    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...

    the brakes

    the long chainstays

    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.

    You know it's going to be a good day when the stem and seatpost come right out.
