Private Stash: Spyder 500

My parents are renovating their house and that means they’re clearing out things that have been stored there for awhile. Luckily for me that means adding something pretty wicked to my private stash. A Spyder 500 bicycle.

Spyder 500

My mom had this when she was a child in the 1960s. That daisy-covered bucket banana seat is in fantastic condition, I just love it. There are a few condition issues, a little bit of rust here and there, I’ll probably have to replace the tires, but other than that I’m new to maintaining vintage bikes. There’s going to be a lot of research going on to figure out what I should be doing, especially since my parents also have their 1970s bikes from college. Any tips?
