Picked up this Nishiki Sport Mixte for $20 from CL today. I've been looking for well over a year for a mixte to refurb and ride around for fun. This is perfect! The H got it all torn apart today and I'm going to start stripping the paint off and deciding what it's new color will be. Me thinks mustard yellow or orange which will look lovely with a pretty wicker basket.
Now I have to decide what to do about the other mixte, an old Azuki with fancy lugs and nice components, which is being held indefinitely for me. It's a very nice bike but also much more expensive and needs a lot of tlc. Since the mixte will be a fun bike and not my commuter or anything, I might have to pass on the Azuki. Ack! Decisions!
And I'm going to work on them in the new garage workshop my H built as a suprise for me a few weeks ago! My bench mount repair stand came today. And ignore the PBR - it was the neighbors.
