    Gotta let it go.

    There will be others on eBay willing to part with what you're willing to buy, at whatever price you're willing to pay.

    If this particular seller is playing the "oh, cousin...

    Whether it's worth it really depends on the bike, the tubing it's made from, the bike's cachet, your sentimentality over aforementioned cachet and your willingness / ability to fork over money to a...

    I have one bike with that derailleur - the Tommasini - and it uses nine-speed Dura-Ace SL-BS77 bar-end shifters. My other dura-ace bike (RADAC) has the RD-7401 derailleur, same shifters - same...

    Seat stays are badly bent. The fork is also bent, and there may be a bend in the top tube - which would explain why the headset is binding. The bike appears to have front impact damage - which is...

    Seems like this bike is going to be a rider, if anything. The lugwork is quite good but I'm not that inclined to throw tons of cash at the bike the way I would for, say, a PY-10.

    How this will probably end up:

    - frame dents will be filled, probably with JB Weld
    - 27" fork will be the Fuji. I might be able to make it look better by detailing the lug work
    - 27" wheels and...

    Some things I should mention:

    Fleet Valley is usually pretty reasonable about repair costs.

    The bike won't be getting Imron and multiple clear coats. The finish might go on with a spray ***,...

    There are quite a few forks to be had in 27" on eBay. Most would require cutting the steerer tube after extending the threads. I have quite a few tools here, but a 1" x 24tpi die isn't one of them....

    I like the fact that it's English and that it has Carlton's...

    Those are keepers.

    I have a set on the Tommasini. They've stood up pretty well to the pounding they get here in PA. I am cheating a bit - the Continentals mounted right now are 25mm carcass...

    The best of the non-suspension era came out in the late 80s. These consistently hold value, for good reason: (They were great bikes)

    Selle San Marco Rolls Ti
    Selle Italia Turbo
    Selle Italia Flite Ti
    Avocet Racing 1
    Brooks B17N
    Brooks Swallow
    Ideale 90

    The last three should have the most "vintage" appearance.

    Appears to be a red boa constrictor. We had one living in our dorm when I was at University. The owner used to have us in for the feedings, which were done with live mice, gerbils, etc. We'd make...

    Assuming it's a '76, it'd make sense for there to be a mixture of parts. Said so right in the catalog.

    Nice bike. Given that it's a Bridgestone of early '80s vintage, the frame tubes are probably straight-gauge 4130 - perhaps made by Ishiwata. Should ride pretty nicely - though I get rid of that...

    You end up getting a -1 or a Zip?

    I've a 1990 MB-1 myself, and it works well. It was built on machine in Japan, with silver brazing and lugs - and despite the Logic Prestige tubing it is still...
