What cool old classic bike did you work on today?

What super sweet bike came across your bike stand today?

I own a small bike shop in Mt Shasta, CA and today a couple of beauts came in for service. The first is a quite old Miyata Ridge Runner and the second a Murray Wildcat.

The Miyata is getting new shifters (6 speed index, super low end shimano thumb levers), I tried to talk them out of it and explained with a little adjustment they would be great. Then even suggested he bring his bike out to the Vintage MTB show we are putting on in a few weeks. Alas, he just couldn't keep the friction shifters any longer, complaining about the difficulty and slipping to a harder gear randomly, and something about his knees I believe, oh well can't win them all.

The Murray is a little better outcome. It's just in to replace the shifter cable and a couple of spokes. I'll dig through a new old stock supply of spokes and try to match the brand and cut/thread if needed to keep the continuity.
