    Nice score fender1! That Schwinn High Sierra is awesome with the dual roller cams and slingshot stem. Also that drum brake wheelset is begging for an old cruiser frame to come along.

    Girlfriend's parents are landlords and gave me the heads up about some abandoned bikes in an apartment. I got out with a Ross cruiser and an '87 Schwinn World (that fits her perfectly). The girlfriend also happened to be looking for a bike and we wanted something cheap to get her started on. I tried to help her make it suit her needs best so the big honkin seat and kick stand stayed. This was basically my first project bike, but I just cleaned her up, put a cool matching bottle cage on, replaced tires/tubes, cables/housing, took off the decaying handlebar foam and put on some tape, removed the dork disk and adjust the derailleur so that the chain didn't fall off between where the dork disk once was. She loves it so it all worked out well:



    Was going to use some leftover parts to make the cruiser rideable...was wondering if anyone had any idea where to get an angle bracket for a front fender?

    OK, so there really should've been before and after photos of this one. But alas, in my haste, I tore the bike apart before thinking to snap any shots for posterity. I found this 1985 Trek 470 out at the curb. Looked like it hadn't been touched in 15 years. She got a complete disassembly and overhaul. The rear wheel was jacked, but I scored a new-old-stock wheelset at a swapmeet - Mavic 501 hubs laced to Open 4 CD SUP rims. Spin like butter, and the 126mm OLN matches the frame. Besides that, standard stuff - touched up the paint with nail polish and gave it a good waxing, new cables, bartape, chain, tires, etc. Full Shimano 600EX group throughout. Took her out for the inaugural ride today, and man, what a whip! I LOVE the feel of an old steel frame roadbike! Still getting used to the DT/friction setup, but by about 10 miles I had it pretty dialed in. The frame is the perfect size for me, too. I couldn't be happier.

    And oh yeah, gratuitous "selfie" shot for good measure.

    Congratulations on your find, and my compliments on a great job bringing it back from the brink. It looks fantastic.

    Snagged the Diamondback Apex a few months ago as a bare frame... built it up this morning with parts I picked up at the co-op and a good number of bits I had gathering dust.

    It is some serious fun... I banged around on it all day.

    mine is not nearly as cool as 65er.. love that diamondback , looks brand new..

    i pulled a wrecked motobecane jubilee sport out of the scrap bin... looks like it had been in a nasty wreck , the back wheel was tacoed and the downtube and toptube were both creased..BUT... the entire Suntour Blueline group was intact.. plus the SR fluted seatpost and the selle royal seat were savageable. i stripped the frame, im going to build up my Schwinn Super Letour 12.2 with the front wheel and the brakes, and the blue line will go on my gransport

    I had a pretty serious itch that needed scratching... pondered using an NOS Marzocchi for about 12 seconds before I realized that fat and rigid was the way to go.

    With the Blizzard hard tail, Moulden XC (rigid), and DBR it is quite the trifecta... and the DBR frame was in really beautiful shape.

    Nice catch on the Moto if only for all the parts... this is how bikes like my DBR got built and I put that all together with very little out of pocket expense... $40.00 for the crank, $10.00 for the tyres, some fresh Kool Stops, and cables and housings came to about $70.00 and the rest came from the tickle trunk.

    Picked the 85 trek 660 up for $20. Had to do a little work to it. Plan on doing a cheap build to just get it ridable. Way to many projects in front of it.

    I wasn't going to post pics of this '89 Technium PRE, but after I cleaned it, she was too pretty not to post. Snagged it for $50 and it looks like it was ridden a few times and put up. Not a scratch on the paint.

    I had it for sale, but no one was interested. It was either the price, or people are afraid of the damage that was repaired. I never claimed to be a professional. just cheap. I will probably just keep it. I have the 1985 600 series wrapped up. It will look nice next to my 670.

    DOH! That is my bike!

    Seriously, I have that exact bike in that paint scheme. I am so jealous that you scored that one! It's a great bike.

    Nice collection of Trek bikes. I have a 84 660 which looks identical to the one you have except the rear stays terminate at the seat tube/top tube junction on mine with what they call spoons with Trek engraved on the ends, yours appear to terminate with what appears to be a fastback design that was lugged? Anyway they look the same with the same paint color and decals...except your paint and decals are in far better shape than mine, 19 years of hot southern California sun did a number on it.

    Another great CL find. Wheel set in NOS condition for $50. Campagnolo Omega Strada Hardox. The seller said he purchased the set and hung them up 15 years ago. I think it was longer than that! Found a sold ebay listing for a pair of the rims that sold for $200! Chorus hubs for freewheel 32 hole, 126 rear. The hubs do not have "Chorus" under the shield. Haven't inspected the date code yet. Note the rim is a V rim and according to the sold add, is rare. Any comment about the rarity?

    This was a set with 3x rear and radial up front. Tubular rims of course, but never used.
