    What's up with this bike?

    looks like the cranks are on the wrong side... any thoughts?

    also, how easy would it be to make this back into a proper touring bike?

    Looks like the images were just "flipped" over (try to read the handlebars in the 4th image).

    The picture was taken with the aid of a mirror..... or they flipped the picture for some reason?

    Some software that comes with webcams shots in mirror mode by default.

    From a CL ad? I think I remember seeing these same photos for such an ad, but I don't remember where the listing was local to.
