Ive been a avid searcher of craigslist for 3 years searching for a old bike to restore/ride. I was originally looking to build a fixie or ss. Well today was my day. I found this little gem and it was only listed 10 mins when i found it. I got it for 50.00 bucks. I thought it was a good price. It has all shimano 600 componets. A quick question, im not going tear this apart do to the shape its in to make a fixie.i want to restore it into a nice rider. I could not ride it today because i dont have a adaptor for presta valves. These rims will not hold my 300 lb frame, should i throw deep v on there? Can i use the rear cogs for the deep v? Will my front skewer go to the new front rim or will have it have new quick releases? The bike looks hardly ridden..anyone know what year it is? Any other suggestions?
