I looked for a number last night in all the usual places and couldnt find anything. It still has the Art Dept. and Brodie Tubing "Escher" stickers, so it's original paint and the numbers shouldnt be covered up. As far as keeping it, it's way too big for me, so if I do build it up, it will sit in the garage as a conversation piece. I knew my buddy had it (his brother had 4 Brodies, one of which is hanging up in my hallway). I had no idea I was getting it till it was pulled out of the trunk of my buddy's car.


Well if you ever decide to sell it It looks to be a great fit for me and we are in the same country. My parents are from the hammer, but live east of TO now.

Took some better pics of the Brodie. Found the serial number on the bottom of the BB under some mung - # 1223. Size I got with my incredibly accurate Stanley measuring tape - 20" C- C (effective).

Very cool. I keep dreaming of having a "real" Brodie. Surprised its a 20 inch frame - that is one long steerer! Definitely needs a paintjob or powdercoating.

I've had one good Kijiji score, but also a lot of wasted time looking. Sucks being up in Peterborough sometimes.

Kijiji can be a minefield of retreads. It was a week and a half of back and forth emails, price fluctuations, and cancelled meets before my buddy finally got the bike I bought in his possession. That said, I've had a lot of good dealings on Kijiji with straight up people. Meet the next day, exchange $$$ for goods, nice meetin' ya. I have a couple of hot spots I concentrate on where people either don't realize what they have or know what they have, but just don't care. When I bought my home gym I went to the guy's hose. His living room was the same square footage as my house. The sun room off the living room was the same square footage as my house. He said he could ask more for it, but he just wanted someone to say they'd come get it, show up with a truck that day, and take it away ( he was building a 50'x40' bedroom in the basement for his son and it was in the way).

But the real question is are you going to sell that Brodie to one of us?
