farm bike
« on: June 12, 2009, 08:47:27 AM »
As a child, my wife and her sister were given an old bridgestone 90 deluxe by her father (now deceased). They spent many a day riding and exploring around some 20,000 acres of a friends farm that they regularly visited, while her dad would fly around in his Tigermoth biplane ready to swoop down to let them know when its time to come home. As this bike is full of good memories for them I though it would be cool to bring it back to life for my own two girls to use. Can anybody give me some advice on the best way to tackle this, any inherent problems, where to start, how to get parts etc. The bike is pretty much complete with some damaged parts eg, indicators, speedo and cables. It was running when last used some 15 years ago. any advice would be much appreciated, cheers.

Neat story, nice to read, I would start on any resotation by taking many detailed photos of the bike BEFORE you take
it apart, great to look back on, and while you are at it, post some here for me to see.

I will be happy to try to help with any questions or concerns
