New Year's Frameset Clearance, 25 inch +/-

OK, by "special" request, here are some 25 inch frame sets! Seat posts not included. All prices DO NOT include shipping. No dents or dings.

Some are center to top, others are center to center measurements on seat tube. See pics for top tube and seat tube measurements.

On shipping, I have successfully packed a 25 inch frame into a 108 inch box in the past. That keeps shipping reasonable. If you want an estimate, just go to USPS.com, my zip code is 28786, add $10 for packing materials.


1. 1981 Schwinn Super Sport: Believe it or not, the 1981 Super Sport was a TOURING BIKE! check out the Findley/Cooper catalog pages. Made in Japan by Panasonic, Tange Champion #2 tubing. See close up for paint loss under top tube. No dents or dings. $105 plus shipping.

2. SOLD. 1989+/- Centurion Ironman Expert, Tange 1 tubing.

3. 1983 Trek 520, Reynolds 501 tubing, needs some minor touch up, some scrapes on DT (clamp on cable stop or DT shifters should cover) $150 plus shipping.

4. SOLD and picked up: 1989 +/- Schwinn Prelude, Columbus Tenax frameset.....

No dibs. Multiple purchases or local pickup get priority. Local pickup will also get some freebies to go with the frames.

Darn it. Why did you have to post frames my size? I'm trying to be better about my purchases this year.

Prelude is pending. The rest are still available!!

I am also open to part trades/full trades. Just no frames (I have plenty of them right now!!!) Trades work best in person, where you can see exactly what you are getting (and the same for me of course).

I have worked out several trades over the years with forum members.

Great FRAMES!

The Trek is 62 cm from the center of the bottom bracket to the center of the top tube?
If so, I would definately be interested.

Thank you.

Let me double check just to make positive. Sure looks that way in the picture.

The 1981 Super Sport is one of my favorites. Except for consumables, mine is OEM.

I have measured that 520 about a dozen times. Clearly in the catalog it is listed as 25.5 inches. I get 25 inches center to top, and 24 1/2 inches center to center. Serial number is 06078x. (x is a number).

It's more of a sport touring geometry. 41cm chainstays, not quite as relaxed fork geometry as a touring bike, beautiful Dia Compe Gran Compe sidepull brakes. But 22mm rim width rims take a nice wide tire but at 35mm tire width the investment cast front fork crown leaves no room for fenders.

Would you happen to have the rear rack for this 25" frame?

I have both an original NOS Aero Bottle in the box and the one that was original to the bike; and could trade for ???

All other parts on the Super Sport are long gone. It was missing some of the original parts anyway.

Ironman is pending. Still plenty available! Get that frameset and build it up before bike season starts!

I am happy to report my inventory is starting to drop after cresting at an unbelievably high number the end of 2014. I won't put a total up here, lets just say >100. 15 bikes sold in 2015, along with a set of Campy wheels, two Parks professional work stands, and a pile of components. I have 10 more going to the co-op. I still have plenty more to go!

Got anymore extra large frames on closeout, Thrifty Bill? I'm kinda-sorta shopping for a quality (531/SL/SP/Tange1-2/Ishiwata21...did I forget any?) type frame, hopefully with about a ~60cm top tube and totally thrashed paint for a refinishing project.

I've got a Bianchi Limited, don't remember whether it is a 60 ST or a 63 ST. I really need to take inventory. Been too busy working on the new garage, and we move in two weeks, so its pretty crazy right now.

are we talking about just a frame or a full bike? I'd be interested in further details (ie seat tube length, paint condition/pics and price).

I'm with Lascaux, I'm in the market for a decent frameset with a 60-64 seat tube.

On the cosmetically challenged side, I have a 1983 or 1984 Lotus Eclair, their touring model. I have treated the frame for surface rust, but it really needs a repaint. It also has the odd Deore AX DT shift bosses. I have the Deore parts SOMEWHERE, but I have not been able to find them.

On the upper end, I have an Alan carbon/alloy lug frameset. It was a frankenbike, lots of mismatched parts, so its hanging in the lineup.

Focus right now is on the upcoming move (fortunately workshop is not moving) in 9 days...... Counting down......

Here's what else I have in L/XL sizes:

1. 1981 Bianchi, I think it is a limited. Made in Japan, originally came with Shimano 600 components, 23 1/2 inch top tube center to center, 25 inch seat tube, center to top. $125 plus shipping, etc.

2. 1970s Viscount (Lambert) with replacement cromoly fork. TT: 57cm center to center, ST: 61cm center to center. Normal bottom bracket threading. $110 plus shipping.

3. 1984+/- Lotus Eclair: seat tube 60cm center to center, top tube 56cm center to center. No dents or dings, but cosmetically challenged. $100 plus shipping.

4. 1979 Trek 710: its in a different price category. Full Reynolds 531. 24 inch frame size. Serial "H4D9xii". I'll put something together on it if there is interest.
