Rest In Peace 1982 LeGran Seville
My first project bike, my first powder coat job, my first single speed conversion, my first really dorked out mistake. I learned a very expensive lesson not long ago –
Do not leave your bike near pool chemicals.
By the time I realized the stupid I had caused the bike was a goner. Seriously, every piece of chrome or uncovered metal is corroded beyond repair. The saddle and tires are about the only things salvageable.
I can’t bring myself to take photos of the bike in its current state of decay, but here it was in all its splendor and glory:
I plan to remove what I think I can re-use and then hopefully find someone who thinks they can use the frame and fork and do some magic with it. Maybe yard art? Which brings up a related topic, why do people often think of land fill as potential yard art?
