I had no idea what it was...just didn't seem right to frankenbike it tho....Frame is in remarkable condition other than the rusted chrome. No dents, scrapes, bends.Seatpost and bb came right out. Chromed headset is rusted.. I would like to restore this but I'm up to my neck in rebuilds now (just got the Moto GT back from powder coating). Maybe a resto-mode later this year. Anyone interested in restoring this I'm in north FL (J'ville).








Thats the AD plum brown. Great color and match able with nail polish I found online.

Same color as the later AD SLE I have. Great frame and the paint polished really nicely (so donít give up on it.

Derust the fork as best you can, polish, wax and ride!

Good candidate for some SunTour Cyclone or early Superbe stuff, IMHO...

Absolutely worth saving and building up with you favorite parts.

I have, and my A-D Inter-10 is one of my all-time favorite bikes. It is probably the one I have made most miles on.

In Holland:



In Italy:



In France:



Hope this helps.

AD Inter10

Sorry for the belated posts. I put the I10 frame aside for awhile. Was needing to finish other projects. I've finished the Motobecane (GT), aquired a Takara 732 and an AD special Light. The Takara and SL were supposed to be just for parts but I ended up doing a resto-mod on the Takara. The SL has been stripped and parts are earmarked for the Inter10, which is now back from powder coating. \I'm attaching pix of the Takara ('55 732} and the Moto. (Pix of the I10 when I get the fork installed).
Thanks, DA

ps: The AD Super Light frame needs a home. Size 62ST/58TT. Small dent in tt, otherwise in good condition

AD Superlight

I picked this up off Craigslist last month for parts for my Inter10. I have no interest in rebuilding it...it is way too big for me (62st/58tt). Has a little surface rust, small dent in the toptube. I'd like to give it to someone wanting to do a rebuild. Any interest out there?
Thanks, DA

I think so, yes. Might get more interest.

And/or the pay it forward thread.
