I am very pleased to be able to complete this bike so my Niece can get it down to Corvallis with her this week. The good news is that we both have the same car -late 90s/early 2000s Honda civic 4 doors and I was able to get the bike in mine so it should work in hers. The catch is I needed to do things like remove the basket, front wheel (naturally) and loosen up the stem to get it to fit so I will be giving her a crash course in reassembly before she leaves.
I am hopeful this bike will be useful and reliable transport for her while she is in grad school. And it will be nice to know a bike I built is tooling around my old stomping grounds.
I hope the finished product was worth the wait for those of you who have been following this series on the Campus bike. As always ride.smile.repeat.
