So much fun! Note the carrying bar on the seat tube. Vintage Kirtland Tour Pak handlebar bag. Was my dad's bike in the 80s and had been in grandparents garage for 20+ years. Got the frame shipped to me with the crankset, stem and handlebars and built it up in the last couple of months.

Great Posting
