    I picked up a bunch of wool from a company that was going out of business. Mom made us all blankets, siblings/grandkids, some were like what you have on the chair. Good spot for that...

    never really been that into Schwinns (ok, i'd probably take a Paramount), but picked up these two Cross family members locally but separately in the past few weeks for $125 total. they're both 1992's with double-butted True Temper. the CrossPoint is a 22" with full Deore LX (w/ XT shifters) and Wolber rims - there's a training tire on the rear wheel that I haven't replaced to match the front yet (they happen to be some brand new Michelin CycloCross Jets). the CrissCross is a 20" with SunTour XCT / XCM and looks to be all original. i'm hoping the CrossPoint size works for me cause i like the color better and it seems like it'd make for a fun gravel bike ... otherwise, i might have to swap components between them.

    Was walking by a table at the flea market, and spotted the unmistakeable shape of Freewheels. I get closer, and there are five in total. I snagged the best four of the bunch. They look to be near new takeoffs from a bike shop, that got squirreled away and forgotten. VERY low or no wear. Two Suntours, one is a no name, the other is a Perfect. The other two are identical Shimano 600 13/21's. All of them had mechanical problems immediately fixed by spraying them out, blowing the cleaner out with air, and re-lubed. Just gummed up from not freewheeling for a loooong time. All four combined, were ten bucks.




    Call me an idiot but I passed on a friction shift Univega Gran Rally for $60. It was missing the rear brake, because someone want to reduce weight or something. It also had this REALLY short curved handlebar. Rear wheel was an Ultegra 6600 possibly? Had a WIDE spacer behind the cassette. Front wheel was a newer aero style replacement wheel. The frame was decently clean. Some hipster found a bike and was started in on a fixie, and thankfully stopped short only removing the rear brake and changing the handlebars. The Full 600EX group was there, DT shifters and all. I came close enough to buying it, that I had my money ready. I had already asked the seller how much he wanted earlier. One of the mental notes that stopped me? The possibility of the proprietary DT shifter bosses. No square base. The lugs had cutouts, it was sky blue metallic, and it was beautiful. It didn't fit me, either. I wanted the group more than the bike itself. Why I passed on it? I don't know...,,,,BD

    If it's there next weekend, I will snag it. This was the frame it had....

    PedalInmetal, I just grabbed a slightly worse-for-wear CrissCross locally for $30. Same exact color, year, and size as yours, and all original. It was in a state of limited functionality, but I rode 'er around the block a few times, and it's a fun ride. I'm in the process of a full tear-down and rebuild. One word of caution, apparently the Suntour X-Press levers use a hard-to-find cable. I had already snipped mine before I realized this. Oops. Something to keep in mind before you start pulling any components. Happy riding!

    Hi, SpiritCyclist - welcome to the forums. That's a nice find for $30 ... enjoy. And thanks for the advice about the cable - I haven't messed with XPress shifters before, so let me know what else you find out. The CrissCross I have needs a good cleaning, some new grips, and probably some adjustments ... but hopefully not much else.

    Thanks! I've been perusing the forum for a while, gleaning lots of great information. I figured it was about time to jump in and get involved. And yeah, for $30, I'm psyched. It'll make a great commuter/tourer/blast-around-town bike.

    I spotted a dark photo posted to a local CL ad for a take-off road bar, with newish bar tape, aero brake levers, and 150mm long threadless stem, all for $25. The stem was goofy long and seller stated it wasn't part of the $25 price and wanted $40. I'm no NBA center, and passed on it. But when I arrived to pick up the rest, I happily saw a near brand new set of Shimano 2300 8 speed brifters on the bar! Oh yes!!
    I needed a shifter solution for my next project, and these were a gift from the N+1 Cycling Gods.

    If you team those brifters with some decent components from the time when 8 speed was king, you'd have a nice group!



