OK, so not exactly 'new...' Not really anywhere close to 'new.' A 199? (I am guessing 91 or so) Steve Bauer Caurus. It was probably around $300 or so at Canadian Tire, which makes this one of the finest crappy bikes they were selling at the time.
This is the semi-finished version... I cut those old grips off ... 'cut' is not really accurate as they were basically gelatinous and I more 'wiped' them off. I replaced them by triple-wrapping black cotton tape finished off with twine.
The front tire is a 26X1.95 Nokian Hakka-somethingorother that I was gifted a few years ago. The rear tire is a 1.75" wide Kenda that was on the front wheel when I got the bike. THe fenders have a wide square profile and a cool marble look because the silver paint is peeling off the inside.
The only thing that needed replacing were the crank and bottom bracket - the ones that came on it were buggered. And the saddle is a nightmare but I don't have a clamp for a standard saddle so that will have to wait.
I am off now for its maiden voyage and to take the dog for a run. Wish me luck!
