Hi again to the forum.
I am going to see this bike in person tomorrow and I wanted to round up some tips about what to ask and what to look for. I don't mind if I buy to a bike that is not completely ready to ride, and I expect to do a tune up. I am looking forward to making some changes and adding some parts to change the style of the bike to my taste.
I like mixte/step over frames and this seems like a decent deal having looked through ads for a little while. Normally in my area, for this type of frame people like to overcharge on CL because they are growing in popularity. Anyway, I know to check if the fork is bent, and if the stem is inline with the fork, but beyond that if anyone has some good experience or information on this style of bike I would really appreciate it.
This is the ad:
Tour De France
T.I. RALEIGH Limted
Made in England
20-30 High Tensile
1977 Tour De France 1978
The bike has a 12 inch frame, and 28 inch tires.
If a person would like he/she can test out the bike beforehand. If a person would like more information about the bike, please contact me - information is at the bottom of the ad. The bike would be great for these last days of summer and upcoming fall or for next spring.
The best way to contact me is through e-mail.
Also, if a person would like I could meet him/her at the Rockville metro station (red line), MARLO Furniture store (355/Rockville Pike), or any place near the Rockville area.
Note: I will not ship this item anywhere, and there are no exceptions. I only accept cash. Please serious buyers only.
