    Early 1970s Follis Road Bike Frameset with Headset 63cm frame size

    Lower end Follis, not sure of the model, but it has some redeeming qualities over similar bikes. First, it does not have the oddball Simplex DT shifter braze ons. Cable stops will work with either stem shifters or bar end shifters (bike came with bar end shifters).

    Secondly, it has a real chrome fork crown, not some cheesy stamped chrome overlay part.

    Nice white paint, decals are pretty decent for age.

    I am tempted to go SS with this bike, as it has that "look" IMHO.

    Only $80 plus shipping + $10 to pack. Given today's good experience with bike flights, shipping should be very reasonable.

    Heck, headset is probably worth at least half the asking price!

    Dirty workshop and Paramount banner are NOT included!

    Bump to the top. Hey, HS value is close to the asking price.

    If it were my size, I'd probably go SS with it. Still might.
