This late nineties Rocky Mountain Cardiac was given to a friend, rather than toss it at the dump (just an educated guess). My friend, who collects much older roadsters and antiques, gave the bike to me (he did not want any money, from me, for the bike) and I will give a donation to B4H (my friend is a volunteer). PS - long have I longed for a Rocky Mountain...




When I was at my friend's house, this morning, doing an inventory of his bikes, that he has decided to find new homes for, I noticed the Rocky Mountain. Anyway.,,

He has quite a few that he wants to let go, to make room for more, and some are pretty nice. He and three other suppliers of vintage bicycles, in the Thunder Bay area, will contribute to a bulk sale of bikes (100 or more in a single sale). These are some of the bikes that will be included in the bulk sale. Wish I had room for that old Hiawatha hanging from the rafters. Some other pretty decent old roadsters in there, also, not to mention an antique or two and some lesser ten speeds and even a Raleigh Twenty folder, in great shape will head out the door...

Overall, that SS looks to be in great shape. Original saddle? Very nice if so!

Threat of rain shut down a bunch of sales at a local citywide event. I drove through early on my way to do some yard work nearby and got ran off...lousy earlybird, lol. Drove back through on my way home and was surprised to see bikes still in a yard.
Got the final discount price.

I try and salvage everything donated to our charity bike shop. Not all can be saved but we run a high percentage. All bike salvaged are donated via one of the charities we work for. If you can't fix it.....send it to me and we'll do our magic. Thanks

My catch of the day was a mid-to-late 80s Nashbar Toure XC. Made in Japan with Tange #2 and loaded with 18spd Suntour XC components and 700c wheels. Cost was $50 as-is.

Thanks shoota, but this is a keeper. I've had some great finds over the years but this wall art had me grinning all the way back to my car. Even my oldest son who has put many miles on Nike running shoes thought it was pretty cool. Cheers, Kevin

This is a nice catch; just the right combination of versatility, cool components, vintage appeal. I'd like to find one of these for 50 bucks.

I consider this a good catch.
A fine gentleman at the local bike thrift store told me a price I wasn't going to argue about, on this fine rather early Campagnolo Record front derailleur. Thank you kind sir!

I needed an early front derailleur, and it's going to be perfect for my Flea Market Mystery Bike-Info Needed.

Very nice, and very difficult to source to put it mildy. It took me forever to find one to replace the damaged unit on my '63 Paramount - It wasn't cheap either...

Thank you. I already solved the doubt. I have an equal seatpost, which was given to me. It seems to be a Profile Design.

Sure, I used Mother's brand cleaner wax but I imagine any light rubbing compound would work.
Didn't completely get rid of the yellowing but definitely looks better.

Brilliant! Tx, doesn't hurt that Schwinn decals, like most of their stuff was more robust and tougher than not.
