Finished my latest project today.
#1
this is a Apollo Kuwahara Aries. not sure what year. mabe the 80's. Paid $30 for it and it was a mess.
I tore it down and greased  the bottom bracket, wheel bearings, headset. put in a new stem and handle bars I swapped from a bike before I sold it. replaced or serviced all the cables. new chain as well. plus a new used front derailleur and lots of elboe grease. I will test drive it on my ride tomorrow. nice 24" frame. needs new tires if  i decide to keep it and sell my Trek 830. more pics to follow.

Elmore, please tell use what the frame is made of.  There is often a sticker along the seat tube.  I like it Smile

lugged Cro-Mo - definitely a keeper.  I'd be happy to take it off your hands Smile

Definitely a step up from a Trek 830.  Only the one year of 850 with lugs and 531 double butted tubing would be more desirable.
