Looking to purchase a single speed, have choice of three vintage steel frames, ideas?
I'm looking at purchasing a single speed bike. I have a choice of three same sized steel frames, all about early - mid eighties, all in pretty good condition. I will also note that the following are all about the same price (within 50 dollars of each other). Also, they are all the same 52t/16t.
1) Schwinn LeTour
2) Motobecane Nomade Sprint
3) C. Itoh ?
I'm familiar with the LeTour (as I have a voyageur from the same era), I've heard good things about the Motobecanes (apparently this was made in france), and I have no idea about C. Itoh?
This will be my first single, mainly for exercise and easy commuting around Chicago.
Thank you for the input!
