Heck of a deal...
** Classic 1976 Nishiki International - One Owner - $80 (Golden, CO)
Champagne color. I've owned this baby since new. Just got a new Trek and need to clean out the stable after all these years. Everything is original except for tires, tubes, pedals and brake pads. It's been lightly ridden and has relatively few scratches. She cleans up reeeel gooood. Come take it for a ride. You will not be disappointed.

Contact me if you would like me to take more detailed pictures for you.

Call me at (720)929-0503 if you've got questions. DON'T WAIT - it won't be here forever ...

Peter

First time poster here...

Been thinking about building up a SS to commute to school. What do you guys think of this? I haven't bid yet but am strongly considering it. Thanks in advance!

http://cgi.ebay.com/1970s-Gitane-Pro...d=p3911.c0.m14

The seller also has an "early 80's Lotus frame" as well. Any advice is greatly appreciated!

It's French, so replacement parts can be problematic, but since he has the parts, I wouldn't worry about that too much. I would at least buy the cranks from him (but ask the seller if one chainring can be removed for your ss conversion). And get the brake calipers. With the Mafac centerpull brakes, you should be able to easily accommodate 700c wheels. I've done this many times with Mafacs on Peugeots.

Oh yeah, and I would post this question on the ss/fixie forum. You should get lots of pointers on how to proceed with a conversion.

I can tell you the Lotus frame is no good—vertical dropouts.

To say nothing of the crunched seat tube.

Wonder if the seat tube could be reamed with a very long seat post (or one attached to a rod)?

Btw, aren't vertical dropouts ok for SS, but definitely bad for fixed gear.

They're ok in the sense that you can install a chain tensioner and be ok, but it's a less than elegant solution.

Good candidate I think. The Gitane TdF was the lightest production frame of its day (lighter than the PX-10 even, by a few grams). You'll end up with something very quick and agile yet able to take some pounding on city streets. Also no braze-ons and bosses make for a "harmless" conversion.

Lady's Schwinn Paramount (Pensacola)

Highly modified, late 60's or early 70's Paramount. Small lady's frame, upright steel handlebars and stem, Brooks "mattress" leather saddle, rubber pedals, plastic fenders. Wide range gearing with Huret rear shifter, unknown front. 15 speed with "granny gear" chain ring. Rubber hand grips with Suntour bar end shifters. Front center-pull, rear side pull brakes. Pletcher (sp?) rack. Reynolds 531 frame, lightly pitted chrome stay ends and head tube lugs. Will post pictures and more info in days to come; will answer questions as quickly as possible. Very good condition, still used regularly, but the owner has hit 80 and is getting dizzy spells - time to pass it on.

Reply to: sale-quvme-1356529090@craigslist.org [Errors when replying to ads?]

For sale is a 62cm Centurion Super Sport 10-speed road bike with a mix of Campagnolo and suntour components.

62cm Chromoly frame and fork,with campagnolo front and rear drop outs
Campagnolo record headset, bottom bracket, crankset, friction shift levers, pedals, brake levers, and side-pull rear caliper
Weinmann side-pull front caliper
Suntour front and rear derailleur set
Sunshine hubs
3ttt stem and Cinelli italian drop bars

It has normal wear and tear to the paint, but not in bad shape with no dings, dents, cracks, or bends. Very light for its era at almost exactly 20 lbs with kickstand (can easily be removed). Light and agile bike for that tall rider. Check out higher quality pictures and my other items for sale at http://bikebuilds.blogspot.com and thanks for looking!
