    I have one lucky friend

    My friend's riding buddy was dumping some grass clipping in the dumpster yesterday and he found 2 bicycles.
    One is a Super Mirage Motobecane that they think was built in 1976, and the other is a Schwinn Super LeTour that they think was built in 1977. The Moto has made in France handpainted on the frame and the Schwinn says Made in Chicago on the tag. I think Schwinn only made those about 2 years in Chicago.

    Great find!

    BTW, he said the Schwinn rides great--he's a mountain bike rider. The Moto has a bad crank.
