Let's see your NOS(ish) bikes, parts, etc.

Is it just me, or has there been an unusual amount of NOS or near-NOS stuff surfacing over the past few months? There have been a couple Motobecanes and a couple Bridgestones on the eBay/CL finds thread and most recently a stunning Raleigh International on the Classic Rides thread, just to name a few.

I've always had a bit of a fascination with this sort of thing myself so I thought it might be fun to put together a little collection of all of our pristine bikes, parts and accessories. I'll start with mine. The Motobecane is a recent acquisition that was boxed in a garage for the past 26 years. The Zeus was assembled but never ridden on the road. The Masi was an NOS frame built up with an NOS Chorus group. It has since been ridden a couple hundred miles, but still counts as "demo" miles with no detriment to the bike. Let's see yours.

1983 Motobecane Grand Touring



1984 Zeus Victoria



1988 Masi Gran Corsa

I've noticed that too, maybe stuff people have been hanging on to, bike shops going under all due to the economy and all that happy crap. That being said my most recent NOS buy was a set of TA dust caps that are on their way.

Here are some NOS hubs I have (might be more around, but these were handy) waiting for the right project.

From top right, clockwise, Suntour Superbe Pro, Maillard/Spidel 700 post-decal, C-Record, Maillard 700 Pro front, Suzue High Flange, Suntour Vx High Flange, Suntour Vx Low flange.



I also agree that there is more stuff coming up for sale recently, probably an effect of the economic situation.

One of them, yes. Everything else is "NOS(ish)."

I will get a better pic of this up tomorrow, but -

This is the very NOS(ish) Bridgestone RB-1 I bought last weekend. It's a 1992 model w/ a very minty Dura Ace 7402 group and some very minty Mavic Open 4CD rims - I also put some new Schwalbe Ultremo R clinchers on there, too

Here's my offerings:

Lemond Team Z- less than 500miles



Early Cinelli- zero miles since CycleArt resto 10 or more years ago



Gios w/full panto parts- Warehouse find many years ago. Still in original shipping carton w/build tags attached. Built and ridden on a test ride, maybe 5 miles on the clock.

My contribution is this NOS 1979 Fuji Gran Tourer. I bought it in November 2007. I saw it on the work stand at my LBS still with the tubes still wrapped. It was my size and I bought it on the spot. I have since sold it to my brother.

Another Fuji Gran Tourer, this one an SE from 1981. Orig. owner claimed to have ridden it about once then then put up in the attic for 27 years. When I got it, it had absolutely no sign that a brake pad had touched the rims. This picture is after I had already ridden it a few times...

I was wondering if you took it East. I think I gave you way too good a deal on it!
