This belonged to my first ex-wife before I met her; it's been haunting the rafters of my garage for 25 years. It was sanded down and painted before I saw it and I rattle-canned it again around 1981. I don't know what brand it is. I took it to the big Lemonwheel concert in Limestone Maine in '98, figured it'd be no big deal if I lost it. It is heavy and looks like crap, but all the moving parts are lubed and adjusted and it rolls along quite nicely. I know the rack isn't level; that seems to bother some people.

Note tops of seat stays are bullet shaped, not flattened out. Maybe a clue to where the frame was made? I haven't seen that on any other bikes yet.

magnan, or some knuckle scraping subhuman made ;>)
