I bought this bike from a neighbor for 40€. It was hanging in a wall, into a warehouse, for about twenty years, so the frame is bi-color: left side is red, but right side is orange :D. I changed the two wheels, rear to use a coaster hub and front to match rear color; changed the chainring, because old one was for french thread pedals and can't use modern ones; and change the front brake caliper just for modernize it with a dual pivot caliper. Later, I get other bike for commuting, so transform this to fixed gear and nowadays I use it for city+road routes when it's too late to mountainbiking.
