My New Old Bike

I've wanted a vintage bicycle for ages and I finally got this one (or have been loaned one long-term!) from my boyfriend's Dad. He found it in his garage and gave it a spruce up and its looks as good as new, even though it is 36 years old, now I just need a bell and a basket. Word of warning to others wishing to get your hands on a vintage cycle - they are pretty hard work to pedal even on a slight hill as the gears of yesteryear don't seem to be geared (geddit!) up for biking up and down hills - which is pretty much all of Sheffield, then, but its all good exercise!
