Just thought I would drop a note to let everyone know about our old bike swap this October 14. We have a great facility for this and would like to make this the fall companion meet to Dales' Cirque meet in the spring. Many people have mentioned not wanting to wait a whole year......here is your chance.

We will have an open house at the shop on Saturday evening with access to all our bikes and parts. For info on the swap see http://www.firstflightbikes.com/crossroa.htm

and for an idea of the parts we have for sale http://www.firstflightbikes.com/lightwei.htm

Thanks

> I have 2 old Paramount track racers for sale:

> threaded port for grease at the BB, has flaking chrome on the rear
> dropouts. IT HAS DAMAGE TO THE TOP TUBE AND THE DOWN TUBE FROM A
> FRONT-END CRASH . The frame looks fine otherwise, but the top tube and
> downtube will need to be replaced. There is a serial number stamped on
> the BB shell, but I can't read it. There is no serial number on the
> right rear dropout. $145 plus shipping (full return privilege if not

> 2) Old racer, perhaps from the late 30's, may have been repainted,
