work bicycle collection keeps growing and now has a 1938 Schwinn
(unknown model) that was rehabbed with updated components to include
a Sram S-7 w/ drum brake and a Sturmey Archer front w/ dyno. I attached
the trailer couple used by the Swiss military bike to pull the anhanger
/ stretcher trailer. The brakes worked well to stop this heavy hauler,
though when the gross weight exceeds 600 pounds, having trailer
brakes would be more than just nice. This photo set is from my scrap
steel run to the transfer station. I took the camera along to document
the fun and to photo the scale at the t.s. for the non-believers.
Yep, 620 pounds gross on the scale when I entered. The empty weight
is estimated at about 270 pounds, myself included. This load must
be a record for me. You know how records go, they are meant to be
beaten as I will do some day.
