Looking For a Classic City Bike

Hi There,

I need your help. I'm looking for a comfortable city bike to add to my "stable" alongside my road bikes. Something with a more upright position, and no drop bars. I'm trying to do some searching on my local craigslist ads, and ebay, but I'm unsure of what search terms to enter. I'm thinking something like Rivendell's "Yves Gomez":

... which is a take on a classic city bike, only way out of my price range for right now. Any ideas on what to look for? I know Bridgestone had the xo series, which I've been on the look out for, without any luck. Any other classic, lugged steel city bikes you can point me toward?

Thanks a bunch!

Ryan
