I'm so happy though, that this bike found a loving home and that a preservation is in store for it. Be Blessed, FB, you deserve all the richness and fullness!
    Your brother just outdid himself on this. He caught me completely by surprise. I couldn't stop staring at it. God bless you both, you are such an incredible chapter in the story of my life.

I asked him if he could pursue it and he advised me it may be possible but I must be patient.

    We moved back to Boyne in October and I reopened and relit my bikeshop passion. As for that 120yr old bicycle? Well, I pretty much shelved the excitement and Muriel's brother had not said a peep about it.

    Then came Christmas Eve, we arrive back home after a festive night with family and all is quiet. My wife asked that I stay outside for a moment. Ok. By then, I knew some kind of surprise awaited me. I just never in my wildest dreams imagined seeing THIS....

    The crankset, headset and front hub bearings went together just like a newer 35yr old classic racer. Now, I'm working on refinishing the wooden rims, new spokes on the front wheel. After both wheels are finished it is rideable but still will need grips and seat repair. Fun and challenging. After this project, all other bikes will seem easy. Here is a before and after of the most challenging section:
