A local cycle place gave me $50 for the cadaver (I stripped off all usable parts and hardware)

They got a great deal!

Contact the guy I listed above and see what kind of deal he'll make you, he has 3 of those bikes in stock.

Yeah but it was necessary. As much trouble as the bike was I used it nearly every day for 10 years and it grew on me so I knew that if it stayed around for any length of time I was going to get notions of rebuilding it (something I used to do for a living), I have the tools, time and money but it's not a can of worms I want to open with so many other projects around the house staring at me.

Completely agree. Mines been parked in my garage for months untouched. Instead I've learned how to connect MDPE to mains and solder gas 22mm gas joints  :'(

I have been hard at work trying to find reasons not to work on my turbo bike. I cut down a huge tree because it ate my main sewer line and then of course had to replace the sewer line. ..then built a retaining wall. ..planted a hedge where the tree was. ..laid turf. ..concreted a patch of useless land. Cleaned and re-sealed the driveway. ..built an arbour. ..planted a pair of grapevines beside the arbour. ..knocked down an old bbq that was just a huge spider's nest in drag. ..still going and not even close to running out of excuses. Garage needs a good clean.
