Look what the bike fairy brought! I've been wishing for one (along with a Columbia Commuter II) for about a year or so. Now I have 4 vintage folders. I figure about 300 bucks and 300 hours will make this a 3 dollar bike!
A little rusty in a few spots.....
Oh yeah I'll be keeping the plate, Its the best part!
Well, so far I've put in the 300 bucks. New rims, spokes, a SA 3 speed hub w/coaster brake. Shifter and cable, front brake, boingy boingy seatpost, chain, handlebars and grips, tires, sandblasting and (soon) paint. Only about 30 hours of labor and I do that at work. (I get paid to sit in a box on a snowcovered hill and answer phones).
