I found an interesting frame on Craigslist the other weekend – a mid 80s, Lotus Elite, size 60cm (my size). As I learned, this is the entry level Lotus but for the price I paid, I’m not worried about it. It will be a good, fast around town beater and if it doesn’t fit right, I think it will sell quickly.
Hsin Lung handlebar – what a mark of quality 😉
VERY grimy but no dings and no real rust. My plan is new saddle, new brake hoods, new cables, new brake pads, new chain, new bar tape. I don’t have any 27″ wheels so this project has been shelved until I can procure a set.
Are you digging that Park PRS-20 workstand? I’ll do a review of it later.
