    Friend who works for the city found this in a clean up. New wheels were built from the existing hubs, rust was cleaned and cleared, moving parts greased and she rides again!

    Remarkable. Very nice save.

    What is on the downtube in the first pic?

    That would be the battery pack for a very rotten Delta headlight system!
