That is the twin to the bike my mom put TONS of miles on back when I was in high school. I did not keep good track, I just knew that she rode it for weekend group rides, and then during the week she mostly rode it instead of taking the car for local errands. I maintained it, but did not watch is closely. (I had school, music programs, fantasies about being a racer, and a job at a bike shop, so mom's bike ended up low on the list) I do remember once she complained that it peddled funny. I determined that the problem was that she had worn the drivetrain so much that the FW teeth were almost missing!

I also sold a bunch of those and customers liked them a lot.

Thanks for the memories!
