    My Fleetwing is the exact same, I think it's kind of a neat aesthetic. The bottom of the seat stays on my Fleetwing are also riveted to the dropout plate rather than crimped/welded on.

    70's coaster brake single speed lightweight for $100. Not sure how long it will take to get sold. He won't deal with text or Messager only phone calls.
    Unfortunately, his number has been blocked out![​IMG]

    I saw a bike on my local CL that had a high price and 'frame material: Titanium' designation on it. It was pretty apparent that the bike wasn't Ti, but the model name was Titanium. It was, at best, an $50 low end steel mid-80s mountain bike.

    I suspect something similar for the above.

    So you're saying I went by the bank and pulled 600 out for no good reason?

    Its worrisome how often I hear those two treated as synonyms. Probably more worrisome to Austrians and Australians o_O.

    The real kicker is in the ad they have a close up shot of the head badge plainly stating "Made in Austria." LOL
