    Went Craigslistin' again. Picked this up a lunchtime for a song. Lesson learned: don't get a new toy during lunch on one of the nicest days yet this spring. Productivity was at an all time low.

    I know that no one here really cares about vintage BMX, but I just acquired this little gem yesterday for $40. 1984 Mongoose Californian. I am looking forward to a period correct build. Not 100% stock, cause that would be boring. Besides the only things original are the frame, fork, and possibly headset.,,,,BD

    Yeah, BMX isn't really my thing, but that looks pretty nice. It would be fun to sit on it and watch ET.

    + 1, it is a nice score but craiglisting at lunch might be the "dumps" for your employer, but not for us.

    Not True, have the trophies, the scars, and the memories to prove otherwise. I rode an '82 Torker, hard.
    And for US$40, you scored, big time.

    A customer offered me a late 80s Benotto for $50, that he said has been sitting in the sun. I went to check it out, and it was in decent shape, just a bit large (57-58cm). I take a 55cm.
    It's a Benotto Triathlon. Not sure what the original gear was, but there are 105 brakes, and Light Action 6 speed derailleurs. Front wheel looks to be stock with a Benotto sticker, the rear is a Mavic MA40.
    I think this is a Mexico-made Benotto. I don't know the history or specs to this model...it has oval shaped tubing for the downtube and seat tube.
    But $50...can't go wrong.

    Zach, I dig that Trek, similar to my Bianchi Tourer I am working on which is also brown/rootbeer colored.

    If that blue saddle is a Laser, I have one just like it in WAY better condition. Unfortunately I sent it home with my GF, and I won't have access to it until the beginning of June.,,,,BD

    Thanks for the offer Dued! Not sure what it is, but I'll probably replace it with a blue/black parts bin saddle I have somewhere.

    I found an old post that T-Mar claims this 1988 frame is high-tensile steel. But it's as light as some of my other cr-moly frames! I'll clean it up, ride it for a while and flip it, since it's too big for me.

    Literally saved the bike, sans wheels, from being scrapped by the coop. They gave it to me for free. The only shot I have of the 'before' condition is the fork:

    Completed bike - I only used the frame and replaced the components:
