No pictures... but I got a nice old 1951 English Norton bicycle from an antique store out in "nowhere, Illinois" today. It was on the porch with no price tag so I asked the girl running the store for the owner if it was for sale. So as I am calculating how much I am willing to spend on what I know is a very uncommon English 3 speed on this side of the pond, with rather pretty lugs I might add, the girl calls the owner. She then says, "would you be willing to pay $20.00?" I answer instantly (in my head) and then said (out loud), "Yeah, I suppose I could do that... got a spanner handy?"
Now I generally don't buy "Womans" bikes... but I have a friend in from New York who asked me to find her something that she could ride when she comes into Chicago, and she likes all of the crazy and interesting bikes I have for myself. So all I have to do is clean this gem up a little and give it to her. ---$20.00
Watching a pretty girl ride a rare 50's English bike ---PRICELESS!
