The Coleman cooler rides on the back. Fill it up with goodies and take a leisurely ride down a back road and find a spot for a good old fashioned picnic.
Here is the label we are all familiar with. I still ride an old school Schwinn. Imagine that!
Coleman. Another good old friend!
My picnic place settings include used restaraunt dishes and vintage linens.
Of course, I had to include a door knob!
The red and white napkins with rope and moss add the perfect punch!
A vintage thermos set is along for the ride too!
Now this is what I call a set of wheels.
The bike came with all the bells and whistles. Ah,hahahaha!
Im sure this license is outdated.
And here she is...a bike I would be proud to ride to celebrate our nation. Once again...Happy 4th of July!!!

Here is a little picnic idea to celebrate the day! In my opinion, this is bike perfection! It's a three wheeler made by Schwinn some time in the 1960s and it still rides like a dream. This baby is truly too cool for school!

I have to say I was happy as a pig in mud when I saw this little beauty and I needed to share it with everyone! Here's hoping your picnic celebrations are fab....have fun!!!

Did you make this?
After you make it, show it off to other members in the Member Junk area.
Post your project photos

I call the project I am working on the garden bike. I bought a vintage bike for five bucks at a yard sale this past summer. I am going to strip of anything not metal, and weld some plant holders on it. I may also put a trellis on it for a rambling rose bush. I will take some before and after picture of it and share them with everyone. Thanks for sharing your magnificent bike with us.

Romak writes: Hi Sue.

My names is Roma and I collect gears and gear molds or patterns for the museum of gears project: www.geararium.org

I was wondering if you have any gear patterns for sale or trade. I keep some interesting antique items of various themes in case if somebody would like to trade them for gears. I would like to trade with you or any other artist. Please, let me know. You can send some pictures of gear patterns you might have to museum's e-mail address.

Thank you.

Regards, Roma. Posted: 8:12 pm on July 8th

JunkArchitect writes: I love that bike! It's crazy how the Coleman cooler fits so perfectly and almost matches the color of the frame. Your photos remind me of when we would ride our bikes to the park for a picnic when we were kids.

Hey, I'm having a crazy day so pedal on over and we'll down WHATEVER is in the Thermos...quick!
