Jo Routens 1971

Acquired this light and confident Routens from the good fellow Goose Cookie, I put a campagnolo rear axle, welded the bars into the stem, 900 fish'n'chips to hang five. On January 24 of the year 2023 I tried to balance her on a steep incline in the shade of a wooded hill, but every time I would run back to snap the photo a gust of wind would blow her down. I all but gave up and went onwards, then of a sudden a herd of wild geese apprehended me and caused me to be aware of a steep grass hill whereupon I could balance her. Which I did, under the watchful eye of those herbivore.
