General discussions on Wheelmen topics. / An Eagle Wannabe

Recently I sold my Eagle highwheel bicycle that I built in 1994. Over the years while the bike was parked outside in front of my workshop, I would daydream about how extraordinary it would be for an actual Eagle to land on this bike. What an incredible and extraordinary photo that would make! An Eagle on an Eagle! There's a large population of Eagles nesting in the lower reaches of the Maurice River and oftentimes I can see them coasting and soaring on the air currents high above my house. Well anyway, while the buyer and I were talking about the sale, whoosh, out of nowhere an Osprey came down and landed right on the handlebars! We both stood there in stunned silence. After just a few seconds while the bird looked at us, he took off again. Unfortunately there wouldn't have been time to take a photo even if my camera was ready. But since the bike is a repro, I'll have to settle for an Eagle Wannabe. It was soooo coool!

  Extended Wheelmen family , very sad news Jim Ogland passed away yesterday .  Jim has been a strong positive light for the Wheelmen for many decades serving as National Commander  and an inspiration with his cross country rides and many overseas bicycle trips. .Please see link to article about Jim's crossing America both east-west and north-south .   With sympathy to the extended Ogland family  Carey Williams 
The word from Bill Smith:
The Mac meet is June 27, 28 and 29 2019.

Well, it will be in the summer of 2019. I am not sure of the month/day yet, not sure if it's even been set. I'll ask.

FYI, early September opportunity for some Michigan riding:
September 8-9 Old Car Festival. Greenfield Village. Dearborn, Michigan
When is Mackinac Island?
Yes, the Star has been sold. Thank you for everyone’s interest. It was my goal to get it out of the barn and a chance at a new life as a part of our bicycle heritage. I’m 100% sure that the deal will go down but if for any reason it should not you wheelmen will be the first to know.
