    Got this beautiful little 1974 SuperCourse MkII from it's original owner a couple days ago, it's been hanging in the garage for years and appears to be 100% original, should clean up beautifully.





    The saddle even survived in amazing condition.

    I guess this can be considered a dump save, owners were going to trash it but decided to put it up on CL for $10 bucks, bent fork(repairable) and who can complain for 10 bucks and was just 10 miles away from my place.

    1990ish Schwinn Voyageur in tiny size.

    Catch of the day

    I'm not into road bikes, but I had to grab this one. Sat on CL for a while, no pics and vague listing. I got the seller to email me some pics and we finally got together. Bike is a 1985 as far as I can tell Serial Number N5G5722. Came with the panniers, rack and front bag. Needs tires and a general cleaning, but I'm happy for $50. I'll probably keep the rack and bags and sell this one, as it's a bit small for me.

    My catch of the day happened last week and is already posted elsewhere but I enjoy sharing pics so.... To some it was a good price but still a lot of money. I couldn't quite get over the fact that it is the top of the line with nearly a complete group and decent tires. The paint is not pristine but hey, its Italian!

    For those interested in touring bikes, that is a fantastic catch! The bar-ends alone were worth it!

    This guy came to me via the local coop. It seem to predate the convention where sturmey stamps the manufacture year on the shell of the hub. Not sure what I'll do with it, but I'll think of something.

    Notice the sweet kickstand.





    I also have have come into possession of this bruiser:

    I really do like the Raleigh, especially the shifter. That cruiser is a brute. It would make me want to be a paperboy in Springfield, (some state) USA.

    SWEET green Super Course! I am drooling! that green, and Raleigh Coffee brown are two of my favorite bike colors. It's funny I keep going older on my road bikes. At one point I had MANY more 80's bikes, as in a majority. I am slowly drifting towards all mid sixties to mid seventies road bikes. It was the time of massive improvement in components. The dawn of "high end", IMHO. I do like 80's mtb's though, as they had their own evolution jumps.,,,,BD

    That is a bit of a collectors item... and a very nice bike.

    Thank you.
    It's a size M but it actually fits.
    Guess I won't be doing a Thrifty Bill drop conversion on a mtb after all.

    1995 Marin Muirwoods - trash day find. My wife called me after dropping our daughter at school and was running errands and said there was a bike on the curb with trash and should she wait for me to come so nobody else could get it.. well, yes! I was unsure of what was waiting for me... but I think it was a good find.

    The frame and components had a lot of mold build up, but no rust. Took it down to the frame, cleaned it and polished it. Then all new grease, new cables and other bits.

    Here are the before and after shots:

    Cool- and you might be able to score a new crank if that's one of the recalled Shimano Alivios (details: CPSC, Shimano Announce Recall of Bicycle Components | CPSC.gov )

    That GT is a WINNER! Nice catch. I like everything about that bike!

    Stopped at the nearby Habitat for Humanity store. They had a shopping cart full of misc bike parts, I grabbed a lot of it. Nice Campy seat post, two Thudbuster seat posts, four saddles, a set of quill pedals, two handlebars. One handlebar came with RSX STI, pretty beat up but excellent hoods (OOP size, and its the size I use on most of my bikes). Sometimes in looking for bikes, you find parts instead. One of my theories is convert that pile of parts (or other find) to $$, and use that cash to boost the bike fund. Then its OK to pay full market for your next bike. Great solution to the old:"I sure wish I had the money to buy this deal".

    A few people seem to not like Marins much, I love them I have a Palisades Trail for the same year and a Pine mountain frame. these are a very versatile bike that should take up to about 26 x 2.2, they make super touring bikes too. A great find considering the price
    Where are the Bikeaholic meetings? . . . . . I need help!? I just don't think I can do this alone.

    Behold the humble bicycle . . .the oldest form of mechanical transport for the individual person.
    It will be the last too.

    Re-Cycle that Bicycle. Fix it, Ride it, Give it away.

    Picked up a set of Avid BB7 road calipers,,,,, finally! My drop bar 29 will get finished after a year sitting with the 9 speed Tiagra levers, cross levers, and wrap done. I was bummed about the cost of new calipers, and these must have popped up thirty seconds before I checked the CL bikes page. I am pumped to finally have them.,,,,BD

    It is a vintage Dahon 4 (Mariner)... I plan to lighten it up a little and improve on a few of the parts but it is minty.
