    Default The New Beater

    So I have a new beater to save my car from the college parking lot. Granted I will still drive the bird quite often, at least it will save it some wear and tare.


    I picked up this bike for 50 bucks at a thrift store. Its a motobecane mirage from the late 70s, early-mid 80s. i put new tires on, replaced a brake cable, re wrapped the handle bars, adjusted the brakes, and cleaned her up. im in it for about $130 total. I know its a ladies/unisex bike but idc, it not super girly

    when i bought her:
