Nelli knows exactly what is in this box! I went to the post to look for it, It took 2 weeks to get here-I called her from the post office and told her it came, I also said i need to go to the Library,and food shopping before coming home...
She only called me 3 times before I got home
How soon are you home daddy!!!!

I'm sure she's also trying to be more than helpful in putting it together..which isn't always the fastest way to do things either. My daughter loves to help, but I haven't told her about the little bike I'm rebuilding for her and won't until I finish it.

Wow!, It looks pretty just sitting in that box, plus her first(?) Concor saddle too!
Congratulations Nelli and welcome to C&V cycling!
Great work by the Dad! Can't wait to see pics of her riding it with surely a really big smile on her face!

The seller was really nice, His 4 children used this bike and have now outgrown it.After the sale He mentioned the tricot,helmet,shoes,and pants.Also threw in a N.O.S. SR Royal seatpost which is missing some small parts(see ISO thread if you can help)
So.what is the value of the extra items?-he told be to send me something-the shoes are too big but I prefer them this way then the other

You just blew up the C&V cuteness meter on us puchfinnland! That precious shot could go on any C&V calendar cover!

the smile should have been bigger after her first ride.
She loves it-like it is sleeping next to her in her room with a blanket over it.
this is her first bike with handbrakes only...this is a big step
another big issue is the adult size levers-they did make children size levers-rare as hens teeth
I hope to find a pair-I might put on turkey legs untill then.
little riders need their confidence and no be scared they cant reach the brakes.

CLB made a lot of junior sized levers.
Check at eBay. They have them for auction pretty often.

those inline things are not for me-the barsize is 33cm!!!! there is just no room!
on the same page I did notice the tektro BRL30 for small hands-might work.

If anybody finds the CLB junior levers please tell me!
I look in ebay.fr all the time

they look like this

Tektro makes modern levers for small hands, they might work until a vintage pair shows up.
