Gvgordon has not created any collections yet. What are collections?


Pinstriper, hot rodder, general gearhead. Love garage sales, auctions, flea markets anywhere a new discovery may be lurking.


  1. All I did was wash it.
  2. OK, not as old as it looks then. Thanks for the info
  3. Got new tires and found a second chain guard for it. It's a hoot to ride, steering from the back seat without a passenger gets lots of looks.
  4. As I understand there was an early and a late version of these. The early ones did not have chain guards (I have been told). I have a later '39-'41 version with the "eyebrow" guards. (see my gallery f...
  5. I bought new tires for it. When I get them on I'll give you a shout.
  6. Thanks toy_passion. I thought maybe a promo, evidently pretty rare.
  7. No markings at all.
  8. Had fun at church today telling people I bought a little red corvette in memory of Prince. They ask what year, and I told them 1958 (didn't want to lie in church!). Then I showed them a picture. lol...
  9. Wow, thanks for the info. I love random boxes. Been awhile since I have posted, pick a good one to jump back in with. Thanks again.
  10. Thanks for the info
  11. I ended up selling this to a musician friend of mine who had it gone through and is playing it regularly. No other info.
  12. Danged Hoarders! Keep all the cool stuff for themselves. OK, you are officially the old bike king of N.W. Oklahoma (with the possible exception of Micha). Where are you keeping all these, house mus...

  22. Yep, that's the one. Very well built little trailer. Think I bought it right too.
  23. No branding that I can see. Plays well Nice rich lows.
  24. Yea, Dave. It is niche market for sure. Not a lot of folks are aware these existed. Makes them somewhat affordable so that's OK. Thanks for the comment.
  25. Thanks for the links, shed a lot of light on the questions I had.
  26. I'll ad you to the list of people who have had the same reaction (myself included) LOL. Let me know if you come up with it.

  29. I stripped red paint off of an old muscle bike with laquer thinner and 000 steel wool. Left the original green and graphics intact. Work fast and dont let it set on it too long. Try it in an unseen ar...

  43. Why does looking at these make me want to open a bag of M&Ms?
