I FOUND THE HOLY GRAIL REDLINE SQUAREBACK!!!!!!!!!

Picked this up today.  All original and undrilled Fork and Brake Bridge!  Sweet Araya Rims with heavy duty spokes, Atom front Hub, looks like a Shimano rear Hub, Shimano DX Coaster Brake, Char Rat Trap Pedals, Nankang Tires, unknown Sprocket and Cranks.  They could not find the Seat and Seatpost...Damn!  The green is not a paint but patina from the nickel.  Amazing.  Now that I finally have one I'm not sure what to do with it.  Help?

I can't believe how original this thing is.  You should see these Arayas, they are like motorcycle rims.

I was thinking the same thing but some jackass tried to steel wool a portion of the downtube so the finish is inconsistent.

Thanks man!  I know I'm pretty sure the kid that sold it to me did it. He said he was going to rebuild it at one point but decided against it.  I outright asked did you sand this? Of course he said no, he saw how disgusted I was.

Another thing I forgot to mention, the Seatpost Shim was still in the frame and fell out when I turned it over to check the serial number.  Little things.

That's what it was sold to me as, but I didn't think the 76s went beyond 2500 of so? Thanks for the info.

Nothing.  Leave it alone. Treat it like an artifact.  Anything you do to it is only going to ruin/devalue it.  Wipe off the dust and enjoy it.  Great find but the true uniqueness is in that awesome condition.  Plenty of polished turds out there.
