Another man’s trash is someone else’s treasure!

I found this supposedly dysfunctional Joe Blow Floor Pump at REI roughly one year ago. A customer brought it in and showed the guys that it was a piece of trash and exchanged it for a new one.

The folks at REI were about to throw it in the trash. Having repaired vintage English Raleigh hand pumps successfully in the past, I opted to take it home and revive it.
All I did was to bring the pump back home, inflate a few tires with it. I never repaired anything in the pump. It was in perfect working condition.

One year later, Joe Blow is still going strong! That its color matches that of the Thorn MKII is an added bonus!!

Peace :)
