A little bit about it: I bought this old ten speed from a bike shop in Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada, at a very low price. I bought a seat, because the original one was all open on the right side. I also bought a pannier rack to carry my books and my back pack when I go to school. Then, I bought a new Bar Tape. I had to change the bolt and the nut that squeezes the frame on the seat pole because the old one was rusted and I stripped it. Finally I had to buy two cotter pins to lock and hold the pedals. (I broke both original cotter pins) I got this bike 2 weeks ago, so I don’t really know the bike’s history. Now I just hope that the frame is tough enough because I’m on my bike 20-40 km every day. I believe that an old bike is a good didactic tool for people who want to learn some mechanic bases.
PS: My English is not the best because it’s my second language. (I’m speaking French mainly). Thank you.
