I said goodbye to an old friend today:
Here she is in some of her many guises over the years:
I was sorry to see her go, but I seriously needed to make some room in my garage. Sometimes it seems that I spend more time collecting and tinkering with my bikes than I do riding them. I let her go for what I considered a fair price (although her sentimental value was much higher). I only hope she brings as much joy (and fewer skinned knuckles) to her new owner.
I also gave another one of my project bikes to my daughter, so I guess I'm down to N+3.
