My buddy found his bike!

I don't know much about the story, I'll update later. This is my buddies bike from when he was a kid. He did a newspaper route to buy it. He moved away about 20 years or so from Illinois to Colorado and left it behind without thinking or really caring. I'd heard him talk about it on occasion (I've known him for 12 years) and he always assumed it was gone forever. Last week he found out it was at his sisters ex-husbands. Pretty cool and looks in good shape!

Re: My buddy found his bike!

Wow amazing shape. I wonder if that’s the way he bought it. My local bike shop would take a f/f and add different pieces they thought would appeal to the kids.

I'll try and find out this weekend. He always told me he had an old mongoose as a kid.

Re: My buddy found his bike!

His niece thinks it's her bike so my buddy is going to let her ride it until she gets sick of it, and then take it back. Hopefully it stays nice haha

Buy her a shiny new bike (let her pick it out) she'll be thrilled and you won't loose sleep over her leaving it in her friends yard.

Yeah he must have taken good care of it. Maybe he wasn't a fan of ghost riding or "I wonder how hard I can slam it into a wall" and stuff since he bought it himself!

Ha! I can relate! For years I thought my old bike had been trashed by my sisters kids. Luckily the chain broke so it must have went to the back of the pile of bikes in the garage and sat while I was away.
