Subject: [CR]Phoenix Swap Meet

It was hot by 10 o'clock, but this year's meet was bigger than the one last year.

I picked up a tandem, repainted, men's front, mixte back, with no identifying marks. Maybe someone can help me identify it. It has suntour dropouts, the cranks say pro dynamic with Sugino bolts. Suntour rear derailleur. Mafac levers, competion front. The frame has braze ons for a rear center pull (it has a Mafac racer) and also a disc brake. The rear wheel is Weinmann concave laced to a Shimano hub that has a disc brake threaded on the left side of the hub. Weinmann concave front on a Normandy hub. Flamme bars with Suntour bar ends. Any ideas? I have a young son and we'll just use this as a beater.

A small Butler sat at $200. A mystery frame left in seconds with campy parts for $100. a repainted Hoff with campy parts went for $125.

For the record, Ken was quite proud of his new panties.
