Borrowing from Kona, I named my next project Mrs Robinson Koo-koo-ka-choo. She is an 1890 - 1893 Pope Mfg ladies safety. I bought her for fiddy dollars as part of a deal on another bike. I almost passed on her but she has some really good bones. My plan on her is to retain her original character and not alter anything that can't be undone. She is about 130 years old so original parts are scarce or impossible to find. Yep, a turn of the century rat- rod. First step is a full photo documentation followed by PB Blaster on every nut and bolt and patience grasshopper, patience. I ordered some Velocity Blunt 700c x 35 rims to replace the long rotted out wood clad rims. I've never built a wheel so this is a learning experience. I also have an early long spring ladies saddle coming. My budget on this build is $500 and I think it can be done. So, without further ado, here is Mrs Robinson.
