An old friend came by

The owner of this Sögreni racing bicycle comes by every year or so for some minor services and a chat. We usually tighten the chain and lubricate it, maybe adjust the breaks and the gear a little (it has twelve) and make sure everything is tight and safe. This has been the procedure every year (or maybe one year the owner did not come by, we can´t remember anymore) for the last 35 years or so. This bicycle is from the beginning of the 80´s and is still running fine.

The owner is of course treating it very well, and it is only used during summertime, but we are nevertheless proud and happy to see a bicycle having such a long and healthy life.
