memorial day

i visited tony and sarah in columbus, ohio on sunday (30 may) to celebrate their daughter, harper, for living two years on earth. overnight on an air mattress, then for memorial day, we toured columbus via bicycle, visiting the topiary garden and a taco truck (taco pollo – $1.50/ea. -mmmmmmmmmm).

back streets, neighborhoods, business districts, and cobble alleys. the highlight: when tony said i could ride his vintage schwinn varsity that he converted to fixie for winter riding. the tour made my month, and more than ever, i look forward to riding my Aztec in its new form.

badge

this is the bicycle badge from the Concord Aztec 10-speed. i wonder if i can re-rivet it after i finish repainting. the bike also had a Columbus, Ohio bicycle license sticker on it from 1972 (!), but it crackled to pieces as i removed it from it’s adhesive home on the tube near the rear wheel.
