Yes, but I was 55 mins in and 150 visits later. I'd say the first reply would've gotten it.

Being paranoid by nature, if it sounds too good to be... it probably is. :| And thanks to Hergest, I now realise that LeMonds are long in the TT. Which is why I sold mine on; I'm the wrong body/legs combo.
Odd that someone just gives something like that away, really.
Well, no, it's not a pushbike, otherwise I'd be pushing it...

It would clean up into a great pub-bike or ride-to-work bike with little effort.

A steal at $25.00, I reckon. :)
I don't care if it's a $20 Huffy or a $20k Colnago, as long as you're riding, and you're happy.

What the heck is this? Some sort of tourer with that serious fork trail and centerpulls. Never seen headtube lugs like it.

Looks like one of those low end pugs to me, those pressed and stamped pump pegs are a giveaway.

Very nice!

Shame I already have 3 (81,83 and 84, none this clean), my shed is too full for another.
