Newbie here scores on a few this week!
Well I have been kinda lucky this week. I found an Old red early 60's Cruiser bike in the dumpster at the local bike shop, I stopped in and they said "we have no need for stuff like that" as the bike shop guy was polishing the down tube on a new SALSA. I said Thanks!
I have it on Craigslist right now with another red cruiser bike I had bought last week for $10. $35 ea or $60 for the pair or Trade for a rear 27" alloy wheel. If I dont sell them I think I will paint them up and see if I can get a bit more for them. No one like theses out here in MN and WI.
I ran an ad in the wanted section of CL and this is what I picked up this last week.
Old Sekine - still trying to figure out what model it is.
paid $35 Needs a bath and a resto. Thnking of making a fixie/single spd out of it.
and here is what I think is my best find in a few months.....
NIshiki International Ole` Group - paid $50 for it Needs some cleaning and some TLC. wish it did not have all the braze on crap or Id single speed it. Ill do OK on it I think.
Then Last week I got this Raliegh Technium and the continental in a batch of bikes - 6 total for $100 Most of the bikes were parts but I got alot of neat stuff, and I just sold all the crap I didnt want out of it for $30 so Im at $70 now
Looking for a 27" alloy rear rim for this beast if anyone out there has an extra they want to sell or trade for. let me know what you need.
I put a breeze crank/sprocket on it and am going with Moustash bars and am going to single speed it. I just need to clean up the rims and put it back together.
Thanks for letting me show off my aquisitions!
