Score! Very nice.

I have something similar that is either a Spaceliner or it could be a Cosmic Flyer. Thank you for posting these pictures. I've been thinking about building it up this summer, and now you've inspired me to do a little more research.

This one is the Cosmic Flyer. I think a really good cleaning and a few areas of de-rusting and she will be ready for the road. I will also add some new tires/tubes and maybe a bell! Won't be quite like my ti Lynskey but so what, it looks like a blast to ride. Wonder what a hill will be like ...ouch )
