Weekend update + New project

Monday, September 26, 2011

We had a big weekend full of adventures!

Crafting. Borrowed Holly's sewing machine and tailored some old khakis using these tips. They actually turned out pretty well.

Music. We went to The Brocks concert at Sammy's. A.m.a.z.i.n.g. Seriously. Go buy their CD.

Broadcast. Watched it. Loved it.

Celebrating. We celebrated the engagement of Sam & Kyle at Olive Garden. Yay for marriage! 

Swap meet. Well I didn't buy anything at the swap meet. Although I should have. There was a great $5 Gap sweater that I wasn't quite sure about...until someone else bought it. Darn it. 

But, on the bright side, we got something even cooler. 

We got this old Schwinn at a yard sale right after the swap meet for $40.

 Obviously, it's gonna be a BIG project. So in order to motivate ourselves, we have decided to have a weekly post for updates on our progress with the bike. I'll try and save links and other online resources that we use and post those as well.

Nate is taking care of the mechanics and all that stuff. But I am excited to pick out the handlebar tape and paint color. I really like this color scheme:

This week's bike goals:
1. Take photos of everything on the bike so we can put it back together.
2. Take it apart.
3. Start sanding the rust and paint down.

P.S. Thanks for all of the comments on Hair Help!


  1. this is such a cool bike! seriously you guys lucked out!

  2. it is so hard to find old bikes for a good price. my hubs and i look every once in a while. usually they are like 240$. what a great find! can't wait to see the after pics. it'll be mag worthy i'm sure!
