The Chainlink

I have a authentic 1986 panasonic dx 3000, mens bike perfect for a guy who is 5'8 or taller. I cannot ride it as i am too small for the frame. The bike is old, but its former owner rode it sparingly(I believe he said a month for one summer 25yrs ago) before leaving it in his basement. I have been riding it for a week and it rides fine, but would suit a rider who is taller as i am uncomfortable on it. I'm asking $300 as i've searched online forums and this was the average agreed upon price.
The bike is perfect for conversion to a fixed gear and the guy at the bike shop pointed out several aspects about the frame and the rear tire forks that made it perfect for fixed gear conversion.
Im a female, my bike was stolen recently and though i appreciate having a bike to ride at all, i'd prefer one that fits me (I had a schwinn traveler).
If you're interested in coming to check it out please call stephanie 773 552 4533. ( i would also be down to lower the price for a reasonable rideable trade)

Steph! It died! The frame cracked sometime during Perimeter Ride. I can't believe it's dead!

You should keep that unique rear fender for your next bike.
