I had a mid 80's Capri that looked just like that bike, but your bike looks more like a early to mid 70's.

Thank you for the reply. I found this in a barn here in new mexico awhile back and not sure what to do with it. I'm thinking it will be a good summer project for the grandkid and I. Thank you again for the help. I'm jealous that you have all those bikes. heheheha

Thank you Kurt. I was thinking maybe mid 60's the fork kinda threw me with the way it looks like they are pressed together. I will watch the forum and hope I can repay the favors someday.

Thank you agian.
