What's in the stand...

This sweet early '90s rasta/jelly bean Salsa came in originally to get the headset and bottom bracket installed and then have the WTB shift adapters positioned. It ended up as a complete build up. Turned out pretty nice too. I thought I took a few more photos, but alas, they don't appear in my camera or computer. While the owner was there, another gem of a bike rolled out of the barn from 1982 to get brought up to date - more later.

Nothing like wrenching on bikes like those!

Mike, that Salsa is stunning....Of course I'm a bit biased.

I've been looking for that frame for a while. I think that owner should sell that bike to me...Or trade me for a Fargo or something. ;)

I am a bit serious. I doubt the owner would ever want to sell it, but if he does....you know where to steer him.

Jason, that would be a "if she ever wants to sell it.

Yes, she is very happy with it and hopes to never ever sell it. I took it out on China Camp yesterday. Stunning ride!
