I am looking for a new home for this bike. Posting the bike for people to see it. I found a new home for the bike! The Theatre in Stratford, ON now owns the bike. Whether they use in plays or rent it out to production companies is up to them.

It was only a short test ride. I only had my my helmet with me. The bike is now gone so I do not worry about now. It was a great building experience to do though.
