Basically new. I bought this for my parents’ anniversary 15 years ago and they rode it twice. It’s been under a cover in their garage ever since. Figured it was time to get it to people who will enjoy it.

I uncovered it and dusted it off, put air in the tires and rode it around. I’m 6’ and it worked with the seat post raised, but it was great for my 5’8” Dad with the post lower. The rear/stoker seat goes even lower.

The only blemishes in the paint are like my from being bumped in the garage, and everything seems to work like new.

Interestingly the hubs are disc compatible, but the frame isn’t, so kind of weird.

I have it in my garage now, so test rides are available.

Only “upgrades” are water bottle cages and a gel seat cover/pad on the rear seat.
