so i guess you didn't buy the bike directly from Heidi. curious how it got from her to the shop you bought it from, or was that part of the consignment agreement?

glad to hear it's found it's way to someone who's genuinely appreciates it's heritage and reached out the original owner. great story, thanks for sharing! :D
