I have a friend that who is mentally disabled, that builds bikes to sell much as he can, and he will call me alot of times to buy stuff from him, for instance I got this one from him 79 Spitfire 5 speed drum brake

But anyways back to my thoughts He called me yesterday about an old bike he has for $25 I ask him to describe it ,he says its like a really old roadbike with a curved top tube and big fat wheels and the sprocket has big spaces between the teeth :shock: attention is peaked, So I will check this out today, wish me luck!!
