Countdown to Ecstasy?

I've got 2 hours til I get outta work and head over to my old Landlord's house.

I spoke to him today and he told me he removed 2 bikes from a house he owns that the previous tenants had left there. "One's a Giant and the other's a Peugeot.....you want em?"

Heh why not....

So....its probably a UO-8 or worse, but what MIGHT it be?

You know very well that it is a 1960's ruby-red PX10.

Great snag!

I wouldn't get anything done the rest of the day, particularly since I saw a frickin' gorgeous blue Pug mixte on the way in today.

I have been riding my U08 recently, and man do I love that bike. Hope something good turns up!

I'd do anything to get my grubby hands on a Raleigh Burner BMX in red and black...I know the feeling.

By do anything I mean gladly pay up to $100 so long as its location was convenient.

OH here we go!

Just got a call from my Landlord...he's gonna be out but he's leaving them leaning against the Garage for me...."There's a Purple one and a Red One" he says.

no doubt the Giant is the Purple one.

I'm betting they're both MTBs. I had a nice Canyon Express I built up for someone as a single speed.

Zaphod...there's a Peugeot available inexpensively in Abington. I'd get it myself, but I'm Never Going Back to my Old School.

Wait, this is your former landlord? Are you sure you didn't leave some bikes behind when you moved out of your place?
