With the recent purchase of a Ted Williams Sport Special (!), something has to give. Your gain is my loss, yada, yada. In any event, Bottom Feeders Unanimous (BFU), Northern Virginia Chapter, will bring the following delectables from our mushroom-growing area to Cirque:

AustroDaimler frame, 21" (53.5 cm) c-t, Bocama lugs and Shimano drop-outs, no fork, very light, all threading intact, and totally covered with medium green paint with sags and wrinkles (you should see the cranks). $21.50 at Cirque.

Gitane Mixte, in lovely blue, with tourist bars, Mafac plastic levers, etc. All Huret, All the time. Seems to be totally original (including rough tires) (except for the plastic spoke protector), probably from 1970s. The bike your Mom thought your Dad would get her. Almost no scratches even, washed up nicely. $75.

Viscount/Lambert frame and death fork, fatally damaged bb threads, no parts to speak of. best described as a nice $20 conversation piece. Will take less to keep from bringing it back.
