A Swift Grouppo ( mostly stock)
As a long time fan of the fold-able bike, namely my beloved R-20 which has been heavily modded AND has been put in a suitcase and brought around the world. I am now the owner of a new-used Swift! It was only used 3 months by a local fella.
I have always wanted one, the price was right, so now the transformation begins.
I plan on jettisoning ALL the components making it into a single speed, similar to my R-20. Although all the stuff this bike comes with looks pretty great, I will sell it, one piece at a time or maybe as a grouppo? If anyone needs anything I thought I would let this community know first. Just I have to figure out what it is all worth, any ideas?
There are two mods which came with the bike: fold-able metal pedals & upgraded 36 spoke wheels, 406.
Oh yeah, and I am keeping the R-20. Its a work of art, that thing.
