Wow, those pedals look new! Usually the dust cap is missing and the side of the cage is all scratched up. In that condition those would go for big $ on eBay.

Nice Breezer, DorkDisk. Any closeups of that Bonty fork? I believe these were made by Tange (essentially Switchblade copies).

Sounds like a great candidate for a conversion. Put a short stem on it (50-80mm), with an upward angle to get the bars as high as possible. Add in a long seatpost and you're golden. If the stock post...

3speedslow Love it.

I'm sure that stem would appreciate a trip to the hardware store and $1.50 spent on some stainless bolts to replace the rusty ones!

What kinda shape is the fork in?

Nice Ross. Very nice. Love those tires on it.

Can't stand the saddle though. I'd be going for a Brooks on a mid 80s MTB but to each their own!

Thanks! The chainstay wrap is just Newbaum's cotton bar tape in orange. All the orange parts were relatively easy to find. I'm a bike mechanic so I see parts all day.
