>I recently bought an old bike at a garage sale. I have search a variety of online engines and cannot find a single reference. Now don't laugh! It's "Ross" Grand Prix. Looks like 70 somethin" by the condition and equipment. It is a 10 speed and has SunTour all around, cottered crank, simple lugged frame, blah, blah, blah. It is meant to be my toolin' around town bike, so it is no big deal.<

Kevin, I think this was from around '74. My brother-in-law bought one new with his first paycheck out of high school. It is HUGE, largest frame I've ever seen, and very well-made. It's been on metric centuries, Skyline Drive rides, and currently rail trails and beach rides, sporting 700x41C's, but mostly everything else is original equipment. Good choice for toolin' around, it's highly unlikely you'll either wear out or destroy this one!
