"I would note that the concrete infill does not always result in a great surface. See the 18th Street bridge for an example of a pretty rough fill. It is better than nothing, but it does not always turn out quite as well as the Harrison example,…"

Tony Adams 4 mi replied to Marty A.'s discussion Custom Steel Advice
"I did get some of the Letherbee Malort and I can testify that is is pretty awesome. I never managed to acquire a taste for the Jepson's version, which tastes like lighter fluid with a slight herbal (and not in a good way) undertone."

Thanks for your interest, Tony, and your offer.  When I get info on how to set up a presentation (Paul, I guess), i'll be happy to have your help.  You are my friend, too once I figure out how to do that. Peg

Oh, very cool, thanks for the link. Ive heard mythical folklore about 'the guy who designed the Paramount' from Chicago but did not realize the shop was still in business. I will definitely have to drop in. So is your bike a Schwinn then? I am a bit disappointed its not Nasty's Cycles but the real story is very good in its own right.

Does that say 'Nasty's Cycle' or 'Hasty's Cycle' on your icon pic? Or none of the above?
