Old Steel Frame Bicycle
#1
[attachment=5146]This is my old faithful I had it through high school, University, first job, and a lot of other firsts. I found it while cleaning up and my parents place and just had to fix it up. The guys on the forum gave me alot of advice. It is still a work in progress. The bike is about 24 years old.
Lots of memories there.

I hope that a front brake is in your plans.

Ditto - you'll probably get not much more effect from the rear brake than from backpressure on the pedals. If you're going to have one brake it should be the front.

As for the bike it appears that the only thing that is still the original bike is the department store frame, but to each his own.
