Last year, I scored some really nice bikes at thrift stores. But this year, that source has all but dried up. I was just about out of inventory, so I needed to find something.
Well, I found four bikes, OK, three were mountain bikes, but they were priced right, and decent or better quality.
I found a Nishiki Pueblo, my best deal on the mountain bikes. It needs very little.
I found a MOTIV Stonegrinder, it needs a little more TLC, but it is pretty good shape as well.
The third one was a Specialized Hardrock GX frameset. I pulled it out of the weeds at a sale, so it was really cheap. I have a pile of MTB components, so I should be able to complete it without much spending.
The fourth bike was my only road bike find, the pick of the day for me. It is a 1987 Cannondale ST600. I need to find some drop bars to put it back to original, plus some Sh 600DT shifters and brake levers. Everything else is there, and it looks pretty solid. It might just be a keeper.
I also picked up a fair amount of bike parts: a set of Sh 600 hubs, a Suntour Alpha 4500 RD, a Suntour GPX brake caliper, a "SPIN" rear wheel, one Sh 600 brake lever (I just need one more), and a nice Tange cromoly chrome fork (brand new, never cut).
