On a whim and a prayer

Oh boy.Here I go again. I spotted this little piece of fold up heaven on ebay and figured ,that,really, I do need a bike when I travel for work.(well,that's my excuse and I'm sticking with it) I know it's too heavy to lug out to the airport but there's always another way.The cost was $110 and there's no more to spend.Brake pads are oki doki and the tyres look to be original. Just a spit and a polish and away I went.
There's another 10 years left in these puppies!
They built those old saddles wide and springy for a reason.Comfort city!

I really am loving these old Nouveau Styles. I'm 6'1" tall and the riding geometry, with the saddle and bars up is just about perfect,but that's a whole other post.
