    That is a 1995 Hoo Koo E Koo! I have one exactly like that one sitting in my garage right now, needing some repair. I ultimately decided to buy new when I got back into the sport earlier this year. Been thinking about resurrecting the ole Hoo Koo E Koo though, it was a great bike...

    My ride of choice on flatlands. It hauls, its tight and "I like to ride rigid!":D

    I like it. Wish I could've found something like that for that price. I had to new because the stuff that was out there was crap and way over priced.

    JK. I purchased this bike from my local sports authority (ready to get flamed):madman:. It was advertised for 399 on sale (orig. 649). I used the 20% off coupon and it came out to 319. then i added the 3 year warranty/bike tune-ups for 60. so i basically paid 400 and some change.

    here she is...my commute to work! :thumbsup:

    Bought this Bike for $170 at Craigslist then transferred my old wheels and brakes on to it. Used some elbow grease to clean it, now my girlfriend has a new bike :)

    '84 Schwinn Sierra - Bought it for $50 from a friend, stripped it down - repainted it matte black and converting it to a single speed as a commuter bike.

    I'll post pics up soon when it's done!

    Just picked up a 2005 Trek Fuel 70 for $175. Looks to be in very good condition and was upgraded with hydraulic brakes. I wasn't looking for it but I couldn't pass it up for my son.Attachment 701790

    Nice find, the cost of brakes was probably around your purchase price. :)

    Only picture I have now. Excuse the mess...I just moved.

    Trek 4500, dart 3, avid bb7 disc brakes, deore front and rear dérailleur. $400 but I am going to have to change the bottom bracket since it must have a bad bearing.
