Iverson 3 Speed Update
This one’s coming together quite quickly. A day to strip it down, a day to repack all the bearings and today, a few hours to install a new chain and a brake cable.
Total costs to date:
Bike purchase @ $90.00 (A little pricey but it was just down the street.)
New tires @ 40.00
New chain @ $15.00
New Brake pads @ $16.00
New brake cable @ $3.00
Supplies and parts from stock @ $10.00
Total @ $174.00
The guy I bought it from wants the old tires back and will refund $5.00…
The new owner has a $70.00 credit with me and will pay the balance off by future cat-sitting work.
I’ve swapped out the rear cog for a 22T version, so we’ll see how it works out on a shakedown ride. I also want to change the saddle for a sprung mattress one but don’t have a decent one in the garage.
Despite the online criticism of the Iverson brand, I found this to very similar to my English bikes. The quality of the chrome plating is not as good…
