This is a Crescent Hymer. We picked this one up from Suomenlinna. It had a taped on seat that was falling poff and unusable, the tire was off and the tube was out and wrapped around the seat-post. There wer cob webs all over it and the inside of the tire was full of dirt and leaves. There was a police registry marking that looks like it's from Sweden.
Yes, this bike was long abandoned.
My son saw it and begged for it - it had front shock absorbers. My son had been wanting shock absorbers (front or rear) and was getting really huffy with all of us. But, bikes cost a fortune here, so it really wasn't right to get a new bike. I, romatically, wanted him to build his own bike or rescue one or work on a used one.
I had lent him my Kuwahara. But in his mind, it wasn't his.
I knew that this Crescent was the ticket: He found it, wanted it, and would fix it up himself (with help), truly making it his own.
A quick check assured me that it was salvageable. We hauled it home. I pulled out a quick-release and nice seat of the other Suomenlinna bike.
He woke up and, first thing, put on the quick-release and seat. Then, I showed him how to patch the tube, put it on, and he started riding around.
The front breaks were so worn that they had scored the front rim badly. Too bad.
Other than that, it seemed fine.
After getting a spray can of oil (4,50 €), a set of brake pads (0,75 €), and a cycling computer for fun (splurge at 8,50 €), we now have a bike and a happy boy.
OK, so the rear wheel really needs to be trued. And there is a spoke missing in front.
But, the kid is really happy.
It's his. He helped fix it. It has a shock-absorber.
Can you put a price on that?
Ahh, yes, I feel good. It was the main thing for me to do this summer. He's now off to the US tomorrow for a few weeks. I hope he tells everyone this story. Makes me proud.
This is an old Huffy cruiser frame I found years ago. This is the first bike I did that really got me into the whole Kustom thing. The only frame mods that were done are the panels for the tank and rear brake cable routing through the frame. You can't miss the inverted fork which is an old Cannondale Moto 120. Their first attempt at a 4 inch travel downhill fork. The only thing it is really good for is exactly what I did with it. It runs a 20mm hub laced to a Sun rim. On the rear is a Surly free hub laced to another Sun rim. The billet flamed front sprocket was a must. I saw it and had to have it for this bike. I flamed the tank to match the seat. The Dyno Fireball tires topped off the whole flame theme on this bike.
