    Nope. It's a Tony bike. You won't see gears (hey, I'm old) or disc brakes on a Don. The bike in the back is my Pereira Roaring 29er. Once I completed the Hawthorne, I couldn't resist getting the two of them together for an extended family photo.



    As for living in Salida. No, but I am a Colorado native. ...or at least I was. After 9 years in San Diego, I believe that status has been revoked. ;0

    Thanks again for the kind words.

    DX Hybrid

    After looking at this for a couple of weeks, I decided to go all the way hybrid. Gonna put at least a double on the front as well as soon as I can locate my front derailleur which is laying around here somewhere. After looking at some more pics, I am going to reroute my rear shifter cable along the top tube as well.

    Thanks. I guess there was a period where they were running a single up front and a derailleur in the back but it probably wasn't a stripped down TA type. I found my derailleur but can't find the mounting bracket and now I can't find the correct spacers for the second ring. Man, I gotta clean up my parts bins.

    for now we're doing american bb, we could do one with a euro...the head tube is standard 1 1/8 threadless. these are made from some thick stuff so we're going to do our production run with lighter tubing, we're guessing around 7 pounds.

    going to be 4-500 bucks.

    This thread rules! Going strong on year 5! I wish some of these pics were here when I was still shooting the film. I would have hunted some of you down so I could use your pictures. That Cooks from Murdock kills me. So much history in one bike! I was just getting ready to dump a bunch of my old bikes and parts, but now I'm having second thoughts. My wife's not having second thoughts, but I am. It's very inspiring to see what you guys (and gals?) have put together. Ride on! Keep this thread going...

    Kona Humuhumu-Nukunuku-Apua'a

    You can say that again...




    Had a chance to pick this up over the winter. Always thought they were kinda cool.


    Here's the bike when I first got it, a little sad and neglected...





    Built up some nicer wheels, removed the brake bosses on the fork (if it looks like a klunker then by god it's going to have a drum brake!), and swapped out a few parts here and there to suit my tastes...











    I was stoked when I found out MKS was producing these pedals again...




    Pretty fun little rider.

    Never seen another of these... Seems stout, but does anyone have experience?

    Anyone have a source for thread on coaster cogs, or are they the same tpi and size as standard track?

    That is a swedish hub and Huskvarna is the name of the town where it was made. "Ekerhål" means "number of spoke holes"

    Thanks. The Husqvarna and Sweden part I know - I'm a fan of their motorcycles and we have a Husqvarna sewing-machine - but the bicycle-part aspect is new to me. I've seen dozens of coaster models in my day, but never a Husky.

    I'm guessing 50's or early 60's from the packaging.
