The Summer I graduated, I gifted the bike to a friend who was a Sophomore. We lost contact for a bit, but we recently reconnected and over a beer he says, "Hey, you know I still have your old bike at my parent's house - you want it? It's in rough shape though."
I thought, why not? If only for nostalgia's sake ... the rest is history.
I have no idea where to start. I haven't been headlong into bicycles in a bit. Family priorities and such - probably forgot far more than I remember, but, should I rebuild it or chuck it?
I'd want to make it a city bike or commuter. Can't really cut much weight out of it. I'd want to probably powder coat the frame, strip it down, see if 27.5" or 650cc wheels could work.
What would you do? Or should I just call it a lost cause and get a $200-300 big box special or something? :skep:
