Currently pick this up in SF for probably too much money. SN M5D4A09
I have parts I am looking for at the very bottom. PM me if you have them or know where to look?
Started the tear down today. Picked it up on Friday.
It has a nice groupset, Suntour blue. But, the cassette is a 5 speed, I would like a 6. I think the wheel is from a Schwinn. It has a schwinn reflector. It also does not match, front being a Rigida (correct) and the rear being a Weinmann (incorrect). Someone got a trade?
This is good, someone rattlecanned near the bike giving a nice coat of overspray. It took me longer with a clay bar to get rid of the overspray than it did to take the bike apart. Does anyone know how to remove the surface rust caused by the groupset clamps?
Removing the bottom bracket, is there a sealed bearing style replacement? This would be nice, I rather dislike packing bearings. 1.37x24T, 68mm??
Another shot of the cassette.
Does anyone have a new water bottle holder, or one not missing the top plastic piece shown above?
Looking for a new rear Rigida rear wheel, or used. Maybe someone can guide me to a 27x1.25 wheelset with sealed bearings? Something that will work on this bike?
