This old neon Palisades was bought from Revin, who had been commuting on it for a year (some people don’t deserve nice things!). He’d bought it from a friend, and thought it was about 10 years old.
The Joytech/Alesa wheels aren’t original – neither are the saddle, too-small seat post and pedals, but the Zolatone paintwork is in really good shape and the drivetrain and brakes are all original.
This old bike is currently undergoing restoration – a few new parts, a few new old stock parts, a lot of degreasing and polishing, and at some point I’ll get around to all that neon yellow.
