Sweet! Like father, like daughter. Who will change their stable faster?

If that's from the Schwinn hoard you're handling, hope you didn't charge her too much for the Breeze!

Solar,
I think it's great that you have a daughter that wants to have her dad teach her how to wrench on the bike...I have found and have a lot of great memories of my "girl wrenching with me on my old corvette and the excitement and gleam of joy finding the right size wrench/tool to do the job...grease and all.
Cherish these moments as time will pass sooner than you can ever imagine....my girl is off to college this year, and I will miss her.
You are a lucky Dad.
We are working on this flea market Moto now.
Regards, Ben

I bet she's the only girl on the block with fenders on her bike! Sounds like the two of you are about to have a lot of fun. A little girl about her age got me back on a bicycle again for the first time in about 30 years.

Enjoy!

She likes the classics like I do, her first bike was a tricycle from the 30's. My 13 year old wouldn't be caught dead on an old bike.
