Samford's 94 Cuda Comp

Postby mixalive » February 8th, 2011, 8:58 pm

I received the 94 Cuda Comp I won on Ebay. Fedex lost it for a couple of days in Victoria, TX, but it finally arrived. It is confirmed to be a 14" and has a serial number of AX3100027. It seems to be about 96% factory stock. On a scale of 1 to 10 with 7 as passing, I would give it a 7.9. It looks like it has been ridden pretty hard. One of the rims needs trued, all wheel bearings need attention, front tire is dry rotted, fork needs rebuilding and the frame is pretty much scuffed up all over. But, it is all there, the frame is straight, no cracks, and I am thrilled to have it. I still think it was worth what I paid for it. It will be an 8.5 by the time I am finished with it.
And, I got a bicycle shipping box to boot.. :mrgreen:

Here are some images after I cleaned it up.

There's something to be said about a bike that has some nicks and scuffs here and there. It's been loved.

Mark, you're forgetting that mix would rather have a Barracuda that's not been loved. :P

Hey Terry,

After you've hit the trails a few times with your Comp, how about a review comparing the ride quality of your A2M (double butted crmo) versus the Comp (Tange Ultimate).

Thanks,

-D-

*** I don't want to hijack Mix's thread, so if anyone else wants to weigh in on the ride quality between your Cudas, please start a new thread. Thanks! ***
