As some of you would be aware, I've been on the hunt for an older bike to restore as a present for my girlfriend for a while. I came across one on eBay which seemed like a good buy, so I put the bid in, waited...waited...waited...and eventually lost.
Then I found another bike from the same seller, which I won for a small total of $20. Shortly after that, I got a notification that the original bike had been re-listed.
So when I went to pick up the bike that I won in the bidding, I asked if they wanted me to take both bikes off their hands. $50 later, and I'd loaded two good projects into the back of the wagon.
I'm at Uni at the moment, so I'm currently lacking the USB cable for my phone, but I'll upload a few pics as soon as I can.
This shall become my build thread for both bikes
One we plan to fully strip down and re-paint in a colour of girlfriend's choice, and rebuild. The other frame is in fairly good condition, so that one will just be a mechanical overhaul/full rebuild.
Looking forward to seeing if they come up as good as my other project, which can be found here
. (Yes I know the pictures don't work, I'll fix that up when I get a chance
