    83ish was when they were starting to get decent, and the derailleur was worth the purchase. Pretty nice catch all around, really.,,,,BD

    I think I'm going to try to use the sale or trade of the campy RD to supply most of the parts I need to complete the super sport, so if anyone has a 6-speed wheelset and/or cyclone/superbe rd...

    Edit: see pics a couple posts downAttachment 349891Attachment 349892

    While not as cool as most bikes on here, I'm pretty stoked! I may have very well saved this one and its twin from the dump, the people were having a four hour garage sale friday, and gave the impression that anything left was getting trashed. It's the same bike in both pics but I got another one exactly like it as well, one 19" one 21". So far Ive overhauled the headset and opened up the shifters on the 19" and freed them up, they weren't working due to old dry grease. I bought both for $10.00 and the guy threw in a new set of tubes, I think he would have given them to me for even less if I would have offered less, they were glad to get rid of them. I'm pretty sure the bikes have less than a 100 miles or so on them because the rotten tires looked unused, unfortunately they were left outside for a long time, but it's pretty dry here in Co. so they will clean up well. These bikes are pretty nice for entry level bikes, they are light chromo frames. They have exactly the same groupo as my wife's early 90's hardrock, but I'm pretty sure they are lighter in spite of the fact they they are bigger. (sorry I know the pics are lousy, but hey, what can a lousy photographer do!?)

    Got from CL today guy asking $100, traded for some car audio:

    Handle bars are unfortunate, seller thought these were original, and thought the bike was a 2002 model, lol

    Sugino Post is scratched up quite badly, I'm not sure if some of them are too deep to get out fully:


    frame is about 2CM too short, but the top tube is just right so I think this will make a good home for the Ultegra/Dura Ace 9 speed stuff I have along with some neuvation m28 wheels

    Nice bike, the handlebars have got to go but you can find nice bars from Nitto that would look original, as well as a seatpost from Nitto to get rid of that scratched up one.

    French Gypsy

    I picked up this nice old French Gypsy with some very nice vintage parts. There is a 72 stamped near the seat post, so I assume it's a 1972. It came with Fiamme pista rims and Campy Hubs, Old steel Cinelli Milano stem, and Cinelli pista bars. Cranks were Maxy cranks with Piste Marcel Berthet Lyotard pedals and cages. Saddle was a 1980's Concor Super.

    As found



    After a quick cleaning







    In need of some Mothers polishing

    Is that 72 on a lug? if so, that may be the angle of the lug, in degrees. Nice paint, and a fine looking bike.

The most notable bikes are, a 60cm road bike with Mafac Canti's ( started it's own ID thread), a Murray heavy weight, a Miyata Competition 512, a Lotus Excelle and a Gary Fisher with a Nexus inter 7 rear hub that works good.

    The Miyata was given to me after a friend found it in the trash, it has white paint splashed all over it that looks to be from a mishap in a garage. The paint cleans right off and it will be a nice bike once done. The Lotus was from my boss who just had it hanging outside in the weather, I took it and will clean and polish it all up before returning it to him so he can see how nice it is.

    I haven't found a bicycle deal at a thrift store in years. Today was half price day, so I wentt to support my wife's consignment clothing business (we pretty much always can find sellable clothing). Of course, just in case, I headed over to the bike area to check it out. WTF? Four decent bikes, at really low prices. Quick call to the wife, as I could not grab four at once, and then directly to the checkout. Two Trek mtbs, one a 930, and a couple of basic road bikes (Fuji Gran Tourer and Schwinn Sprint). Sure, I have sworn off mtbs, but the 930 had nice STX components, newish road tires, good pedals, etc. The 820 was a cool metallic green, good pedals, shifters, decent tires. The road bikes were rough, but the paint was good on both of them, the Fuji had a nice crankset and a Suntour Vx long cage RD, etc.

    This 1976 Raleigh Record Mixte was left unsold at a yard sale and in a pile at the end of the laneway for garbage. I spoke to the owners, they let me leave the bike overnight as we were on our way to dinner out with friends and had no room in the car. I handed her $5 for her trouble and being so nice about it. I took the van over the next morning and picked it up.

    Its missing some parts but could be fixed up. I needed some Raleigh parts so it was a good deal for me. It will now have a future, I just don't know what that is yet.

    ^ Miyata 914. And a good price at $150. At $250, not so much, in that condition, but it should clean up nicely. :thumb"

    Good size for someone around 6 foot or so.

    Not much happening here no bikes of any kind in the trash. Did get a beach cruiser a week ago or so. But I guess I should post elsewhere in the forum.

    I hope this qualifies.

    Last Sunday I bought a Schwinn Traveler that was on CL for $40. When I arrived at the seller's house he insisted on me taking a 1980 Continental that was hanging in the back of his garage. He said that if I didn't take it, it was headed for metal recycling. So...

    I didn't really want the Continental, but the threat of recycling a perfectly good bicycle worked. When I got both bikes home, I put air in the tires, adjusted the brakes, and took them for a test ride. Everything worked on both bikes. The Conti has a bulge in the rear tire that I need to address - along with obvious cosmetic issues. Even though the Conti is a tank, it has a very nice ride. Looks like I have another project.

    That is a great find. I don't have any Mixte framed bikes, but I have always thought they were the best step-through frame solution. I love the wingnuts on the front axle - rear axle also?

    I snagged a gold Cinelli today with a Record group but Suntour barcons and Araya rims. It is rough and will need a lot of work but it was cheap and close to my size so, home it came. Any idea on the year? The serial number is 2752 but I know that may not mean much as Cinelli is not known for their organizational skills. I have never seen a gold painted one, perhaps that can narrow down the year.
