In the early 80s, I bought two bikes for wife and myself to take toodles. I got into it, and have gone through a few more bikes since then. Hers, on the other hand, was ridden maybe five times before she decided that cycling was simply not for her. In the garage it sat for many years.
A couple years ago, son saw it and took it to become a neighborhood bike or something to permanently mount on an exercise wheel. He cleaned it up, changed tires, chain, got it in good working order, and then never used it.
He just brought it back home. I want to sell it to get it out of the garage. I said I'd sell it for $50 on Craigslist and the son said, "Not less that $200". His argument is that it's a "classic" and the frame would be perfect for a fixie.
I think the size of the bike is 23". When I stand over it (I'm 6'1"), it feels like it's the right size for me.
The bike is pretty much all original, including the paint job, with a little rust in tiny places, but looks like this:
Ok, so who is right? Father or son?
