We Are Now A 2 Bike Family.
Much to Bike's dismay, I came home with an '85 Interstate today. In pieces, literally. Couldn't get the motor to turn over with the starter, jumped from a car battery, and really don't have much hope for it as a runner, but I will give it a chance to live before I part it out.
Mostly, I bought it as a parts bike. I has rusty but smooth brake rotors and decent looking gauges. (46,000 on the odometer)
It's been sitting outside for at least 2 years, I'd guess. The guy selling it for his dad didn't know anything about it, or where the missing seat and backrest may be. Most of the rest of the parts seem to be there, though they've been piled on pallets all this time and show some wear.
I'll post some pics tomorrow.
Why ain't we ridin'?
