You know how Nashbar always has those $99 frames in the back of their mailer catelog? Well, they’ve had those back there for a looong time. Here’s an example from the days when they weren’t owned by Performance, they were called Bike Nashbar, there was still a Spike Nashbar! This is Phil H’s OTSG First late 80s Bike Nashbar Sport Rx.
Hi Cameron and everyone,
Here’s is my third submission to the list, a mid-80s Sport Rx by Bike Nashbar. Not a bad find, considering that I got it for free. The original owner told me that a local shop quoted her $250 to restore it, so she decided to give it away in favor of a new hybrid. Of course, it didn’t cost me anywhere near that much to fix it up. New tires and tubes, new cables, and two sets of brake pads, and some steel wool and TLC, and it’s ready to roll again. The 19″ frame is much too small for me, so it will be up for sale tomorrow — in fact, my boss is interested. Hmmm, is this a good career move? :-
Meanwhile, I hope you enjoy the variety of views.
