    I was lucky to score this bike, as soon I laid my eyes on it I knew it was mine. Not sure where to start on this bike, there is light rust on the rims, the paint is a bit beat up. I am trying do decide, just clean up the rims, and the bars and leave all the original paint as is. I believe the seat was changed but the peddles are original. A link to a photo of the bike :)

    I live in Windsor Ontario the border town with Detroit Michigan. I have cycled Canada from West to East and North to South some 15800kms. Both these rides were fundraisers for the Alzheimer Society. That bike was stolen about 1.5 months. ago. I am planning on getting another Surly somehow and go around the world in 2020.

    This Peerless bike will be my river trail cruiser once I have some new tires on it.

    Cheers

    Makes my MS-150 look like a spin around the block! You are my guru.
