New: Take part in the April Giveaway for an Electric Bicycle Roadster V2 from Ride1UP


Hello
#1
I just happened to find this site and had to join.

I picked up an old bike this weekend that has been in my grandmothers garage for decades. I have no idea how old it is but I do know it has a City of Milwaukee Permit sticker on it from April of 1977. I personally enjoy mountain biking but my wife has been wanting a vintage cruiser and this was perfect. I look forward to taking the time to restore this bicycle for her and really hope to have it in new shape for her birthday in June.

So be prepared for a lot of questions from me as I do the rebuilding of this bike.
