THESE ARE BOTH GONE - THANKS!

Hello, new here; hopefully I'm doing this right. I have the bikes/frames below:



Early 80's Raleigh Super Record. BIG bike; 67cm center to center. Complete with almost original Raleigh/Suntour components. Would need very little if anything to be a reliable rider.



Late 1970s Japanese Schwinn frame (1977 Volare, I think?). 63cm top to center. Clean shape. Frame with Dura-Ace headset only; will probably be keeping the crank and bb.

I would like to trade either for similar quality framesets or complete bikes somewhere between 50cm-58cm (looking for one for my wife and myself, hence the wide size range). I love both of these bikes, but they're too large for me to swing a leg over, much less ride. I'd trade two for one if it was just what I'm looking for. Located in SE Missouri area, but I'm not afraid to ship them. More pics are available upon request.

Anyone in Japan?

I have a 51 cm c-c Trek 560 frame in Reynolds 501. The frame was chased, faced and DO's aligned by a local frame-maker when I did a build on it. All original purple paint and yellow decals with some patina, but touched up and clear coated with acrylic. Looking for similar value in 56 c-c. Lots of pics if interested.

I'm in Sendai.

Serotta nova special

Circa mid 1980's frame and fork offered for trade. Mavic GP4 tubular and Shimano 600 wheelset available too. Hand built in the Saratoga Springs, NY vicinity. Columbus SP from my reading of the brochure.

No MTB's please, I have more than I need of rigid Treks, Stumpjumpers, and Miyatas. Looking for a frame in 57-58cm, ideally a Paramount Waterford or Bianchi frame that doesn't need refinishing.

ST = 24.5" 62cm c-c
TT = 23.5" 60cm c-c
SOH = 34.5" 88cm

Photos and brochure (1985)

Have 57cm CTC (58 cm CTT) Chesini Arena Frame and fork. It has been resprayed black. Columbus SL tubing. Panographing on seattubes, headtube, brake bridge. Cutout BB shell. Fork is an older kenesis with carbon blades and aluminum crown/ends. Looking for something similar in a 55cm CTC frame. I personally stripped this down and repainted it so I can assure you it did not have any dents or bad rust. I have pics of the frame primed in the album as well. I would like to keep the headset and seatpost and could also do just a frame trade and keep the fork.

I could also be interested in a trade for a quality frame around a 51cm.

gitane super corsa

GONE TO NEW HOME

Until now, I've mostly just traded small easily shippable bits on here, but thought I'd try to find a new home for this frame.

60cm Gitane Super Corsa frameset (1982-84 best I can tell) with Stronglight Competition bottom bracket as installed. Super Vitus 980, chrome fork, internal cable routing. Would be a super light rider. I do have a couple other Spidel/Simplex bits from it I might consider parting with if someone is looking for a specific rebuild. I'm happy to send other pics and details if anyone is interested.

I'd consider a variety of frame trades in the 58cm size. I'm a sucker for anything unusual or touring frames or just interesting graphics.

Nothing special, but maybe someone needs one: a 1977 Nishiki International frame, 19 1/2 c-c. Hi-ten tubing. Paint sound but many scrapes and scratches. Chrome on fork is excellent. Original headset and BB included--no apparent problems with either although they obviously need to be repacked. Would trade for a similar 25"/63 cm frame. Maybe an old UO-8? PM me with a regular email address and I'll send photos--I can't attach photos to a PM for some reason.

Anyone willing to trade Cannondale frames? I've concluded that this one is too small for me. Hoping for similar condition in a 60cm or thereabouts. I believe this one is a 56-57ish. Open to other colors. Grey, darker blue, etc. Show me what you have. I can take more detailed pictures this evening. If I remember correctly this is an ST400, and has rack mounts(front and rear) fender mounts, as well as 3 bottle cage mounts. Hoping for something similarly equipped, but if yours has canti brakes I will even kick in some more if you'd like?,,,,BD

Has a couple of scratches, but no dents. Overall looks stunning in person.



