I recall seeing one of those Fuji folding MTB's with Marlboro branding, certainly the rugged bike of choice for the Marlboro Man. I can just picture him riding it into the sunset with his long duster in the wind, rusty chain squeaking. Cramping and wheezing...

I remember a huge spoof Marlboro billboard in SF that had the two Marlboro men riding their horses in the sunset and the caption read: "You know Tex, I sure do miss my right lung."

It's been a while since i've posted more finds but they have been starting to come in now.

the first ones a Velo Sport 5 speed. I plan on making it my single speed since it's my size.


This ones not vintage but I figured i'd post it anyway. I get these Hooligans offten, per year I must get 8 or more. they suck. take note of the "light Weight" thats a 100% lie, those bikes are very heavy lol

I like the "Swing Arm" label too, in case someone didn't know what that bright yellow thing was, lol. Following that
line of logic, shouldn't the cranks be labeled "cranks", the stem labeled "stem" and so on?,,,,BD

I picked up this rather nice 1985 Stumpjumper Sport on CL Sunday. The ad had been posted Saturday morning and I didn't see it till later that night. Suprised when he emailed me Sunday morning. Seller was the original owner and said it was just taking up space.

Awesome Stumpjumper! I never knew they came in an orange like that, it's almost the same as on my Rockhopper, my first real mountain bike.

I hope I come across one of those one day soon.

Pair of new Vittoria Zaffiro tires from CL for $15. $7.50 is pretty cheap for any tire:

1 Pair Vittoria Zarrio Tires 700X25C wire bead like new

I just bought a brand new Felt these were the tires that came on the bike, used for a quick test ride around the bike dealership and now I have them up for sale. Nothing wrong with them I just put Schwalbe on all my bikes. They are wire bead and are 700X25C in size. $15 gets the pair. Call XXX-XXX-XXXX or email me for more info. Thanks XXXX

Thanks tashi. I think the color is somewhere between orange and yellow, maybe even a mustard. The bike has been ridden but cared for. The quick test ride I did yesterday, she felt great. The Deore drivetrain is very smooth and quiet, and the bike feels responsive and nimble, more like a relaxed road bike than mtb.

This is the second early Stumpy I've come across. I picked up an '86 on CL about 4 years ago for $20 that was in almost the same shape. Gave it to my brother in law because he's a big Specialized fan and he rides the heck out of it. This one will be a keeper.

Great catch. I just started haunting CL because I want a spare bike hanging around just in case.

1985 Cilo with Shimano 600. I love chrome forks. Anyone want to trade a Mavic front tubular wheel for a clincher?

i grabbed this '84 Schwinn World at the flea market this weekend for $7. it's a 50cm (aka, WAAAYYY too small for my 6'5"). i'm gonna clean it up and sell it. hopefully i'll make enough out of it to buy some parts for my bike. this will be my first 'flipper'.

Hi JCO1385 !

You got a deal - and at that price you might actually make a few dollars on this one - but more importantly, you'll discover that you'll have so much fun that you won't know/care if you make a profit.

To help you along though, check out some deals on Nogliders thread for the better deals out there.

Rescued this Scott Montana as a frameset from the LBS a long while ago - put a spare set of wheels on it, swapped out the crankset (it looked horrible), and fitted a compact FD to it:

This goes back a few years. I was checking the outside pile of bikes at the local Salvation Army thrift store. The "good" bikes were inside the store and sold for $12 and the outside "junkers" sold for $3. Well, I found a late 60's Bottecchia with Campagnolo components except that it had rusted out steel rims and spokes (but still laced to Campy large-flange hubs) and a destroyed seat and rustey chain. With a bit of work and a large trash can I had a good frame in need of paint, but with the original decals, and a pile of old Campy components. My profit on e-Bay, accounting for the $3 cost, was over $400.

Not really in the "vintage" category, but today I found a Blackburn Fluidtrainer for $5 at the thrifts. It appears to be in excellent shape... I almost fell over when I found it.

That is what I call an uber junk pile. Nice score and nice profit.

I would love to find an Olympic with a 25" frame to replace my old one (which I crashed).
