I picked up this Fastback 100 for $220 last weekend. You're probably looking at the picture and thinking it's good to go as is. The bike always looks good in the for sale picture. I was really excited to pick it up, because I was hoping it was going to be in way better condition that it actually is. I was only mildly disappointed that it wasn't mint when I picked it up. When I got home and looked it over and I was happy again. It has rust, but it's not that bad. I've already cleaned a bunch of parts. The brakes, crank, and sprocket came out nice. The sissy bar was is rough shape with large spots of chrome missing, and not to mention it was rusted in place. I tried all of the suggested tricks I could find online and finally settled with cutting the bar in half at the top so that I could twist out two separate pieces. The seat looks good from far, but it's far from good in my opinion. I'm hoping to learn to sew my own covers soon, but the nice thing about this bike is that it's essentially the same bike as the Raleigh Chopper MK1 and covers are available. Lots of other parts out there too, but they ain't cheap and neither is the shipping. My paypal balance already took a hit and I have some parts on the way. I'm really happy that the shifter and cover are in great shape. The plastic cover only needs new stickers which I have already ordered. The kickstand was missing when I got it too, so I found one on ebay and it's also on it's way. The only other issues that I seem to have are mismatched brake levers, which isn't a big deal, pedals are shot, and the chrome on the rims is a little worse off than my brain can deal with. Fenders cleaned up okay. They shine but there is pitting. Repros are expensive. I plan to paint this thing some shade of blue. I have a whack of 70's muscle bikes and so many of them have original orange paint. I'm sick of looking at orange. Spoke protector is pretty good. Hub seems okay? Not sure yet..... rims are a bit pitted under the rust. This showed up in the mail today and I think it might work it's way into this project.
