I ordered a Schwinn Southport bike today. Maybe this old fat man can learn to ride again. I shopped around over the internet and found the best deal on ebay (VN innovations).

Hey I learned and I was a big guy too. Still am as a matter of fact. Just take it easy and remember what Jim Valvanno said, "Never give up, never give up, never give up."

After I busted my butt on the rough driveway, I moved on to a church parking lot to practice on. Nice even pavement with a hill I could ride up and down. After fifty years between bike rides, I thought it might be a good idea to skip the traffic at first. I still think it was. I bought a bike rack for the car so I could carry the bike to a good place to ride it for a while. Now I try to ride it to a good place to ride it lol.

Also that is one good looking bike for a china girl motor...

I built a SouthPort MB for a co-worker, it's a nice bike. My co-worker I would say 250-275lbs. loves it. All he asked for was a bigger seat, he rides it everyday to work.
