    I'm surprised the hybrids don't get snatched up more often to build a poor man's cyclocross bike

    I got this '91 CrissCross from my dad's SO for a very low price. She was cleaning out her garage and kindly undersold it to me. I intended to flip it, but to my surprise and delight, my younger son elected to leave his new 29er home and take the CrissCross to campus in Ann Arbor, where I believe its hybrid characteristics will serve him well. Although he did say the bike didn't do well in the snow and ice that arrived a couple days ago, and wished for his MTB again. Here are the photos. My C&V 1972 Suburban is in the background of the last two:

    Well, the Dump coughed up yet another gem, or at least a gem in the rough. How about an eighties something Marinoni with full Campy Super Record. Sadly, the bike is a 58cm, too big for me, and looking for a new home as I type...

    Winter has fallen on Thunder Bay but I still have a few nice old road bicycles, and a couple of roadsters, recently found at the Dump, also. I will try to get some pictures today...

    I forgot to mention that there was a spare set of Campy wheels sitting in the metal container, also, and they came home with me and the Marinoni...

    Jeez, I sure would love to find something like that simply thrown away! It just goes to show though? The further time moves away from the known value of an object, the cheaper it can often be obtained. People who search hard enough can pick up the coolest things imaginable from individuals who only view the item as, "old junk that's in my way",,,,BD

    Okay Randy, I know what you're doing. You're taking bikes out of your collection and posing them in dumpsters just to make us jealous, aren't you!

    Who in their right mind throws something like that away without even checking if it might have some value first?

    Thank goodness you were there to save it.

    I was, perhaps wrong about it being eighties. The rear derailleur says Pat 79, and looks to be original. Except for the frame set's cosmetics, the bike seems to be in sound mechanical condition. The components, for the most part, are very good. Yahoo!

    I have just about got the frame stripped of components, after-which I will measure it up, for true, and then put it up for adoption.

    Aw! Who told?-(

    Seriously, I often times don't believe the stuff I find at the Dump. I always wonder what the last nice find of the year will be. Up until this morning, it was my 1981 Raleigh Competition. Now it is the too big Marinoni, but that really doesn't count since it will not be a keeper.

    And, of course, my favorite found at the Dump in 2011 bike, my Motobecane Grand Jubilee. Sadly, the flow will slow with the snow. Sounds like a Kung Fu poem, or something...

    Hello everyone! I am a longtime lurker but first time poster. Anyway, after seeing all of the great bikes that have been saved I finally get a chance to post a find. Today at a yard sale I was able to buya 1985 TREK 620 for 10 bucks. It has an Ideale seat (needs replenishing) Sachs-Huret/Shimano components and bar end shifters. It is going to need some work but it is my size so it will be worth it.

    Thanks, it looks a little rough right now, but I can't wait to fix it up. This is the first decent road bike I have ever found at a yard sale or anywhere locally for that matter.

    SCORE OF THE MILLENIUM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    ...you mean 25x the price... ... Reynolds 531 frame & forks. Nice, long chain stays ....

    It's like finding a nice '57 Corvette for a grand. Worth putting some money into.

    Check out this website: http://www.adventurecycling.org/

    You definitely need to start thinking about planning some tours, if you haven't already.

    Fuji Grand Tourer 2.jpg I found this 1977 Fuji Grand Tourer frame in a local flippers junk pile, frame only. I swapped him a few frames and components for it. Before I repaint it this spring, I took it out for a spin yesterday. Suntour Mountech FD (in case I triple the chainring) and a Suntour 7GT RD like the original had. A very light bike, despite the barn door proportions. Fork shows the forks original color was blue, but I may be going to the catalogue for some options.

    (Copied over from the vintage mountain bikes thread; seemed appropriate for this one as well.)

    I grabbed this Giant ATX 760 from the town dump day back in October. It was about the most ate-up bike I've ever seen: middle ring worn to nothing, chain worn out, cassette chewed up, front derailleur cage worn through on the inside, brake levers gouged, frame scratched and tired but not dented, every bearing gritty and loose, tires and brakes used up, and absolutely caked in filth. The last owner used this thing HARD. But it was a quality frame with good components (Deore LX), so I decided to rebuild it.







    I stripped everything off the frame, tossed some of it, cleaned up what could be salvaged, and started refurbishing. I cleaned and sanded the frame before priming and painting it. Bars, seatpost, brake levers, and pedal cages got new paint as well. New crankset, chain, cassette, brake pads, grips, cables, bearings, front derailleur, plus some tires I had lying around and I ended up with this:



    Haven't ridden it yet aside from a few spins around the driveway; hopefully I'll get it out on some local fire roads tomorrow if the weather cooperates.

    Thank you, Chris-
    I may have to rid myself of the stem shifting.
    I'll probably post a thread when I start restoring.
    By the way, there was a cheap (empty) champagne bottle
    in that fencepost the bike is leaning against.

    Nice save 02Pilot, and great choice of color! It's a minor nit-pick, but I would pop off the lower headset cup and spray it black.

    Your as-found description reminds me of a Rockhopper that I have - it was among the most abused bikes I've bought and most of the components were utterly thrashed. I haven't repainted it yet, but I built it back up with better components and it's a great workhorse.

    Thanks for the comments. FWIW, the lower cup color was a deliberate choice, not an oversight; I decided I preferred a uniform color between the frame and fork. Similarly, the stem was originally the same color as the frame; I opted for black for everything above the top tube for visual consistency. I grant you it may not be to everyone's taste, and it may appear I was simply lazy when I repainted it, but it was in fact intentional.

    Ah, I see, it does look more "balanced" this way.
