Good eye Roger! I decided to take it out to the garage to polish it up - it doesn't get much love because I have a few machines that are easier to use...

The transmission's toast. The car owes me nothing- bought it for $700, hit a deer a week later, got a $2700 value for it. Pocketed the money.

I have a line on a $200 refurbed transmission and a friend owes me some lift time. It might not be dead yet. Kind wish it would just die already, but so it goes.

Picked this up on Saturday. I believe it is a 1988 or 89. From what I can tell I think it is in the Quantum series. It has a complete 1988 Shimano 600/Ultegra group on it. The rear wheel is a Campy and the front is a Mavic. I have the bars out and the seat is a cheapo. It will clean up nice, unfortunately it is to big. I wish the top decals were not missing so I would no for sure which model it is.

Been an awesome week on Craigslist for me. First I sold a Varsity for $140. Then picked this up for $120:


1989 Miyata 914, full 105. Rough condition, been partially badly repainted and the front wheel is out of round, but a steal for the price.


Then I found this guy for $150:


1983 Trek 700. Frame is all Reynolds 531, Suntour Superbe components, Campy hubs, and those weird Weinmann concave rims.

Gonna have a heck of a time choosing which one to keep and which one to sell.

Nice snags, Pat. Both of them.
If I absolutely positively had to part with one of them, I'd keep the Trek.

Got this for $100 two days ago. Not only that, but today I found a crisp 1991 $10 bill in the saddle bag that the original owner threw in. It even came with the original receipt.

This is 'as found' condition.

So far I think you might have the title for 2013.

Well its only a 1200, which was a mid level bike when it was new in 1992, but the bike alone would easily be $300 to $400 in the market I just moved from (Eugene, OR), not to mention all the extras. I'm pleased with it.

Ross Gran Tour Pro (x2)

I picked up two of these curbside, along with two BSO MTBs. Pictured bike is 1980-ish Ross Super Gran Tour Professional from Allentown, PA, with full Arabesque 600 group except for transplanted turkey levers. Its identical big brother (in my size) has the 600 levers too. Awfully nice group set for a heavy-ish 1020 frame.

Lady I got them from called me because I put an ad on CL asking for unwanted bikes to rehab and give away to the local poors. (I actually do this, although the ad hasn't run for almost a year.) When I told her I might keep the bigger one for myself, and offered her $50 for it, she just said "Take it." Two Rosses on the roof rack, two MTBs in the back hatch, pretty good $0 haul for a half-hour drive.

Picked this Dunelt up today from a CL ad that stated they had a "vintage bike lot of parts". Mostly generic parts and a couple of not so special bikes. This was the best of the bunch. I think it is a repaint, but not too bad for a neighborhood cruiser. Not sure how to date it. I know the Sturmey Archer 3 speeds are not everywhere. The hub itself is worth the $40 I paid for it.
