As you can see her handle grips need replacing and guess what - they come in leopard so that's on next months budget. I've also decided she'd have more carrying room with some rear pannier baskets. Those will be next month also. Here's the ones I want to order. I'll post her finished pics when the items come in
Finally getting her ready I realized the old seat was shredding. Since the butter color has been discontinued the matching seat was no longer available. On a whim I went with the leopard - mostly as it was on sale. I liked it once it was on the bike.
I rode my old Townie last week and remembered how much I enjoyed riding her. In traffic it's so much easier to jump on her and run to the store. So I decided she had been idle so long she needed some work. Here's my son-in law washing the grease off. There were several places I couldn't get cleaned and he got it off with lighter fluid.
