This blog is not about any one topic. It is about the many things the interest me and places I've been. It's about Travel, Bikes, Photography, Fly Fishing, Nature, Scenery, Projects, Genealogy, etc (the order of importance changes constantly!). Usually whatever is currently occupying my mind and time. Maybe something for everyone....or not!

1970 Schwinn Ladies Collegiate 5-spd
Bought this a few months ago at a local antique/flea market shop. Started taking it apart to clean up/partial resto. It was in relatively good shape, but had some rust. I've been using Evapo-Rust to remove rust from the chrome parts. Cleaning up nicely, but takes awhile. Also de-grunging all of the hubs, derailler, etc. There was no grease left in the crank (pedal) assembly! Just some hard remnants of grease and dirt! Also polishing up all the aluminum parts.
