It is a Motobecane mirage.
I have some center pull brakes I can use on it.
good tip they are just sitting in a box.
I plan to work up to a longer tour, at the end of this summer or next spring. Practicing, in a way, by going going camping.
I live in a Vally with big mountains all around me, so on the way home I am going to be going almost nothing but down hill. And the much more painful climb on the way up.
I plan to start close to my house and then move farther and farther. Then try to make the "tour de parents" and go from Ashland, OR, to just outside mt. shasta, CA(Dads house), then from there to crescent city, CA(Moms house), finishing by going back to ashland from there.
