Ack!

Now that my MTB is fixed and running well, and my road bike is ok..I am bored, I need a bike to work on. I've been looking around at ebay for something, but no luck yet. I'll have to clean my buddies bike for him.

Fubar, I know how you feel.

I just finished rebuilding my mother- in-law's Schwinn Breeze that she bought at a garage sale. It's really cool. It has a bell on the handelbar and a generator for a front headlight that's powered by friction on the front sidewall and best of all it has a green and white wicker basket hanging off the front. This is now a real neighborhood cruiser.

Go cyclocross. Get a decent frame and spend the summer building it up to be ready for the Fall cross season.

Fubar,

theres an old (and I mean 1960s old or older) Legnano frame and
parts up on e-bay. We're talking Campy Gran Sport, pre Nuvo Record stuff. I believe its less than 50 bucks...
that would be a good project....
Very cool racing history with Legnano.
Go Retro.

Marty

OK, Fubar5, as soon as you're ALLOWED BACK ON YOUR BIKE , just head on over here to KC and do a complete overhaul on my Iguana and my Nishiki. It will cure your boredom for five minutes, and maybe get me enthused about riding again. I could sure use that.

No problem man. I'd love to. But the work isn't included.
