Beater bikes thread...

ok the name says it all, this thread is to post pics of your "beater" bikes. Maybe a bike you just have around to run errands or ride in the not-so-nice weather. Maybe its a nice bike, maybe its an old beat up mountain bike from wal-mart or sears or the like. Doesnt matter I just thought it would be fun!

Ill start with my old Schwinn woodlands mtb that i bought for $30 and have re-painted frame and fixed up a little, including some Planet Bike hardcore fenders

Lets see them!

My old Huffy Mt. Storm, near as I can figure it was made around 1989, given to me for nothing by a friend and at the moment needs the pedal crank replaced, I managed to snap the spur off the right side crank.

'90 (?) Specialized Hard Rock. Bought it at a yard sale for $40, installed an old set of drop bars and RSX brifters. It's my kid-trailer-hauler and grocery-getter.

I'm in! This one rides in the back of my work truck. Depending on the situation it is either my dingy or my life boat 1972 Raleigh Sports Standard that I purchased for $25 in 1981 as a last ditch transportation alternative. It has seen over 32,000 miles of regular commuting/car free living for me and my brother. It was just revived from a 10 year storage hiatus. New tires, a new rim strip, brake pads and light cleaning and it was ready to hit the road again.


Webshots is bailing out, if you find any of my posts with corrupt picture files and want to see them corrected please let me know. :(
