The wife sez, "Sell my bikes."

Age, some health problems and waning interest indicate that it's time to cut loose her share of the fleet. We've done this before but it's unlikely that we'll restock
for her in the future so, in no particular order, here are the ones we're offering. All bikes are located in Richmond VA 23227 and I'd rather not ship but have worked with Bike Flights before (not recently). All prices as shown + shipping, or you're welcome to come get them.

SOLD---Peugeot Orient Express from about '88, a sample from my repping days in the Watermelon color and 18" frame size. Full CroMo with SunTour AccuShift 3x7. Riser bar, Allsop stem and Club Roost tires are nonstock. $150.



GIVEN AWAY---Raleigh Sports ladies' in 19" size, blue. Hub date '78. I actually bought this for a neighbor who saw my Sports and wanted one. Found this at a yard sale when it was
20 years old and it was absolutely pristine. My neighbor left it in her yard for 20 years and then gave it back to me, no longer perfect. $60 and does not include the
Ideale #6 saddle.

How it looked when I got it back.


Fixed up, with its Sportsy siblings.


Still available--RANS Wave recumbent from about '99. $350. This will be troublesome to ship.


SOLD---This began as a basic Chiorda road bike that I made into an MTB for her when we were dating back in the early '80s. 20" Berceau/mixte frame. Paint is pink with turquoise panels by Marinoni, who also did some braze-ons for it. Peugeot branded new-style Stronglight 99 triple crank. Drum brakes, motorcycle dirtbike bars with SunTour thumbies. I still have the road fork (also pink) so the bike can be returned to road status (27" wheel clearance). $200.


I'll get any photos of them that you might want and will add more details but wanted to get these posted. Thanks for looking.

Whoa, that Chiorda is an awesome little klunker! Would slot right in next to the Schwinn Excelsior conversions from back in the very early days of mountain biking.

Raleigh GONE to a new home, given to my wife's niece who wants a town bike.

The Peugeot just sold and the original post was edited to reflect that. Raleigh left a while back and the edit shows that.

The RANS and the Chiorda are still available.

The pink Chiorda just sold, so only the RANS Wave recumbent remains.

Whew! At least she didn't say, "Sell your bikes, Thumpy."

Actually, she did suggest that in the current climate I might find it advantageous to market a few of them. Sure, honey, I'll get right on that.

C'mon in, the water's fine! I sold two just last week; it felt good. And two last fall. Now I'm down to 19 (I think), including my wife's and daughters bikes. I really wouldn't mind getting rid of a few more, and I'm getting my asking prices pretty readily.

We're down to ten (and a frame and a B.O.B.) in the household and a milestone; we have enough hooks on the garage wall for all the resident bikes. No bikes littering the floor space for the first time since the move years ago. When her recumbent sells we'll have a hook surplus.
