Picked up this Electra Townie 21 speed last night, it was filthy when I got it. Gave it a good detail and removed the damaged fenders. Sold it in the first couple hours of being listed.

Today's find, I picked up an Electra Super Deluxe 3 speed. Had a nice lady's Brooks B18, Brooks grips, Electra basket, Electra rack, Electra white walls, cup holder and Electra bell I stole off it. Had to pay up for this one but the Electra rack is no longer available in womens frame sizing. That rack will go on my wife's bike.

I sold the Brooks grips and seat to a guy in Ontario this morning, packed them up and dropped them off at the post office. Sold the bike to a lady already as well this afternoon.

Found a few flips this week, got a smoking deal on the Rocky Mountain, it's my biggest profit on a bike flip I've ever had.

Found a few more bikes this week.

Nirve Hello Kitty adult women's size cruiser, brand new in the box. Check out the Hello Kitty tread pattern tires, so cute lol! This one I am adding to my collection for my girls when they get older. Picked it up for 100 bucks from the sweetest Japanese lady on Kijiji.

The Kuwahara was a wedding gift to the original owner I bought it from when new. Her and her husband had Shasta's, I was dropping off a Trek cruiser she bought from me and she asked if i wanted to buy her old bike. She was a tall women hence the large 22inch frame. It's been hanging in her garage for its whole life with minimal mileage.

All the bikes I buy go through a wash, intricate detail, and polishing to bring them back to former glory. It was actually filthy when I picked it up but the oil/grease/dirt had preserved the bike.

The first real mountain bike I rode was a kuwahara. I can't remember the model, but a girl at the campsite let me try it out, and I will never forget that instant connection. I became a mountain biker in that moment. Thanks for the reminder, DC

*Cool looking pop up too!

Thanks Matti, the pop up I fixed up a couple years ago. Did an exterior make over on it. It's a 1993 Scamper, too bad that gas is so expensive right now, no camping this summer for us. We just bought our first house a couple months ago so we're trying to recover from that change. I need to flip more bikes lol!

That's sweet you have a spot not far away! Our closest spot is about 1.5 hours away that we go to.

I had to do tires on mine as well, I got another set of wheels with tires and kept the garbage ones as my storage wheels. Keeps the good ones from sitting with weight on them and getting uv. Hopefully helps them last a lil longer.
