Not as rare as most of those on the thread, but I don't see many later Team Champions around; mostly the earlier orange Champion Teams. Mine's a 1979.

Sorry, I just sold my early 70's Plantenga 531 db framed sports/touring bike. I sure hated to see it go. We spent a lot of time and miles together over the years.

Hi Aaron,

Do your magic!

I have some riding buddies that would die for that bike.

They raced a tandem at the Chequamegon 100 last year.

Did well until they blew a axle/hub.

Downhill at 23 mph!

THe problem here is that it's at my parent's house and not very accessible. I've struck a deal with my brother in law where he's supposed to take the bike on long term loan and clean it up. I don't have space for it and it's not well suited to city streets.

I haven't gone through the whole thread, but I plan to. I haven't added my red crackly paint Fuji Tiara, but I will...as soon as I install the white RX100 crank I got for it.

But what I find the most interesting about the thread is that "Show us your unique bike that no one else has" has generated 97 replies, counting my own
