    Biscayne custom, need info

    I purchased this Biscayne Custom on c-list the other day for $60. Most of the components were no good so im doing another fixie project. I was wondering if biscayne was any good and if the sturmey archer stem worth anything? I would like your opinion on the bike, thank you.
    The stem and bars in the pic are itm and cinelli tempo.

    Nothing special. I cry when I see nice vintage bikes get the "powdercoat + fixie" treatment, but I would not crucify you on this one. Do what you want with it.

    The Cinelli bars are definitely worth something.
    Why "derailer" is the correct way to spell the gear-change mechanism: sheldonbrown.com/derailer.html

    No powdercoating here, if the decals are still visible it stays original. But i know what you mean, I hate seeing those painted bianchis and others on ebay and craigslist. The bars came from my neighbor because im selling a coppi frame for him. But what exactly is Biscayne?
