Someone should start a thread on C&V bike purchases that were not impulse buys.

at that price, you are well under budget (so far) to enter this in the clunker challenge!

I think I could plausibly claim that the Stella wasn't an impulse buy, considering the number of times I gazed admiringly at it in the Atelier before you sold it to me. Except for that, yeah, all impulse buys.

Sold my collector car

Well I guess a bike hobby is less money than a car hobby. I recently sold my 1987, 924s. I dont have the knowledge or 💰 money to do myself. I guess it will be a good bike to ad to my affordable collection 😀

What would you do on the fix -up, stay original, change stuff, ? The wheels look rough.. , but a lot looks like it can be cleaned up.
