    Duh, Dumb and dumber

    Today's dump find an old balloon tired bicycle with whitewall tires. Aired up the tires and took it for a spin, then an idea struck like a bolt of lightning.

    Would it be possible some bike frames are brazed with silver, ah ha research says yes.

    In the meantime I'm going to enjoy the ride.



    The art of survival is a story that never ends. American Hustle.

    I see bikes out all the time, but since I need to find a bike with 20" tires for my Kee Mower, I haven't seen any. I just hope I can run across one before my lawn needs to be mowed again... But with the rain that is expected, it may work out to, "I hope I find one before I CAN mow again..."

    Not quite sure about the last pic. It might be iron sulfide or the dirty end of the stick.

    The test sample was very small, if you believe in the electromotive series of metals the copper token has a story to tell.
