Clever readers will recall that i’ve been wrestling with the Liahona Mission for the past several weeks. Yesterday, my friends Bill & Stephanie generously offered to let me use their bicycle stand to help try and break the seat post loose from the frame. After we had unsuccessfully tugged on it for a while, the three of us decided to ride our bikes over to the cycle shop to see if they could help. That’s when Stephanie pulled out this gem of a cycle to ride, and I had to snap a photo (notice bill’s sneaker on the left – I’m such a good photographer…):
It’s a Raleigh 3 speed, probably of late 70’s or early 80’s origin. They picked it up for $50 at a garage sale, and it’s in pretty good shape for its age. Nothing makes me more happy than a classic cruiser cycle in great shape.
