Hello, i (try to) save bikes
Hi. i deliver food, so I see allot of the city on a daily basis, and am always finding riders on the curb, or in the back of peoples trucks (going to the scrap yard), or get trade ins as kids outgrow their current bike.. add a few parts from all the old parts I have and get as many back out on the road as possible... what I can't use is returned to the neighbor, for scrap.
I usually donate the bikes away then, or the special one's get sold for cash to get more rubber, most bikes i find usually just need tires/tubes/pedals, and then they are road worthy.
so my collection is constantly rotating, and hardly ever is there anything that will turn heads..
but occasionally I do come across a keeper or two..
