Jane's new bike

Here is a pic of Jane's snazzy new bike. It is a Rollfast, and even has the original tag on the front. There is a little info on Rollfast bikes HERE. It has a new seat, and has been repainted, but it's fairly original and is in excellent condition. Son Isaac has the matching man's bike that goes with it (also in excellent shape). I trust he is wise enough to not let it get stolen or damaged. My parents bought these bikes at a yard sale probably 20 years ago, and they've been hanging in the barn ever since (other than the time or two I rode one when I was home visiting). Jane's brother brought them out when he was here last week. Maybe for Mother's Day I'll get m'lady a basket for the front.

Welp, Dad, looks like you need a new set of wheels. Then we can go on family bike rides like the good ole days :)

Thanks, WP. I thought you might like that.

Carrie,
Yeah, I kinda had my eye on that $10,000 bike at Summit. Or there's always Isaac's old trick bike that's hanging in the garage.

Why do visions of Freddie Mercury keep running through my head now?

Ha! That's funny, because the other day we started singing "I want to ride my bicycle" as we pulled into the bike store where Drew was getting his bike.
