I'm looking for a 21"-24" lugged steel mountain bike or frame.

There are pics here.
Well if you don't find what your looking for, let me know. I have a 21" 1995 +/- Trek 930 Mt Bike Frame and most of the stuff to put her back together. True Temper chromoly, triple-butted

well I will get in on this game. I have a 1972-73 Peugeot pl-8 that is a tad too big for me (I like to think I'm 5'6" but it is more like 5'3") 57 cm frame.... altenburger synchron brakes (eek!) but it does have the rigida serrated chrome steel rims. a few of the decals need work, no dents, and the paint is in good shape. I have all the original parts including the lights, generator, and the seat (has seen better times) Just looking for something classic (it doesn't even have to be French!) in the 48-52 cm range. . Almost forgot it is French threaded and I haven't been able to budge the cotter pins to save my life.

Lugged 531P Reynolds tubing. The paint is rich purple and in outstanding condition, fork ends are chrome. The frame was pretty much a top-of-the-line crit geometry frame when it was made. My Bob Jackson, and Raleigh Team Pro make this effectively redundant in my stable. Would be willing to include the current (I believe original) Stronglight, A-9 needle bearing headset for the right exchange.

I'd be looking for something with at least butted tubing, in 55 - 58 cm size range. Would prefer sport touring, or touring geometry. Willing to consider older frame that's sound, and not in great finish, so don't be shy about proposing a trade.


I love the way this bike looks Zorro. I can't send pm's, too new, but would you be willing to trade for my pl-8 posted above?

C = hi tensile steel.

I suggest three grades of paint:
A = excellent and original
B = okay (does not need repaint)
C = terrible (needs repaint)

If you're getting rid of a frame that requires unusual parts, non-English BB and headset, unusual sized FD or whatever, I suggest you include it if you can.

Other information required: dropouts, eyelets, other brazed on fittings. Damage should be clearly stated.

What else, guys? As I said before, this thread is probably just a trial balloon. What rules would you like to see? Under what terms would you, or would you not, play this game?

Your bike is my size, and looks kind of cool, but my problem is that I have already obtained a frame that's all I was hoping to find, and then some. What I'm really in need of now is some more modern parts for the new build. What you see on this Trek is going to migrate to the Team Pro, and I will be looking for a 9-speed crankset and derailleurs to achieve 2 x 9 geared randonneuring awesomeness (I have the shifters, wheels, gears, stem, bars, etc.

I'd be willing to trade the frame for a roughly equivalent value worth of parts that I could use on the new project. I thought I had indicated this on the spreadsheet, but possibly something happened. My apologies if my update did not properly apply.

I sent a PM to THEJAPINO, because he has a frame listed in the spreadsheet, and I'm interested in it. He hasn't responded. Anyone know how to get in touch with him/her?

If it's the 52cm frame he has listed, he and I are working on a trade right now.

Ah, OK. Good luck, and if it works out, let us know about it and see it.

If it doesn't work out, please let me know.

Southboston,
I uploaded some pictures. The bike is a blue Grand Record. It is 57cm c-c and c-t, it has a stronglight headset, no dents in the frame and the fork is straight. I cannot find a name on the BB but it is most likely a stronglight also. I do not have enough posts to send you a private message. If you want to send me a private message with your email we can work that way.
I am never happy with the pictures I take so if you want more let me know

Let me know
Steve

Schwinn Le Tour about an '89 I think.

57cm

True temper frame, nice paint with shine but areas of scratches from storage.

May let it go for a trade with 54cm.

Anyone interested in a barn fresh 25" circa 81 (I think) Trek 710? Whole bike or frameset.

- screw on brass headbadge
- "TREK" on seatstay end caps
- color bar style seat tube logo.
- blue color
- 531db

with

- Shimano oil hole style hubs laced to Mavic GR-2 rims
- Suntour Cyclone FD
- Suntour Vx RD
- (looks like) Shimano 600 EX headset
- nice Campy non aero brake levers with really nice hoods
- SR seat post stem and possibly bar
- Sugino? crank

Looks a lot like this one: http://vintage-trek.com/Trek_galleryMI.htm

Contact me for details.

I'd like to trade it for a comparably made road or touring frame in 56 or 57 cm size; Horizontal forged dropouts with eyelets are a must!
Elcraft,

I have an unknown french frame (I think it is a Lejune) it is 57. I believe it to be reynolds 531. It is a 56/57. Here is a pic.

[IMG][/IMG]

I am interested in the 60cm frame. Any pics?

mpoltkin, I can't PM you, but do you have pics of the Super Tourer? Is it green?
My friend has one in nearly mint condition and I'd love to see more pics of one in the flesh.
I'm afraid she'd be very unwilling to give hers up for anything...especially a 24.5".
