It's Bicycle Season

Well, I fell off the face of the planet for the last few months, that is just what a little baby will do to you. But my sweet sugar pie is sleeping better at night, therefore I feel MUCH better during the day. So much so that I have been on the hunt for bicycles, I no longer feel like a walking zombie, hooray! D., my sweet honey baby and I recently relocated to the Pacific Northwest to a very bicycle friendly town (so bike friendly that they have bicycle lanes!). I went to a local bike shop and I spotted the bicycle of my dreams, and I picked out one that I would consider the bike of D.'s dreams too. 

You can buy this bike here.

You can buy this boy version here.

When I saw the prices online, I was bummed. My face did this :( 
I have some very good news though, today my town held its 22nd annual bike swap were people sell their bicycles and related paraphernalia. And look at the two beauties that D. and I scored. I can hardly believe how we lucked out! (Well, I did pray that there would be some winners there for us, I am positive that had something to do with our good fortune). 



So here's my vintage 1960s Huffy cruiser. The resemblance is uncanny, no?


And here is D.'s vintage Sears bike.




I could hardly believe how we lucked out! A little bit of rust on my bike, but I am looking forward to restoring it, and for $1,100 less then the other bikes, a little rust doesn't bother me at all! Now all we need is a little trailer to hook on the back for Little Baby.

Here's a couple of blogging girl's bicycle restorations that are making me excited to tackle my own, oh and I'm going to add a basket to my handlebars!


If anyone knows of any other bloggers doing bicycle restorations, please leave me a link in the comments!

  3. You are lucky to be in the Pacific Northwest! I did a bicycle tour through that area a couple years ago, and it was incredible. The infrastructure was really impressive. Hope you enjoy riding your new-to-you bikes!

  4. Oh my goodness that is an amazing score! I wish my town did a bike swap, I have been bike-less for many years now, and really want to get a new/new to me bike. Seriously congrats on your find!
