Massey-Harris!

Now that I live in China Town in Victoria, on Vancouver island, and given the cost of parking in this area, I store my car far form the city center. That means I will need another mode of transportation to run errands and visit around.

I started looking for an old bike and found this 1900's vintage Massey Harris. I had to drive 9 hours out to Kelowna and back to retrieve it; definitely worth the trip. It's kind of a "beast" but I simply love the look. Although it's terribly rusted, found in an old barn, it still rides remarkable well. I intend to give it a bit of a make-over starting with a trip to the bike shop for a tune-up and a new set of tires.
