I have it together now. I need to go over it to check that everything is right and then take it for a test ride. Everything is original spec except for the saddle, cables, crank bolts, and tires. I was able to trade parts-on-hand for the proper pedals and stem. All told, the bike cost me under $100 as shown. A shout out to Velo Orange, bikeforums members, my LBS, Testors model paint, and my late grandmother (for raising me to be frugal).

It took a lot of time, but I was doing it for the C&V clunker challenge over at bikeforums. The rules were that the total cost must be under $100 and you had to ride it 100km when finished.

I spent $60 on the purchase, $35 and change on parts and value of what was on hand. I had good bones to start with, so I only needed to be frugal things that I bought.

Mine is a bit small for me, but with a longer seatpost it looks like a keeper
