Bicycle :)

This came from my parents garage, who got it from my grandparents garage but I think it was my mothers after she'd married my father. I love it. A Blue CCM Galaxie, from the quick searches I did it appears to be from the 60's - although all of those bicycles had hand brakes, and this one has coaster brakes. It's well loved but I used some SOS pads and some elbow grease this afternoon to get a lot of the rust off the chrome, now it really shines. I will likely get a new seat for it - and I really want a basket - preferably for the back fender, not over the handlebars but if that's all I can do - I will :)

The rust on the fender in this picture is before I cleaned it all up :)
