OK, I acquired the chainless bike today. I got it for $300, but don't know if that's a good value price or not. Good price to me though.
Great mechanical conditon with no apparent wear in the gears and bushings.
Does have several coats of paint and a dent in the top tube. Anybody got ideas about fixing that dent? Forks are bent some but that should be an easy fix.
Need to find a period seat and grips.
Has dryrotted 28X1 3/8 Penn-Olimpic tires. Are those tires and tubes sizes still available?
I found the stamped numerals 6742 at the top of the seat tube. Anybody got a clue about them?
This thing is very light! 30.5 lbs. Never had any brakes. The pedals don't freewheel. You push down when the pedals are coming up to slow it.
I ain't gonna put a engine on it, but an old Villeres would sure look good in there.
Hmmm, mebbe just an antiqued solex clone for just a little while;~)