    Knowing full well the old saying about chickens being counted before they are hatched, I am picking this up this weekend. The frame will get a FULL inspection before I drive away with it. I have plans for it to be a commuter type bike, with small slick tires, and Deore DX drivetrain. In other words, tearing down my Trek 830 find from a few months ago. From the condition the paint looks to be in, it may get a strip/polish treatment. I have the set of bars that just came off of the M1000, to get me started.,,,,BD

    That's a gorgeous bike, love the slung look of the bars. Of course, like with my 49cm Nobilette, they'll tell you it's too short for you to ride, but you've found in that bike the missing element that fixes a too-short frame, sling the bars down for a pista racer. Solves a good bit of the geometry problems. Thanks for that pic, it broadens my range of potential buys. About the LeJeune (U before E, capital J) how'd it ride? I've always wanted one because my family lived at Camp LeJeune, NC when my dad was in the Marine Corps.

    Thanks for the spelling correction. It's been a while. I really loved riding it (the Lejeune) during my younger days. Rode it from Brooklyn (East New York section) to work in Harlem 3 times a week. About 19 miles each way! Brake-less "steady kicker", as we referred to track bikes. Even took it as far as Bear Mountain upstate NY on more than one occasion. Rode it on the Kissena park velodrome in Queens NY early Sunday mornings when the track would be empty. It was chrome plated. cinelli track stem with the enamel painted medallion. Fiamme Tubular rims with Normandy high flange track hubs and clement sew ups. Sugino track crank. Cinelli 67 track bars. Etc. as you can no doubt tell, I really miss it.

    Picked up the Cannondale, driving 108 miles round trip. It was worth it though, for the frame alone, which will be the main part I keep. I already transplanted the rims from the Sante Fe in this picture. Originals were silver Ritchey Vantage on Exage hubs. I still haven't decided on bars yet. I might just drop the old bars and stem from the M1000 on it, but I have other mtb bars and stems to choose from. Maybe some ergo bars and bar ends. Still up in the air.,,,,BD

    The one good thing about black cork wrap is that it's better than nothing.

    Gifts...

    The rucksack is German, my friend gave it to me because my daughter said she liked it. The construction quality and hardware are outstanding.



    Wrights W3ST was new old stock, original price was $19.95 and the price sticker is still attached.... this is one of my favourite saddles and it will go on the Moulton.



    Vintage rim tools from the old CCM shop, used to straighten out rolled rims and the most serious tyre levers ever.

    There's no winner, loser, or competition for that matter, but it is sooooo hard to keep up with @wrk101! However, I happened to be 3 miles away from this seller at a venue, about 60 miles west of home. So why not? A PCS-10, used once, for 1/2 of new. This will complement my steel plate mounted shop stand and be my fair weather stand, if I don't get my Ultimate/Feedback head fixed.

    Scored this for the Clunker 100 Challenge, AUD10.

    And grabbed this wheel too (with Velocity rims), AUD20


    Also grabbed three old (date code EF) blue Shimano BMX hubs for a dollar each, probably try and sell them. Reckon they're worth anything?

    Also got some records for FREE; 2x the Alan Parsons Project LPs, and Billy Connolly(?).

    Sorry, but you are WAY ahead of me with the PX-10 find alone. Add those sweet Stumpjumpers, amazing!

    Non-catch of the day..... a '72 Paramount comes up on local CL.... my size, way in my price range, full campy prob GS, high flange hubs. Didn't get a lot of the details. Contacted the gentleman... he says, "i'll call ya and set something up." Never calls, emails me back to tell me it's sold. Dang. Heartbreak.

    First score of the year here................Park Tool Cotter Press $3

    I've been procrastinating the purchase of some supplies and I'm glad I waited.......went to an estate sale this morning and bought a ton of stuff that included about 5 rolls of black housing, a milk crate full of brake and gear cables, about 20 sets of Shimano top tube cable clamps, about a dozen 3 speed cable sets, 5 third hand brake tools, 2 spoke wrenches, chains, grips, brake pads, a parts cleaner, a few assorted wrenches, a Park work stand (older white one), about 100 black bar end plugs, about 15 freewheel tools.


    I went to the sale to buy a very old truing stand but it was priced at $250............tomorrow it'll be $125...........still more than I wanna pay.

    This was the estate sale in Lombard? I saw the truing stand. Was it missing some parts? I compared it with the one on Velobase, and it seemed like it was short of a full tool.

    How many Strawberry Shortcake bikes did you buy?
