Flashback Friday # 98






My Cousin's Bicycles





Greeting to all who have ventured this way again. I hope you had a pleasant journey.


Many of my long time readers (both of you) know of my relationship with my Aunt Shelly's kids. They were my closest cousins both in distance and affection. I have mentioned in previous posts about their affection for bicycles. Bikes were a way to get away from everyone else and transportation to make money.


Most of my Flashback Friday posts are stories of my youth. This will be a little different. It will be a pictorial of Frankenbikes that my cousins actually made, or would have made if they had thought of it. These aren't actual pictures (none exist) but some that represent the mechanical ingenuity of youth . I hope you enjoy these as much as I do.











These photos come from our friends at "There I Fixed It".

Did you ever own a Frankenbike or one that really wasn't safe to ride?

Are those ... riding mower bicycles?

Nice.
