Year: 1970 something
Obtained: Sept 2011
Found: Bike Works co-op
Paid: $5.00 (Frame-set plus a few parts)
At the same time I picked up the blue Peugeot UO-8 frame-set at my local bike co-op I found yet another lonely frame-set from the island of misfit toys, a yellow, dirty 10 speed with a very cool Tiger head badge. I had never heard of this brand, neither has the internets, and I ended up getting the same "please take that thing and get it out of here" deal that I got on the Peugeot.
After doing some major cleaning and then waxing of the frame it was time to source some parts to get this baby back in the road. In my parts bin I had; derailleurs, 6 speed freewheel, a sealed bottom bracket, stem and a better seat as using a faux velvet seat on a rain bike is just not done. I hit Bikeworks for; stem shifters, handlebars, brake levers, pedals, and a crank-set. As always the bike got new; rubber, cable and housing, chain and bar tape. I had been so pleased with how the red accents looked on the white Peugeot that I took a flier and used red housing and bar tape on the Tiger too. I thought it worked out fine.
