Black Pearl Samson NJS - Columbus Keirin

One goes out, another comes in. Parted out my Atala commuter because I hadn't ridden it in awhile and I felt that it should go to someone else. On the flip side, I spotted this sick black Samson on eBay and it was love at first sight. Unfortunately, it's winter, work is slow and money is tight. What's a boy to do? I dipped into the parts bin, robbed Peter to pay Paul, and used every available resource in my shop. The only things I had to put money on were the pedals and the chain. Everything else came out of my bike vault. What's next? Who knows. It's March and we still have a bunch of snow on the ground and salt on the roads. Life in the tundra isn't for everyone, but it gives people like me time to ruminate about spring and summer.
