    Don't despair, I may have a brief relationship with this bike.

    BTW we passed thru Bastrop last year on our way to visit friends that live in the Woodlands. We're headed back for another visit...

    A close look at the adjustable cup revealed a single ring about the spindle hole, locknut is smooth, probably not original. After all, this bike has been repainted and rebuilt with a dog's breakfast...

    The crankset is a TA Specialties and I did clean the grime away from the adjustable cup which had TA stamped into it. So we're talking French...or did TA make Italian threaded bottom brackets?

    I...
  4. I have no idea what I bought... Help me out

    hadn't finished my first cup of coffee when I clicked onto my local CL this morning and saw an hour old post for a road bike. Sixty dollars and nineteen miles away. I couldn't resist. :p

    +1 at first read but it is coming from a used bike store as opposed to a yard sale. If it is in ready to ride condition with good tires/tubes then I'd buy it at $200. Also if it was for the wife or...

    Very nice Frejus from the early to mid 60's. Frejus is one marque that has eluded my grasp. Probably because I want one from the same year(s) as yours but in a 62cm frame. Not too many out there. I...

    Okay, I'll soon have some pics of the Crescent up, minus the lumber. Just needed some time to come up with repurposing ideas. I believe, with a bit of modifications I can turn the crating into a...

    Yes it is true. The critical shortage of cardboard has led to the complete ban of bicycle boxes. How do I know, you ask?

    Well, my latest eBay purchase arrived today. Not a single piece of...

    Welcome aboard, Ed. Allegros are beautiful examples of Swiss workmanship, as are Mondia, Tigra, and Condor. This bike is definitely a Mondia as Allegros from the 60's have their serial number stamped...

    Congratulations, you have a Herculean task in front of you. Do you have to relocate them?

    More pictures are necessary. I'll take any bike that has the name Cinelli on it. ;)

    No, Bianchigirl. Those bikes were used by people fleeing Detroit. Once they got beyond the city limits they abandoned them.

    Serial number is W98 which makes it a 1965. It may have been repainted in the early 70s. I've only seen the same pics as everyone else. RD and brakes are not original. I'll post pics after I receive...
