The seat has springs!

I bought this bike at a garage sale for . It worked, but it looked terrible with all over black and red rattle can paint. Too bad. However, this encouraged me to repaint it. I had Edible Pedal (bike shop in Sacramento) powder coat the frame and forks the lovely pink you see here. The bike is mostly original. I replaced the (non original) bars with Velo Orange Milan bars. I replaced the stem shifters with thumb shifters only to make room for a stem mounted child seat. It came with a super lame department store replacement seat, the B67s is a great improvement! I removed the head badge for painting. I replaced it by making 2 tiny aluminum rivets from very small aluminum rod I got at my local hardware store. I'm very proud of this 'cause it was hard to do!

Great color!

I really like the color! I have a pink Pinto (French) with the original paint and decals. I would like to paint it but don't think I can preserve the decals. Good job!
