I made arrangements to drive 100 miles to go get it this morning. When I got there, this had happened:

The previous owner just couldn't lay off of the yard art urge, and treated my original paint curved post elgin to a quickie spray bomb paint job, free of charge. You have to laugh.

Not the greatest finds, but hard to lay off a cheap source for bike parts.
Got this Columbia about a month ago. Already used the chain on another bike. Still have a sweet set of mini apes and chrome stem. The 52T sprocket and crank is on my BO17 bike.

Bought this today:
Schwinn Exerciser. Bars are a little weird but I've used them before. Plus both bikes have pedals with straight shafts. And when all of the good parts are gone, you can cut them up for your other bike projects.

The mega heavy duty seat post is going on my Spaceliner BO17 project.

65T sprocket and lots of chain.

I believe there is a super clean 28 hole 20" rim under that wheel cover.
