    Front and Rear Racks

    I've been holding on to these racks thinking that I'll find a bike to actually attach them to. Not going to happen, mostly because of the size. I ride 52-53 cm bikes and could possibly make a 54cm work, the rear rack ssimply does not fit a bike that small becuse of the bend in the mounting arms. It needs to be fitted to a larger bike where the seat stays would be more upright.

    Any idea what they might be worth?
    It's none of my business what other people think of me.

    I have been wondering the same thing about a near mint set of matching racks that I had been thinking of installing on my 1978 Motobecane. But I probably never will since I know touring is a thing of the past, for me, and I did not even tour much in the past.

    Anyway, I, too, am wondering about their value...

    Randy,

    Are your racks Showa racks? I had a set on my old Miyata 1000 and liked them because of their unique 'style'.

    I'm acquiring an '83 Trek 620 and those might look very nice on her. I'll PM you.
