i'll be driving this next semester. it's an old nishiki 10spd that i resurrected from the barn attic. its been sitting for about 20 years. I had to reassemble the brake system and make a few adjustments. it's not as good as it looks in the pic, the frame has rust spots all over and everything else is rusty and pitted but I shined it up with some aluminum foil. surprisingly, the dry rotted tires and tubes hold air

No more Pablo San Lucas, you'll have to reset your title because I can't remember what it was

Nice! I picked up an 80's Trek 400 for 100 bucks at the bike shop. I ride that thing everywhere now. Saves so much money on gas considering I ride it over 50 miles every couple of days.

Too many hills here to ride a fixie. However, since I got a job, I may still piece one together anyways.

the frame on that nishiki is tall. I'm 6'0 and if i was any shorter i wouldn't be able to stand up with it between my legs. If i get a consistent summer job I might replace derailing the cables cause they're a little rusty and stiff

Dan: Fixie is stupid anyways, haha. Truly honestly, most overpriced stuff you can ever buy. In fact, bicycles tend to be that way as a whole, but if you use it, and love it, it's worth it. Or find good deals .

TDS: That thing must be a 61, jeeze. Derailler cables aren't to expensive, but usually you have to replace the housing alongside it, though you can often get away without.

ok guys. a few weeks after i got my truck i took it in to the dealership because they were replacing the cracked bumper for free. well today i got home from work, look at the bumper, and think to myself, "i swear there was a block heater plug sticking out the bumper before!" i pull up a pic that i took the day i brought the truck home, ans sure enough, the plug is wrapped around the driver's side tow hook. i jump on AIM and start talking to oldironmudder, and we go over where the core plug should be and what to check for. being that my truck sits too low to the ground, its hard for me to crawl underneath it and find the core plug. i DO notice a cord on the frame that has been cut though, but i cant follow it back enough to find out where it leads. the cord looks like a regular non-insulated indoor extension cord (and like all block heaters that ive seen. this cord for reference). thing is, its sitting in the middle of the frame, about 6" behind the radiator, and it was still sitting in the hose clip, so theres NO WAY it was an accidental cut. guess ill have to take it in to the dealership tomorrow and talk them into replacing it. heres a bad pic for reference. took this when i first saw it, didnt take a pic from above:
