I had a couple old bikes sitting in the garage and I was about to give them away when I wanted to see if I could make a riding bike without spending a penny.
a puch built sears
a sears purchased free spirit
an old schwinn head lamp, tail lamp and dynamo assembly
and a box of hardware. Some grinding and drilling and it is rideable! No touch up paint is needed here.
Voila, still need to finish some things. Anyone want to donate some panniers or racks?
