OK the City of Portland has a problem with our huge collection of bike frames and parts, the only way to store them is side by side, in a line, thats not good enough for Portland "The city that works...you". They also have a problem with all of the stage stuff and props that propagate the yard, to them we are an eyesore.
SO instead of using the bikes to provide cheap or free bikes to working people who need them, we gotta let them all go.
I would sooner stick a wad of my own hair in a pipe and smoke it before letting the scrap guys melt the collection down and turn it into car parts so I need all of you back yard bike wrenchers and seat post pullers to come and get stuff.
Don't ask what parts we have, they are widely varied between the clunkyest huffy to the expensive road bike frames.
I'm at the Clown House 2425 NE Alberta 503 284 3328, call and let us know your comming, bring a few dollarydoos for the house fund (if you can)and get some bikes on the road.
Sorry I sound so pissed off but all we are ever trying to do is help people out and it seems that the powers that be are never having it.
We had to stop distributing free food as well and they want all the houses in town to look like nobody lives in them. I'm only opening the pile up for a few days and then I'll have to figger something else out, the inspection is gonna be before the weekend.
