Diary of a dollar bike

Hey look what I bought for a dollar!
: )

I already love my bike...it needs a couple things...some kind of seat cushion, and new brake pads[like I mentioned] but It rocks...the rear wheel scrapes the wheel mounts a bit, but that's not too bad. I've already ridden it all over today and it's great to finally have a bike again. (The last bike I had I got a bit before I came down here freshman year and it was stolen within a month. : / )

I rode down 17th and Milwaukee to the Hotcake House, but it was way busy, so I came back...I think I will make the dollar worth it in no time at this rate...hehe... : )
I also went to Plaid Pantry and QFC. The guy who checked me at QFC confirmed my suspicion, that there is no helmet law in Oregon for anyone over 12, even when riding on the road. At least, that's what I've heard from him and others...it may be wrong, but that's what I'm going on. ; )
More bike stories to come, for sure!
I think I am going to get a lot of exercise with this thing...so much better than driving my car everywhere.

Not yet...I was thinking about it but I think I have been too tired to do so yet. Any suggestions?

hmm...what kind of bike is it?
from the picture, i kind of like the name marjorie or marsha.
i need to fix my bike badly...or maybe just get a new one. ol' besse is really pretty, but she sure doesn't ride very well.
