    Judging by the view I`d say that is a pretty good climb up that hill. I will never complain about the hill at Indian-Springs again.

    I love the paint on both bikes.

    When I got an old bike I would always look at the scratches and rusty spots in the paint as something that needed to be fixed.

    With time I’ve begun to see the blemishes as a sign of the bike’s origins and its past “life” with a rider perched atop it, or leaning against the garage wall, or whatever.

    I have a Raleigh that was made in Nottingham and is made with a Simplex derailleur, if that helps. I got this for 8 USD at a garage sale, and it was a little nicked, so I took spray paint and applied it to a brush and simply touched up the points that were chipped. Perhaps you could do the same.

    It is always an inspiration to see a person love and use an old bike. He looks pleased with himself with his old bike and well he should be. Congratulations and keep up the good work on a fine bike.
