    Flightliner Find

    This bike has been on my radar for about 7 years since it was posted on Kijiji and slipped away. It was pretty minty back then, but those long years outdoors and under a porch have produced a perfect patina on an all original ride. I took her for a spin last night and she rides awesome with...
