1983 Eaton Breakaway

1983 Eaton Breakaway

Department store (Eaton's-no longer exists) bike
SOLD

Saw this bike in the background of an ad when I was looking for a workbench for the garage.  Noticed the blue tires and inquired. Picked it up; will likely use the blue parts for another build.  Has some decent Tange forks, which were added later since the originals broke. Seat also added after the fact. Branded as Eaton's, a now defunct Canadian department store, but the serial number looks a lot like the CCM/Supercycle Canadian bikes from the era.

Is this bike a good find? I see one on craigslist right now and the guy is local.

Re: 1983 Eaton Breakaway

Yeah, I saw that too smile  I ended up parting it out so I can't really say how well it rides (I needed some of the blue parts on it for another build).  Don't think it's super high end (it's a department store bike) but if the price is right for you then it might be worth it just to add to a collection or something.
