im not one who usually rides roadbikes, or bikes with gears for that matter, but i couldn't pass up on my first australian bike.

rides like a dream, just needs a bit of tlc, and some bar tape.

maybe someone could give me an idea on age, or any info at all.

It's all fun and games until somebody gets hurt. Then it's just fun.

yeah yeah... i know its low end, but i love it.

went for a ride tonight and love all 9187539785 kgs of this bike.

i assume its late 70s early 80's at least? cant find a reasonable way to date it via google.

thinking yellow cables, green tape, and red tires. lil' bit o' the rasta, eh mon?

im a tall mofo so it fits me well at 60cm.

and shimano date stamps its components. Look for two small capital letters on hubs and inside of cranks or derraileurs, A=1976 second letter A-L is month

I wouldn't change anything. It's in very nice original condition.
