Here we have it, ready to roll. Check out that big-ass water bottle! Its kind of hard to tell, but that bag under the seat used to be a rich shade of orange. The tops of the saddle bags are now pink, and were once a nice robust shade of red.
Look at that rust on the handlebars! Maybe I should take some steel wool to it. It doesn't seem to affect the actual riding of the bike, though.
Oh, there's some more rust. Yeah, I SHOULD get after that.
In case you're in the market...there's what to look for....the Schwinn Traveler III. That's one of the new tires and tubes. I hope it holds up.
And here's my brand new helmet....$16.95 at Meijer. I just couldn't bring myself to get the one for $21.95.
And now, I promise, I really do promise, that the next installment will take us to a really cool place out here on "The Leelanau", and it won't be very far from my house.
