A2T back from the dead

Postby seattlecuda » March 14th, 2015, 12:40 pm

Howdy all,

I bought this bike in McCall Idaho new in 94 or 95. There was a soon to fail shop there and I think it was a last season hold over, I remember spending 1K on it. What a fortune at the time. Long story short, I rode the balls off it, moved to a Fisher Sugar 3 in 98 and left it laying in the corner to be forgotten forever.

Anyhoo, I cleaned it up and turned it into my grocery getter for now. As you can see it is pretty beat, but it still rides great.

Peace,
Chris

Hey the first step was pulling her out of the corner, second maybe fixing her up for a nostalgic ride from time to time....I see nothing wrong with that! Last time out with mine a guy from a group rode by on his modern AM bike, smiled and said I remember those, it is fun to pull out old school cool from time to time.

Glad to see you chime in on the forum as well, keep it up and please post some more pic's ...trail pic's or local hang out shots make all feel good to see.
Relax and have deep water thoughts.

The frame is far too nice to be a grocery getter ! ! !

It breaks my heart to see an uber race steel frame hauling tins of beans!
