Avert your eyes... here is a Waterford USA ladies touring bike that was clearly used as a commuter for a while. Somebody wrapped their chain around the top tube.
Just asked the seller what he was thinking the bike is worth. To me it looks like just the frame and a handful of parts are still salvegable but maybe not even that. At the very least it will need a ton of Oxalic Acid.

Hell! Buy it for everything ELSE, too! Wonderful bike (mid-1970s) all 531 despite the toasted Brooks: still worth the $$$ (and more) if it's your size.
I'd be torn between this and the Allegro...best to BUY THEM BOTH!

Those harsh winters outside... Its a shame its been so neglected. I can't even imagine how seized that Thompson seat post is with all the aluminum oxide thats built up in the seat tube.

Yeah I am afraid so. This looks like a total overhaul and can get expensive if you wanted to have the paint restored. And Waterford closed down in June so they wouldn't be available for parts probably. But they might be able to tell a bit more about the original parts and materials if asked.

I've actually been surprised by many steel bikes that had been stored outside and were rusty--so sure the post wouldn't budge, only to have it come right out. I think it's all about whether it was installed right in the first place.

That, I say, that was a joke, son (said in my best Foghorn Leghorn impression). My point was that if there was any doubt about the decision, those remarkable panniers should give you the bump you need.

That's a 531 frame, albeit using Technium construction. There was one like it at our old co-op but, alas, it was bent.

Man is that ever nice!

Can anyone guesstimate the size?

Could it be a 58? Or is that wishful thinking?
