I purchased this bicycle for usd from the original owner. All the equipment was as purchased. A great "barn find". Not sure if the saddle is the one installed during assembly but it works and looks great since recovering. The paint and decals are original. Everything was disassembled, inspected, cleaned/polished and reassembled. A friend say it and bought it the day it was completed! He rides it very regularly. I will be posting the "before" photo soon. Any additional info about this bike will be appreciated. Thank you.
