a friend of mine is looking for a fairly inexpencive touring bike around 400$ so i found a used bike @ 75$ in the basement of the bike shop that i work at. i hopethis bike will work, its an old 12 speed concord, that im hopeing all it needs is new tires cables and bar tape. but my Q? is weather or not its going to be a good bike for a 7 day 360 mile ride. i assume that back in the day this was a preety nice bike and may have even been used for such riding at one time in its life.
