fixing up my "new" old burley duet

Hello all. Many thanks for all the past and future tips on ideas for my Burley Duet.

I thought I would start a thread to show my progress.

Goal is a nice bike for my almost 8 year old daughter and I. We love to ride on the weekends all over town and make a day of it.

tires, tubes, and brakes to start!

Nice job!

Lovely to see old steel bikes kept in the fleet.

Lovely also to see the family cycling thing happening too. I really enjoy taking my 5 yo son out for a spin, even just up to the cafe for a milkshake.

out with the old, in with new! I'd be faster on this project if only it wasn't for my pesky job...

Installing a longer quill stem. I'm trying to have a bit more of an upright riding position.

Nitto makes nice looking parts!

progress! levers, cables, front brakes. Just need to work on rear brake, patch up seat, and figure out rear bars.

Excited to be close
