    It doesn't look trashed to me. You will have to do work on it, but that is the fun of it. I would buy it for $75 if it fit me. You might even be able to get it for less. Heck offer him $150 and...

    They look like the standard Campy NR pedals from the 70's. Plenty of comparable auctions out there. They aren't in the greatest condition so I would expect around $50.

    That is the German Hercules and not the British Hercules. German bikes are good around the town bikes. I like their quality better than the British 3 speeds.

    Dang man, why spend all that effort in upgrading a bike and not riding it? I know it looks nice, but trying to get non-believer to understand that Arabesque/Brooks/upgrades justifies your asking...

    I think it is comical that the seller states: "no oil leaks". He must not have ever had one of these.

    I removed one by disassembling the freewheel and removing the body. That gave me enough space to lace some spokes in the drive side and non-drive side into an old rim. I was then able to remove the...

    Heck yeah, people still want those. Are you sure it is a ST600 as I thought those had canti's. I know the ST400's had caliper brakes. I recently sold a much larger ST400 and in far worse condition...

    No, those are my commuter add on's.

    Someone tossed a Proteus frame/fork (531), Campy crank/pedals/BB/headset/seatpost. Seatpost was horribly stuck. I suspect that was why it was tossed as the...

    Mid 70's Proteus dumpster find set up as fixed gear commuter until I figure out what to do with it.

    I wouldn't do a thing to the paint or existing decals. Just ride it and enjoy it for what it is. You will spend more on the decals than what it is worth and you won't enjoy it anymore.

    $100 is a little high for a Huffy, but if it has been fully tuned up, has new tires, shifts well, and fits, it isn't a terrible deal either.

    I think he would have a hard time moving it for $100. ...

    This type of scammer is never going to meet you anywhere. They are not going to actually show up anywhere, nor will anyone ever stop by to pick up your bike. Do you really think a Nigerian wants a...

    I have started including a text number. Works well for the usual college kids I sell to.

    However, I started getting texts asking me to email them. Once emailed, I get the usual shipping...

    I would ride the Sports in your neighborhood to find out if you even like these. If you like it, buy it.

    Who cares about a little rust? It takes a lot of rust to bring one these down.

    I think you could get $400+ for that in the U.S.

    It is a Grand Jubile. Suntour dropouts and components give it away. 3 tubes 531. Silver front fork. From what I see, parts look stock except bars/levers which are easily swapped out.

    Vintage Normandy hubs aren't worth much. They were on practically every bike boom bike. I doubt it would be worth your effort to cut all the spokes, shine up the hubs and overhaul them. You might...

    I think you paid about FMV for it for the condition it is in. I would have bought it for $50 as well.

    I think you are too honest in your add. It makes it sound like there is a lot of stuff wrong with it when it is just standard stuff that it needs. I market the positives not the negatives. If I...

    this is a symptom of too much Proofide. Brooks recommends only a small amount. You are going to be stuck with stains until it wears off. Get a cover and ride with it.

    I fixed up a chrome Mongoose in similar conditition. I got rid of the decals and never looked back. To me the cool part of your bike is that it is all chrome, not that it is a Diamondback.
