Short Video on the show in Portland

0

Just a neat video I ran across on youtube showing the Vintage Motor Bike Club Annual Get-Together from July 2011. Sorry on the lack of updates recently, have been pretty busy. For some reason the forum posts never seem to notify me, so the best way to get my attention is by leaving a comment on one of these posts or leaving a comment on my blog at www.somethingthatdoesntsuck.com. I don’t have hardly any extra Pigeon parts but may be able to help with any general questions. Have a good one!

Sites back!

The server that the site was formally hosted on went down in a ball of flames due to some bad admin choices that completely foobard permissions server wide (I didn’t do it, thats all that matters). So I have moved the site to my own actual server for safe keeping now. Everything should be back up and running now, was having an issue with PHP and openbase_dir errors that I finally got figured out. If you run across anything that’s not working give a shout. Also the forums do not send me a message everytime someone posts. If you need to get a hold of me just leave a comment on one of these front page posts and it will forward a message to my inbox. I do hope to upload some more pictures I’ve been collecting soon so check back from time to time to take a look.

Cheers,

Chris

Forums up, and a new look!

Hey all,

Just got the site through a massive overhaul with a shiny new theme and a new page setup with forums so everyone can share pictures of their Pigeons, ask questions and hopefully get an answer. I’m not sure what to really expect as far as traffic on the forums, so I guess we shall wait and see.

Year End Post

c_75_ebay_orange1

Just a post to wrap up the end of the year. I don’t put to many updates on here anymore since the site for the most part just runs its self. I do pop in once or twice a month to clear out the spam comments and upload some new pictures that have shown up on craigslist or ebay.

Happy Holidays!

Chris

Odd Pigeon

1

Not sure exactly what’s going on here with this odd ball.

3ke3pd3oe5of5pf5r9a2sbf90cb7a073b12bf 3k03p33lb5od5t95p5a2se5b521a45ccb12c3 3n63ma3od5oa5t85pfa2s55c27d37377a17b7

It doesn’t look like a factory job like the golf carts they made, maybe its the ugly duckling offspring of a Tote Goat and a Pigeon. Kind of think its a home built since the frame looks to be grafted to what was left of the pigeons forward frame. At any rate heres a link to the craigslist ad if your feeling adventurous.

Just to let anyone know, I’ve added a few more pigeon pics to the gallerys. One is a neat sales ad from Japan. Enjoy.
