Hah, my sister used to have one just like that when we were younger. Despite the crank arms being ridiculously short to begin with, pedal strike would still happen when making sharp turns...

I think one of these would be popular during one of the centuries this summer.

That's funny, I thought it was expensive, but you're right, it is cheaper!

I wonder if they have a carbon one with a compact crank?

Cool, but I don't have clothing of that era. Reminds me of Pleasant Ville (movie).

I just remembered that my family had one of these when I was a kid. I was too young/short to ride it at the time. Still remember it having some thick, clear plastic coat over a golden embedded-metal-looking seat.

Do you plan to restore it first or will you be using it more as a beater?
