I just rescued this,no wheels but the rest complete
The brakes work,this is my first encounter
with shimano sora gears,the levers don't move but the cables do

Can anyone date it for me ?
What size / type of wheels do I need ?

Was gonna klunker it but looks like only thin wheels will do [/quote][/list]

and i would say 700c wheels

being a road bike i would not expect a triple crank set , 99 sounds fair enough, 700 x 19 or 23c wheels

i am sure others will add comments that either agree or not

the usa bronx double wall wheels came off a ladies falcon, and total investment around £15 for tyres and tubes

it has shimano sora gears,brakes and cranks

lovely bike to ride and eventually will end up with the original 18 speed wheels
