Here a bike I paid $45 for and recycled for years more use.
Has a chromoly frame and chromoly front forks. From the early 80's I believe[Image: IMG_00002527_zpsesctj1om.jpg~original][Image: IMG_00002523_zps9c5ehqcz.jpg~original].

Nice, you should be able to get a couple hundred out of that.

Thanks PK. As a bonus I kept a pair of chromoly pedals that were on it with serviceable bearings. i just couldn't part with them.

Not nit picking Elmore, I noticed on your bikes that you do not have crank caps. you can buy generic caps in bulk fairly cheap. I also buy stainless water bottle bolts in bulk too. button head mostly and polish them on the wheel.

 Yes that is a good point PK. it would dress it up a bit. I'm going by a bike store Wed and will drop in to see if they have them. I notice on your bikes you do a lot of little things to spruce them up like colored chain ring fasteners and other fasteners  etc. I should start some of that when I get better product to work on. I was able to sell 2 bikes Sat and one today which jumps starts my energy a little bit.
