Damn near rolled my truck making a sharp right as I almost drove right past this place while leaving a recent explore. Sure some have seen it, but to see the bikes plastered on the side of the building caught my attention hehehe.

Posted by RailGuy88 Who's the model? Nice composure and contrast!
That's my ex. Thanks RG. Hard to keep her still in the low light and was using a handheld flashlight for the illumination so it took a while. I decided to work with it and use the soft against the hard of the steel.

Posted by freeside I'm confused. Is this an abandoned photo a day or anything?
Faber's is an interesting place, but being down the street from my house, I'm pretty sure the owner still lives there.
I think you post whatever you want to here.
Fabers is run by a guy named Alex who has managed the shop since the 60's. He's not the owner though. They will be having a centennial open house soon in case you are interested. Lots of history there.
This bicycle was hand hand built by a machinist who was a patient at the Agnew Asylum during the depression. The frame is made out of common plumbing pipes, the tires are made out of garden hosing. The spokes are thick as a pencil and totally tuneable.

i am the other yourself.
"Have you been half asleep and have you heard voices? I've heard them calling my name. Is this the sweet sound that called the young sailors. The voice might be one and the same. I've heard it too many times to ignore it. It's something that I'm supposed to be." http://www.flickr....orers/collections/
