FS: early 80s Zeus Super Cronos

SOLD

So this is a pretty unique one and one I am loathe to part with but maybe slightly less loathe than some of my other bikes. This is a Zeus Super Cronos from probably 1981. 59cm ctc seat tube. Electric blue with chrome head lugs. Reynolds 531SL tubing. This is probably the epitome of Spanish steel bikes. Almost every component is Zeus including the dropouts. Exceptions are the Arius saddle (NOS, Spanish), the handlebars (forgot the brand at the moment but they are a Spanish brand I had never heard of), the Cinelli stem and the Ambrosio rims. This is a weight weenie bike for sure. Aluminum freewheel, titanium bottom bracket spindle and derailleur bits. Reynolds Special Lightweight tube set. 28 hole rims, factory drillium.

Condition is excellent. Decals have some scrapes and tubing decals are flaking. One small brake ding on down tube and small ding on top tube, both shown in pictures. Otherwise almost perfect.

Zeus 2000/Super Cronos Group
  • 2001 sidepull brakes and levers
  • headset
  • titanium bottom bracket
  • crankset
  • titanium spindle pedals
  • hubs, 28 hole, and skewers
  • front and rear derailleurs with titanium pivot bolts
  • shift levers
  • freewheel, aluminum cogs
NOS Arius saddle
Cinelli 1A stem
Ambrosio tubular rims
new leather bar tape
new cables
Continental Giro tires

I'm offering it here for $1500 plus shipbikes shipping.
