Good afternoon everyone! Get on your local Craigslist, kijiji, pink bike, etc. and find the oldest aluminum bike you can... Or aluminium, whatever that is

This aluminum Fuji, apparently stored in a swamp with the bars about as backwards as you could possibly manage.

Note, I have absolutely no way to verify the correctness of the title of the craigslist ad or even guess at a year

1983 Cannondale. If I keep looking, maybe I can find something older.

I've got a few mid-80's Cannondales and a Technium 460. The oldest Klein I see has RSX brifters. No Alans.

That is awesome. I had to laugh at the swamp picture. The Fuji is steel as well, but hey who cares as long as a you have a nice swamp in the background.
