I don't have pic capability just yet, posting from my iPod.
But! I have been in Lake Charles for nearly a year without a
true vintage "find". I have been looking, believe me! Last weekend
I decided to check a pawn shop I hadn't visited in good while.
I drove up and saw an old blue late 70's Schwinn, which turned
out to be a dud. I looked down the row, and something caught
my eye. Bright Turquoise paint, what? White wrap, this might be
something decent? I glance over a little more and see the
familiar curve of a Supercorsa saddle, but it's white? I am walking
what seems like 100mph now,hehe!
Okay enough drama, haha! It turned out to be 1985 Trek 600, in
about what I would call a solid 8.5-9 condition! And yep,I practically
STOLE it for 76 bucks including tax. I've done a little cleaning
and it just keeps looking better! Anyways, just had to brag
and/or share it with the only people who I know would
appreciate such a unique find in a city as small as this.
Anyone know if the 600Series top tube decals are available?
On the home front, the bike shop job is going well. I get a commission
on the repairs I complete, a big help! Though they still can't
understand my passion for these "old pieces of junk". They
think I'm alone in my love for vintage bikes. If they only
knew, right?? Lol! I should have Internet in a week or two,
and I'll be here more often. I promise I will post pics of this
