    Broken Takara

    The Takara is broken.

    I was cleaning it a few minutes ago, and noticed a space where I could see the BB. From the seatpost/BB shell, the lug is separating.

    Eh, it is nicely painted. I'll just hang it on the wall.

    Now it is time for the neon Schwinn Traveler.

    Could you have it fixed? Seems like you could get a lug replaced?

    Not really worth it. This frame is from the 70's and I got it for free at the bike shop

    RIP.


    My Takara bar bike is still going strong (and sitting in the yard covered in frost).

    That blows. At least those old Schwinns ride similar.
    Wanted: broken Titec 2 bolt seatpost, any size
