    I've had this exact thing happen to me. 3-4 years ago I sold a Gibson Les Paul Studio to someone in France. Buyer claimed he never received it and that someone else signed for it. He filed an item...

    Again, this is where understanding ebay's policy becomes important. Most sellers get scammed because they are ignorant of how ebay works.

    There is no such thing as an "as-is" or "no refund" sale...

    I sell quite a bit on ebay. In general, to cut down on scammers you should stick to buy it now and make offer transactions. The auctions really do act as poo to flies.

    you have a lot better options at that price point.

    Fuji is another great example. The later Team Fuji and Opus III models are fantastic bikes. but they just don't command that premium.

    Do you have a vernier caliper or a tape measurer on hand? What is the fork's spacing?

    modern front forks are spaced at 100mm while many vintage ones were at 96mm. Not sure what those old Schwinns...

    Nice job. Though, you need to level out that saddle and maybe drop the seat post just a bit.

    Good idea to keep the original components. Superbe and cyclone II stuff were great quality stuff.

    i dont know what aelle is supposed to be, but get a caliper and properly measure the seatpost diameter.

    Metacortex Scooper would know best.

    '72 world traveler seems like a good guess, no? That RD would have been added later.

    fair enough. i still think if you're going to do any cold setting like that, the fork should be removed from the frame and put into some sort of make shift jig etc.

    ive had to cold set two forks...

    Not all Bottechias are made equal. Cromor was lower end in Colombus' line. Anyone know what campy components those are?
