WTB '86 Peloton or '87 Tempo (extra clean only, larger frame)

In 24" or 25" frame size, F/F or whole bike, but I'm looking for pristine or near mint condition. (Could be waiting awhile, I know)

I have an '87 Tempo I like a lot, but the paint is only so-so, (as pictured):


I also dig the black/white scheme of the '86 Peloton, if you happen to have one lying about

Good luck, Tim. I see yours has a long cage RD. Mine are generally set up as 9 or 10 speed. And they are FAST.
Iíve had maybe a dozen 87 Tempos pass thru my hands in the past decade. Even the really nice ones looked pretty tatty after a year or so of regular, careful use. The paintís just too thin and the edges on the lugs too sharp for rust resistance.
The last one I got from a midwest Co-op. Rides as well as any of the others but has some touchup.
They are GREAT bikes!

Peloton

I have such a beautiful 24 or 25 inch white Peloton with a tan Brooks B 17, matching Brooks bar tape and bag, new Open Pro wheels, Suntour Supurbe....

I do need to sell bikes. At least 15 too many.
The Peloton is a beautiful bike. It's a scosche too large for me.

I only rode it on Sunny days. It's like a classic Cadillac.

I'll have to see if I have a picture.


Beauty!!

@3alarmer, that looks pretty nice. At your leisure, can you Post or PM me some pics of what the biggest flaws in the paint job (if any) there are? I've already been in touch w/jjames with a similar request.

Thanks

...sorry, I was just commenting on the size. Not sure I'm selling, and I'm not sure I want to pay for a seller's account here to do so. The whole boxing and shipping thing is now much more problematic for me with the pandemic thing going on. If you can make that 25" frame work for you, you should grab it. They are sweet bikes, although even the Super Sport made in Japan models from that same era are also nice. Ironically, I really have decided I probably need to downsize, I'll just end up doing it locally to avoid all the trips involved in boxing and shipping.

I'm well into what everyone is telling me is a higher risk group, but I don't feel any more like James Bond, so they might be wrong.

It might be time for you to take the plunge and embark on the great "learning to artfully touch up bicycle paint" adventure. That will keep you busy for hours if you have to stay at home.

Ah, so you're just here to tease me, then?

And actually, I'm pretty good a the color matching and touch ups. But even so, I can always spot the ones I've done myself.

Looks like I've worked out a deal with jjames for his nicely preserved Pelo, minus a few parts for shipping and general thriftiness. Thanks everyone for your inputs.

Anyone need a 25" 1987 Tempo with just-ok paint?

Some People!!!

So my wife does not understand how the Peloton being shipped.

Me finding this project in the storage unit when I was looking for a box for the Peloton.


Miami Vice.

Yes there is another Ironman Expert in the box behind too.....it was just delivered.


Me selling this Trek 610 frame because it's too tall.



Trek 610

Is not really downsizing.

I can't not buy a frame to replace the 610. The components are too sweet for the parts bin.

And I can't not built the MV Ironman.

I think my math works. It's really minus two, correct? Or one. Something like that.

My wife just rolled her eyes when we came home and there was a box at the door.

I'm hoping I get to the Peloton box before my wife sees it... I mean, I've gotten rid of FOUR bikes in the last year, including two last month, but that's probably ancient history to her. She does't see those empty, forlorn hooks on my bike shop ceiling.

Btw

When I was looking through the shed for a box (and found the Ironman) I found another 25 inch blue and white Tempo frame and what I hope is a 24 inch (but memory tells me it's a 25 inch) NOS, never built Schwinn Voyageur frame.

We can fill a couple more hooks.

I missed this a few weeks ago. ff anyone else is still in the market, my 25" Peloton is available. It's neo-Retroed and ready to go. Seat tube is a scosche too tall for me. Or I'd swap framesets for a 24" frame in good knick.

Here's my 1986 modernized Peloton:
-Shimano RS20 Wheelset with 10 speed cassette and Schwalbe Lugano 23c tires.
-Tektro interchangeable model dual pivots fitted with Koolstop pads
-Origin 8 quill adapter, Titec Hellbent Stem (120, 0 degree), and the wonderful but now discontinued IRD Blackbird Comp handlebars. Origin8 twintape, 105 5700 series STI shifters
-Cinelli Vai seatpost holding up a Kore Retrobu (Turbo clone) saddle

-FSA Gossamer 50/34 crankset
-Microshift "White" derailleur set. 100 percent Shimano compatible.
It weighed 22.5 lbs built.

@brandon98, "neo-Retroed" indeed. That thing is completely bonkers. One of the many I was admiring while drooling over the 1986 Peloton Registry thread.
