    Picked up this '91 Trek 930 last weekend for $10. I went over it completely and didn't have to spend any more on it. I am not into mountain bikes so I just listed it on CL.

    How does a fork get a reverse bend like that? It's like the previous owner was involved in a front-end collision while traveling in reverse.

    Easy. Turn the fork backwards and pedel your ass off into a curb or parked car.

    Bought a present for my new Electra Amsterdam find of last weekend. Textured Brooks B.67. I rode about three miles on the old saddle, before I started going numb. This thing was comfy right out of the box. Thin enough not to get in the way of a full pedal stroke. If it will fit in the end of the handlebar, I will be upgrading to a 9 speed bar end shifter. The angle of the present mtb shifter makes shifting awkward at best. Cork grips with amber shellac and a set of Paselas will find their way onto this bike before too long. The ride of this bike is pretty plush, and it's light enough to not be too tiring for longer than average rides. I have about half it's original price in it including the saddle.,,,,BD

    Nice Electra Dude. On the shifters, I find that grip shifters work well on northroad bars.

    I was working on the side of the road in Westchester County, and I find a Continental Competition tubular tire! Closer inspection revealed a broken valve core. The base tape is in perfect shape with no glue (weird), perfect tread pattern with no measurable wear, and no rubber cracks or slices on the casing.

    SWEET!!

    So, 10 minutes this AM with a drill, tap, and a core from the parts bin and I am in business. Yay! I've got it mounted up on a rim and it looks like I really lucked out. It seems to me that someone had it as a spare to limp home, and they broke the core during inflation. Talk about bad luck for them but good luck for me.

    It seems like these things retail for anywhere between $60 and $100. Nice spare.

    I found this Schwinn Le Tour Lux thrown out with the trash. The RD hangar snapped off of the frame. The RD cage is bent pretty bad. Everything is original including tires. I will try mounting a Suntour Honor RD I have sitting in my parts bin to see if I can get it on the road again.

    Cleaned lubed and polished the bike. I found a Suntour GT RD long cage in the $5 bin at the LBS. I put an extra set of pedals I had on the bike and bought a new chain. The bike rides great. Will be listing it on CL tomorrow.

    Picked up this Carlton at a nearby LBS today. Bike is actually complete, but disassembled. Full Reynolds 531 with butted tubes, interesting lug work, wrap around stays. Most of the drive components are Campy. Williams cottered crankset. I am guessing early 1960s.

    Oh that is sweet, Thrifty Bill - That is one heckuva find for a BIKE STORE! The LBS's around here just stock ridiculously expensive modern bikes made in China. No C&V possibilities at all.

    Slight correction, sorry my posting was unclear. While I picked the bike up from the LBS, it was not in the garbage. Owner held it for me figuring I would be interested (I bought a 1979 Trek 936 from him last year). I am the local vintage bike nut around here. I paid him a small amount for it, so it wasn't free (but reasonable for sure). Paper sticking out the head tube is an original build sheet from Carlton. Most of the sheet is deteriorated, but it is still interesting.

    Added pic of non-drive side rear drop out serial number. J 1571

    No idea how it decodes.

    My favorite (and oldest- 1986) bike was found at my LBS (well, the frame)... someone had bought the bike for the wheelset and didn't want the frame. It was just hanging out at the LBS for a while until I finally asked about it.

    Here is a picture of my garbage find 1984 Schwinn Le tour Lux Touring bike all cleaned up and ready to sell. If I make it look any nicer I will just want to keep her. I should never pick up flip bikes in my size.

    I bought bike parts sans frameset to complete a Peugeot frame I had acquired last year. I messed up the frame, it was probably French threading so I bought a Puch Pacifica frameset on Ebay.
    i'm letting a friend ride her a bit, he might buy her at cost.
