Just picked up a *ahum* slightly rusty Koga-Miyata Gents Tour frame for €20. It has Koga's Hardtlite FM-1 tubing which should be comparable to Columbus SLX. Also comes with a Primax-e roller bearing headset.

A nice (mismatched) set of Bontrager wheels. Now to work on removing the stickers so the mismatched was is less obvious.

Thanks RobbieTunes.

Couple of days ago thanks to a certain C&V member, @jeirvine this...




then this morning, some ebay...




and finaly, just moments ago this afternoon, a little Facebook Marketplace...





Jokes on me! I knew there were parts packaged separately in the box with the rims, but when I opened the first of two apparent packages, it turned out to be filler! Plastic bags inside of a plastic bag. And cut zip ties! lol

The other package though, that one contained the goods...





And the wheels unwrapped...

Stainless steel Gazelle fenders for the Gazelle Super Licht:


A very cheap Unis Mirage bike with a missing rear wheel.


Seems like gaspipe tubing but I think I can flip it as a decent student bike. Sachs Huret derailleur and shifters.

Sturmey archer drum brake, dynamo hub for front of my gitane tandem. The rear drum was a mess so the drag brake will go in front.

90mm drum brake and almost free electricity. It does weigh about 3/4 of a ton.

My sister had a crafting party last week and was showing off how she turned one of my bikes into a christmas card holder and one of the girls was admiring my storage stand. Well I told how great it was and how cheap it seemed and said I would try and find the website. To my disappointment they seem to be out of production, and anything similar either leans on the wall or is approaching $200!! I stumbled across this Thule that I picked up off the bay for only $110!!!

This is actually in the dining room at my sister's house

My repaired Schwinn straightbar tank arrived today but the mail carrier got here 30 minutes before I awoke so I hope to retrieve it later on the bike it will go on.

Got good deal on the 1st gen C-Record pedals with Victory(?) straps. Huge road rash on the dust cap but works well and clean as it can be. Going on De Rosa SLX instead vtg Look pedals now.
