Wonderful story, great update.

Scratches, bumps and dings give a bike character, they are the patina of loving use...

Ride well.

This has to be my favorite FP story. Thank you for resurrecting the thread; I hadn't read it before. You gained wonderful perspective at a (thankfully) minimal physical cost and shared it with us so we could at least attempt to gain it and do so at zero cost. Bravo!

Job well done. Nice repairs.

Dawns on me, do any fellas ride with backup valve covers?
