    seattle: can't find a vintage winter project

    i've been having a really hard time finding my next vintage project restore/rebuild. there's been nothing available on seattle's craigslist lately. a winter of discontent.

    anybody out there have a bead on a 56-58cm '70s or '80s road bike that needs a major rebuild? if so, pm or email me. i usually look for the following:

    - straight frame, butted/db steel
    - matching fork
    - nothing stuck
    - cotterless crank
    - on-frame derailleur hanger
    - dt shifters
    - alloy rims
    - cheap!

    if i'm being too solicitous or uncouth, i know you'll forgive me (or delete this).

    cheers, all.
    happer: keep watching the sky, macintyre.

    Yeah, I've been feeling the same way. Been on the lookout for a donor bike with some aluminum rims, but there's nothing under $100. Sorry I can't help with your quest, though.
