wilsontaxi@yahoo.com
