I would buy it just for the parts. I have a thing for AX. If you do pick it up would you sell me the brakes, stem, levers and bars for 100? Then you can keep sell the rest! aka profit!

I just thought parts of the bike were interesting...

And are the turkey wing levers for shifting gears?

Kinda the Edsel of bikes...

No, those are required-in-the-'80's suicide levers. The bike would have had stem-mounted shift levers, which obviously went to the same place as the front & rear derailleurs.

Didn't even notice the missing parts

Guess the brakes got my attention.

How about the weird head tube/top tube dimensions?

I fished one of these out of the dump a few years back; the brakes are plastic cladding over very low-end steel calipers.
