thanks - it was picture perfect, but wrecked 2-1/2 years ago and bent the 40-y-o frame. The best thing about the frame was the original paint, and it spalled at the bends. That's when I bought the International frame and moved all the parts over. FWIW, the International frame is much more lively - the main triangle doesn't like a rear load, and selling my rear Nitto rack and panniers paid for the new old frame.
I had a Specialized saddle (with a damage on it) to use for now, and the dried out hoods still need to be removed along with the cushion grips. I replaced the front tube, so for now it's rideable with the original tires, but I know not for any distance.
I took it for a very quick ride, and it shifts and rides great. Very happy with it, especially the condition of it, and a steal at $80 for a bike I'll add to the stable.
