    I know where it is too! The setting for the classic documentary: High on Crack Street. But seriously, I grew up in MA and worked in Tewks for a few years.

    Go over to classic and vintage forums and you'll find plenty of people with vintage aluminum bikes that upgraded to modern 130mm wheels without having their frames explode.

    so they stole the fork, bars, shifters ....and front deraileur but left the cranks, rear deraileur and brake. Might as well strip the whole thing so they could sell the complete group!
