Haha, only on the cheap. This one a lot of the hardware was swapped out. I also did a Norco Avanti and kept everything original except the BB which is now a cheap shimano cartridge, even the bartape! It's going to be a beater bike. Am keeping my eyes peeled for more vintage steel, and hopefully a mixte in the future.

Thanks guys!
