I think I'm ready for a project bike--something to convert into either a fixie or a s/s.
I came across this one, not far from me:
Original owner. Turns out the guy has a side business restoring and re-selling vintage Corvettes, so it's likely the bike's in pretty good shape.
Anybody know anything about this bike?? Might it be a good starting place for such a project (if price works and size is appropriate)? Anybody think there any whammies in store, like obsolete BB threading/shell size, oddball steering tube for which only the OEM headset will work ... or anything of that nature ... or just that the asking price is way to high to scrap the components and turn it into a fixie or s/s?
I'd be grateful for any advice on this one....
