    I got this trailer at a giant rummage sale for $62.50. I'm really, really happy. Now I can pick up a FULL load of groceries or whatever. I'm not sure if I can fit one of my dogs in it. I have greyhounds, and they're quite tall. Maybe if I modify it, my smaller dog will fit.

    "I got this trailer..."

    With a trailer like that, who needs a car?

    I know, can you believe it!? (Can you attribute that quote properly?)

    I had an Equinox trailer long ago. I bought it in 1989 for $450. I towed both my daughters in it. We had a blast. When we moved house, I GAVE IT AWAY to my neighbor and regretted it since then. This trailer is even better than that one.

    The rummage sale had THREE similar trailers. I didn't want to risk buying an extra. At that sale, I bought four bikes, one of them being the Fuji Cambridge VI I showed yesterday.

    I bough that same model trailer used off e-bay 10 years ago for $80. Three kids and a few thousand miles later it was still in great shape. It was great for pulling the kids around because the majority of the time they would fall asleep and I could ride for hours.

    My youngest is now 6, so I traded it to a friend's daughter for a small Trek mountain bike for my son. She lives car-less in New York city and wanted it to haul her dog around. I am sure you could modify it to make it taller.

    Lots of mtb's have been turning up here recently and they are dirt cheap. This trio includes a 24" Nishiki, a Trek 830 with a tweaked front wheel and a nice Performance M-506 for a total of $37.

    I also stumbled across a CL deal for a bundle of 25 new oem gumwall mtb tires with tubes for $40 = $1.60 each!

    Local Craigs List find, a kind of tired 1990(?) Lotus MTB. I have a soft spot for Lotus (I have three right now), so I went ahead and picked it up.

    Components are an odd mix, Suntour FD, Shimano Deore RD, Shimano shifters. The component code on the crank set is March 1982, but I do not believe the bike is that old. FD has a December 1989 code, which seems closer. I do not see model name anywhere.

    Frame is all cromoly. This tubing decal is a new one to me. The fork has a different cromoly decal.

    Great catch! I used to walk away from all MTBs. But I have changed my tune. There are buyers out there for MTBs as long as you get them at a low price.

    Love the deal on the tires, incredible!

    The other day I found a tiny Peugeot mixte. I think it is early 80's vintage. Model is a M-46 with 24 inch wheels, and the seatpost measures all of 16 inches. Once I track down some new tires for it I hope it will make a short, desperate-for-wheels college student in the Bay Area very happy.

    Good find. The month before I moved here (the middle of nowhere) slightly older versions of these were popping up left and right for $25-$50. I wanted one because my bike is my only transportation and I figured it would be handy for all the things you mentioned. They were so common that I thought "I'll just buy one when I get up there so I don't have to move it." I haven't seen one since.

    I guess I really should have snatched up all of the ones I saw. It really was a lucky catch, because I've been looking and waiting for a while.

    I do see them on craigslist every so often for $100. Also, a neighbor of mine got one at Target, new, for about $85. It has a steel frame, so it's heavy, but otherwise, it's perfectly good. This one is only about 20 pounds.

    I did not take pictures before I began disassembly (darn!).

    I got a great deal, the bike was abandoned in our building. We did a cleanout of the bike room and it was left. I think it used to belong to a guy who sold and left a lot of junk in the basement and his unit. It was sitting so long the tires came off in bits. Mine now!

    I am going to clean it up, lube moving parts, replace tires and put it on the road. Will do more after I ride it a while. Will post pictures when it goes back together.

    I finally got around to taking a picture of my free Bianchi. Lots of cleaning and polishing to get here.
    From what I can tell from other posts on this forum it is a 1990 Bainchi Axis, and it was apparently bone stock until I replaced the tape and tires.
    Really happy with the way it turned out. Rides great, nice and smooth and good both on and off road.

    Now if someone could please tell me what the little tab inside the right rear stay is for?
    Also, the frame had a point for attaching one end of a long pump, are these still available anywhere or am I doomed to use a clamp style retainer for the other end?

    Thanks

    A pick would help, but I would guess a chain hanger. The Bianchi is the right age for one of those braze-ons to be included.

    Yup, thats what it is. Never had one on a bike before. Cute, but does not seem really useful to me.
    Thanks

    It will when you need to remove the rear wheel. Great score by the way!

    Picked up 9 bikes this week including these 2 LeTour mixtes, both 22".......the blue one has a bent fork, tan one has alloy wheels, should clean up nicely.

    Also picked up a Takara MTB, Miyata 310 with Golden Arrow bits, Caliente hybrid, Bianchi hybrid, World Sport and a SS MTB wheelset with Surly hubs.

    Well, I picked up two MTBs at a garage sale today. Typical garage sale pricing (low). (The only way to make sense out of a MTB flip is to get them at garage sales, even thrift store MTB pricing around here is too high). One is a Specialized Hardrock Classic, the other is a Fuji MX 450. Both are knee deep in dirt, but appear to be pretty decent under that "protective" coating.

    This makes seven bikes this week, four road bikes and three MTBs.

    Morphed the Takara into a rideable bike with "commuter" in mind. When I picked this up earlier this week it had a snapped RD with bent hanger, no wheels and the intigrated shifters/levers were broken. I replaced the biopace with a road double, replaced all the cables and some fresh rubber.

    GT CX series 'passage'

    Local Goodwill. Under $20. Decal on top tube says 'cross series'. (LOL.) 700c weinmann rims.

    Cost to date:
    New Shimano cartridge BB. (BF member), $15.
    New chain. $8
    Set of used flat pedals (came with toe clips) @ LBS $5
    1 new rear tire. Ebay- $20
    New JAG cable set. $27
    Brake pads. $4
    One wheel tru @ LBS. $20 (i gave it a try, but it had a major wobble, I couldn't get a handle on. LBS said they loosened all spokes and did a full re-tension / tru).

    Full dis-assemble down to every nut / bolt, greased, adjust, etc. Rides beautifully. Will be my weekend tourer, with racks, panniers. Gonna swap out seat, and raid my parts box to find a different stem. Couldn't find one with all this done to it under $120. (and I kinda like the triple triangles!)
