Score of a lifetime today at the Goodwill Outlet...
Stopped in after a doctor appointment this morning, and as they were swapping the bins, they rolled this out... I practically chased the guy down and grabbed it before he could even put in in the rack.
Got it home, swapped the wierdness off it, and went for ice cream...

Couple years ago there was a guy on bmxmuseum that saw an OM Flyer in the front window of a thrift shop. Decided to check it out...it was ~'80 and he got it for like $20 or something about that insane.

I get an occasional good deal...but, not epic deals like that. Someday maybe 🤞.

This somehow develops into my daily ride... 😁
Today in my classroom modeling for the topic of mobility:

Cold and windy downunder in Melbourne today but I needed to go for a ride. On the weekend I dumped the springer on my 51 Panther and added a cromo fork, brooks saddle from one of my other bikes and a set of Velo Orange pedals the family gave me for my birthday last month. These changes and the 7 speed wheel set I added last week have transformed this thing into a really versatile fast bike.

Rode to the bay first, then through the city and finally Carlton Gardens.

Spotted this guy near the centre of town. He told me he usually pulls along a few more.

Love these pedals! Plenty of real estate.
