My Mom got a bike a while back for like 10 bucks. A Schwinn Supersport with a 'ladies-frame'. After researching the serial number DGxxxxx I learned that it was built in April 1971.
She let it sit out in the rain and I saved the poor beast recently and performed a little magic. I added a shiamno front and rear derailur, sun-tour shifters and front wheel from the bike a got for a buck last summer. Yesterday, I replaced the shifting cables, cleaned up a 'new' chain for it put it back on the road. It's really pretty decent now. WAY better than what I started with.
Baby stuff. The shower did go very well. It was crazy to have the women in my family all be in the same room at once. Something that hasn't happened in probably 20 or more years. The funniest line of the day was my paternal grandmother saying to my mother 'Is your house still as dirty as it used to be?' "Yes."
So yeah, we got a lot of good stuff for the boy. The room is done and ready. --------------->
And just for comparison sake, the room to start.
