Come rest ye weary Traveller

If you are around my age and you had a ten speed bike as a kid, chances are it was a Repco. Repco bikes were, at one time, the top selling bicycle in Australia during the ’80’s. There’s something about vintage bikes that I really like. Is it the chrome? Is it the funky paint jobs, or just the simplicity? Who knows, it’s likely all of them and more.
Recently I was at the Green Shed (Canberra’s dump shop) and a mate spotted a blue Repco Traveller in pretty good nick. It was all in one piece, had a bit of surface rust and a drive train that looked like it hadn’t been cared for in a very long time. So, $35.00 later I had a new project. Read all about it here.
