    Haven’t picked up any complete Bikes in a few weeks. Found two this weekend.

    Ladies 60s Hawthorne-
    A6CD6476-7DDD-4120-9905-2134FC01E4A6.jpeg

    And a late 80s early 90s Huffy good vibrations-
    9E8138DB-2F92-4D35-9E8A-A4E2F9A31658.jpeg

    They’ll both be flipped. But I’m going to grab some bits first. I got the Hawthorne for the fenders, and the Huffy for the og snake belly tires. Possibly the shimano tourney derailleur.

    Bonus pic of the view while I typed this-

    Grabbed this 80s Schwinn voyageur today.
    1A8B0C0F-E8A9-4A15-9B22-537A6EB3A025.jpeg
    Pretty awesome 4130 chrome frame and fork.
    But I really got it for the crank and pedals-
    E7CABF49-2CD1-4170-B12E-6CE9FC43FCAA.jpeg
    Super maxy crank with some kkt pedals.
    Bonus, sunshine front hub.

    Yesterday was a good day. Two tone blue ‘57 deluxe hornet frame from @willswares1220 was on the door step when I got home.
    Made a trip shortly there after to get the ‘60 jaguar.
    Tange fork, fluted 13/16 seatpost, arayas laced to Suzue hubs...

    Stoked. Both frame have great original paint!

    Sold before Christmas one like yours for more than 300$. Was all original, a little nicer than yours.
    Yours should be a'81 maybe. I see the Shimano Altus rear derailleur and shifter. The Super Maxyz there too.
    I don't remember what breaks and wheels should have.
    Nice find, you should keep it.

    I sold the frame, fork, headset, seatpost, and bb.
    The brake were Dia Compe. The wheels were mis matched. Fromt was araya to a sunshine hub, not sure on the rear but a Normandy hub. I still have the wheels and shifters/brakes.

    Was a really nice bike. Lots of potential. But, I’m good on road bikes right now. I scored a Nishiki and cannondale I didn’t add in here that are really nice too. Already sold the Nishiki. Deciding what to do with the cannondale

    I dig the homemade orange vest/ reflective piece under the seat. I think i’ll Modify that and hang it under my saddle when I tour this summer.

    Grabbed this guy for the wheels. Bendix ‘70 rear and wald front hubs. Better suited for my spaceliner then what’s on it now.

    Thanks guys. I'm hoping I do the Kona justice. I've got most of the parts I want for how I want to build it. But I know it will be one I'll keep upgrading/ adding too for a bit.
    I intend on keeping it mostly late 90s bits.
