My husband had this mountain bike that he bought about 25 years ago as a high school student.
He spent most of his savings on it but it got awfully neglected after college.
It had a really nice nickel plated steel frame and I decided to give it a second live.
So, let me present to you the newest bike in my collection:
This is the dreadful before
And some details of the finished bike
It even has matching pannier bags now.
It took forever to find and order everything I needed and I probably spend more on components than average people on a new bike but I cannot let a beautiful frame go to waste.
