    Sweet rides wavy glad you got the Higgens back up and running. If you ever want to do some trading with it for another vintage bike let me know.

    Man - you've been busy!

    I'm not big on begging to ride other folk's bikes, but the Higgins would be so great to ride, like lopping 40+ years off, who cares what the neighbors think about the bike nut guy.

    Nice line up.

    rear wheel!

    i toasted the stock spokes on the 7 speed shimano wheels, they couldnt take the warp speed! so i got the standard bikeparts usa. 105 spoked shimano cb 101 rear, & matching front. i rarely use the coaster brake as the it came with tremendous stock hand brakes. keep em greased & snug, there good to go, i use them on the higgins also! but im always keeping my eye out for beefy spoked sturmey archer front & rear drum brake wheels! das limo & wavy, & don on his 66 schwinn did 50 miles today!! heres our bikes at ilwaco wa. at the mouth of the columbia river!

    Looks like it was a fun ride. I rode the Whizzer to work all last week and will do it all next week also. 55 miles round trip.
