Just picked this up. Was looking for a beater I could do a Cruiser/BMX thing on, and found this. The Atom drum brake hub sealed the deal.

Cool score. This 1978 Spitfire 5 that I found at a yard sale is what actually led me to find RRB back in 2009 after the seller told me about the site.

Someone let the cat out of the bag around here... they'd pop up from time to time and I would think to myself...'I need to snag one of those at some point!'. Then covid happened, now when they show up it is more...'I sure wish I could afford to snag one of those someday!'. :doh:

Cool bike :thumbsup:

They are still out there cheap. I found that one on FB Marketplace for $125.
