Bikes are okay, I guess.

I found a Raleigh Sports 23" ladies' 3-speed bike at the curb on trash day about 20 years ago. Kept it untouched and boxed until we moved here four years ago when I bought a gear cable for it to get it working, probably $5. Just bought two gumwalls yesterday in case I ever need to ride it on something other than the original tires, $30.

I was given another Sports and have about the same amount it in for similar parts.

The men's bike has about three times as much into it, mostly for the purchase price. I also got a Raleigh Tourist DL-1 for $10 and it looks to be worth every penny.

The other bikes in the house are not the bargains these were.
