Norco rescued from the scrap heap Sat.

Nice Freebee find Sat. Worked 5 hours cleaning and repairing it today and it runs like a Deer.
Nice set of Araya wheels on it. 17" frame. 21 speeds. Seat is a little high as it just came off the bike stand.

I sure would like to know where this scrap heap is you are grabbing from! Ha. Looks like it has a decent crankset

if you are vigilant you will find a lot of free bikes and others for sale under $40. People know I recycle them and that helps. i have a lot of free time on my hands so I do a route once a week looking in various thrift stores and garbage dumps. it amazes me what people throw away.
