    We need photos! $5 for ANY bike which can be ridden (and especially one in good shape) is a good deal.

    We could probably tell you more with photos, and a list of the components.

    well when i bought it i didnt know anything about bikes (i still dont know very much) or what bikes i had were good and which ones werent. i had 2 schwinns, my miyata, and a raleigh and the miyata was the cheapest so i decided to practice painting on it and try flop n chopping my handlebars and making a suicide hub or a bumbike, im not sure if its the same thing.

    heres a picture of what it looks like now.

    heres an older picture from right after i flop and chopped the handlebars.

    those are the only 2 pictures i have.
    i probably should'nt have painted it or done anything else to it, but it seemed like a good idea at the time.
    i dont really know too much about it other than its a 1982 and has suntour parts.




    oh and the seats from the raleigh because it came with some huge seat.
    and the back brakes went to a schwinn without front brakes and a disc brake in the back.

    the Schwinn's serial number is 72489596 i think. its kind of worn and hard to tell.
    from looking on http://www.bunchobikes.com/serialnumber4.htm, the only year that the serial numbers start with a 7 was 1957, but they all are 7d, 7e or 7f. mines definitely 72 in the beginning.
    its painted because it had a lot of rust when i got it and i dont remember what kind it is.
