It's really cool that you're doing this to help this man get his bike running ...

Good work, Eastcoaster! That bike looks like it's ready for the rat race. After all, its a mad mad mad mad world.

When you reunite the bike with the owner, get some shots of them together. It will be like extreme home makeover, only real and interesting. I'd love to see the look on his face!

My thoughts exactly ... some pics of the ecstatic owner with his ready-for-the-road bike would be great!

Gordon,

That quote and pic say everything that needs to be said ...

A truly selfless act on your part ...

Kudos!
