    Yes, I'm very lucky to find this bike in such of condition in flea market and its not a stolen bicycle. I paid my previous Gitane frame for 3€, and my LeJeune 4€ all from the same flea market.

    Too bad I will not have time to clean/polish this bike, I only have time to take it a part and put inside the box and shipped to Ireland. I'm moving back to Ireland next week
    My Gitane frame and my Herrera inside the box

    Thanks! Can tell by your sig you're a Klein guy. She's straight stock with full Ultegra 6500 triple and Icon Graphite Series bits. I'm going to tune it up, take off reflectors, dork disk, etc., and take it for a long ride.

    Thanks it had a ton of that greasy fluffy gunk on, so a lot of cleaning to get to the nice bike underneath. Got it on CL @ $185. I'd probably keep it if it were not so tall.

    Just picked up a 1982 Takara Competition. Its in typical neglected shape, but the paint is pretty good, and it has a Tange Champion #2 frame.




    Got to love this lever set up... but I can use those flat bar levers on another project.

    Thanks, it should dress out nice with red bar tape, red cable housings, and gum wall tires.

    Actually a disappointment compared to my 1000 bonded aluminum and 2100 carbon bonded to aluminum lugs.

    What size seatpost does this take?

    Did you clean that up, or was it in the dumpster in that condition?

    The Trek? That's as-found, took the photo after loading it into the car this morning. The seller said he may have put a couple hundred miles on it since buying it new, and I'm inclined to believe that based on the condition.
