    Does anyone regularly ride a Hi-Wheeler or a Boneshaker? I'm very curious to know if anyone besides me has toured with them.

    It's a '95 Deluxe Black Phantom, & it's real but if you mean by age...

    Here's my "1953" Green Phantom...
    minus the baseball card on the rear clothes pin...:D

    With Schwinn tires. The rear light housing was being cleaned when this photo was taken. My 1952 Black Phantom is in the storage shed. And all are very comfortable to ride.

    This classic beauty was Schwinn's answer to the Aerocycle.
    The '36 Cycleplane incorporated many features (front forks, chain guard, rear rack) but at an
    affordable price. The Aerocycle's price tag was $$$, especially in 1930s depression era.

    btw: The horns that these beauties were equipped with...nowadays are worth mucho $$$

    It might be too late... & unless you will be doing this yourself,
    I hope you have a complete inventory of each part before submitting to the place that will do the "plating".

    Very difficult to tell if some tiny parts happen to be missing from the total unit. To the shop it might be
    just another screw or brace, but you know that these original parts are very hard to come by.

    The secret to running a successful cycling event is choosing the right accessories.

    Restoration continues. I'm quite rushed and also don't want to invest too much in another ladies bicycle, so i decided to replace chrome plating with glossy zinc plating on handlebars and small parts such as brake lever etc. and parts of frame with silver metallic paint. Rims, fenders etc. should be ready for painting within next week. Frame and forks are done. Only remains to draw golden links on it.
    I should mention the fact that up close it looks not so nice as I'm not an varnisher and I'm totally inept, but it will be probably roadworthy and paint will possibly also last a while.

    Do you do the zinc plating yourself? And if so, how?

    I have a bike in mind for restoration, it is a ladies Raleigh bike, the paint I may chose french enamel grey as per the scouts cycling handbook but the chrome handle and pedals are quite poor
    , mind you the bike is about 60-70 years old.

    Thanks

    With the Retro Ronde in Belgium and Eroica Brittania happening in June is anyone else getting their vintage cycles out this summer.

    For the two above events do any other 'loungers' want to arrange a 'meet and greet'?
