Guest Bike

I got to ride this sweet machine in this morning. 
I'd say it is a tad too small for me.
It's a co-workers bike that has been stored at the bottom of a swamp for the last 20 or so years.  This bike needs everything and nothing.  The wheels are rough an rusted, there is rust on most of the other parts too.
Don't worry about those cracks in the tire.

A fine patina or age.

On the other hand, I rode it 12 miles to work, it shifts fine, the breaks work and the tires hold air.  My recommendation is not to spend any money on a bike that will never be anything but an old rusty bike and just ride it.
