Near the end of the last day of a 3 day garage sale I spotted an early '60s Condor with Gran Sport Campi derailleurs and shifters. Clearly not a high end frame, but very nice looking and apparently all original. Pencil thin seat stays, and the lower end of the fork blades are the thinnest I've ever seen. Pumpkin orange with a royal purple panel on the seat tube.

The woman running the sale says. "You can have that for hauling it away. Nobody wants it because of the funny tires (tubulars) and that hard seat (Brooks B15)"
