Recyclery and Apple’s new toy

We were driving by and some people had this bike out by the trash. It’s a Monark, mid-50′s. It’ll sit in our basement for who-knows-how-long. Someday it’ll spin again.

For all you Apple dorks, which I am not, by the way.

  1. sweeet ride. love the bob-tail fender on that thing. way to divert a treasure from falling into the one-way (wrong way) waste stream. needs a nice wicker pic-a-nic basket hanging off the bars for a finishing touch.

  2. Nice find!
    I spotted a chrome wheel sticking out of a dumpster one day, jumped in, and pulled out a ’76 raleigh sport, dragged it home, spent a day on it and now ride it everywhere when commuting. Classic bikes are the shit.

  3. Bike Score! Dig it.

    And apple is just getting weaker by the second with that crap, yet there’s going to be throngs of nodder’s get’n their digistoke all up on that shit. Sum Weke Schash.

  4. I am an Apple fan, and I’m underwhelmed by the iPad. They took my iPod Touch and grew it. There’s a few more options for accessories, but no new technology. The iPhone 4g had better be pretty special or Android is going to smack them…

  5. All true. I’m a Mac guy since way back and my current 24″ dual-core iMac is the coolest PC I’ve ever seen. But the iPad thingie is pointless. The iPod touch is a cool gadget, but I don’t need one. The iPhone will hold its own against Android, but I don’t need one of those either. I don’t have a cell phone and I like it that way. It’s just another short chain, I can’t believe how people enslave themselves to their cellies.

  6. sure the ipad offers women with virus infections something special. but what if trojans and worms get up there?

  7. kruzer SKOR!!!!! cold sweat equity. throw some new meat on ‘er, jack down the seat, hit the stem with a hammer and peel some skids, sister. i like gala apples.

  8. I’d bet dollars to donuts ‘ol Vicente’s email is Spam Central. But, I’m bored and have 5 minutes to kill before I leave this god damn awful law library and drive over to get my girls from daycare.

    It’s going to be the Colts by 8 1/2.
