Now, out for a ride to start breaking in the saddle.

The XO series are really nice bikes. I have a 93 XO-2 that was purchased new and is still my everyday riding bike. I have ridden other 'cross' bikes and have always felt that Bridgestone (well Grant P.) got it right with these bikes. For rides over 40 miles or so the mustache bars are less comfortable then drops, but for around town and slightly shorter rides gives a very controlled and lively feel.

Nice catch. Are you really the dad of the Shifty of sore saddle cyclist fame?

You're still just as welcome, but there's a fellow who posts a lot in some of the other forums who uses the name "Shifty". He's a good guy too, and has some un-new bikes also.

Picked up a 2 year old Schwinn Super Sport in great shave, save for a rear tire/tube/rim strip that had been 'stapled' together with a nasty little nail. Paid $60.00 for it, replaced the rear tire/tube/rim strip for another $20.00 and sold it to a friend for $135.00. It has 24 speed indexed Shimano (with the pod shifters not the nasty grip shift) and an aluminum frame.

Bridgestone Princess

Well, I'm new but let me jump in.... just got this girl over the weekend, can't find much info on her, but paid $50 for her at a garage sale and except for the dry rot on her tires (which are beautiful with red crosses on the whitewalls), she's in wonderful shape, the chrome is real strong, and the little details, the tiny red markers on the hub ends, the little spoke lock with built in key, the extra bulb in the generator light, clearly, she was top of line at once and has been garaged for the whole time since then. Even the shifter is running smooth as buttah. I don't know much, any of you have any idea of age?

Pure semi-educated guess, but I think it looks like it's from the 60's.

Most likely was involved in a front end accident. Don't shed much of a tear over it.

Found at flea market locally 2 weeks ago for $45 just when I was looking for a nice triple-equipped bike to take on local hills (after being wasted by a couple hills on ride back to town on the old Raleigh Supercourse). The stars were aligned!! Still trying to determine model, but probably a 710 series Trek.

what's the serial number?
www.vintage-trek.com has a list of serial numbers that will ID the model and when it was brazed.

Any luck on the chain "guard" on the chain stay. Mine had the model on there, very faint though. Only place
on the whole bike with the number.,,,,BD

Legnano Super Sport for under $5 !

Just picked up a Legnano Super Sport with Campagnolo gear all over it for a grand total of $4.27. Nice patina... anyone have any clue on the year/decade or do the layers of dirt, grime and rust help identify it? No tubing stickers, spokes and chain are shot with rust. I thought it was worth the investment for the Universal 61 brakes and the Campy straight QR levers, downtube shifters, hubs (medium flange?) and ? front and Gran Sport rear derailleurs. I think I made out OK! More about it when I find the time!

The rust on one of the quick releases alone is worth what you paid. In fact, yours was more of a "steal" than a "catch".

An Oxalic acid solution will handle most of that rust. It's a weak acid & works slowly. Just be sure to rinse/neutralize it & then wax everything afterwards. Don

Geez, I hope you at least gave the seller a five and told him to keep the change! What a find. I am guessing late '60's because of the Gran Sport RD. Remove a locknut from the front wheel and check the date stamp on it. That is how I've dated some of my older bikes. Let us know.

Thanks Retyred. But they only wanted $3.98 for it and I paid tax on top of that! I guess I could send you the .73 cents and still feel good about the whole thing. I'll check out the date code on the locknut when I get the chance...
