Free bike, flip

A couple of weeks back, I jumped on a listing on Finn. It was for two bikes (for youths) and it was only a 10 minute drive from me. The seller got a number of people requesting them, as they were for free, but I managed to be the first one. All of 25 minutes I was out, picked them up and was back home. One of the bikes was in pretty good shape and one needs some brake work.

The brand is Velosa I think, or if that’s the model, I don’t know. Put it up in my stand and gave it the once-over. Lubed up the chain, adjusted the gears and checked the brakes. I spent less than 15 minutes working on it, and I’ve listed it back on Finn.
Listed for ~$60, but I’ll accepts ~$40.

Next project today, not including the other bike, is welding the lawnmower that needs it with my brand new welder 👨‍🏭 It’s been a busy day at work (although I do work from home) so I’m not sure I’ll get to the mower until tomorrow. It’s also a bit windy outside, so filming might be problematic.

Oh, and I also listed my old flux core welder for sale, hoping to recoup a little from the expense of the new welder. Just listed though so have to wait a few days probably.

This is the welder I’ve been using, and it’s still the original spool of wire in the machine. I listed it for ~$100 but I will accept a tad lower. Also included is a new and full spool of wire.
