Brian,
>From what i see in the pictures this bike has nothing in common with the earlier Bauer bikes made until the 70ies. Just an ordinary Bauer labeled standard ten-speed from the late 70ies. As far as I know at that time the original Bauer factory did not exist anymore. The name was sold to some other manufacturer who just labelled gas-pipe frames Bauer. I had one of those as my first bike and although mine hade some nice parts and it was a deluxe version, the frame was chunk, stamped dropouts, cheaply brazed and water or gas pipes. Original Buers from the 50ies and 60ies have realy nice liúgs and chrome and are 531 througout. The bike might be worth the 75$ if it was in pristine condition but it does not look like that. As far as I know you get nicer bikes for daily use for that price. I just wonder who brought that kind of bike over....
