Description:  bike was sold to me in '01 by a Houston guy that had to sell soon or there wouldn't be any bike left to sell, because of the pollution eating the bike. It cost me $50 to buy and $400 to make it ridable. I modified it to take a modern 8/9 speed rear wheel (stock was 5speed freewheel) and replaced the triple front with a double. I had to make my own front wheel to fit (Alex R390 rim in 13*451 laced to a Campy Veloce 32H hub) and moved the rear brake handle from the frame to the handlebars.

2006 update: I changed over to a 9 speed 11-34 cassette, and a 48-34-24 triple front in anticipation of doing some loaded touring, and also changed to some 1984 vintage chopper bars after breaking the original loop bars.

2008 update- Repairs underway after explosion in drivetrain bent the frame, changed front wheel to 700c size so I won't have to carry more than one size tube on trips and can get new tubes on pay rides from SAG.
