Newbie from North Carolina

New to the road biking scene. Been VERY active riding my cheap Mongoose mountain bike for the past month, having a blast and found what I think to be a great deal today...a Fuji Espree and a Fuji Allegro, less than $50 in both, both function fine and ready for restoration.

Sorry about the picture, cell phone, more tomorrow when the cleanup begins.

Day number 2, she's a lot cleaner, adjusted and works like a champ. Time for new tires, these are probably the originals...then new bar tape. Brakes have been completely disassembled, cleaned and correctly re-installed. Gearing adjusted as it was out of adjustment badly. Not bad for what I believe to be a 27-28 year old bike.

Hello mynewnchome. Great luck in finding two great vintage bikes for that kind of money.
A question, what size are the wheels on the Espree and the Allegro?
