Thanks everyone.

Like I said, I have no idea if I'll end up putting it out there. I understand I can pull things back from it to maximize the return. For now, it'll do what I intended for it to...

Bridgestone RB-T

Sort of felt the need to just pick it up given how nice they ride. Met the seller and got it at a good price. It'll need some work to...

Picked this up today for well under his ask. Frame will clean up nicely. Not a desirable group for this bike to say the least.

This makes Super Prestige #2...

I've been riding more than I normally would this time of year in MN given the great weather. I really like the way the tires ride. Haven't had any issues with flats with a winter's worth of debris on...

It cleaned up very well.

If you want to see something cringe worthy, look closely at the second picture of the finished bike on the drive side fork leg. Yep, the original owner carved his MN...

The seller seems like a nice enough guy. Older guy who knew what he had, just didn't have a feel for the value currently. With some work and much better pictures, I'd bet that bike could bring...

I'm not too worked up about it. Win some, lose some. It's clearly worth more than $400 and I was willing to pay it. However, there's a few vintage bikes I'd be willing to pay over a grand for. A Gios...

Grady's Serotta frameset is stunning in person if you can't tell by the pic. Little overkill for my needs but an awesome base for a build none the less.

If I'm out on a ride where the only stopping I plan on doing is at the occasion traffic sign/signal, I use a bike with Look Keo Max pedals.

If I'm on a ride, likely...
