    Good score! Not high end bikes but nice riders. I really like mine, I'm going to swap on a wider set of aluminum drop bars with new tape and aluminum pedals and then just ride it.

    The bottle had Velcro glued to it. I bought one back in '81, I hated it. One of my recent purchases had one on it with the original bottle, I gave it back to the seller.
