I just trash picked a heavy-duti (I believe they were spelled this way)

I was riding my Raleigh Sports to a buddy's house when I came across this beautiful heavy-duti laying in front of a house out for garbage. I grabbed the Schwinn's stem and rode the rest of the way to his house (flat tires and all).

After drinking a few brews and getting slightly tired, I decide it's time to ride home. The trip is about 5 miles with a 35 degree headwind, and I'm pulling a ~40 pound bike with flat tires.

The ride was slightly epic and totally worth it!

Based off a quick once-over, the bike will need pedals, tires, tubes, and overhauls.

It came with the rear rack, kind of a wirey one.

I'm very excited to get working on this bike. Mainly because I have never trash picked a quality bike.

Of coarse "Pics or didn't happen" but it's far too late.

I'll post pics tomorrow.

Good night to all.
