never assume

Every bike teaches me a lesson..this one taught me never assume. What started off as a nice little orange Raleigh Record with a 3-speed Sturmey Archer Hub soon exposed itself in to Frankenbike. There was rust on all the fastener, nuts and bolts and pedals as well as the wheels. Like Raleigh had started cutting corners and using inferior parts. But after scrubbing off much rust on the wheels, I found the ‘Schwinn’ label. The wheels and the Sturmey Archer Hub is off another bike altogether.

I am at a loss to decide what to do. I can put it back on craig’s list or break it up for parts. I suppose if I can move the bike, I should and put the money into another bike.
