Saved from the dump or maybe from a co-op. An abandoned mountain bike that I got permission to take as no one else was interested. I was originally just interested in the Dia Compe 908 canti brakes as I have two bikes running those now and springs do break on occasion. Then I noticed the Sugino GP130 crankset with rings that may prove useful as I age a bit here and there. And then the FW was practically an unused 14 to 32 Shimano (made in Japan). Fine with me. All cleaned up and overhauled now, awaiting the call of duty. Yup one chain ring bolt is missing - thrown away as it was rounded out and I barely got it off. I also kept the Tange BB then donated the rest of the parts and the f/f.

I put a card like this in the FWs that I stash so I'll know what the cog spread and range is whenever I'm looking for one. Sure glad I'm comfortable with opening, cleaning and relubing these classic FWs. I'm pretty partial to 6sp units.
