You see I've got a brother in law who likes to ride but he's on a X-Marter. I figure with the Holidays coming up I could get him on a decently light 700C bike, esp. since I've got alot of stuff in my garage. This is gonna be a singlespeed FW roadie with wide cyclo-cross type tires.

What I've got: Fuji Valite frame/fork, stem, bars, pedals, levers, post, saddle, wheels, tires and tubes. Also I
i know
I've got a Shimano 600 long reach brakeset but can only find the front at the moment.

What I need: A old and to be honest cheap Asian crankset, Sugino, SR and etc, and an English thread BB for same. In addition I might need a standard reach rear brake. Things like the headset and BMX fw I'll buy new.

I'll pay but to be honest not much. I don't want Campy anything just older Japanese stuff from 70s-80s. I've got some stuff to trade. A handful of old Shimano/SunTour derailleurs, a few miscellaneous brakes, a set of Japanese Campy clone quill pedals and maybe a Cinelli bar/stem combo (I've got to check my attic again). I need to keep this inexpensive.

Interested? Respond here or email me:
