Frame and fork arrived today from jeirvine. I couldn't wait so I used what I had, gran sport cranks and brakes will be switched later to super record. Waiting on my regal saddle, this one fits a lot better than my last one. Thanks again John.

Very happy that this bike found a good home.

Lotta work stripping the paint, but the chrome on those ProTours is second to none. Go for it, and make sure you post pics!

Two Panaracer MTB tires, a Dart II and a Smoke II, that I got very lightly used and in very good condition for about $15 each.

A box of bike parts, NOT, but mounts for a GoPro.
I do not own a GoPro. I do not want a GoPro.
Nor do I need 50 lbs of bike mounts for a GoPro.

They are OK, but not the best thing since sliced bread.
I prefer sliced bread. Or the Contour Roam on a side helmet mount.
Less dorky, but dorky enough.

The software, also sent, was 5 DVD's.
I run a 2002 Sony VAIO on WinXP.
Anything that takes 5 DVD's to load, well, it will go from PC to IED quickly.

I told myself I wasn't going to make anymore cycling related purchases this summer, but for $87 new and from a MN retailer I couldn't resist. I may post a report on how it feels and compares to my B17. A Selle Anatomica X.

My grail bike arrived in the post today. (photo by previous owner)

I currently have it stripped down for cleaning and lubing. The bike still had all original cables and Hunt Wilde bar tape.

Got a NR rear derailleur in the post today. Nothing special, however, I'm going to try a little local Pay It Forward and give it to another bikie here in Evanston who recently built up a vintage Basso with a Valentino rear derailleur. I figure even a crufty NR is better than a Valentino...

Kind of a crap shoot on these lots. I paid $26 including shipping for this lot, only good for spare parts:
