Vintage Carabela Tange Champion #2?

I have interest in this bike, it seems to be a rare find. Does any one have thoughts on it?

I'd be tempted, too, at least for the unique factor. I wouldn't expect to flip it at that price, though. Go take it for a test ride, maybe you'll like the ride characteristics.

I've never heard of the brand, but it seems an interesting bike. I like Tange 2, I think it's on the same plane as Reynolds 531. This is the 2nd post I've seen from you, have you got the flippers bug or something? Your area seems like uncharted waters,k so may be some good finds. I agree that at 200, it doesn't leave much room for a flip. Although, I could see it selling for upwards of 250 in my area with a good cleaning, a lot of touch-up, and good photos.

Just wanting to add another bike to my "collection". I found this one and the Raleigh GP I posted about. I talked to the owner of the Raleigh, he wasn't in town today so I wasn't able to see it. I really like the vintage lightweight race bikes but I cannot afford a high end purchase at this time so I'm going to settle for mid-range.

FYI, Carabela is the sister brand to Windsor. Both made in Mexico by Acer-mex. Nothing special, but pretty uncommon.

You don't see to many around and not much info.I picked one up last week,just frame,forks,headset,stem and bb cups for $90 and appears to be Italian threaded.$200 for a complete one is not too shabby.
