My craigslist find of the day is a 1971 Triumph 3 speed in my size. The original owner has it listed at $45, and I'm going to look at it tomorrow afternoon. According to the post, it's in very good condition with generator head and taillights. From Sheldon's site, I've found that Triumph was a second-tier brand that was manufactured by Raleigh. Regardless, I'm pretty excited to go see it.
Any tips of things to look for when I go to see it? I can't imagine too many things that would keep me from bringing it home. Pictures, of course, will follow.
