    Puch Brigadier 100th Anniversary Edition

    Hey everyone! I recently purchased a road bike. It was up for sale for $500 with an extra $80 for shipping, but I was able to get the seller to give it to me for $225, putting the total cost at $305. I'm still waiting for it to come in and I wanted to hear some feedback on it if possible. I only have off-handed experience in riding a road bike, and this is my first time actually owning one myself. I'm going to convert it to single-speed upon getting it, as well as apply some new Cinelli white cork tape to the bars.

    Here are some pictures:

    It's a decent, solid, "old school" bike. You did not get scammed, but I certainly would not have paid any more than that. Get your gear ready, then hit the road when it shows up !

    Tip: Ask about pricing BEFORE you buy.

    No scam there, but kind of a spendy conversion project. Seems like much of the value is in the vintage/original feel.
