My daughter has decided that while she still likes the Centurion loop frame bike I built up for her she wants something sleeker, lighter and looks like a real bike (her words, something with a top tube.
She's 15 and 5'-1 maybe 2 and pretty much done growing vertically. Thus, i've been on the look out for a really small lightweight frame for a little while. Last night this popped up on the local CL.
(picture from ad)
So I swooped in and picked it up a few hours ago, probably not the greatest deal, but I was finding small size and light is a hard combination to meet.
Very little information to be found with google so i'm turning to you fine folks. I will get more pics later but here are a few of the specs I gleened from the bike.
Exage 400EX Derailers, indexed rear.
Diacompe 5000 brakes (recessed nut)
Sugino VP130 cranks (170), Double up front, 6 sp freewheel in back, didn't count the teeth.
Finish in very good condition very few nicks or scratches.
As for the frame, 47cm, pretty much the size I was looking for, and since my daughter likes birds she will be happy with the little sticker with a bird at the top of the seat tube
Serial # on the BB 70268462 > Found a little info, this should put this at 1987 I believe...
If anybody has any information they could fill in I would appreciate it.
