  • Ok...with the return of nice weather let's see if we can revive this thread

    Since it's officially the beginning of baseball season lets do an easy one. I propose a picture of your bike in front of a baseball (or softball) field. If you live in a city with a major league team you won't see the field so the bike can be in front of the stadium and hopefully there is a sign to indicate which it is. For those that live in small communities it can be a youth field at your local park (but field needs to be visible in pic.

    Let's get out there and ride!

      • All right Ironman. Your turn to pick the next challenge.

        • Next up: your bike at a drive-in theater (pic with screen or marquee or ticket booth).

            I like that one....but yeah...many of those dried up decades ago in this region.

        • Either nobody is interested in the scavenger hunt anymore or this one was too difficult. I didn't think it was that tough, but maybe region makes a big difference like Brad_G indicated. Below are photos taken about 30 minutes from my house.

          We'll try another. Next up: your bike with someone mowing the lawn somewhere in the background.

            Yeah I did a Google search and the nearest to me is over an hour away. Either the weather hasn't been cooperative or I've been out of town to go find it. It's your challenge so you can decide to change it or let this one ride out a little longer.

            I'm fine either way. Whatever will move things along.

            I love the chopped Oldsmobile in the pic.

        • Nice pic, I'm like Brad, nearest one is an hour away and the weather had not been conductive.

        • There should be someone out mowing today, will look on my way home as it has been nice here the last few days.

          • I heard a lawnmower Sunday and I knew in the back of my mind that there was SOMETHING I was going to do! I have "oldtimers" disease.

              Safety first - wearing a helmet while mowing! That'll do. Your turn!

              You betch I felt a little weird pulling up and taking a picture of someone mowing the lawn so when home and enlisted the help of my buddy. Figured the helmet would indicate it was staged.

              Which brings up a question for future finds.

              Are staged pictures acceptable? I figured a pic of my bike with a burrito on the triple tree is pretty staged

              As long as you ate the burrito(s) it's OK.

          • Going back a couple of post, how about a pic of your bike with an Oldsmobile, any year, make or model will do.

                  I'm sure they're out there. Just like the Road Star, being discontinued they're not as prevalent as they once were. As DEEPHATE said, weather hasn't been great for hunting either in the Midwest.

              • Ya. We just finished a 2 week stint of sunny weather although a couple of mornings it was in the low 30’s. Mu fingers froze. Rain is suppose to be back tomorrow

                • Apologies for the boring Olds. It technically meets the criteria, but I'll gladly defer if somebody has something cool.

                  • Haha..yeah there's nothing cool about that car in my eyes...but I don't recall that being necessary to meet the challenge. Just that it was an Olds.

                    Guess I shouldn't be so harsh as it does have a spoiler after all.

                    What's next?

                      Yea, a rear spoiler on a front wheel drive car. That makes perfect sense.

                      Father Pobasturd I wonder if it had the "fart can" muffler as well?

                  • Next up: in honor of Spring planting season, your bike with a tractor. Bonus points if the tractor is actually in a field pulling a planter or disc.

                        I was going to pull out my old '46 Allis WC and take a pic. I'd kill two birds with one stone.

                        That would have been cool. Mine was sitting there. Just had to roll the bike a few feet

                    • Hmmm. Not sure what happened there

                      • How bout a pic of your bike with a movie marquee sign. I’ve driven by several nice looking and restored ones lately

                          This scavenger hunt item was similar to one on another forum MikeyC and I are on. I saw the pic over there.

                      • Oh! I posted from my phone and it showed a pic with all that text. Now all I see is that text. HEY BRAD! Is it possible to move the pic here from the other site
