Back pack. :D And several trips to the car to unload.
LBS sticker and receipt says the bike was sold new at Lincoln Schwinn Cyclery in Lincoln, NE.
^^^ bikedued, Thanks for the picture and info on the Peugeot!
I did find some white NOS Shimano aero lever hoods. I can't figure out what model they belong to, but the very top reminds me of the hoods on the Exage - not rounded or pointed, but angular. I can take pics later.
Oh, and thanks to Machin Shin, I left the swap meet with more money than I came with, which is a surprise, because I usually can't control myself.
My meager catches: the aforementioned brake hoods for $3, a handful of derailleur and brake cables for $1 a piece, an NOS Avocet Fasgrip 28c tire for $5, the RX100 GS RD w/o pinch bolt for $5, and a 26.0 Cinelli XA for $10. Also a pretty good apple fritter for $1.50 at the concession stand.
Man, I sure need that Tri Color 600 crank? Trade you a Campy Athena with rings for it?.....BD
Let me get some detailed pictures so you can decide for yourself. I was going to just deanodize and polish the whole thing.
Now - how much to sell it for...... Hmmmmmm...... :)
[QUOTE=bigbossman;8890613]I was on the phone with OFG, and while I was chatting with him I was browsing CL. The ad popped up, and it looked to be in my area. After I hung up with OFG I gave the guy a call on the off-chance it was still available. It was, and it was only 1.6 miles away. I grabbed a Grant and hustled over there to claim my prize. All it needs is a dusting and some bar tape.
I only brought back one frameset...
Other good catches were:
Nitto Jaguar stem $5
8 speed Chorus cranks in vg condition w/ nearly new rings for $35
I sold more than half of what I took there including an Olmo frame, a Gitane TDF, a hiten Schwinn, a couple 8 speed Chorus/Athena groups and a ton of random stuff. I was on the infield wearing a Yamaguchi cap under a Pepsi tent.
I wish I had bought the 10 pitch DA track group for $350 and the Gios Profesisonal for $150. Oh well...
As I wasn't able to join Poguemahone at Trexlertown yesterday (combination of work, wife's health, and lack of free money), I spent pretty much all of my free time riding. On the way home today, I do my usual pass by the county transfer station (aka dump, for a rural area that won't put up with a dump next door) and this time I get lucky.
That's an 80's Schwinn Sprint, actually in fair condition despite the broken derailleur, rusted chain and freewheel, etc. The steel rims are clean, the frame's not too banged up. This one is definitely going to go on the fixie and flip pile, the profits giving me some badly needed money for parts on the Trek Pilot I've got gathering dust in the attic.
For me, this is the more interesting one: A Diamondback Ascent EX, I'm guessing late 80's from the components and shifters (I'm not all that conversant on early mountain bikes yet). It's got what appears to be a complete Shimano Mountain LX group. I have a feeling I'm going to clean this one up, rebuild it, hang it in the attic and wait for a proper set of wheels to arrive. I notice I'm starting to mess around with vintage mountain bikes a lot more than I ever expected to.
OK, so it ain't Trexlertown. It still wasn't a bad weekend.
Relatively new guy here. I just received my (1980) Peugeot Super Competition, an ebay purchase, and I am in love with it. I am normally a vintage English three speed lover, but I couldn't pass this one up. It is in remarkable condition for its vintage and It almost rides itself -it is so smooth. Anybody out there know much about these? Any ideas on value? Just want to know if I did okay. Cheers
I helped some lady load four tires into her trunk and she gave me these two Huricanes in return, basicly new condition, they aint high end but they are in good condition.
Sorry for crappy pics it was dark lol. i'll get better after.
Amazing! tells how much of a computer wiz I am.
