I totally found a 1960s/1970s Schwinn pixie. Bad shape. No fenders. Sad. I fell in love. Of course then I scrounged eBay. I found a red one, bad idea to show him. He wants it bad. I showed him a blue one. Didn't want it because it has 4 tires.
He doesn't want training wheels. Guess he is going to get to learn to ride a bike because I totally found on on Craigslist. Red. How awesome is it? How cool is the vintage-ness. Who cares I had to drive over an hour to get it.
|Before, rusted, dirty and that poor saddle.|
So we made the trip down a few Saturdays ago. Came home with it. Needed a new seat but my awesome self found one at Bike-O-Rama in Lomita.
|New Saddle!!!!! Perfect match, I cannot believe I found a matching one (vintage too!)|
|After, notice the shine, the rust was taken off the wheels and fenders. (bike pump is MIA. the boy has it)|
He still is getting the hang of it. Cannot ride it without help yet. But he is only 3. One day he will be whizzing by me.
|My kids is happy as a clam. And it looks great with my Murray.|
