    I have a 400 that I've been riding for about 5 years and I think it's explained pretty well here. The ride is not "harsh" but you do feel the road. I really like mine

    Has the quill seatpost, got the pedals with toe clips and like-new Christophe straps.
    Looks to be LX100 Light Action, I've not counted cogs. If it's 6sp, it's going 600EX.
    Local guy, wanted it gone. I paid what a seatpost would go for.
    My size, but no clue what I'll do with it, besides a makeover.

    Not much of a catch, but I saved this old Nishiki from the Garbage truck.

    Son of a ***, a Technium frame just got posted on c/l, $60:

    Raleigh Technium / New Tires - $6025 (Coeur d'Alene)



    Raleigh Technium Tri-Lite
    Bought this during the summer as this years winter project. Built it up and it's just too small for me.
    Size (Center to top) is 21"
    Frame is made from 6061-T8 Aluminum Thermal Bonded Alcoa.

    Frame and Fork ONLY but comes with : headset, stem, fr Suntour derailleur, and recently overhauled Shimano BB.
    Also has STI cable adapters fitted to the shifter lugs. Rear brake cable is internally routed. Accepts a 26.8 dia seatpost.
    NO mudguard eyes.
    Overall the frame is nice, no dents, cracks or gouges. Scraping on some of the decals as shown in pics, and the red paint touched up here and there.

    Also comes with 2 brand new Rubena Syrinx V80 racing/training tires 700x23c in red and black.

    Frame and tires - $60
    TIRES ONLY -$25

If I flip it on CL it'll probably end up in the hands of the hipsters, so I'm tempted to rob the Shimano Arabesque deraillers & shifters & do the SS conversion myself first, or replace them with something not as pretty.

    I know this thread is old, but this one just like the one I bought from a guy off Craigslist in Sunnyvale, CA for $280. 58cm, Arabesque Shimano 600 rear derailleur and tube shifters, old Dura-Ace front derailleur. Old saddle, coming apart. I wonder if it's the same... mine has a clip-in pedals though.

    I don't know, that would make a fine campus bike for someone. Certainly deserving of better than the trash/recycling pile. I applaud your save!

    I rescued this at a LBS today. Not quite sure what it's future will be, but I figure I can part it out if nothing else. Early 80s Pinarello....

    Yeah, that's one of the features that caught my eye, also. I'm not really familar with torpados, but I think it might be a fairly low end model, I'll have to do some checking around. After checking everything for fit/tightness, I lowered the saddle, switched out the pedals, and sent the wife off around the block. She loved it and said it shifted great, Now I get to clean it up, touch up the few chips in the paint, wrap the bars and lube a few areas.

    Here is a Basso with Campy front & rear derailleurs & shifters. Everything else was mostly Cambio and Cambio Rino, cranks, stem, seat post, saddle. Forks were stamped with Cambio and fitted with Modolo Speedy (early version) brakes. Rescued it off my LBS euthanasia truck for $70 and spruced it up with new tape, cables & housings. Extremely light for a 59 cm bike. The Rino hardware is lighter than campy.

    I had to put my cheaters on, but it looks like it says Competition? There's something about that bike that I like, a LOT? Weird because that is my least favorite era of Peugeot paint schemes. It just has that coolness factor, and speaks to me.,,,,BD


    It almost looks like the chain needs to be popped, to correct a cross chain that severe! Definitely WAY too short!

    Don't know what I am going to do with it as of yet.
