I'm sending out another radar ping to see if you are interested in volunteering to help rebuild some old bikes for donation to less-fortunate kids. The process would probably go something like this: 1- scrounge up a kid's bike (your basement, local garage sale, landfill, etc). 2--attend a first work party at my house to strip the bike down and make a list of required parts. At this point I will send the frames out for paint, and fetch up the needed parts. 3--return a few weeks later to assemble your bike with fresh parts. I have a warm, indoor workshop for you to work in, and would provide grub & bevvies for the work parties. I have done drives like this before, and they can be alot of fun. Please post or PM me if you think you might be interested.
* this is not sponsored by MMBA, mtn kids, or any other agency, it would be it's own stand alone endeavor with its own funding.
*mechanical expertise is NOT required! Folks can help with getting sponsors, arranging donations, and appropriating incidentals such as locks and helmets. what ever your talents are, they can be well employed here!
*Lastly, would everyone please have the courtesy not to hijack this post, there's a whole BB waiting for those other topics (that's not a dare Scat, I can still put chain lube in your beer...)
Thanks in advance everyone--look forward to seeing you on the trails soon.
I like-a dance the cha-cha...
