The Catholic Church Played Major Role In Slavery – The Seattle Medium


Part Two in a Series on Slavery in America By Stacy M. Brown NNPA Contributor “When the missionaries arrived, the Africans had the land and the missionaries had the Bible. They taught us how to pray with our eyes closed. When we opened them, they had the land and we had the Bible.” — Jomo […]

Picked up this adult trike the other day


 

This is a Columbia 24 Inch, 3 speed, rear wheel coaster brake, front wheel hand brake, hi rise handle bars and chrome front fender.

Found this Adult Trike on craigslist the other day.   It was way out in the plum-nellies.   I’m talking intermittent GPS and my straight-talk had straight no-talk.

It is a 24in 3 speed adult trike.   It was built back when there was pride put in the quality of products being sold in America.   This trike actually has a differential in the rear-end.   Both rear wheels pull.   This trike was built to be  trike.  It was not an after thought where you add a rear-end to adapt a regular bike to make it a trike.  As you can see from the back, the frame is designed to accommodate dual rear wheels.   Along with the differential, you can even pivot on either rear wheel.  Try this on today’s trikes and you may find yourself going nowhere.

I will be adding a springer seat, headlight, dual mirrors, horn, comfy handle grips and blinking tail light.

I’ll be changing out the skinny front tire for a 24×1.75  and I have ordered the RH axel nut to accommodate the shifter chain.

I’m going to keep this one original, not going to E-Trike convert this one.

 

Replaced the front tire, put  on a few mirrors and installed and adjusted the right axel nut that accommodate the shifter chain.   This is a nice sturdy machine, rides really well.   Gonna need to change out the seat.  While it is plenty big enough, it has no springs.

Oh yayah, herit tis

Ran across this at the swapmeet. Reminded me of my after school chores when we lived on a farm in Shinnsville, NC.

The Merax Adult Tricycle


This is a generic bike.  It has no name on it.  The are no decorative designs on it.  Non standard parts are hard to find.   There are no replacement wheels according to Stephanie and Mary at csr@merax.com even though they are in contact with the manufacturer.

When buying online be sure you are buying from a reputable company with reputable products and they stand behind what they sell.  Merax.com wants you to go to your local bike shop to replace defective parts.

You would be better off going to Goodwill, St. Vincent DePaul or even or craigslist to pick up a bike then going to your local bike shop to get replacement parts.   At least that way you would have a chance of picking up a name brand/standard brand that parts are easily found.

This is what started it all.

I have plans  to customize three more adult trikes.  Stay tuned for updates.

 

I Almost Got Taken Out By A Semi


After watching it a few times….I wonder was it a second attempt with the door?

Letter To Amazon.com


 

Hello,

Thanks for clearing that up. Now allow me to make something clear to you. This is a sham by the seller. They never intended to send me my refund. They knew very well that the U.S. Postal service would not accept the package because of their weight limitations. No doubt, that is why the adult tricycle was shipped by FedEx. How could you in good conscience agree with this business model? If Western United really wanted to satisfy this claim, they would send me a label from the original shipping company. The Merax Adult Tricycle is packed up and labeled with the USPS return label. I took it to the post office and was told that they do not handle packages that size. I am in no position to question the policies of the U.S. postal service.

AND, no, I will not be keeping the trike. According to Merax.com there are no replacement wheels available for this adult trike. I have also found that there are no third party wheels compatible with this trike. So, why would I want to keep/use this disposable trike. There are too many reputable trike companies sold by reputable retailers where exchanges does not constitute back and forth emails.

Since it looks like I will not be receiving my refund from Western United, I will no longer be ordering from amazon.com or through amazon.com. Up until this point I can say that it WAS nice doing business with you.

Good day and goodbye
Johnny Moore.
