I already cleaned up several older bikes counting the Raleigh Twenty I finished just a few months ago. I have found these projects enjoyable and challenging to say the least with minimal costs involved.
- Thanks for the feedback. I've already contacted the seller about the shipping price which is higher than the cost of the bike. If it can be lowered, than I think I'll buy it.
It is indeed very enjoyable to redo a bike. And yes, I have the room for one more bike once my Dahon Speed D7 is sold. Yes, I'm selling the brat. We're not getting along.
This time I want to try this redo on my lonesome with a strict budget. Based on appearance though, it looks like I may not have to do much except get folding pedals for a neater fold but appearances can be deceving and I may be getting "a hot mess" of a bike.
Gonna ask the seller more questions about the gears, frame, distance from seatpost to handlebar, etc. before I committ.
- FF gets a whole paragraph and I get three words???? What the hell???
