Subject: [CR]FS: Cheap or free "project" frames

A few items, perfect for your upcoming summer "project" bike.

Cosmetically challenged but interesting frames:

53cm Italian frame and fork, most likely a Mirella. Built up by me in a number of ways while I was considering how to refinish, room for fenders, takes 700c wheels. Campy dropouts and cable guides. Nice lugs with cutouts. Needs paint, but straight and aligned. Has a small dent in one of the seat stays that doesn't affect the ride. Here are photos as a complete bike, but selling only the frame, fork, and "generic" alloy headset. $52.00 (or make offer) plus postage. There's a brand new Shimano sealed bottom bracket installed and if you want it, add 20.00 to the total. Photos: http://www.twistcomm.com/OldItalianFrame/index.html

Bridgestone Kabuki Superlight, 21". White "pearl" with original decals and headbadge. One of the ones with the cast lugs and seatpost with the internal bolt. Includes frame, fork, seatpost, headset and bottom bracket. Could make an interesting commuter or fixed gear. At least that's what I had in mind. $20.00 plus postage. (I have the original Bridgestone alloy cranks, too, if interested.) Photos: http://www.twistcomm.com/Kabuki/

Circa 1970's Nishiki Olympic 21". Lugged, steel with cable stops, headbadge and chrome fork ends. Includes frame, fork, headset and bottom bracket. Previous owner had drilled holes to mount a water bottle cage (!). Free to a good home. You pay shipping only. (Or pickup would be even better.) Photos: http://www.twistcomm.com/Nishiki/

Trades considered, also.

Thanks for looking.
