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
if i'm being too solicitous or uncouth, i know you'll forgive me (or delete this).
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.
yep -- it's slim pickens!
