This little beaut was slated for Friday, but you know how things go. I’m post-dating it just so we have a honest 5 this week. Monday’s actual post to come later today.
This is Ryan S’s 1970s Tiger 10-Speed, and another OTSG First!
Ryan S. here with my winter bike build from this fall.
Year 1970’s Make no idea Model Tiger
I was in the warehouse of my local bike “kitchen” wandering around and spotted this frame-set , the young wrench working their saw my interest and said “I am tired of looking at that thing its yours for 5 bucks” how could I say no? After I got it home and examined it I had to laugh; it was so dirty it appeared to have just been in a muddy cyclo cross race and it had lots of packing tape wrapped around the tubes (WTF?) some no name brand center pulls, dirt encrusted BB and what appeared to be a velvet saddle. I decided to build it up from the parts bin as a rough and tumble winter bike with Kenda K161 27X1 3/8 knobbied fatties, fenders and a splash of red for some color. I could find no references to the Tiger brand on the internets so I have no idea what model, year etc it might be but I do love the tiger head badge. it grrrrrrrreat! (sorry couldn’t resist. It ended up going to a nice university kid as a commuter.
