I bought this frame at a Goodwill for ten bucks. Came with risers and some heavy a** rims that weighed a ton. As you can see I took some pics of the work in progress. It was covered in orange clay dust but cleaned up really well. These were taken after cleaning and degreasing. There was some paint chipping but absolutely no rust. Look how well the group cleaned up. Wish I had some before pics. This was a great find. At this point it is completely stripped and ready for paint. I am going to stay with the original suntour group set. One mans trash is another mans treasure as they say.

I am looking to upgrade the 27"s on my Le Tour. I was curious what size tires and rims you have? Are the 700c?


How much does it weigh right now?

I'm not exactly sure. The frame is not really heavy though. Not as light as my other. The rims that came with it were ridiculously heavy. Looked like polished steel. They say UKARIM, the rear cassette says France model F3, the hubs say schwinn approved 06 80.
