What I do on Monday nights...

Every Monday I go down and volunteer at Bikeworks, which is the shop run my The Edmonton Bicycle Commuter's Society.. I pop in on other days but Monday is the night I'm always there to help any distressed commuters work on their bikes.

As the senior mechanic I also put aside a lot of donated bikes that need work... these are usually the classic and vintage bicycles that get donated to our shop.

With a foot of snow on the ground and some very cold temps not a soul stopped in so I decided to start another one of those projects and although I am not done, though I'd share some pics.

I wonder what a bike like this is worth as it will be sold at our shop (a non profit) to raise funds.

I am also wondering what kind of bar set up I should use...moustache bars seem appealling and that saddle is only a temp until I find something more suitable.

Enjoy...
