Default Re: Something wonderful happened today!

Well here's the donated bike.
It's a Jeep renegade and is in fairly decent shape.
The engine turns over and has comp and spark, the chain tensioner is missing, and it came with a set of alloy rims but I'll have to scrounge tires and tubes after I swap the sprocket from the taco'd steel rim.

It needs a set of front vbrakes but I have several in the parts bin. I'll hopefully find a parts bike to scrounge all the details from.
The biggest issue is the tensioner as I do not have one atm.
I do however have several skateboard wheels on the pile so I may just fab one.

I'm extremely happy to have this wonderful gentleman back on the road due to a stranger's compassion. It warms the cockles of my little black heart.
If more is better, then too much is just enough.
If you can't afford it, build it yourself.
