I aquired this lovely violet Superior from a thrift store for the princely sum of $15, an urban barn find if ever there was one. It is technically a 15 speed with the triple plateau chainrings but it’s age and beauty call to the cognocenti in the congregation to forgive for it was born that way.
Astute OTSB observers will note the trauma around the head and top tube joint. Sadly this evanescent machine has suffered from mistreatment from the hoi polloi who owned it prior. Fear not it will never be altered from its original state except as funds accrue to allow proper frame repair and paint.
