newbie just got pretty cool old custom bike...

...and i hope to be able to learn to appreciate it as time goes on! My mother gave me her custom bike from the early 80's, and I'm on a mission to commute to and from school with it (about 8 miles each way).

Anyways, I lived in DC up until recently, but now am a Bostonian. I haven't really been riding for long, but I used to commute a few miles on hybrid.



...and that's my bike! the rest of the pictures are here.
