my new obsession: bikes

I've recently become crazy obsessed with vintage bikes. I find them orgasmicly beautiful and everything about them is amazeballs. I believe it was Bekuh's remodel of her vintage bike that got me crazy about getting my own bike and spicing it up. I've been running like a mad man through every website searching for the perfect vintage bike for cheap. While looking, I came to adore the look of a Schwinn bike. I think they are super pretty and I just love the look of the vintage models.

A few days ago, I found the perfect one on craigslist for a really good price. I almost fell off my bed with excitement when I grabbed my phone and called the dude asking if he still had it, and he did!! WOOT WOOT!! I'm still waiting to go get it, just to make sure that I do want to get the bike and commit to remodeling it (my boyfriend would be so proud of me). The bike man lives about an hour from my house an my friend Bria and I are going to a festival in a few weeks that drives right through where he lives....sooooo, I might end up coming back with a beautiful vintage bike. And I'm dying inside.

Just so this post has some pretty pictures, I decided to share with you some of my favorite pictures of beautiful vintage bikes that make my mouth water. If they don't to yours, oh well.
