Well....here I go again! This is the story of a bike lost and a bike found...and a little in between!
Sunday - Found a Craigslist ad for a RM Stratos....Hey for $200 its not something that you would come across so I decide to take a look.
Monday - Go and take a look. Owner tells me he's had the bike for 6 months and likes switching bikes. Has had ads in Craigslist before and should've known that this was kinda fishy. Fork over $160. Take it home and find that it has blown Mag 21 forks, hockey tape on the brake levers (15 years worth), and hasn't been cleaned in 10 years! The good is that it has all the original componentry except for the tires. Also find a Ti handlebar! SCORE!!
Monday night.....I let Retro_roy know of my find and notifies me that the same bike was listed on Craigslist the previous friday for $60! Here is his pic....
The only reason why he didn't pick it up because scumbag seller/buyer beat him to it on Friday!
Thursday - Picked up a Tange Super big fork for the project $10! SCORE!!!
Monday - Sanded, primed, and painted the fork! Already fitted with a Syncros stem, more updates to come!
Only a handful of bikes!!!
