So, a year or so ago, I gave my beloved Raleigh M-30 mountain bike to my sons friend. His bike was dead, and I decided to do a good deed and give it to him, since I wasn't using it, and he needed transportation. Well, he had it for a month or so, and stripped the crank, causing the pedal to fall off. So, being the nice guy I am, I bought new pedals, and asked my father-in-law fo weld and tap the crank for me. That worked for a while, then it broke again.
Anyway, the kid started driving a few month ago, and mentioned to my son he may be getting rid of the bike. So, I told my son, if he gets rid of it, I'd like it back.
So, guess who called today? Now all I need to do is get a new crank set for it, and it will be ready to go, woo-hoo!
Oh, I am giving the kid a good used computer as a trade. I figured that was a fair trade.
