Who could resist...

Postby CTA » Sat Mar 08, 2008 3:49 pm

I just had to buy this...


In a moment of weakness, I succumbed to temptation.

Changed the rear cog from 18T to 19T. New brakes and levers, wheels and tires, inner cables, new rear rack since it is rusty, full service, spit and polish are on the 'to-do' list. The housing for the Shimano 3-spd shifter is busted, so I will have to track down one of those, since it seems to be the one thing I do not have in my stash of bike bits. May have to install a really nice basket...

My wife has already laid claim to the bike by christening it, Reba McIntyre. Reba, the Repco, has already been put into service for the Saturday morning ride to the Farmer's Market.

I'll trade you the spokey dokes for a shifter. I have some here somewhere...

I got something very similar of the kerbside about 10 months ago, only a navy blue Indi 500 of similar vintage. Everything was perfectly serviceable and it didn't look like it had had much use at all. Complete with front basket an carrier

Patched the tubes and she was fine. I had plans for it as a bit of a shopping/beer bike - but then I stopped and counted my other unfinished projects - so I rode it down to the Salvos, made a donation and walked home. I've done this for about 3 perfectly serviceable bikes i've found since.

What are these wheel sizes - 22"? Would they be a bit of a prob to source replacements if need be I wonder?

Is it a 22"er like my Courteney?
