I sold this bicycle to a young college girl. They drove an hour and 15 minutes to pick it up. I was a Phillip with a SA 3 speed hub. It shifted well, you had to slowly shift into each gear. It kind of re mined me of shifting my old BMW motorcycles. I spent a good hour clean it up. I paid $10 for it and sold it for $100. If this bike would have been sold in NYC or Boston it would have gone for about $225. I think she got a good deal. I hope she enjoys the bike.
