There is only a week of school left and I will be moving back up north to finish at UVU. The benefits will be numerous.
#4- Post-rock band
#5- Record/perform solo project
#6- Wait for it... Join a biker gang.
Davy's frequent references to restoring or converting old bikes has rekindled my bikelust. On my mission I built myself a bike during my spare time after my bike was stolen... twice. I learned quite a bit about bike mechanics during that little foray. Now I want to build the ultimate commuter. Well today marked a big step. I was down in St George picking up some stuff from my cousin, Ken, and I made a stop at DI... Ladies and gentlemen, I give you my latest purchase:
15 dollars later, I am the proud owner of a 1974 Schwinn Varsity.
The original seat is in pretty good condition.
It comes complete with a non-functioning speedometer which I hope to salvage
...also a Salt Lake bicycle license decal and a kickstand
I am trying to decide now whether to convert it to a one speed or to restore it to its ten speed glory. SCIENCE HOVER RIDERS LIVE!
