Recently, I've been getting into the bicycle thing. Over the summer I stumbled on an offer I couldn't refuse. It was a vintage Puch bike. To say the least, it needed a little work. But since the price was very, very low(free) I felt inclined to give it a whirl.
I basically did a complete rebuild on the bike. I gave it a couple of wheels, a new chain, some paint, and finished it off with some nifty yellow tape for the handlebars. The entire rebuild took about a month and I spent just a fraction of what a used road bike would cost.
