Another green Schwinn Suburban has made it's way into my garage. However this time I'm not the instigator. My Mom retired from work about a year ago and she's been saying for a while that she would like to be able to ride her bike to the library. Like most people, she's also got a list of reasons why she can't ride to the library. Last week Nancy went out to lunch with mom and the subject of the bike came up again. Never one to accept excuses Nancy had the car backed out of the garage and they had the bike down from the rafters before Mom knew what hit her. They loaded it in the back of our Jetta and it's now in my garage. I took a few before pictures, but honestly this bike's in a whole lot better shape than Dad's was when I started it. The serial number on this one indicates that it was manufactured in December of 1971. I thought for sure that this bike was newer than Dad's, but I guess that shows what I know.
But since I won't be riding this, I think I might do a little more than just clean it up. I'm going to look into doing some upgrading while I'm at it. Should be another fun project.
