For those of you who are nostalgic for California, this bicycle has two California Bicycle license stickers at the bottom of the seat tube. Claimed weight of 26.8 lbs.
For less than the price of a generic Bike Shaped Object that anyone might buy online or from a store that sells bicycles in the Toy Department, you could be riding this vintage bicycle with quality components. The fact that it is still rolling down the road is a testament to how well it was built.
