    Here is a nice looking Eisentraut and still a reasonable price. At first I thought maybe a headbadge may have been removed. However, the seller (maybe BFer?) recommends drilling 2 more holes in the frame, in addition to the 2 holes he's already drilled in the headtube and 2 holes he's drilled in the BB.

    This isn't for a bike but I thought it was humorous:

    Saris Bones 2 - bike carrier - $75 (Oshkosh)

    Date: 2010-08-04, 11:18AM CDT
    Reply to:

    Like new Saris Bones 2 - trunk mount bike carrier. Used once for about 2 miles to bring my bike home from the shop. In original box. Easy to attach and remove.
    Does it seem like he bought a brand new expensive rack to move the bike 2 miles? Seems like there would be other simple ways to get a bike TWO MILES!

    Can someone explain the point of the tape measure in this picture? The radius of the seat tube is about 1/2 inch?

    Paired with the photo of the other end of the tube, it allows you to see the actual measurement of the tube length.
    Very useful, compared to the usual 3"shot of a tape held beside the tube, where the tape markings are impossible to read.

    This guy wrote his biography. The worst part is that you have to read through all of it to figure out what he is selling:
    http://toronto.en.craigslist.ca/yrk/bik/1881749634.html

    Interesting facts you will learn:
    How the seller got his first concussion
    What bullet proof vests are made of

    Amazing facts about this bicycle:
    Has the most expensive tires ever made
    Saddle weighs less than an ounce (28 g)
    Frame was bent by hand

    I'm selling my baby because I'm having a baby. My wife and I are expecting our first child in less than a month. In order to finish off the baby's room with the last few pieces of furnishings required. I must sell my most prized possession; my beautiful red rocket and my baby for the last decade. I once had dreams of riding the Tour de France with this baby, HaHa! But life happened, yet the dream still lives in her.

    This is rare, one of a kind, Miele Road Racing Bicycle. This all red motif cycle (nicknamed the red rocket due to the red frame, seat, tires, case, water bottle, and tape) was completely hand made in Italy. It was shipped to Toronto from Italy in the 80's and sold by a Canadian company that dealt in high-end cycles. The company eventually went out of business when the economy took a turn for the worst and they stopped importing and making their bicycles. The cycle had one previous owner before me. It belonged to a neighbour of mine; a very nice Italian man. God rest his soul. He passed away just over a decade ago and left me the bicycle in his will. It was his way to say thanks because one day I came home from College to find his window broken. Upon further investigation I got into an altercation with 2 young men who were there to rob his home. I got my first concussion but foiled their plan and earned the love and respect of this kind old man. Who often told me over long games of chess that life was too short for a man to down the wrong path. To this day I still think he was a Mafioso. He took extremely good care of the bicycle when he owned it. And when the cycle came into my possession I put the same meticulous effort, tender love and care into it as well. It was my way to honour his memory and to say thanks for such a beautiful gift. He often liked to boast that they don’t make bicycles like this anymore and that something this good must be treated with the utmost respect and spared no expense. In his later years he stopped riding the bike but kept it in his home like a member of his family. There are no scratches, and absolutely no rust, not a single spec. She has been wiped down with a cotton cloth every time I have ridden her and has always been stored upside down in my study upstairs. The old man also kept her in his living room next to pictures of his family. She has never been rode in the winter and has been basically been looked after like a Queen by me and like a daughter by the old man. There are very few of these cycles left in the Canadian cycle scene and she is a beauty; a real looker. Anyone who knows anything about bicycles and people in general will really give you looks when you ride by on this at lightning speeds.

    The frame which is handmade and bent is an alloy composite which is very light. You can easily lift her with your pinkie finger. The rims are an aluminum/magnesium mix and are also hand crafted. Both the frame and the rims are handmade in Italy. The tires are high-end, double walled with a red racing stripe down the middle and were handmade in Germany. They are very quick and have excellent traction. They are brand new, replaced only a month ago and have less than 10km ridden on them. You can see easily tell when you look at the tires because the little hairs that are characteristic of all brand new tires are still there and have not been worn away. They are designed to give you 18,200km-29,120km of mileage which is an average of 50-80km/day throughout the riding season. I replace these tires every 2 riding seasons and I have used these tires in previous years and they are absolutely amazing and worth every penny; they are the most expensive money can buy. The aerodynamic racing seat is by Specialized and made of titanium and weights less than an ounce. It's incredibly light and very comfortable when in a racing position on long rides. This is a very high-end seat and is the very best money can buy. As a side note here, I also have the original seat that came with the bicycle which is more designed for casual riding as opposed to racing. It is made of high density foam which is tightly wrapped in black velvet. It takes but a few moments and an Allen key to switch the seats. The front and back tires are both quick release with high-end Shimano BioSpace SIS components. The pedals are custom made and Miele originals. They don't even manufacture this style of pedal anymore. They are far superior to the ones out today which require you to have an extra pair of shoes with you. These ones have a sweet little leather strap which is adjustable and tightens onto your shoe once you slip your shoe into the holster. It feels a lot like riding a horse and it gives you amazing grip on those tight high-speed turns. The tape is brand new, less than a month old. It is a very comfortable and breathable foam composite which wicks sweat away from your hands and is perforated so the sweat evaporates away as you ride. It is red and the ends are chrome finished. The gear levers, the brake leavers and housings, the front and back derailleur’s (sprockets) along with the gear changer and housing are all high-end Shimano BioSpace SIS components. I have added a red painted carbon-fiber housing for the water bottle and a red water bottle; both of which are from Specialized. As another side note I also have the original water bottle housing which is black and made of steel.

