Looks like a great find!

I had a Takara BMX bike in the early 80's, and it was nearly indestructible. Since it was my beloved childhood bike (think ET bike chase scene), I have a soft spot for Takara.

I should also have said that where I live for some reason everyone sees Takaras as really good touring bikes.

Don't know why that is but last year at the C&V shows in Brantford, both February and June, there were Takaras and people jumped on them and so when I saw the original ad I thought winter ride - fix up - easy flip. But then the rabbit hole beckoned and next thing I knew.....
