Where are you located?

Are you willing to ship?

Are you the original owner?

How long had you had it?

Why are you selling it?

What have you done to it?

Hello, thank you for your interest in the bike.

I am willing to ship the bike, if you will cover the cost.

I have had the bike for 6 months... it was a gift from my sister. She received the bike from a good friend, who was moving. The bike is too small for me and I have never ridden it.

I am am selling the bike, so I can buy myself a new awesome road bike!

These photos have better resolution than the ones in your Craigslist listing. This bike has the pretty silver overlay on the lugs which Bruce did on some of his bikes. I would advise you to include some close up photos of the fine lugwork for which Mr. Gordon is so justifiably renowned.

And some drive side shots, and closeups of components. Condition is everything, and that one looks to be in very nice condition!

Too small for me, thankfully ;P

Looks like a Super Record v2 group.

24" wheels mean that this is really a collector's item and not much more.

Looks like 700c to me, not 24".
I think that the seller is not familiar with the nuances of bicycle wheel sizing and probably just measured from outside of rim to outside of rim and came up with roughly 24."

[MENTION=490655]Bturbo9[/MENTION] could you tell us what numbers are written on the sides of the tires?
