My motored bike and my more unusual bikes

I want to post pictures of my bikes too! At this point in time I have only one with a motor, but after putting one together, I want to do more. I'm currently watching for an engine. Those board track bikes really tickle my fancy. I want one like that!
I also took photos of my more obscure bikes to post. Hope you like them.

First the motored bike. The box in front of the basket is for bungy cords, lock and cable, nitrile gloves, and a rag.There is also a one pint spare gas can and it's attachment.My chain guard repair, also can be seen my air filter made from a bit of pvc fitting and a top from a spray paint can.
A picture of a 1965 Moulton.
A kangaroo bike from I think the early 1960's. One has to hop on the floor board to propel it.
My fixed gear commuter, a Panasonic.
And last, but certainly not least, some views of my three speed, An early 1950's BSA with many tricks; A Sturmey archer dynohub with a quick release ( possibly the only one in existence),(Have you ever seen one?). Mafac reversed brake levers (early 1960's) mated to campagnolo calipers. And an alloy Sturmey Archer three speed, dated 1953 complete with a S/A brush guard. The only parts on this bike not from Europe are the toe strap buttons and the bell.

Yes thats where i found it anyways . Nice use of space with the jerry can and tool box. i have what looks to be the exact size tool box but I put a rat trap on the front of my bike over the front wheel and have the box mounted to it . exc pics
Oh, and what about the ford in the back ground? Very nice. That front grill is awsome. what year?

The truck is a 1952 F-2. (no, not F-250) (The guys at the auto parts store always ask, " F-250"? )3/4 ton, long bed. Not too many of those babies left. Ford used that grill in '51 and '52.

The Kangaroo bike. It's propelled by jumping up and down because the rear wheel is laced off-center?

ha ha ha ha. Only you would know that. :D Sorry man, but I couldn't help it. I had a flashback of a post a while back that your jumping up and down, and waving your arms was worth travelling to see. I just had a strange mental picture of life in Haines. I know, I'm warped. Just trying to cope. :D

motor or what? Nice bike!:cool:

Always wondered how the grill fit in. Had a 49 with the 239 v8. Wish I still had it. Some interesting iron you have there. I gotta get one of the kangaroo bikes though. I vaguely remember the ads on tv many years ago.
