    Seems that the 400's were TT, 500's 501 w/TT stays, 600 were 531cs, and 700 were 531c.
    (I think that "cs" meant "customer select" or maybe that the 600's had TT stays, too)
    I had heard it was Club Sport? 531 of any iteration is worthy, however. Nice find! I'd ride that.,,,,BD

    And that 750?? Damn!! I would love to find something like that, hehe.

    Nice Trek. I love when they use the vertical logo on both tube. Looks wrong, but looks right

    Is the rack a "Jim Blackburn"?

    Thanks again! @thinktubes - no, the rack has a circular logo that I haven't looked at closely, I'm not sure who made it.

    I love craigslist for things like this. 90% of the bikes I find, I don't even bother haggling- the price is good enough, and I'm quick enough that it works out. I've had some amazing chain reactions buying bikes from someone, making a good impression, and then buying another bike from their friend. That's the kind of advocacy that would be killed haggling over $20.

    Amazing find, I really thought I'd done well buying my beat to hell 610 for $150.

    agreed - there's good karma when it's a fair price and it works out like that.

    I picked this up over the weekend at a swap meet for $100

    It's a 1992 Specialized StumpJumper Comp in Fantastic condition!
    I made a thread about it with more pictures over here:

    I'm not going to bet you that I'm right, but I recall that Blackburn used a weird shaped circular logo. I also know that Blackburn supplied most of the racks for bike manufactures back in the 80's. My Schwinn came from the factory with a Blackburn rack, but my rack does not have any logo's on it, but the Schwinn Catalog listed it as a Blackburn. Your rack looks identical to mine, therefore I'm sort of confident it's a Blackburn.

    Do not use this rack for heavy touring though, it was designed to handle about 25 pounds if I recall correctly. There are a better racks these days on the market.

    Thanks for the reminder, I had to go take a closer look:


    I've heard of Bor Yueh, but this is the first one I've owned. Seems comparable to a Blackburn, nice welds, but light-duty.

    Great looking Fuji, and if that's a Belt or Fujita saddle, I bet you'll love it!

    I just received a Raleigh Sprint three speed, a true garage queen, bought and I do not think ever ridden, even once. In classic coffee brown metallic metal flake.

    Thanks for the pics, obviously not a blackburn. I took another look at your rack and compared it to mine it looks exactly like my Blackburn right down to the reflector even, except mine has no branding markings whatsoever. As far as I know Trek never put that brand on their bikes, besides I think it's a Vietnam company according to what I found in the internet and the name kind of implies that; back when your bike was being made few if anything was being imported from Vietnam. So probably the original owner bought the rack sometime afterwards. The Vietnam company probably copied the Blackburn rack detail for detail, or perhaps their contracted to make them for Blackburn and then made some for themselves, maybe that's why mine doesn't have a brand marking? Japanese copied quite a bit when they were trying to rebuild their economy after the war. But not being an expert on various rack brands I could be entirely wrong on the whole matter.

    Found this old Colnago Super in a dried up reservoir today. Looks to be really beat up. Thinking of doing a restore. What do you guys think?photo 1.jpgphoto 4.jpgphoto 3.jpg

    I would definitely recommend a thorough bead blasting, and then give it a VERY close inspection! It may have rusted though in a few spots and be unsafe to ride. The bead blast will remove much of the rust scale, and any pinholes will mean it's a goner most likely. If it spent time under water, the rust inside the tubes could be worse than the outside. Proceed with caution!,,,,BD

    But wow, if it can be brought back,
    you'll have a Colnago Super, and one hell of a story!
    One of these carbon ruffians asks you
    -"Where did you get that bike?"
    You can say
    "The bottom of the reservoir."

    Rust appears cosmetic. I am looking into possibly the acid bath. All the steel seems solid, though pitted a bit. The bike was never under water. It was prob outside for about a year through 4 seasons. All bearings still turn without much resistance. It also had most original components as well. Missing where just wheels, petals and seat. It seems these frames carry a bit of cred though so might be worth a bit of sweat labor to bring it back!

    If you guys/gals know or could reccomend the best approach to strip all the rust and seal it (inside the frame and out) tell me! Thanks so much.
