All of my bikes are too nice to park at the local shops even if locked so i needed to find a cheap cool ride. I was lucky to pick up this bargain Nirve C1 this week from a seaside town. Fair bit of corrosion on the spokes and chain and in desperate need of a service. I cleaned and greased all the bearings and fitted a Schwinn steel stem. The previous owner drilled through the original alloy stem and fitted a bolt to stop the bars from turning. Also went through my parts bins and found a decent chain, front brake setup, shorty guards, headlight, wtp grips and the rack i pulled from my daughter’s Schwinn slik chick. Rides pretty sweet now. Just need to find my Krypto lock.

Thanks Mate. The Nirve looks a million bucks but owes me about $60 and a few bits i had off other bikes i’ve parted out. If it went missing i’d be piss’d off but i havent put much into it in dollars. Photos of my fleet attached. Vintage usa bikes are non existent downunder so i treasure them highly. The 51 Panther and 68 Typhoon were frames only bought off ebay, shipped here (expensive) and then built up with bits sourced mostly from the usa too. Red menace cook replica ex usa bought as frame/fork kit, shogun mtb i have had since 89 and now restored, the blue schwinn/roadmaster is a china frame and low budget
