    If bikes like this in this kind of shape sold for even $1,000 I'd be bringing containers full of them home from Europe every time I go visit family/friends.
    As it is, rusty old 20s/30s town bikes languish for months on the local classified ads over there even if they're asking price is less than 100.
    Judging by the plunger brake and the Torpedo coaster hub, it's prob early 30s... Personally, don't know mush about the brand, but it sure looks an awful lot like BSAs, Automotos & Bianchis of the same era. You see them in the backs of gardens, tossed in the woods and abandoned on the streets.

    I just love to gripe about people who equate old with valuable. (like people who think their late 60s Gibson flattop is worth any more than $2K).
    IMNSHO, the seller is decimally challenged and even $350 would still be an unrealistic premium.

    I have a friend who just got $1K for a good, rideable example of a prewar ladies Raleigh Popular - but it took years for it to sell and accepted a few hundy less than what he was asking.

    Optimist of the month:

    1985 Schwinn Cimarron Mountain Bicycle - $1550 (San Clemente)



    Details

    ONLINE MSRP: $3,499.00

    You are buying a vintage used Schwinn Cimarron mountain bike. We feel Schwinn says it best from their 1985 catalog; "New for 1985, the Cimarron is designed from the ground up for the serious off road rider. Top-of-the-line componentry specifically designed for all terrain riding is combined with a lightweight frame and fork that will absorb plenty of shock yet provide many years of back country riding enjoyment and comfort. The frame & fork are made entirely of 4130 chrome-moly tubing. The top and down tubes are ovaled and flared at the head tube end to increase the brazing surface at the most critical join. The entire main frame is double-butted tubing. The full chrome-moly Tange "Unicrown" fork rounds out the frameset. The shifting system consists of top-of-the-line Shimano light alloy Deore XT and "Superplate" XT rear derailleur and human engineered 18-speed XT shift levers and brake levers. Sealed components help protect your bicycle from the rugged elements of nature, with the SHimano light alloy 600EX headset, Shimano Deore XT "sealed mechanism" hubs, Shimano 600 EX bottom bracket assembly and Shimano XT front and rear derailleurs with sealed bracket and pulley body springs." The forest green paint job on this bike is still in great shape with some very minor surface corrosion. Please feel free to email for additional photos.

    One of the worst custom jobs I have ever seen. One should not spend more than $10 on Huffy much less $300+.

    Here's another one the owner actually believes $399 is a move it fast price for this bike.
    Great fixed gear. 58cm Old Raleigh Grand Prix, Rebuilt. Great Parts. - $399 (Capital Hill)



    First come first serve, price is so low so I can sell it fast. This build cost WAY more than 400.

    frame- blue 1969 raleigh grand prix frame with chrome fork ends. has ornate lugwork.
    wheels- weinman dp18's
    campagnolo crankset
    new bottom bracket to be compatable with the campy crankset. Can't remember the brand, but it was expensive.
    oddyssey twisted platform pedals with holdfast handmade straps. I will knock off 50 bucks to keep these.
    white front brake with lever.
    Nice light steel drop bars with new tape
    the headset was reconditioned by a professional mechanic when I had the bike rebuilt.
    bontrager saddle.

    this build has about 100 miles on it and ALOT more than 400 put into it.

    ALso, I will include a 29er for an extra 250 bucks if you buy the raleigh. Not for sale individually. I just got it at a garage sale this weekend and know nothing about it. Front suspension, no rear suspension, gold aluminum frame with no brand sticker but a T on the head tube badge. Had the parts stripped to become a single speed but needs freewheel and chain and the rear and maybe front wheel need to be trued. Headset and bottom bracket feel smooth.

    Too many to list. Raleigh carbon racer (17 lbs.) and fast to a '37 Columbia (17 lbs. wheels alone) Even an Aerocycle (not ridable yet), love the middleweights too.

    Up for sale is this vintage "steamin' pile". It must be worth a fortune because of it's rarity, and modifications by famed artist. Joe Mamma. $325 or best- cash only, no trades

    Unbelievable. This bike has been for sale for at least a year. I wonder if the LBS who tuned it up recommended changing out that stupid Raleigh chopper seat?

    http://boston.craigslist.org/gbs/bik/3980331628.html

    Vintage Panasonic Hybrid - $150 (Somerville)

    Vintage panasonic for sale. Just got a tuneup at the lbs. New cables, chain, and everything, tightend, lubed, greased, etc. This bike would be perfect for someone between 5'4" and 5'10". I am a bit taller than that and as such this bike does not fit me perfectly. Otherwise, I would use it to cruise around town with a passenger in tow. Of course there is no weight limit so you will have to be reasonable about who you choose to ride around with. I think it's a 56 cm frame. The frame is in excellent shape. It shifts and brakes perfect and the tires are pretty good too! Please respond with a phone number and when you are able to check it out. If this ad is up its still available.

    If this guy worked in bike shops for over 13 years, then I am never taking my bike to another shop. There is just so much wrong with this bike, I don't even know where to start.

    Yes this one does have a lot wrong with it.
    http://boston.craigslist.org/sob/bik/4011875074.htm
    First thing on a classic vintage bike resotred and rebuilt with random parts are not the same thing. Just real quick I can spot the cabling is awfull. The low end black tripple crank with junk pedals just looks silly on a bike this nice. The repaint is pretty shaby. Mismatched soso wheels that don't really go with the bike. Probably a good rider but just because a bike rides nice and all the parts somewhat fit together, this does nor make it a nice rebuild much less a resoration. When one refers to a classic as resored that should me it is put back into excellent original condition so with reason it isn't siginificantly defirent than when it rolled out of a shop originally.

    Schwinn actually stoped using top shifters in the late 60's for this very reason after numerous complaints and a couple of law suits. Actually going sitting reaching back this much to shift caused many riders to loose balance come of the seat and you can quess what happens. Top shifters did not earn the nick name nut busters for nothing.

    So, ~700 in parts for a ladies schwinn traveler frame + 500 in labor costs?! I've never had someone build up a bike for me, but surely it wouldn't cost that much, right?

    Yeah, I think zukahn's link is missing the "l" at the end. Anyway, the workmanship is horrible throughout. The bar wrap is worn, nevermind horribly done. The brake levers are cocked. The cabling is horrible, trim that rear brake cable please. The front derailleur is a mountain derailleur which doesn't shift well with road shifter levers, nevermind that it's mounted about an inch too high. How about the rear skewer needing to be trimmed? Oh yeah, the front skewer should be reversed. Is that a stem/bars/levers from an old French bike? Wouldn't be surprised if it's 22.0mm and not 22.2mm. If there's this much wrong just at first glance, I shudder to think of what other issues it has. I just hope nobody falls for his B.S. sales pitch and overpays for an inferior bike.

    Normally we'd just laugh at the audacity of asking $400 for a cigarette promotional freebie. Lung cancer and heart disease not included. But in this case the seller in question doubles the price in 24 hours, and then proceeds to forget to delete the original listing.
