    You may want to check out a local bike coop. They fix up old bikes and sell for a lower price, or if you have skills, maybe you can donate your labor and get a free or really good deal. Don't know...

    Good for you, but I doubt the average bike commuter wants to find parts for an 81 year old bike. That is in the realm of pure hobbyist, and such a bike would surely be considered obsolete by 99.9%...

    Take a shower before you ride, and carry a hand towel to dry off after you take a quick rinse at work. No need to carry a full size towel or anything else for showering.
