Lucy may want real estate, but I would like some Athena triple controls.

My dear wife paid for a International I found on Craigslist. It's in fairly rough shape but all the parts are there. The bike seems ridable but naturally I started tearing it down to build it back up. Everything seems of reasonable quality so other than sticking on an old Ideal french leather seat, I plan to keep it all original.
My club riders have been toasting my butt when I've ridden my only remaining bike, a bombproof touring bike I built up from a hybrid bike I bought years ago. I'll haul anything anywhere but not necessarily in a hurry.
I just missed out on a couple of $300 Treks that were tons newer but this $100 Nishiki with an interesting ole group needed help, was in my 63cm size and gave me a nice project to keep marginally out of trouble for a month or so.
Merry Christmas to me.

The only thing I asked for was the book that is out on Japanese steel bikes. What my lovely wife will come up with may be way better.

Time. I've got more projects to do than time. Just more time is all I need.

A winning mega millions ticket so I can use half the money to set a charity, and a sort of halfway house for homeless LGBT yutes. The other half I'll buy my sister and daughter houses. That isn't too much is it?


OH I wouldn't mind a house or apartment with a garage to house my new BTV, bike transport vehicle.

As with most Continentals I hear their ride is a little harsh.
