    The pics show the bike with and without the fenders. I kinda like it with them esp/with all the rain we've had this winter. Some heavy snow and mostly rain. Weird weather for this area. Global warming???
    I tried to add some pics showing the modifications to the seatbut it didn't work. I'll try again later.

    We have an older fella thats a vet and he's into taking old bikes and fixing them up and selling them in his front yard , mostly to the kids in the neighborhood , for a few bucks. He sells bikes for 10 to 20 dollars or whatever the kid might have in his pocket. No one leaves unhappy. He calls himself the Pedal Pedeler and is a really great guy. Anyway the handelbars were on this little 20 inch and he made me buy the whole bike for 7 bucks. I just had to have them. I've never seen a set quite like them. Most strange ......I do need to move the seat back 6 inches or so...... Peace Tom in WV and Thanks
