I needed something to get trough the winter and to carry stuff and kiddo so I bought a pristine px-8 from 1975...
the plan was to get rid of the rearcarrier (easyer with a kidseat) and install a porteur rack in the front, how ever, nice racks (like Velo Orange) are a bit on the pricey side so for now this will do...
Just snagged this World Sport off CL last night for $35. Needs tires and a chain, but overall the bike is in great shape. No rust on the frame, wheels are clean, and the chrome and aluminum should only need minimal polishing. First I will get it rideable in the current geared configuration, but I may convert it to a single speed in the future.
I've just built up two recently from the frames up. First may be one of my nicest vintage steel yet. A 73 Raleigh Competition. While not original I used parts that were pretty much all period correct. Campy, Cinelli, Mafac, Brooks Pro, etc. Even has brand new gumwall tubular tires.
I just built this up this past Saturday from all spare parts and not a single penny spent. The tires were in the process of being turned into black walls or the orignal gumwalls. I just ran out of sharpie. lol.
I've got this also. Tips in at 16 lbs. Ebay carbon frame with Campy Carbon Centaur Group.
Also have a Giant OCR1 that is my daily rider but still a decent bike. Just no pictures.
