    I went to our annual police bike auction and came home with 11 bikes, I only paid $1, $2 & $5 for most of them ( think parts). Two of the $1 bikes have the Shimano warranty cranksets & one $1 bike had a pair of new high rise bars & Dia-Compe touring brake levers I wanted. Then there is the 2009 Raleigh One Way that I picked up for a good deal, it is in great shape and ready to ride ( but I will service it anyway ). Link to pics of my haul.

    Picked up a pretty nice 1981 Nishiki Olympic 12 today. Graphics are a little scuffed, but it's in pretty good shape. It has the Suntour AR group, Araya wheels and a pretty cool and functional Huret mileage counter w/band in place. I really like the Nishiki headbadges on these.

    Finally picked up that blue Super LeTour 12.2 frame last night. Paint overall is nice. Needs a few chips tepaired, but thankfully it's a fairly easy "duplicolor fix".,,,,BD

    I scored a nice pair of 36 spoke Alex DH19 wheels on Deore hubs with 700x28 Schwalbe Marathon Plus tires today. Price for the set was about the cost of one tire. I'm going to use these on my Nashbar touring bike.

    Nice police auction haul!

    Minor pickup at a thrift store, got a nice 700c front wheel with a good tire, plus a handful of bike tools. Total cost ~ what the tire is worth.

    I always like to pick up freewheel tools, you can never have enough of them. One is the typical two prong Suntour style, but unusual to me, its actually the old Suntour tool, not one of the newer knockoffs. The large FW tool is a puzzler. It has a typical external teeth on one end, and internal teeth on the other. No idea what it will fit.

    Another lesson in the "you got to ask" category. I was checking out at the register with just the wheel, so I ask: "Do you have any other bike stuff?" "Sure, I have these tools over here."........

    The large one looks like a Normandy/Maillard freewheel remover. The smaller silver one may fit into the internal splines of the large one, giving you a better grip with a wrench or socket.

    If you buy a bike at a police auction how do you prove ownership if someone claims it is theirs?

    Do they issue a receipt with the serial number on it?

    Even the cheap French bikes make nice riders. You might want to lower the stem on that UO-8 a little bit.

    yeah j,
    I love my French bikes. I have a Red, a Green, an Orange, and now a Purple Gitane! The stem on the Peugeot is snapped at the head nut.

    Here's the Super LeTour frame I picked up Tuesday evening. $70, and another $87 in bottom bracket, cables, hoods, etc. It sucks being a civilian now(non bike shop employee). One major cool thing came out of it though. I FINALLY found a frame to put my Arabesque group on, after it sat 3-4 years in a Skechers box. I think it fits the bike quite nicely! Not too low end, yet not overdoing it. Definitely pretty, and I have decided to leave the patina alone. Not going to touch up the scratches.,,,,BD

    That's a nice bike you found, and I too think the Arabesque (600) group would go good with that bike since the original components were not that great, the Altus was simply the Shimano 500 which had a poor reputation for shifting performance, but the Arabesque was a totally different animal and it looks really artistic, not to mention a bit lighter. Isn't that a 79 Super Le Tour II? The II series was about a pound or 2 lighter than the Super Le Tour of the same year.

    Anyway congrats on finding a nice bike.

    Actually the Altus shared a design with all other Shimano offerings, even the Crane derailleurs made before the 11.8-12.2 era. This is the first I have ever heard of a bad rep. for Altus shifting. It's kind of a moot point anyway, since the SLT came with a slightly earlier version of 600.

    My youngest outgrew her 24 inch wheeled mtb and I was looking for a 26 inch wheeled replacement and as luck would have it, a 16 inch framed Nishiki rigid ATB rolled into the co-op a few minutes before I arrived to drop off a parts donation.

    The measurements are just right for her and it will be a great trail bike.

    I will of course perform some daddy magic to improve a few things on it... the grip shifters have to go and I have some LX brifters and canti brakes that will fit up nicely and replace the Altus cantis (which are crap).

    I thought the 79 Super Le Tour II came with just the Altus derailleurs, is this not true?