    As a bonus I am including a Specialized red racing helmet, which is adjustable and fits all adult sizes. There is a locking mechanism at the back of the helmet that adjusts to your head and then locks in place. I am also including a red water bottle and yes I have already washed the disinfected the water bottle with bleach HAHA! So there are no coodies on it as I am a healthy male, as healthy as a horse. And lastly I am including a very strong 2-piece locking system. The tires are quick release and therefore can be stolen quite easily. To prevent this it is required that you run this Kevlar-cored (the material that makes up the sheets in a bullet-proof vest) cable through the front and back tires and into the center of the frame. Then to lock the looped ends into the U-Lock before locking it through something securely mounted in cement. The helmet, water bottle and the locking system are compliments that come with the cycle. Also as a gesture of good faith I have had the cycle tuned up by a professional less than a month ago. A gentleman who works on the cycles of the Canadian National Cycling Teams; He is the only person who has touched the bike as in terms of tune ups for the past decade. I have never attempted to do any maintenance on it out of fear of messing up this finely tuned of instrument.

    When you come to view the bike, if I sense that you have the wrong intentions or if you even look the slightest bit shady or give me a bad feeling: I WILL NOT SELL YOU MY BABY! and I will introduce you to my two security guard’s Obama & Spock. I want this cycle to go to a good home that is of the utmost importance. I would prefer to sell it to a seasoned cyclist who can add it to his collection or a collector. But I would consider selling it to someone who has a passion for cycling and will give this cycle the good home it deserves. It still has many years of riding left in it if properly cared for.

    I am asking $820 for the package. I am very firm on this price so please don't insult me by negotiating for a lower price or low-balling the price. This is a very rare bike and the vintage value puts this a few hundred dollars above the few hundred dollars I’ve already marked it down from what I'm asking for here. Furthermore, if you go to your local cycle store and compare what you would get for about just over a grand on the stock entry road racing cycles you will quickly see that what you get in this $820 package with all these high-end components will trump anything that you pick up in the entry level and half of the mid level competitors. I've added lots of photos to give you as much detail on the bike as possible and hope they help give you an idea of what you are buying. You are buying a beautifully handcrafted bicycle, with a rich history, which has been lovingly cared for. Good luck, and may you have as much fun with her as the old man and I had with her. Cheers!

    Call me at anytime. If you are unable to reach me please leave me a message with your name and number. I will return your call at my earliest convenience. My name is Jay and my cell number is (647) 237-2536. Thanks for viewing and good luck!

    400$ seems to be today's going rate for UO-8s in Canada... I guess that's people just realized it was the "only one below the px-10"
    I prefer my PSV10 I got for a third of that price

    Nice classic road bike in excellent condition.

    This model is only one below the px-10. All original. Bike is in excellent. Just a few chips on one side of the top tube which I touched up. Bearings are very smooth. All new cables and housing. Simplex components.

    Tuned-up and ready to go.

    Sorry pump not included (very rare and hard to find).

    They did a good job but cripes, that's nearly 3x what I just listed a Huffy for, and I was worried I was out of line. I was almost wondering if I was going to see myself here. And I know my price is high, but I expect bargaining to be taking place.

    If your bike is as nice in person as it appears in the pics, you are probably priced OK. CL Tip: Use bigger pics in your ad. The standard pics don't allow for much detail to show,

    I don't care for Mixtes at all. But damn those bikes look good!
    - Solo Attack: When you attack, let the sprint group lead you out. You take no points. But when they sit up, you put your head down and hold threshold. Remember: When you see Jesus you are still about 2 minutes from blacking out. Hang on.

    Schwinn Old Race Bike Hand Made Chicago 4-1974 RARE - $1400 (Hinsdale )




    RARE old race bike I had as a kid, serial #DK-571214, I took it apart over 40 years ago, sand blasted it and repainted. I do have all the parts, some of which are a little rusty, but there. The wheels, rims are nice and straight. I for get the model, but look close at the frame where the set tube meets the hub, is curve and changes the center of balance and the length of the bike, hub to hub. This is a RARE find, I bought this brand new, from a bike shop in Hinsdale, Illinois $1400.00 if you have any questions, feel free to call me at xxx xxx xxxx Thank You Doug

    Those portland mixtes are fantastic. I just had the realization that they can be done up with other than drop bars and become mega hip town bikes with go fast skinny tires.

    It is a 1974 Sprint. Schwinn didn't make many of these. So, I guess, technically, that makes it rare. But it does not make it valuable. He didn't pay $1400 for it in 1974 and it isn't worth anything near that today.

    Anyone want to patch 58 old tubes. Last year this guy made the mistake of bragging that he had never had a flat.


    58 700x19-26 Presta inner tubes, with holes - $20 (SW Austin)

    These are mostly short-valve inner tubes that I used in my 700x23 and 700x25 road tires. All Presta valves. There are maybe a couple of thin, lightweight ones, and one that might be more of a 26-28mm tube.
    These have been culled for age, broken valves, splits, multiple holes, and patches. No guarantee I caught all the duds in there, or that each and every one will take a patch.
    I just don't have the time and/or inclination to mess with these.
    There are quite a few Continentals, some Specialized, and so forth, so both "high end" and "cheapies" are represented.

    I also have a smaller pile of similar inner tubes that have been patched once, mostly, that can go out the door with these if a buyer wants them.
    924-6632, leave a VM please if for some reason I don't pick up.
