For €30 a Unis Mirage that nees a new rear wheel, levers and some cables. I'll probably flip it soon.


Or for €20 a Koga Miyata Gents Tour with Koga's Hardtlite FM-1 splined tubing and a needle bearing headset.

'86 Schwinn Super Sport - All original Shimano 600 - $40, at the flea market.
Disclaimer - It came with only the rear wheel, and was mounted on a Blackburn trainer -
A couple things (and a little work), were needed to get here
The saddle isn't final, just stuck on for the photo - It will have a Selle Lady Touriste, as it's going to be my wife's bike.
And my poor photo does not do it justice - The red is eye-popping bright.
