[QUIOTE=OldsCOOL;17575629]Ahhh, another C&V lover. Can you post a pic of your Moto?[/QUOTE] I bought it off a guy at work. He said he got it from orig. owner in 1979. I dunno, maybe newer ? Grand Touring , Rigida wheels , 10 speed.

When I got it, he had put a big old walmart gel seat on it, had the shifters moved up to the stem, (didn't have orig. ) and had the handlebar stem up so high it was almost falling out !

I got the brooks , found the closest correct shifters I could find and moved back to original location. They are Suntour 'power shift' , not sure what year thoese were made, but work well. And dropped the bars back in a bit. Rides well. After riding the Raleigh Sports for awhile, I feel like im on a rocket when I get on this I had a early 80s Super Mirrage that I bought new , but sold it like a dummy for next to nuttin' a few years back. Was glad to get this bike, even the same color

That Moto was gorgeous.

My go to bike, Surly lht 2008 frame wasn't built until late 2012 I was tickled to get a new frame in that color

Surly steam roller picked up off of craigslist it is a 2008 to but had saw little use. Tenkara rod strapped to the top tube , I was fishing the little creek that runs along the local trail

Yeah, I've posted it before but I just have to say that the first ride of the spring is like being 10yrs old and having a new bike.

Yesterday I conquered the 1.5mi Cat 4 a few blocks away. Didnt expect to do it but there it was.

My CRITter rocked....

Thanks. I am kinda fond of the red also. I have got some goals and I think this bike will get me there. It is a different animal than the mountain bike I have been riding.
