Maybe @Sevenhills1952 is right...I am a bike magnet! On Tuesday I brought four bikes home (see my Post) and yesterday I brought home this...another Univega...but a Mixte. It's a Nouvo Sport, and I think it's the same year as the Viva Touring I now have...about 1985.

Only thing that looks to have been replaced are the tires. There's even a Cyclometer hooked up to it, which I really don't care if it works or not. But, another toy to play with!

So, 5 bikes in 4 days...I think I set a record for myself...

I forgot to mention that this Univega only cost me $50...so I can't wait to start working on it.

Also, the three Schwinn's I purchased the other day already have a buyer. :)

LOL! Could you imagine!!!

My all-time high was 50 bicycles. I can't go that route again, so now I purchase what I like and feel I can flip...or maybe keep one or two. But I truly enjoy bringing these things back to life.
It's a cycle (no pun intended) I'll keep doing as long as I enjoy doing it. Boy I love being retired!
