Specialized Expedition Frameset - 62cm - You pick it up, you pay $0

I've long had visions of restoring this bike to its former glory but sadly, I just do not seeing it happening under my watch. Needs to go to a new home. Plenty of rust that probably should be dealt with although I rode it a lot of miles in this condition. Seat post moves but stem is stuck. It comes with what's in the picture. I can include the Dia Compe cantilever brakes as well.

Price: You come get it, you pay nothing. Location is Northampton, MA 01060
Year: Pretty sure it's 1983
Size: Seat tube is 62cm ctc, I measure top tube at 60cm ctc
Rear: 126mm

That's a heck of a deal. And you get to visit western MA, how cool is that? I'm glad it's not my size or I'd be tempted to chuck the job in and go on a long road trip.

This frame is the right size for me and I have the equipment to deal with the stem. PM'd.
