That's the title of my craigslist ad. Pretty straight forward, right?

Today Don replied. He found these two hanging in the rafters of his garage, left by the previous owner of the home....17 years ago. He never touched them until this week when he needed a repair done.

The Schwinn is a '69, the Columbia a '71. Haven't even washed them.

Another response to the ad...I really like this mid 80's Diamond Back as it reminds me a lot of my first mountain bike, a 1986 Accent.

This Mongoose was also in with the deal, and may end up being the donor bike for my build-off project ( sparing the 3speed Columbia at least for a time)
