FS: UPDATED: Bertoni, Fondriest, Motobecane, Bianchi, Specialized, Lambert

UPDATE: I have updated the listing to reflect bikes that are sold & some new prices. Thank you for your interest!

OK, continuing my foray into thinning out my "collection" of bikes in the name of a new Italian driveline for one of my cars, I'm going to make a post with a whole bunch of bikes I would offer up here. Please message me/email me/etc. if you have questions or are interested. I'm grabbed photos I had on hand, so none of these are ideal in terms of displaying the cycling awesomeness each bike or frame holds. Some are ones I'd prefer to only sell as frames, others I'd sell as a complete bike. Anything that's not sold locally will be boxed carefully (I have LOTs of shipping experience, though technically I'm not a "professional") using a proper bike box & shipped via FedEx Ground (probably bikeflights ) which I have recently had good experiences with. I am putting prices on everything, but if you think I'm out of line, PLEASE (but politely) let me know....This is all stuff I've had a long time, and maybe I paid too much for it, maybe I paid too little, maybe I'm out of touch one way or another. I have not been as closely in tune with the market on vintage/semi-vintage stuff in the last few years due to a busy family &, frankly, more riding than talking about bikes! Anyway, here goes...

1981 (?) Motobecane Grand Touring 55/56cm. This is the 3x5 version that does not have the half-step upper front rings. This has been in my family since new & about 10 years ago I completely rebuilt it (new bearings, cables, chain, etc.), has wonderful Velo Orange fenders, new tires, tape, etc. Rack is included, bag is not. never wrecked or abused, no corrosion, just a nice bike & it looks cool too! complete $350




1986 Bertoni Professionale 56cm, Columbus SLX, no rust or wrecks ever! the detail & quality of this frame is astounding, fully chromed under rose paint, typical chips here & there. This bike has always been in loving hands & has had two retro-modern builds by me. Accepts 130mm rear hubs, btw. Frame: $400

and, more recently for a local crit...




and as a disclaimer, I will add that I'm still researching these so I may want to amend the post with pricing up or down & unfortunately I have some sentimental attachment to each of these (and so do some of my family members), so there's a slight chance I would have to withdraw some from consideration. Anyway, for the sake of starting whatever conversations ought to come, I'm putting these out here. Thanks for the time/space & considerate feedback!

OOPS, I ran up against a limit on the number of images, so here is the continuation of the above post...

Specialized Crossroads early 1990s hybrid bike. 700c wheels, this is the "CX" version with some cool small-small 3x7 shimano driveline. Dusty & in need of a full refresh/tune, but complete (I have the wheels) - $100


Fondriest, 54cm, Columbus Gara tubing, no corrosion, no wrecks, paint/finish is in pretty good condition 130mm rear. frame: $285


Bianchi beater/NYC frame...has issues, looks beat, but actually solid, 55cm $50


Lambert 'death fork' bike, 57(ish) CM, in original, complete condition, but in full need of clean-up & tuning. I probably won't ride it and it needs a loving home. complete $175

...and...
Marin Treviso, 55cm (maybe a little tall for the typical 55), currently has Campy 10 mix group, offset yellow/red decals, cool bike, nice tubing & not so common to find. Currently freshly tuned. $750

Opaque Blue Schwinn has "Sport Tourer" on its down tube, I believe. Different bikes, Sport Tourer is a level above the Super Sport.

Interested in this frame and fork, what is the BB threading, please? BSC, or Italian, I am assuming.

The Sports Tourer has standard English/ISO BB threading, Bill.

The Treviso is an awesome bike, Columbus Nemo Tubing or something and made by Billato. I have one, unfortunately, the 1" head tube makes fork replacement a bit challenging, but I put an Easton EC 90 on mine and it was great. Those stems are garbage. Bin immediately.

Thanks. Yeah, if I keep it & put in regular riding rotation, there will be some cockpit changes, but so far I only made it fully functional for my own "do I like it as much as I think I will" purposes.

I've been majorly distracted since I first posted these...I can get & plan to get new photos and I am very open to nice, friendly offers!

Thanks in advance!

It is so dangerous when someone my size sells a bunch of bicycles - and at bargain prices. If I didn't have my hands (and garage) full already, I'd be all over a couple of these. All the best in finding new homes for all these. Now if you have a silver rim 700c clincher wheelset spaced for 130 that will take 35s comfortably that you are looking to move along, I may be interested.

thank you for the kind words. There's always room for one more bike, right? What width would you call comfortable for 35s?

Is this project a FIAT 124, hopefully the twin cam spider which is a looker, and not the sedan-coupe which was not a very reliable car?

Hey Hey, I happen to really like the Sedans, Coupes & Wagons...I have 2 124 Spiders, 2 124 Coupes, a 124 Sedan & a 124 Wagon. All of the cars share the same chassis/engine platform (my sedan & wagon are the twin cam models...but even if they didn't come that way from the factory, it's only a simple engine swap). The Coupe/Sedan/Wagon have a slightly longer wheelbase which I tend to prefer, but it's hard to not enjoy the good looks of the Pininfarina design on the Spider.

a 1969 124 Spider is a cool car & certainly worthy of bringing back.

And, back to bikes.....

16mm or more on the inner width. Traditional profile preferred.

Big bump today...finally I have updated with a revised list & some pricing changes (reductions). This is good stuff for which you should take advantage of my poor thinking in offering to sell! haha
