    I thought I posted in this thread already, but don't see the little green arrow, so I guess I didn't.

    A few years ago a local shop had this bike sitting outside along with a few real junkers. Not sure it was headed for the dump, but the weather wasn't going to help it. The guy let it go for $20 ! Couldn't find much about the Weros brand. I will probably strip it and try to find homes for the frame & parts. I have too much already.

    I never heard of either, but the previous owner must have thought enough of it to slap on Dura Ace stuff. I found a hint on the internet that it may have been Swiss made and that it may have connections to Titan, Billato, and BMZ.

    I left a message with a friend of mine who "might" know something, I'll post back if he does.

    I saw a similar Swiss reference, and I think I recall their was a Weros team. Maybe it was a short lived team with rebranded sponsor bikes or something. Seems like a nice 531 frame though.

    Snagged this old Raleigh a few weeks ago... $7.00 for the frame and fork and a bunch of spare parts I had kicking around made for a nice build.

    My catch of the day. I saw this pop up on CL, and grabbed it right away. All it needs is cleaning and air in the tires. Cost less than a case of my favorite micro-brew. More pix to come.

    I am surprised you got it cheap in Maryland. Bikes sell for high money here as you know. Not that I expect you to answer but on the eastern shore this is more likely. You were on it quick!
    I got a large frame 1400 once for $5 in nice shape complete.

    I picked up mine for a Macdonald... this was some years ago but still one of the best catches ever.

    Nice build. Looks like it was made for snow travel.

    Even without studded tyres it handles snow and icy roads really well, those Specialized Team tyres are sticky and as folders stay pretty supple when it is -25.

    Changed the chain-ring to a smaller 41 tooth yesterday to give the bike a little more stump pulling, snow crawling, and skid-able gearing... if I spin it out I'll be doing about 15mph.

    Thanks.

    I am a fan of 80's ATBs... the geometry lends itself to a comfortable and very stable ride.

    Has been some time since I rode fixed in the winter and realized how much I missed the simplicity... should also be fun on the trails come spring.

    The bell is a nice touch also.

    I agree...that is a great looking frame and spot-on build-up! Excellent work

    I am really enjoying the bike especially with the new lower gearing... with one gimpy leg this helps a lot.

    Today I traded an E bike kit for something I have been seeking for some time... two guitars, an amp, and a bunch of other goodies. The electric got tuned for playing slide and the acoustic has a wonderful tone even though it is not that expensive.



    Also found a 14.1 mp Sony Cybershot at a pawn shop for $10.00... it is in new condition and shoots well and I was looking for a pocket sized camera as my Canon is just a little bulky.

    My baby girl Amore... macro setting.

    P.S.

    The baby girl is eleven years old... she hates the camera and was preparing to kill it while the boy was hiding behind her.
