Hello to All,
My name is John, live in Australia and i am new on here....new 2 this in general.
Being bored i thought i would revisit my youth and restore a bike so i purchased the 1st relic i saw on ebay last week for $30. The unidentified Mixte.
It came complete with a silver hand brush paint job, thus leaving no indication of brand/decal etc making this a mystery for me.
Component features (original ?) include -
alloy cranks - sq taper bottom bracket (japan bearing cups)
alloy weimann brake ass.
alloy wheels - front = command hub , rear = sachs orbit 2 speed hub with 6 cog cassette
sachs stem mounted shifters
The main identifying points are -
*Serial number stamped onto nicely crafted rear brake bridge plate which also mounts rear basket
*Left rear stay has keyed spoke / wheel lock welded to frame
*Brazed frame lugs
I have included some pics of the bike before and after, although the restoration isnt finished any comments or advice would be much appreciated.
I would like to thank you all in advance for your time in reading my post or for any help/advice you may have.
