    "Girls" team fuji on Maine CL looks like 1985 in 52cm. If closer I would go pick it up, BO so bet 100 or less takes it home. Upside down fuzzy garage queen.

    Looks like a 25.5in frame, best to be 6'2 and taller. Casually looks like parts have been swapped out, the 210 would have had triple crank, weinman center pulls, etc. They are great sleeper bikes for...

    Nice looking bike, would love to see some more pictures. Those brake levers date mid 80s and earlier but see them on 80s tourers before fwiw. Those lugs look great, bb reminds me of my fuso which use...

    Check out "Hell on Two Wheels", duct taping your neck/head so it will not flop is about as hardcore as you will find in multi mile punishment riding.

    Family members lives in Key West, when it hits the 60s they bust out the fleece and moan about no heating systems.

    Definitely a 60cm vs 57. I think that bike looks great but am biased towards miyatas. I would pay 400-500 for an inspected/approved keeper with perhaps some haggle over fender set and racks.

    At one point Toronto was one of the most bubbly markets around for high prices so maybe 150+-?. Having said that around here that xl earlier model miyata frame might go for 80+- tops, and like wrk101...

    I do not have any grails but ride all the schooners like crazy, preferably full of cheap american lager all the while. Guess the FR1 has a nice pedigree and it does ride like no other bike I have...

    Put some skis on that and go to town! Been getting in quite a bit of beater xc action this month here, but really need another good 12+ storm.

    Nice deal --offered locally sub 200 w/out ship? Just curious as I have a couple of nice 531 treks (but not 760 grade) that failed to sell sub 200 in the fall which really surprised me, will see what...

    Not terribly overpriced but time of year and overall soft market I would say 400, up to 500 for keeper depending on how it checks out. I find the triple/long cage is an interesting setup.

    As long as one does not drink a sixer of yellowbellies while trying every trick in the book to unstick, then one is fine. Alcohol will of course bring out semi stupid solutions, like the cold chisel....

    Heron Tourer here in Maine CL-- price is steep at 1500 though does have nice touring setup.

    2x 615 for 300 and no 2.5 hour drive? No brainer, miyata for sure. I would not bother with that picutred setup as it would require threadless fork, etc which adds up. But I would put bar ends on one,...

    Miyata is my bet. No need to spend much at all if current parts are good. Maybe some bar end shifters, maybe new stem, saddle, etc. Cannondales have a definitive following but I find their ride to be...

    Looks minor to me but I am pretty easy to please if it fits and is a nice bike. Similar bb rust on a team fuji that bronze wooled off and then clear coated with nail polish, that was 4 years ago and...

    500-700 is average if frame is in good shape. One has been sitting on CL here w/in 2 hour drive at 475 though with no action. Real cult following for the expedition which seems to bump its value...

    Steel treks have always been some of the nicer and easiest to flip projects for the average rider/hobbyist. Having said that the prices seem to have dropped, I see examples of very good 531 treks...

    I had a lowly Lotus express atb 1987 vintage and it was made in Japan. You can see pics including Japanese decal in this link. Cherokee was a much better model/parts.

    You can probably make it work but your size is pushing a 58cm frame for long rides and comfort. May have to experiment with extended stem or seatpost if it feel too cramped. Do you have any other...
