    Fun Find of the Weekend

    There's a guy that lives by me that sells old fishing gear on a regular basis off his front lawn and has now branched into old bicycles. Pretty much everything is junk, but I found a fun ride yesterday for $50 - a 1984 Panasonic Tourist. I'm a big Panasonic fan and not all bikes need to be of the go-fast type. So now I have me a fun little 3-speed around town cruiser. Must be a sign that I'm getting old.

    Nah, it's ok. 1984 is old enough for C&V. Post some pictures and we'll give you wild guesses on how you did!
    Why "derailer" is the correct way to spell the gear-change mechanism: sheldonbrown.com/derailer.html

    I figured 1984 was old enough, the fact that I wasn't asking about an appraisal I though made it the wrong forum, and I reposted in the non-appraisal C&V subforum.
