The 1977 Raleigh Grand Prix Mixte
I found this at Wal-Mart. Not inside. On the bike rack literally rotting. Tires where flat and shredded off. It was there a few months. I gave it time and then picked up with the Burley trailer and brought it home. Originally, it was equipped with drop bars for a women's racing bike. After a season or a few rides I decided to replace those bars for something more comfortable. Then my son rode it off a curb and destroyed the rear wheel. So another year in the shed before I replaced the 5-speed rear wheel with a 6-speed 27" wheel. It has Raleigh derailleurs with shifters on the downtubes. The front shifts the opposite way a "normal" or latest shifters move. Wierd? Quick release hubs. I use it for casual riding, neighborhood trips. I once rode it to Cumming with Mary. I also used it on the NBB Cruiser Century in 2013.

Sears Women's Bike
This bike was a garage sale find. $15 I think. All I had to do was to air up the tires. Long term project. I once rode it to Tacopocalypse. It has been sitting outside by my shed. Yesterday was it's first voyage in 2014.
|Rose Manor on Scott Ave. Needed a photo of a green door. Originally,, had photographed the raleigh in front of the Continental for 3 green doors but the photo was crap, too much flash.|
|The Watermelon Series. Part of the July Challenge was to take a picture of a bike and watermelon by a lake or river. I planned to slice the melon up but the river area is too icky right now.|
