    Hi Sixtyfiver. . . It's not often you come across an old Raleigh with rod brakes like that around here - or anywhere for that matter.
    Very nice find!

    I got three lately, A sports and a brindgestone, neat badge on brindgestone, and a CCM Elan thats missing alot of spokes, looks like they kept breaking and the owner kept cutting them till the wheel gave out lol. the sports is a mystery date rear hub because the hole for oil port was stamped over it for some reason lol, looks like a 72' modelthough

    also I like the van in Sixty's post, the antenna looks like you can harpoon someone lol

    We had a Dodge Tradesman 200 ( The Black Bullet ) back in the day when customizing was what you did with them,shag carpet and all.

    This little GT Mountain bike was dirty and sans a seat post. Since it was so unappreciated by its PO, I purchased it quite economically. I cleaned it and tuned it, and added a new chain. I can see why these double-triangle GT's are popular as urban commuter conversions.









    Next, we have a genuine Titanium-Boron framed IRONMAN from Huffy, that I pulled form my neighbors trash the other day. It's virtually unused (still having the inventory tag on it) and just needed a good bath and brake adjustment. I had to reseat the tires so that the Schraeder valves lined up with the holes in the rims (probably explains why they hadn't been aired up since X-mart.)

    I had to grease the seat post and stem as well. They had been pounded in DRY , undoubtedly by the same illustrious retail organizaton that sold the bike in the first place.

    I know there are a lot or Ironman aficianados out there.







    PS - Love that van in Sixty's post above - One of those old Dodge Tradesman vans would be a great one to take on a cross-country bike buying expedition! I'd make sure it had shag carpeting - a good stereo, and a few black light posters too.

    Picked up this Trek 1400 which is in great shap. Just a cleaning and tune up. The KHS was free from a neighbor after helping him load his moving van so he could move to Oregon. It has never even seen the dirt.

    There are two types of left grip shifts that I have seen, indexed ones with one click for each chain ring, and "friction" ones that have multiple clicks between indicated chain rings. I'm cool with the latter.

    Here is my newly-found 1972 Fuji Finest.
    (I haven’t seen many of these – but I am not sure if they’re all that uncommon.)

    - I do have a little work ahead of me, in overhauling and detailing it, but it was a well-maintained bike by its PO. Aside, it has a few extra red and yellow 3M reflective tape strips on it, and it lacks the usual paint logos on the DT and TT – but I’m not entirely sure if it ever had them. – At least it’s never been repainted.

    Double butted Chromoly, Belt leather saddle, Nittos, Suntour Vx rear DR, CompeV front (not shown in pic). Weinmanm concave rims replace the original sprint rims …
    (I’m thinking about gumwalls even though the tires on it are good.)

    I am glad to see that went to a good home. Go to velocals (JRestore) for replacement decals.

    So when did Weinmann Concave rims first get produced? That's the oldest bike I've ever seen them on? I have seen them as late as 88, and as early as 78?,,,,BD

    I had a late 88's Trek 360 that had them and I thought I had seen them listed in a mid 70's catalog for one of the lines I thought it was Raleigh but I cant find it listed till late 70's.

    They were already on the market in the late 70s when I started working in a bike shop.

    A couple of finds at a local townwide sale this morning.......A Carlton Super Course with an extra set of wheels. Shes in pretty rough shape but the Carlton hoods are in nice shape and those alone are likely worth the price of admission. Probably the lightest bike I have personally encountered. Also a Trek 600 Series. Both to big for me.............

    My catch of the Day was a Vetta saddle, made by Selle Italia, and suspiciously looking exactly like a Turbo. Nearly perfect condition at a junk store, for $5 .

    The last two bikes on my list are a 50's Lenton Grand Prix and a '64 Raleigh Record.

    If you care to read, following is the mini-saga of a bike hunter:

    It's been a virtual drought this garage sale season for me. I was ready to write off wasting any more time this summer when I spotted the ad for a Gitane at an estate sale. Went there to discover a nice mixte with fenders...asking price $200. Estate sales! No thanks. However, while waiting in line for the house to open, I struck up a conversation with a friendly antiques 'picker' and was overheard by yet another friendly 'picker' who told me he had a nice Italian bike with Campagnolo derailleurs I could have for $100. Told me to call him later in the day so he could tell me more about it.

    On to other sales, I was beginning to feel defeated again. However, I stumbled on a cyclist's garage sale (not a common occurrence) and picked up this Dura Ace Triple stash and wheels for a screaming deal:





    Feeling a little less glum, I started thinking used modern may be the better way to go, since there is probably more of it available. Afterall, vintage stuff is naturally getting scarcer and the competition for it fiercer.

    I then called the guy with the vintage Italian bike and determined over the phone it is was a boom model with Campy Valentino derailleurs. Not terrible, but not worth the trip to me. As I declined and said goodbye, he mentioned he did have a couple Masi bikes I might be interested in...

    ...an hour or so later, the vintage madness returned and I came home with these two, one an early 70s Italian constructed Gran Criterium, and the other a later model (not sure which yet) repainted by Cyclart. Also met a very friendly and interesting self professed 'hoarder' who had some amazing stuff, including bikes.

    Here are the rest of the pictures.

    Can you tell why I'm so excited?
    Nice Rudge Tom. What year is it? It looks like the crank has been replaced unless not all Rudges had the "Hand" crank. I think I saw one on the bay recently. I still haven't done anything with the 48 Rudge I have except buy a set of Raleigh lights to go with the Dynohub.

    You know--I've sort of started being seduced by modern bikes and components myself, but just looking at that gold Masi makes me remember why I love vintage steel. I can't even imagine how I would feel if I came across one in my size. Truly gorgeous bike(s) and a nice score.

    Any chance you'll tell us what the damage was??

    The 70's Gran Criterium is a bit rough (at least the frame), but the handbuilt (im)perfections are definitely a treat to see. The seller claims (and I believe him) he was passing them on to me for what he originally spent. He said he had the GC for 18 years I think, and the newer Masi for 8-10 years. When he first acquired them, they weren't cheap, but you can adjust for recent ebay madness. In other words, they weren't a 'Catch of the Century' in terms of economic value, but they were a decent price.

    My already modest find today is made more modest by those posts. Cyclist garage sale where there's Dura Ace!?! Two Masis?!? OK.

    Wheelset for $30, 105 hubs (7spd) laced to Wolber gtx2 hoops. Also included: Barely used Cont GP 4000 rear tire, booted Victoria Open Corsa front. No tubes. Spinning smooth as butter now, there's some corrosion on the rear hub shell and on a couple of the spoke nipples.

    No. So let's say they were priced well enough that I'd buy them at any size, which I did.

    Trust me, before those finds I had sworn off wasting my time on garage sales anymore. Were the bike gods intervening? In 7 years of collecting, I've never had luck like this.
