A friend gave me some NOS Fisher FatTraxx tires, and I used that as an excuse to drag my wife's old bike down from the rafters and re-assemble it.

She bought this new in 1982, and about ten years later I upgraded the fork and bars to SwitchBlade and Salsa, and upgraded the Mafac brakes to Dia-Compe.

Drive train is original including TA cranks. Wheels are Suzue bolt-on hubs with Araya 26 x 1.75 rims, built by Wheelsmith.

CK - you're finally getting the hand of this retro thing ain't ya?!

Your next stop should be to bring that bike to race in our Sports Casuals Team and a copy of Klunkers to premiere at the Mountain Mayhem 24 hour race in June - they have a full sized screen on which they play movies all night for all the spectators... (last year we had 'The Goonies'...!)

Nah, but I post at MORC, the MTBR vintage, classic, and retro forum, and here and you've posted at all three in the past few weeks. I have the same SN for each forum. Plus, I really dig the history on your site and the contributions you've made to the sport. :D
