I got a new toy tonight.

Some back story:

While at the festivities during the Wilmington Grand Prix Crit and stuff, I met some fun folks from the Urban Bike Project. www.urbanbikeprogect.org Since then, I go there about once a week and do some little projects, hang out, etc. They have lots of funky old bikes. Some are for sale, some are for parts, and some are the staff's bikes.

Tonight I found my new toy, a Raleigh LTD 3, gentleman's 3 speed Made in England, totally unmolested.

Still wearing Raleigh tires. Or tyres, I dunno.

Lousy photo from the camera phone. First one is the bike project warehouse. Second one is the bike.

More pix to come.

I think I'm going to clean it up, but not much more. I think I like it in survivor garb.

Hey that's a beautiful bike. In the late '70s I got one from a garbage can and fixed it up. I even had the dynohub. You can put a lot of comfy miles on one of those.
