Pair of sew-ups for $100

...and they came laced to an Olmo!

I first spotted this at a garage sale....4 years ago!

...Where I found the pre-Raleigh Carlton for $35.

Long story, but I got the call yesterday.
I'll pick up the original bars & cranks later today.

DEFINITELY worth the wait!
Heck, the tires, cable clamps & hubs are worth the price of admission!

I spoke to Dr.Deltron last evening. He is really excited about this Olmo (which I missed while I was away on vacation). He still doesn't have a computer so can't come around to visit all that often. But I'm certain he is over his funky mood about the fellow he mentions in the thread "Dr.Deltron no More."

That's good news Bob.

Thanks for the update on the good Dr.
