    This traveler feels lite for it's size. Sticker says double butted Cro-Mo frame and fork USA made Tru Temper So I'm happy with the quality. And it rode nice. Waiting on the 300EX DR to hopefully show up.

    finally, after 2 years of seeing this univega sit outside leaning up against a shed, i was given permission to take it. Yeah, its a cheap gaspipe frame, but it bugged the hell out of me seeing it just sit there. And its my size. I was suprised that nothing was stuck or rusted, it cleaned up pretty nice, and will make a nice commuter on my 3 block ride to work. Everything it needed i had laying around, so no money invested at all in this thing, other than i need to get some bar tape.

    Sloar,

    Looks like a good commuter. I hope you get to add some decent distance to your commute. Modolo brake levers on it, very diversity minded. Those are so nice looking I hate to put hoods on them.

    No hoods on the levers. Took me forever to take off the anodized gray and to polish them. I am going to put bar wrap on it though. For some reason I had one roll of cloth wrap left, so I threw that on for now.

    Oh, I thought you had track grips on it. Looking at the levers, they are polished. I never thought of doing that. Guess I don't mind the grey/black that they come in. Polished does look nice. The Univegas are such nice bikes even a lower end one makes for a good ride.

    Happy commuting !

    Got this yesterday from an utterly hapless flipper. I arrived a half an hour earlier than I expected and he was desperately trying to install a bent and otherwise useless RD, with an even more destroyed RD in pieces at his feet. The whole scene stank of WD40 and flopsweat I would have told him I'd just take the just frame set and brakes for a slight discount, but I think (judging by his tools and apparent skill level) I'd be stuck there most of the day. The original wheel set turned out to be surprisingly true the brakes properly adjusted and functional, so I guess the guy hadn't messed with those yet.

    Anyway, a Shogun Prairie Breaker I, circa 1986 based on the info on the Shogun serial number thread, but I thought all the major manufacturers had dumped the groovy biplane fork design by then. Anybody know? (I forgot to take some pix before I started taking it apart.)

    ^ That Shogun's going to get the drop bar treatment, so I can dispose of my clunker.

    Nice Shogun, caveman.

    OT, but I picked up a California Audio Labs Icon MkII cd player for $6 at a thrift today.
    Apparently these went for $1k new.

    Chuckk,

    That most certainly qualifies as a find ! Congrats there. Any idea where the forks could be ?

    Size 58 ? Like the number in the S/N ?

    Nice looking classic Shogun, Caveman!

    That's a great score on the Tesch Allez, @Chuckk !

    I've haven't stumbled upon any catches for a bit also, but yesterday I picked up a Haro Designs Impulse Comp mountain bike. Unknown year. It is still mostly stock with Exage 400 LX, and in good condition. It was listed as Impulse bike on CL. Almost flew under my radar and probably a lot of other people's.
    But I recognized the distinct E-stay frame configuration to a similar Haro Extreme.
    I got it for a 1/3 less than the asking price and left happy with a vintage and very cool MTB.
    Already started stripping and overhauling and touch up. I will swap in some Deore components from the parts bin. With all the off-road riding I've been doing lately, looking forward to riding the single track with a wider handlebar and mtb levers instead of my drop bar conversion.

    So I go to this vintage car swap meet today. While looking around for anything flathead or early Ford pickup I could find, I ran across this. 2010 Electra Amsterdam Sport. 9 speed with a Sora RD, but I can fix that in a few minutes. The price was definitely right, and it's SUPER clean. This bike is shockingly light too. It weighs about what a decent aluminum road bike would weigh. MSRP was right around $500, and I picked it up for $150. I was thinking of selling it, but it fits me perfectly. Might sell a couple of other bikes instead.,,,,BD

    I snagged a sweet vintage (1986?) Ross Mt. Hood MTB today for a great price. A really pretty, recent Umass grad was moving cross country and looking to get rid of it. It's pretty much all there and original except the tires and saddle. A bit of surface rust on the chrome, but will polish up nicely. And check out the brakes, front and rear roller cams, Sweeeet!

    Couple of weeks ago I found two of these. Called the bike shop that sold them with the SN's and did not get a reply. Since they are bottom of the line up, I assumed they were discarded during a move as they had a movers label on each seat. I tried to find the owners without success. No pics but I do have a CL listing as reference:

    2004 Trek 3500 21" - $225 (Alexandria)


    Bike is in slightly used condition with a couple of scratches on the frame but otherwise near new condition. Frame has been waxed and brakes adjusted for the perfect ride. Fit for tall person from 5'11" to 6' 2"

    Nice score. I saw that and was very tempted, but it was just a bit too far to justify the travel. I thought about looking for a facilitator because of the great price, but I already have the same exact bike, a bit larger, with decals. Glad someone on here was able to get it. Nice triple-butted Tange frame, and the roller cams are fun. What size is that one? If you decide to let it go keep me in mind ...

    @pedalnmetal: Thanks. It's an 18" frame, and yeah the decals are almost all gone. The Tange triple butted and Ross decals on the seat tube are intact though. I think I'm going to overhaul the whole bike and enjoy it for a while. Where are you located?

    I picked mine up last year and it still needs an overhaul. I think it's a 20" (or 22"?) - probably a bit too big for me, but I'm determined to make it work, maybe as a drop bar at some point. I'm in Cambridge now, but soon moving to Metrowest. Enjoy the ride.
