Nope - its brand new ( had been locked up for a few years in the box in a garage,,,housing mice, rats etc... )


But I am bored, and my wife is overseas for a week

So I want to EVIL her up.... the Chopper that is

Maybe - by the time I start stripping her again - I will like the glossy orange.......

Original stem was - "C*&%^$^-

Replaced it with a good alu BMX stem..

Took her for a 5Km ride today..

Single speed - Choppers not for sissies....

My legs got a hectic - burning workout - hurt more than any 20 - 30 km Mtb ride....

Got lotsa - thumbs up while riding in my Sendra Boots Jeans and tee...


Will paint her next week and post pics..


The ride is unusual - low sitting position - works the thighs - hard..


A real fun - cruising bike...

Yep, could not fit the bike on the couch..

so coffee table was next option

I also put her together in the lounge, while my "wife" is overseas..

much warmer than the garage.........

I did the spraying in the garage, tho......


Now I still have 5 days alone - left, - what to do???
