Basket Bike

I finally built up a bike I've been thinking about for a while. I had a nice old Apollo frame(less headbadge) in my rafters that was a decent size (large enough for me). I wanted a basket bike to leave at work for running errands, and just cruising. Cruising on a basket bike is cool. So, here she is. Nice old parts, aluminum wheels, decent brakes (really lock up the wheels if you want to-quite surprising). And, of course, a classic, way cool, Wald basket. I like it. 10 speeds, very comfy, and a only twenty four bucks invested. New brake pads, cables and housing. Everything else I found at the local recycling yard on other bikes. I heart basket bikes.

Check out the cool quick release. bitchen.
