Ha, he does get a good bike now and then, but most of his stuff is on the wacky side. He scraps for some of the bike shops in the area. His best bike was a Stowe that sat fir a while. Nothing gets proper rehab.

He should give away a free car stereo with all of his bikes. Or a Firenze ...

I wish it was the last year of top tubes that were way too long on that model, but no such luck.

Awesome. What size is the frame? It may actually fit my brother, who rides something like a 67.5cm frame.

That Paramount looks like a '92, and it's a smoking deal.

56cm Falcon, $150.

I'm not sure how badly people like falcons and if the price is exorbitant for a bike that obviously needs a comprehensive tuneup/possibly new parts. But I thought I'd put it up here regardless.

66 ctt, 65 ctc. They call it 65 ctc. I ride a 56 so I am not keeping it. But I will keep the parts.

I believe that's an SR copy of the good ol' TA cranks.

Nope, Sugino Super Maxy.
