While everyone touts the "New!" or "Improved!" version of everything I find myself gravitating toward the older and proven which can be purchased for far, far less. This bike is a great example of that. Although it came out in the early 80's it has an excellent reputation and you will be the SECOND owner of a bike that was loved and meticulously maintained by the individual that babied it for 40 plus years. It's like that one owner car that is decades old but everyone will pay a premium for because it was obviously loved and babied or the owner wouldn't have kept it that long.

I purchased this bike from the son of the man who purchased it new, who is now deceased. I have personally thoroughly inspected it and took it for a ride and I can tell you that everything works as designed and everything is adjusted correctly. It is ready to go right now. If you're new to this brand look online and you will discover the "cultish" following that exists. This is a very original bike and I have attached photos of all components. Although the bike is vintage the tires are new. The wheels are straight, the gears shift quickly and smoothly, the brake pads are thick and not worn down, and though the original seat has minor damage on the front of the horn it is fully functional and comfortable. This is a very well preserved and smooth riding bike. If you want to be able to keep up with the pack yet stand out, and have a whole lot more money left in your pocket, come and see it. To purchase a bike that would be equivalent in every way would cost at least three times as much. The first one to ride it will buy it. Thanks for reading!
