This is a rough ride

This is how I got this bike, it has since eaten some steroids and now is an 18 speed (2x9).

I've been meaning to post pics of this for a minute. For those that know, this is a historic bike from a strange era in bicycle racing. Shimano helped develop these, but they never caught on. I will post more about this bike later, but thought people might enjoy it's wackiness.
