The seller wants 8 bills for it, which seems like a lot given the condition. Add another 800-1K on restoration and its a pretty expensive bicycle.

The Conti's I have are really narrow. I wouldnt want to put a pair of wider tires on them. I did see a set of NOS Continental Supersports on eBay that were 700x18c. Would those work?