Kickstand has been removed. You can tell one was installed but just barely. It was installed correctly, with no crushing force, etc.

Have:

54cm (21") 1983 Trek 620 frame and fork, fair condition, w/ SR Laprade post.

Looking for:

50cm (19") Cro-Mo frame/ fork with horizontal dropouts, 531 or comparable. English threading, 68mm BB.

Preference for Japanese or USA production frame/ fork, same vintage/ equal to the 620, but geometry is not an issue.

Any takers?

This 60 Trek fits OK I just don't care for it. The paint is rough, as I got it, but I was able to cobble on a pair of shifter bosses. It isn't the prettiest thing around but I am not expecting much in return.

I am looking to trade for anything in ChroMo with decent dropouts ina 58 or 59. Most any gauge Tange or maybe one of those fancy Peugeot 501 frames, even a Valite. I am considering swapping the Nexus from the MAX frame it is currently on to something else. I'll try and get some better pics up when I get back for the Dr.

BD I don't have anything your size to trade, but if you end up parting out or this opens up into a multiple-way trade, that frame looks pretty good to me. What I have is not at that level, but I'm willing to throw in extras. My too-small frame is a 1987 Miyata 312, about 54cm.

I have a 1982 Schwinn Traveler Frame and fork up for grabs. Technically, I have the entire bicycle, but am mainly looking for a smaller frame to work with. I would trade frames and forks, or entire bicycles I guess.

Head badge # is 1562.

No dents or bends in frame or fork.

It is the largest model Traveler, with the top tube measuring 27".

Minor nicks in paint, overall in decent shape Id say.

I have one pic of it right now, but can take more detailed photos if anyone becomes interested and requests them.

Almost any medium sized frame would work for trade.

I can be emailed at solidovibora@gmail.com. Which may in fact be the best way to reach me.

Just tossing this out there... I've recently acquired a 1981 Trek 616 (610 frame I believe) that's too big for me. I'll probably end up selling it but I could be convinced to keep it if I found the right size frame.

This frame is 52cm center-center. Reynolds 531 main tubes. Decent condition, some scratches and a little surface rust but overall looks quite nice.

I'm looking for something very small, a 48cm frame that builds up to 29.5" standover or under. Doesn't have to be a Trek but I'd prefer something similar in age/quality, ideally Reynolds tubing. If you have small, let me know!

I keep coming back to look at this frame, and keep wondering if I have anything worth trading for this fine looking frame? Do you still have it, and if so would a mountain bike frame that can be converted to touring duty work? I also have the Cannondale frame, though I'd love to have another C'dale to replace it.,,,,BD

I've got a Peugeot psv 10 made from super vitus 980 in ~54 that I may trade for something of the touring variety. Or a super commuter. Racks and fenders a must.

Do you still have this? I have a Schwinn Paramount 564 aluminum frame in 23". It's either an '88 or '89. Paint is black. Let me know if you're interested.

I am open to a multi trade at this point? As long as it's a touring frame of some merit, or a decent sport touring frame in the 59-60 range. I guess I am cursed to not have a C'dale frame in my size unless it's a mountain bike and I'm okay with that. It's a nice ride, but I have more post showing than I'd like, and running a Technomic to get the hand elevation out of numb territory.

Will trade for any decent touring frame, or maybe a large lugged mtb frame, 23-24 inch size. I will be keeping the racks though, naturally. This was a quick "it's getting dark" install. The camera battery was also failing, so no chance for a retake.,,,,BD

Have this Motobecane Grand Record. ~60 cm ST (c-c) and ~58.4 TT (c-c). May consider something similar in a 62 cm, like Raleigh International, Legnano, Frejus, etc. Thanks!

Do you like Cannondale touring bikes by chance? I would trade the whole bike for what is in your pics. I will even check what other bikes I might have that are in your size. That is a beautiful frame!,BD
