Birthday Bike!

For years, Rob and I borrowed my parents’ Motobacane bicycles. We loved the old-school French road bikes and took them everywhere. Then, my parents wanted their bikes back.

On one of our trips back from Alpena, Rob and I found a French “Bobet” bike for $20. It’s a “mixty” frame, and it needed lots of TLC. It was rusty, and many of the components needed replacing. I loved it all the same. Now I love it even more.

With a can of paint and some e-Bay shopping, this is what Rob turned it into for my birthday! Price: Under $150.
