    Phil H., now that’s a headbadge! (nearly takes up the entire headtube)
    “A level up from department store stuff” describes it very well. Far from El Cheapo, but neither is it high-end. It’s been my experience that “those” kind of bikes oftentimes make for a very worthy and dependable ride. Irregardless, it cleaned up nicely and is back on the road again, nice!

      Thanks, BRQ. Flipped and sold just like that. On to my next project!

    Nothing wrong with Aerolite, Phil. Remember, it goes faster downhill. One of these days I’m gonna ride one of those featherweight carbon wonders to see what the big deal is, but until then, make mine steel.

    Cameron, I agree that this Venus thing was tough,but it is nothing compared to a transit of Uranus.

    As I just posted on the OTSG FB page, when I’m not riding, I’m stargazing. Some transit shots taken through one of my scopes: http://spaceweather.com/submissions/large_image_popup.php?image_name=Phil-Harrington-IMG_0628a-Large_1338986824.jpg :-)

    Phil nice clean up job – like the before and after shots of the FD and Crank – and I agree with BRQ that is a cool head-badge. Glad to hear it was a quick flip and someone is out there smiling and riding a cool rehabbed bike boom “10” speed.
