    Five Dollars?! I was in our LBS/Motorsports Emporium yesterday. Zero used bikes for sale. Not one road bike in the entire building. Lots of fake Harleys and those four wheel dive go cart things and all manner of camo clothing. But no drop bars and certainly no five dollar Peugots.

    Roadie Ryan does it again!

      Thanks TPC, you have to start visiting the thrift-stores, garage sales, flea markets, and bike “kitchens” man that’s where you find the old 10 speeds. Looks like the sunshine state has two http://communitycycles.org/links/bike-collectives.html perhaps you need to start Tim Joes bike Kitchen in your neck of the woods.

      TPC, I feel your pain brother! I come across nice bikes like almost daily, but I have to pass ’em up—A. due to space B. due to the Little Lady, but if you ever need/want a specific bike, let me know. Also, the vast amount of USA that separates us might be a problem…..meet me halfway?

      Hey Thomas

      I am a pretty average 5 foot 11 inches and could only kinda ride this 25 inch frame but the kid I sold it too was a good 6 foot 3 or 4 and it was a good fit for him.

    Wow, a bike…and a nice restored/resurrected one at that!!!
    Ryan, that sure is a whole-lotta bike for a 5 spot. I realize that it was $5 and some blood, sweat and tears but it looks to be in really nice condition. The paint job is amazingly clean with all decals and headbadge still intact. It’s been quite some time since I have found a little gem like that–I’m beginning to get that itch again, thanks to you.
    Nice job, BRQ

      Scratch it brother, lots of 10 speeds out there needing some BRQ love

    ….I thought fantasy bicycling was finding a NOS 70’s-80’s Euro-Asian-American crmo-lugged vintage marvel with a high-end grouping and a very expensive saddle at the thrift store for chump change and a smile….my bad.
