I've been working on this 50 year old bike. My dad bought it in the 70s and used it for a couple of decades, he was riding it on my first bike tour when I was 8.

I rode it for some years, including across europe. But it's been in the shed for over 10 years now waiting for some love.

It's new life is going to be as a single speed for the city.

Old bikes are hard work though. Axles not compatible, 5/16" vs 9mm, had an old axle in the shed to swap in fortunately.
