Got a very worn MB-1 the other day. I have it completely stripped down and now know that that even though the paint is pretty scuffed up, all the mechanicals will work just fine when cleaned and tuned up.
It has the strange deer head Shimano (someone just mentioned this type the other day) derailleurs, a Sugino triple, nice fenders, a one-piece stem-bar with a "V" connecting the two instead of a single neck, and mismatched wheelset on it.
A couple of questions:
-what rims/hubs were original on it?
-would I be voted out of the club if I converted it to a fixed gear?
-unconverted, and all tuned up, what would it be worth in less than mint shape?
