'I just ride to work and back - I’ve had it for two years. I painted it like this and added these horns myself - I like these so that I can sit low. I got this bike in Bloemfontein originally. It doesn't have brakes, my brother broke it on the farm - I need to buy brakes. It has 48 gears here, it still works, but I leave it in one place. I kind of stop with my foot, but it is fine, I don't really ride it hard. I work in the gardens and it is going oraait here in Colesberg. This bicycle is my vehicle, helping me to get to work faster.'
