I started with a $50 Craigslist find. I liked the frame design, the patina and the head badge. Then I just cleaned up the frame a bit, overhauled all the bearings, polished some chrome pieces and the head badge, threw on a 7-speed internal gear wheel, adjustable gooseneck, straight bars, new grips, front brake, NOS seat and a few other things. It's a nice solid rider. I'm not too thrilled with the way the seat looks on the bike. I may look for a vintage road bike saddle to go along with its new "stripped-down" look. Other than that, I'm satisfied. My grandson will be riding this one when he comes to visit.
