I picked up my New Bike today.
I am calling her my new old bike because she is new to me but she is an old ladies step through circa somewhere between 1975 and the early 80's.
A beautiful emerald green 10 Speed Ladies road bike.
There are few dents and scratches and her decals are little faded and worn, but she is mechanically sound and is a dream to ride..
Once my bum gets used to it, I will be even happier. I bought a gel pad to put over the saddle till my bum adjusts (not pictured).
I had been looking for a step through bike for awhile but they were selling for a fortune at auction, i managed to grab my bike for $35!! so I am well pleased.

So I'm going to go for a ride after lunch, I just hope the rain holds off to let me do so.

What a buy! I've been wanting a bike like this for ages, but I know I wouldn't ride it very much, so can't bring myself ot spend lots of money on a new one.

A 2nd hand steal like yours would be brilliant! Ebay?

Ebay is to expensive.
I bought the bike through a local Bicycle club that also take donations of old bikes and gives them a going over and sell them on to people that dont have a bike as well as providing disadvantaged kids with bikes.
