This is my girlfriends Kara’s (@karakabangpow) 1978 R100/7 she named Zerhilde. This picture was taken the second it rolled into the driveway. She knew what bike she wanted, found a great example of it online and we went and got it. I hopped on a plane to Halifax, bought it from an awesome owner, then rode it back almost exactly 1,000 kilometers (620 miles) in three days to Fogo Island, Newfoundland, in late October. Rain, hail and snow almost the entire way. Totally worth it! You’ve never met anyone so proud of her bike.

Saw your tweet and wanted to share her super cool bike with you. It’s not a showroom bike, but it’s a great daily rider and a survivor. All props to the original owner who took such awesome care of it.
