... it is missing the nuts to mount of the front wheel

Dunno, they say that, but you don't need nuts to slide in the front wheel and lean it against the sliding doors in the back of the pic. Wonder if that's someone's garage or a storage facility? I see a lot of low-priced bikes on CL clearly taken with an orange or silver U-Store-It type door behind it, sometimes in bulk, like the storage facility owner is selling off to recoup their expenses when someone walks out on their stuff. One of my step-uncles used to own one of those places and regularly had to do that on units.

Panasonic DX-2000 hand made classic
I rocked a 66cm DX-2000 for many years, and turned in a 6h10m 4400' climb century on one five years ago. It was a great riding lugged sport tourer with a chromed fork. It's a butted hi-ten -- it always rode (and weighed) nothing like most hi-ten labelled bikes. It's a sleeper and worth buying at a reasonable price (though I can't click on it, it is blocked at the school/work computer here) That crankset is cheap, but not heavy... this must have been a very good deal of a bike in 1981, I think they cut costs in the right places.

Another oddball Cannondale. 1990 SH600 2X2, with LX components. Very early off-roady hybrid, or 29er if you squint. The red stem is original.

I can't imagine the parent who'd actually take him up on the babysitting thing. I mean, unless making sure your kid needs a boatload of therapy down the road is a high priority.

I agree, I love the look they had on those as well as the Super Sports. I've been looking for either of those for a long time, but locally no luck. If someone lives in or near RI that's here on this forum they should run and not walk to get that bike, it's beautiful. It will be a tad heavy because it's the touring model, but the looks is just stunning and I guarantee it will get you compliments.

Chrome Gitane

Vintage Chrome Gitane Traveler Bicycle 27" Retro Road Bike

Seller says it's aluminum, but it must be steel. As cheap as I am, I'd be sorely tempted to spend the $125 on this if I lived in Missouri.

Check out the stem--you'd need to have arms like a gibbon to ride this thing. A very tall gibbon.

It has a new rear wheel. I got excited when I saw the CL add but the bike is too tall for me. Still looking for an 80's touring bike.
