  1. wd-40 as a clean good weather chain lube?

    I use it. Been using it for years. I wipe my whole bike down with it. Most of my bikes are 40 plus years old. Maybe works better on old bikes.

    1987 Trek 560 Pro Series

    Looks good. Fair price. Usually when I look at a bike I check the frame for any damage, particularly the headlug area. Wiggle the cranks to make sure they aren't loose. Spin the wheels and check for...
  3. Help with the value of my 1986-1987 Bianchi Trofeo

    Somewhere in the $300 range.
  4. weird new custom/duty charges from USA ebay.....but what about all those shiny parts?

    The border is lined with "receiving" places just for this purpose. I've sent items to these remote border towns and then my Canadian customers cross the border, pick up their goods and go back home....

    Every now and then I see a 56 tooth chainring on ebay. Gotta get one and use with my 13-19 freewheel.

    72 Schwinn Tandem

    I had one for 25 years. Sold it last summer. Sold for $200. It was in average condition. Maybe its a regional thing but they seem popular around the Chicago area. Usually listed on CL from $200-300....
  9. Windsor International, claims she is late 1970's?

    Not a bad deal. Looks to be in nice condition.

    Steel rimmed wheels which aren't the best, but perfectly rideable.

  12. 1970 Raleigh Gran Sport -- history and rarity?

    Fairly rare bike. They show up now and then on ebay. I remember seeing one at a bike shop when I was a kid. It really stood out with all the chrome and hefty price tag, $160 maybe. In 1970 probably...
  13. They should make some large bikes like this!

    Looks painful. Youth and living on the bike helps with that I suppose. Looks ridiculous with that much seatpost showing.

    Essentially, yes. It's an ashtabula crank and were common on one speed schwinn's and the like. I refurbished a Pixie for my daughter that has one.

    Looks like a Gran Sport to me(says so on the top tube). Not too many of those around. Nice Zeus crank, AVA stem. Very, very nice.

    Has the nice Huret long cage derailleur and shifters too.

    Not really sure what you are after, but that would be considered more of a high end racing bike. Nothing low end or cheap about it. I don't put much emphasis on tubing. Just looking at the frame...

    I think you're looking at $300-350 for a bike like that. You could part it out for more than $500 though. Looks really nice. $100? Because its older it has no value? Columbus Aelle tubing is good...

    People love the color combination on these Motobecanes. Is it a Grand Touring? I have seen just frames without wheels or parts on it sell for $150. If I were to list it for sale I would start at...

    Interesting. I have had several mixtes that I thought were just outstanding examples. Peugeot, Motobecane, Bottecchia - and if I can get $125 for them I'm doing well. It takes a lot of educating your...
