Project Bike

Over the holidays I acquired a bicycle. sjwalters left California and locked his bike behind my building.

It is an old Dawes Galaxy; built in the late 70s. According to Walters, it has been sitting in a garage for the last twenty years.

I spent Saturday afternoon stripping it. The brakes look fine, but the entire drivetrain needs to be replaced (the front derailleur snapped in half on a trip up Mount Madonna this fall). And something needs to be done with the paint.

Should be fun.
