I call it charity case because my buddy started me off with a rusty frame that was sitting in his back yard. paint and finding parts... I broke off the rusty acorn nuts so i welded on socket head M8 screws to the truss bars only thing i bought new was the seat... I love the Brooks B67, although after i bought it i came across several other seats ive been collecting for my next bikes. Funny how that worked out. Let me know what you think! Its part jc higgins, part schwinn... & i'm not sure of the frame???
