The $50.00 Superbe

Someone before me spent a little bit of money on this bike before I got it last weekend.
Not sure if they spent wisely….
I posted before that it appears someone tried to re-furbish the rear hub and had only succeeded in wrecking it.

The sun gear was completely ground down…
And the hub was way too tight. The adjustable cone side had the locknut and washer reversed as well.

A healthy sun gear below.

The headset has been replaced and the chain and cables are new.
It also has a suspension seat post. The Dynohub works.

In any case, it’s back on the road and I may take it to work for a while to get around on.
