    Saw that one, drooled, sighed, and walked away.

    Glad someone from the community got it!
    This is a Pugs not some carbon wannabee pretzel wagon!!

    Interesting that this bike is serial 399 and mine is 587 and they look almost identical. Kent wasn't making bikes that fast!

    Nice bike! That was the one that got away from me. Still have his CL pix on my hard drive. Glad to know it has a good home.

    Love it. If you plan on purging the fenders, let me know.

    How about a half dozen close ups?
    Seek: Koski Trailmaster. Breezer Series 2, or 3. Fillet brazed Ibis Custom. Cunningham Racer. Otis Guy (but not that softride model). That's all I need I don't need anything else... except... except for an old Mountain Goat bar stem combo. And that's all I need. I don't need anything else. Except.....

    Best thing is it my size. My other Mountaineer is a 16/17, and fits my wife. Now we have a pair for the CO vintage ride. I can post more pics tomorrow, I ran out of daylight today.

    I will check in here tomorrow just to see. Great pickup. Will you ride it or hang it on the wall?

    Great grab! I wondered who picked that up. What's the # on yours tductape? I have a brown one from I think '82 but I've never looked at the serial on it, it would be interesting to see where it falls in line.

    sbsbiker has me wondering the same thing. I will have to take it down from where it's hanging above the fireplace and check it out when I get home.

    Under the BB shell, under the cables, poor stamping and heavy paint may cover.

    No cables, No numbers. Possibly Kent was using countries before numbers to mark each bike. All I got was an Italy!

    And not that I claim to be a good photographer at all, but one fuzzy picture of something pink off in the distance, does not count.

    What I see looks pretty cool.

    Raining here this afternoon, was out this morning riding my Moots Gristle on the last day of summer, so it was hard to get a good pic. All I see of your is a shot of its bum, how about a side shot? Get me some better pics and I'll take them down to Kent's shop and ask him directly.

    Do we need a Moots thread to catalog the works of Kent by #?
