I’m over it now Doc., I can kick this re-cycling habit any old day … see, after my last ‘brace of Speedwells’ it’s no more new-old bikes this time … I’ve no free space left.
Uh uh uh, don’t tempt me now, there’s no N+1 anymore for this little black duck !
But I couldn’t help an innocent little drive around this year’s first council hard rubbish pick-up could I ?
Yet fear not, dear reader, I’ve shown such enormous willpower in bypassing anything not absolutely essential for the metaphorically-snowed-under recyclist … for example, I hardly batted an eyelid at the many ‘classic’ exercise bikes, mountain bikes, BMXs and even this motorised Road King MTB complete with a one-piece crank — and a blown motor.
Well, I mean these petrol conversions have been made illegal now anyway…
And I finally succumbed to the temptation of the 3-speed, including a lonely 20″ dragster wheel with Shimano 3S hub, and a 1984 Apollo ladies’ 3-speed with the same hub type.
Such a pretty pink, and I wasn’t even looking for bikes, upon my word Your Honour… ( but I do need 3-speed bits for some of the upcoming frames ).
O.K. then, I lied … but I can’t help it if I’m just an old planetary bike magnet, now can I ???
Happy Re-Cycling !
