I threw a bid at a kind of beat looking Cross Country Racer that was on eBay while ago, guessing that it was in nicer condition than it looked. I was a little surprised to get the bike for $480. The paint, cool in its time, was faded and worked and there was a fair amount of surface rust. I had the bike stripped and powdercoated, in pink, as an homage to Jacquie Phelan's rockin' Phoenix. I had an extra Type II fork kicking around so I swapped that out. Final touches included a more period correct seatpost, a WTB shim for the WTB bar and a Salsa stem. I think it turned out pretty nice!

For some reason that color pink only looks good on bikes. Oh and I have been known in the past to say there are no good deals left on Ebay, but sir you have proven me wrong. Nice score and clean restore.

I saw that one and was watching but I figured I would be outbid so I didn't bother :madman:

I saw it in person today Noah. It does look sweet. And you'll be happy to know I prevented sort of a "tea bagging" molestation from occurring. ;)

hopefully one of you were able to continue the tradition of a little "deposit" in the seat tube with BP's stored bikes. Best looking Potts I've seen with cantilevers! :)

Dude, you should put down some 'small of the back girl tattoo' graphics on it like the Salsa in the background. Now *that's* class.

Sweet bike.

Graph bro... really getting into graph.

The person who puts the orders into Taiwan for Salsa should take a design cue from Pott's ultra sano graphic treatment.
