Very nice and good on you for sorting it out.

Never fails, there's always a catch. The Googlesphere is always watching and prepared to help you remember how insignificant your power is compared to it's power!

On the flip side, maybe the frenzy will benefit the sale.

Pre Parting Out Bump

Would be kind of a shame, but need to generate cash for another project and can't afford the luxury of sentimentality.

Yeah, sorry for the guilt trip; belatedly reminded me of this infamous magazine cover from my salad days:

Drunk Stoned Brilliant Dead was an OK film...the book by Rick Meyerowitz is just awesome. A must for Lampoon fans.

EDIT, sorry OP. It's a lovely bike that anyone would be proud to own.

How could a person buy that beauty back in the day and NOT RIDE IT?


I can appreciate the museum beauty of it. Gorgeous.
But sheeesh..... I would never be able to resist - even considering 'letting it sit' would drive me bonkers.




To @cloozoe - At 57 square it would be a garage queen here, too.

I'm using its little brother as a commuter, if that balances things out and somehow makes you feel better...

Yes, I'm trying to keep it as original as possible, although one of the pedal reflectors recently fell off and cracked into a few pieces. Believe it or not, those reflectors actually reflect light really poorly! I don't know if age affects them, or if I am just used to more modern reflective materials being so much better. Anyway, as is and even with the fenders, it's still a pretty quick bike.

I gave up on the Google Photos. I could see the pix, some other people could see them, but the majority of people could not see them.


Bump!

Bump!
You might not be surprised to know that Apple users have more Google troubles than most. Emails too.

Bumpety bump.
