Walking along the bike path in Skinner Butte Park, right near downtown Eugene, I wanted to get a closer look at the water level after some recent rains, and noticed automotive remains down there. That called for a scramble down the banks to check them out, and see what was there. I’m still not too sure.
Someone’s going to recognize this rear axle housing, I’m sure.
This one should be identifiable too.
That’s the other side of the first picture. I recognize the old street light pole.
Come on; you did a brake job on one like that once. And you swore you’d never forget it while wrestling the springs back in position.
Looks like a lever shock on that frame.
This looks more like a manure spreader or such.
Now that’s some tough red paint.
As well as durable blue.
That’s the other end of what I suspect might have been a manure spreader. Along with other objects.
Does that front suspension look British to you?
That X-reinforced frame looks like an earlier one downstream. It has a Brit vibe too. Maybe a bunch of early Austins?
These historic relics are in not going to get molested or hauled off for scrap. A few individuals have taken it upon themselves to make sure, and set up camp to watch over them Good for them.
