1971 Columbia Sports III as Grocery Bike

The Wald rear rack was originally for the Huffy project, but it turned out to be so gentlemanly, it hardly felt proper to load it down with a rack. The front basket was what was originally on the Huffy, cleaned up and painted silver.

 

For the Change Your Life, Ride a Bike Group: this was the first old bike I restored, and the first bike featured on my Old Bike Blog @ oldbikeblog.blogspot.com. It has changed my life in that I didn't know the first thing about bicycle mechanics when I started, and now I'm passably competent, and have done several restorations since.
