Sounds a lot like work. You need a beer. How long til harvest and you farmers get a break?

Wildwood-I'm not a farmer , I just help out occasionally. Here in wi some harvesting has all ready started. The rest will start pretty much in the next week or two depending on weather.

I actually like this time of the year. The fall colors are starting and the temps have begun to temper a bit. Its also fun to ride in the combine as my buddy has a jump seat in his. It can be quite hypnotic.

Bought a frameset for fall/winter tinkering.
Thought someone in the Pub might recommend how it should best be built?
Dutch bike fits with my other 80s vintage euro bikes.


Can anyone explain to me please, "'Pass the Dutchie' on the right"

Wildwood-Beautiful bike. I have no build advice as I pay others to do that for me. I am a total klutz with tools.

Pass the Dutchie is from a song by a brit boy band. It was supposed to be pass the "kouchie", which is a slang word for pot. The word dutchie, which is a slang word for a pot (think cooking) was a clever substitution so as not to offend the censorious.

So instead of 'Pass the Dutchie on the right',
it should be 'Pass the Dutchie to the right'.
at least in some places.


Hmmfph - Well slap my fenders - nothing to do with vintage bikes at all.

I think it has more to do with the geographic area. There was a Batavian Republic. Dictionary.com says Batavia is an antiquated (former) term for Holland.
I don't really know, any Dutch experts in the pub?

I used to work on the farm for six weeks in the summer, for a friend who has a job in town. I also had a great deal of trouble getting on the bike after a days work. I was in my late forties to late fifties at that time. Retired from that at 60.

I lost over an hour and half of daylight between Oct 1 & Nov 1.

I knew a crooked man, who walked a crooked mile;
but now I seen a crooked man, who rode his crooked mile.
he didn't have a crooked smile, and smiled his way thru every mile.
i hope to smile this kind smile, and show it off through every crooked mile.
