'85 Miyata 710


One out'a two?

This ones down in storage, and because of this thread I'm going to pull it out for today's errands, so thanks for the reminder!

I also need to post those pedals, they're the easiest to slide a foot into and super comfortable, I'd love to find another pair (or three).

Balance the bike in table salt - blow away the excess.

But most likely a fast camera, a faster friend, and balls the size of church bells

the twig as a prop is clearly visible.

I use a short piece of clear acrylic. Much harder to spot, and much easier to Photoshop out.
