Well, I still don't know if I did any good deeds.

What i DO know, is, that my day turned out to be very sucessful.......



Just a few blocks to get to our house, one block to go………there was a guy standing in front of his house, who just placed a sign on a pushbike: ‘For sale, 250 euros’. Unbelieveable, but there it was: an almost new Swallow!!!! I started talking to the guy, and he said I could make him an offer as well. In the end we agreed on 210 euros. He said he would keep it for me, but I said there was no need and pointed at my house. I took the 210 euros straight of my pocket, and handed it over to him. He was speechless, and I explained how I got to this amount in my pocket. He gave me the key and spare key, and wished me luck with it. What a birthday this was!

Nice! That looks like the model "Kwinte"

Kwinte and Zwaluw are from the same factory. Besides the logo there is hardly any difference. I found out they are assembled in the province of Friesland.

Very nice bike and who would have thought that you could find one so close to home. Wonderful day after all.

I got the subject matter all wrong, when the heading said "The Swallow" I thought the story would have been about one of these........
