Last week a FB post by Andy Ypsilanti alerted Dusty D to the startling news that Ann Arbor's ReUse Center had some of the bicycles from the closing GM plant.
Dusty D immediately snapped to attention!
My husband very kindly and considerately offered to swing by on a work break and take a gander.
Well, he got there at the crack of 9 and managed to snag one of the bikes! I think he picked the best one. Check out the basket. It appears to have been a DIY project. It has life and personality and the mark of its anonymous makers.
Would you believe he managed to fit this beast into his Geo Metro? Yessir. He's a bit of a magician at times.
Dusty D is thrilled that her resourceful and kind husband grabbed this historic and irreplaceable vehicle. I was so overjoyed about it I wrote it up for the Courier. Thanks to Gary Urick at the ReUse Center and to the two plant workers, Mr. D. and Mr. G., who kindly gave me their time and talked with me. I appreciate it!
