Single Speed Makeover

When I was born the bicycling craze was at its high water mark in this country. Recently Ben found a 1981 Nishiki road bike that was made in Japan and exported to the USA. In Philadelphia, vintage bikes and old saddles like the Brooks saddle are all the craze, but it's fun riding a bike that's as old as I am. 

I didn't take a bunch of pics but here is a little before and after for you to see. It's a good fit for me and Ben converted it to a single speed so I don't have to fuss with all the gears.  Hope you had a fabulous weekend...xoxo!
