Nothing special

I've had this frame since the late 70s when I found it in the dump in Harrisville NH. Originally I just punted through the woods on it. Stripped frame and re-painted in the mid 80s for use as a campus bike. It pretty much languished away for the next 20+ years until my old beater frame broke & I needed to replace it. I had to fashion a bracket for the rear brake so that it could accommodate a 700C wheel. It's a great commuter & beer-getter.
