OK you asked for it!this bicycle caught my eye and had to have it.it was abused covered in rust seized dirt oil,you name it.i spent nearly 3 mnths part time getting mechanical bits back to normal.original paint was left after i scrubbed for 3 days with soap and water.it rides like a cloud,and its very big,i can see over sky scrapers with it.horse hair padding still intact.i feel like graucho marks when i cruise and laugh like pee wee herman inside.im going to come over to van and ride.but the massey doesnt fit on the bus.i guess im gonna have to figure out somethin.any ideas?thanks

every once in a while i could get a ride over but no ride back.im thinkin i could remove fender and struts and flip the wheel around to fit on bus rack?i dunno i would have to try.i would ride there but im thinkin it would take me 2 days 1 speed high gearing and sub par brakes,makes a long ride.i was wondering who knew me to know i had panheads at one time hhmm.
