Have : 1994 Bridgestone RB-1, 59cm. All original parts minus seat post and saddle. Color is red, condition is 9/10. With the exception of a couple nicks the frame is mint.

Want: 62cm RB-1 of any vintage (94 would be rad!) in equal condition. I'm mostly looking to trade the frame only, I'm not too too concerned with the condition of the components. Pictures upon request!

I would like a cream or other light colored step-through or mixte - current light touring has 51 cm seatpost, 54 cm top-tube. I'm about 5'7", so anything around that? I would like it for a commuter, so not terribly high end, but easy to fix up for a newbie would be lovely.

Thanks!

56 sounds a little big for you, unless you're all torso!

Well, I am mostly torso, but I know it doesn't really make sense. Maybe I completely butchered using the measuring tape?

Possibly, but I'm 5' 9.5" and ride a 55 in vintage terms and I'm all torso. Measure again just to be sure.

Just did, looks like I did get it wrong! >.< The top tube is more like 54 cm, with the seatpost more like 51 cm. I did the measurements three times, and this is the average. I'm really bad at this! My mother is a bit taller than I am, she's more like 5'8", so perhaps this is a little big for me. Oh well!

Thanks.

Cool, so you're probably looking at a 53 or something. What's your budget? There's a 53cm Fiorelli with fenders on the Boston CL for $250. Could probably talk him down as it's been listed for a while. Not a mixte though. I almost bought it but he took forever to send me pics and I got something else in the meantime.

It's pretty, but I really do need a step-through or mixte - I like wearing dresses! The budget is dependent on how pretty it is and how close it is to the look I want (ideally, cream or white frame with brown or blue) - maybe about $300 for the complete set-up. Not firm, though.

Hey Alex, did you get my last PM?

Anyway, here we go:

Quote:
I am ISO:

-Campagnolo vintage parts -- Cranks (170-175), and BB (English). The BB doesn't need to be NR, it just needs to work with the cranks. The cranks, I'm open to anything really now from the '75 era.


I have lots and lots of stuff including just briefly:

-Campagnolo Icarus RD sans pulleys
-Ideale 80 saddle rails...perfect for a recovering project
-Random parts including Schwinn Approved centerpulls (long reach), Shimano DT shifters with cool hoods, Weinnmann brake levers, etc.
-High polish Sugino Campy knock-off cranks, 170mm
-Other stuff. Lots of it. Including other stuff. Let me know what you need.

Ah-hah alright. I'll keep an eye out. Shame cause I took a few mixte frames out to the curb last month. I tend to get free things often. You could build your own up.

I did, and I'm kinda torn about what to do about it right now, which is why I was waiting to respond sorry. Saw a local turbo, may snag it!

Haha, that's good, because I really love him. I even got a tattoo of his poem "plant Magic dust".

I would certainly be willing to build one up, but you all might have to suffer through the consequences of giving a newbie a big project. There will be lots more "help me! help me!" threads on here.

Then help me find a bike to do eet to! Seriously, though, if I am going to build up a bike, where would I get a cheap-o one? I've been looking at CL and haven't found much...Thrift stores, mayhaps?

Not sure about color, but these appear on Boston CL.

http://boston.craigslist.org/nos/bik/1944914578.html

Might be able to put a cotterless crank on this.

I also have a light green three speed in my basement that needs work.

Xanthochrome,

If you can't find what you want in the Boston area, I have a few bikes that may be of interest; 3 are Mixtes and 2 are step thru bikes. Some need TLC and may need parts to complete:

Peugeot UO-18: http://www.flickr.com/photos/stl914/...7622060915115/

Motobecane Super Mirage: http://www.flickr.com/photos/stl914/...7623758736751/

Terranaut Ariel: http://www.flickr.com/photos/stl914/...7622185532786/

Raleigh Sports: http://www.flickr.com/photos/stl914/...7623572864082/

I also have this Raleigh Sprite frame that I may consider parting with, but may use the stem and saddle for another project I need to complete:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/stl914/...7622653476718/

If any of these interest you, send me a PM and we can talk. Always willing to help another C&V'er.

If it's at all inspiring last weekend was rolling by a yard sale and thought, on a whim, to check for bikes. Volia a (ROUGH shape) white Sekine Mixte. Asking price ? 5 bucks. I'm hoping to make it my 'first flip bike'.

They're out there!

If anyone has a pair of Bluemels fenders/mudguards they don't want, please let me know... Especially in an unusual color... Blue? Lilac? I have stuff to trade, probably exactly what you want. Well, we'll work on that part.
