    What do you mean "How did I do?".? Do you want to keep it, flip it? How you did depends on the answer. If you intend to ride it, you did good. Otherwise, so-so.

    My '89 Miyata 312 is one of my favorite riders. It is a fixed gear, no flip/flop hub and was used by a road racer for training. It is super stable and comparatively light. You will enjoy that one!

    I'll take a crack at this one. First, the frame is very well built and the ride characteristics are super. Paint is decent, not great. Waterford's work speaks for itself and the True Temper tubing...

    +1 on the chrome possibly being unpolished. Polishing would have been a waste of time if painted over and also detrimental to adhesion. However, that's not to say it couldn't be taken to a chrome...

    That bike looks like it has race-oriented geometry. Not a good or bad thing depending upon how you like to ride. At 6'1", that bike appears that it would fit you.

    As a resident of St. Louis and avid CL watcher, $200.00 is likely max for this bike. Large size limits audience as stated above. If you can wait until spring, you will do better.

    There are times I dislike emoticons and this is one of them.

    Ebay is your best bet. Look for completed listings as suggested above. Since it is not 100% original, part it out or not as you see...

    I prefer to do my own cleaning because most sellers don't have a clue and can do more damage than good. Like the time a seller saw my height and said, "We'll have to raise this." He grabbed the...

    You'll need to post photos. Also list size. Close-ups of major components helps.

    There are also several threads discussing the gold plated Lambert. Search for info.

    I have a Salsa stem that I really like, so if that one fits, I'd keep it and change seat post to black. Goes with the rest of the group, unless you opt for silver components.

    That is perhaps the most beautiful equipment I have ever seen. Looks like a pair of copper flutes or such. I'd love to taste some of the product if it is as good as the vessel it comes from!
