I’ve bought too many bikes lately. This showed up yesterday after recently purchased from a fellow Cabe member. With the others I’ve bought, this one is redundant. In an effort towards sanity, I’m making it available again.

Previous owner clear coated the paint. I spent a couple of hours this morning and was able to remove almost all of it with lacquer thinner. There may be some remnants left, but the majority of the original paint is exposed now. Give it a coat of your favorite wax and you’ll be good to go.

I swapped on a like-new set of bars I had and new pedals and grips. Tires appear to be fairly new Duros, mounted on a nice set of S2’s. I’ve not pedaled the bike further than around the yard but my first impression is that it’s a decent rider.

$475 shipped. ...

I would really hate to see this bike parted out! I’m the one who built this bike up originally. This bike was bare bones when I found it. I added the truss rods, wheels, head set, seat post, better seat springs, matching patina chain guard and matching fenders from separate sellers. I added a nice rear reflector. I had a different set of super clean bars on it that the person I sold it to wasn’t interested in. I still have a newly cromed kickstand for it in my garage that I would be happy to donate to the bike. I can say that this is a good rider and a really good looking patina bike in person. I hope that someone will buy this bike complete and give it a good home, I think it’s a great bike. Lots of compliments when I had it. Below is a pic when I had it.

Last call, if it isn’t sold by the end of this weekend, I’ll remove the parts I want to keep and list the rest for sale on here.

This bike was on the market for a couple of months before I bought it. My purchasing it was impulsive and it doesn’t look like anyone else is crazy about giving it a home.

I was not aware that it was a pieced together bike as it sits. Given that, I won’t feel guilty about parting it.
