This evening while we were out on an errand, we passed a yard that had several bikes in it for sale. I've been wanting a bike for a little while, so I asked if we could stop on our way back home and look at the bikes.
This one immediately caught my attention:
(Sorry for the blurriness....it's too dark to get another picture!)
I ended up bringing it home with me! Now I have no excuse not to get out and get some exercise! But...after riding it 'round the block just once, my legs feel like jelly. Uh oh. Looks like I've got some work to do!
I just love the vintageness of it! (Is vintageness a word?) It is mostly all original, including the paint, seat, handles, etc. It brings back fond memories of my second bike, which was a blue Schwinn that my dad bought and fixed up for me. It also brings back fond memories of riding my bike up and down the street for seemingly hours, and not feeling any muscle pain afterwards. Ah, those were the days! LOL
