| Sadly I am forced to sell my prized bike after owning it for nine years. What you are looking at is a genuine team issue bike. Don't let the Huffy badges mislead you, this is no Huffy. The True Temper steel frame was built by none other than Ben Serotta for one of the Team Crest riders circa 1988. He also built a number of the 7-Eleven Huffy's around the same time period.|
The Seat Tube is '59cm long and the Top Tube measures '58cm. The paint and clear coated decals are in really great shape with a few minor exceptions. One Huffy decal on the seat tube has a portion missing where the paint was scraped, but the frame is clean. I can assure you that there are no dents or dings in it.
When I aquired the bike in 1998, most of the original gruppo was gone. In their place are a mixed gruppo, but it was well thought out as they seem to be in perfect harmony with the frame when you ride. Original gruppos are fairly easy to find if you want to restore her. However, the team issue frame is unique, and it's quite rare to find one in such a great condition.
The pics I have do this bike no justice, I apologize for that. My digicam skills are sorely lacking and the majority of the pics were taken in a dark-ish storage room. The frame is really unique and handsome in person, and it's a head turner on the road. She needs a little cleaning as I haven't taken her out of storage in about two years. I'll be doing that this weekend.

I'm asking $1,200 for the bike which is substantially less than what I originally paid for her back in '98, but I also want to be reasonable. I'd be willing to sell just the frame and fork for $950 for those who may already have a high end gruppo, or want to locate an original gruppo. Shipping and insurance is included. I will give the buyer a three day inspection period with a full refund if you are not 100% happy with the bike. I'll gladly accept PayPal or Postal MO.
For a complete list of components currently on the bike -and more pics- please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for looking,

Mom just asked me if i want that bike -- i said HECK yah -- i loved that bike back then ... had it til it got someone cut my chain off a fence and took it ...|
| If you bought your Pegasus frame near Chapel Hill during the early 70's, it was built by a skinny fellow with long hair, beard and wirerim glasses who hung out at "The Clean Machine" bicycle shop in Carrboro. He went to England (or at least said he did) to work in a bicycle factory and learn how to braze frames. After his return, he built custom frames and he used the name "Pegasus." He died young before I left Chapel Hill in 1976 and I had not thought of him in years. He taught me how to repair and maintain the Gitane Interclub I bought new about 1972. If you want someone to adopt your Pegasus frame, and if your frame is from Carrboro, let me know.|
