Around 12 months ago, I ferreted out some bits and pieces that were from kerbside pickups and freecycle and decided to build a ghetto bike to leave at the inlaws place at Goolwa.Limited shed space means this thing spends it’s time stored in an old canvas bag behind the FIL’s shed, so given the salty environment I wanted it to be somewhat disposable.Frame is an ol Hiten Malvern star,Steel 27’ rims with busted arse gumwalls.Screw on rear cluster is CIG fixed by me bro in laws arc welder,and aint goin nowhere.Shitty saddle and steel bars from an ol step through and she’s ready to roll.Not a bad ol scoot to duck down to the brewery on or shops and leave unattended without to much fear of theft.
Spent a few days down there this week and used it heaps given the weather, to ride with Mr 10 around the streets and get him used to low volume traffic.Decide to get a little more adventurous and do a dawn ride,and ended up clocking 28k’s and gatherd some pics.Awesome relatively flat place to pedal a fixed without any fuss, and has a brewery in town to boot.Handy if you already know the owner too.
Any way heres some self indulgent pics.
