Through snow, sun, long distances, dark hours and early mornings, we’ve been building the Honky Tonk to ride through it all.

I've been commuting to and from work for almost 4 years now, and all that time it has been on my '87 Schwinn Super Sport that I converted to a fixed gear. It *barely* fit 28c tires, and the fenders were hideous, though I managed to make them fit. Finally put a clamp-on rear rack on it, but it kind ... Read More »
