1972 Rixe 3speed

Born in 1972, she's the Heidi Klum of town bikes. Picked up on the cheap from my local Flea Market, I've since spent at least as much on getting her new gears, handlebars, stem and chain. She's a great ride, if a little reluctant sometimes when faced with anything that looks suspiciously like an incline. Still, with a little cajoling in her native tongue, she normally passes muster.

Cheers! She absolutely is a classic. She's got enough lead in her to sink a rhino but the satisfaction one feels after finally getting to the top of those pesky hills is MASSIVE.
