"My first bike was bought at a Racine police auction for a buck. I think it was in 1960 or 61. It was an orange frame with black wheels...and too big for me. It just happened that the kid next door had out grown his 1950's 20" Schwinn…"

Hodgepodgin' Bodgers

If you've ever had to 'outhouse engineer' something to 'make it fit' on your bike, you are a 'Bodger'. This is the place to show us all what you did and how you did it. If it worked and even if it didn't.

I am glad but not surprised you are still into biking. Since we sold the bikeshop we have not been biking very much. Laura works at Chase in Elgin and I work at McHenry County.

Brad is going to school in Oregon. He is married and has cycled out of the Air Force after 9 years. Caroline is married and has two boys and lives in Elgin. 

We would like to have you and Cindy over for some pizza next weekend if that works. We are having a garage sale the end of the month and have some biking stuff we will be shedding and would like you to take a look.

 

Let me know if this works for you.
