When I got that 90 old woman’s 60 year old girl’s Wayfairer bike, the tires looked like that as well. She must’ve let her grandkids ride the bicycle, and they skidded right through the cords. The tires were totally rotten too, like she put it away 30 years ago and never rode it again.
We have a populace of 90%+ of entitled rich folk. Kids are the same way. They don't care about nice things. Everything is replaceable to them so they abuse it and it winds up at the recycling drop off with tons of life left in it

Hmmmm. I've got plenty of tires, tubes, pedals, grips, better seat options

Just needs paint, maintenance and time applied properly

Maybe I could squeeze in another build off bike

Many parents today just buy the stuff and just take it back to the store for any sort of repairs. Their kids don’t grow up watching their father build or fix things like I did. My build off bike Outcast was one of 2 Chicago built Schwinns I bought from a 20 year old for just $60. He had no interest in fixing his grandparents bikes and couldn’t get rid of them quick enough.

Wait ..you haven’t ask for my address…
Oh sorry. I may have jumped out too soon.
Never mind.
