Cool. I hope it helps your build in some way. Sounds like it will be a great ride!

Yeah, anyone got a large-ish Vent Noir mixte for sale?


Doesn't have to be a '76.

Currently For Sale

Not a mixte and a different component mix from the review article, but this has been on the Buffalo CL for a while:

21" Vent Noir II CL listing

Looks like a very nice one. Thanks, but too small and seeking only a large size mixte. Casually seeking.
$500 seems a fair CL asking price in a big city market - Buffalo booming?

The listing says "black/green smoked chrome (vent noir) finish" - and all along I thought Vent Noir meant Black Wind and they gave it the unique coating that looked fast. In the manner, that chromo-velato (sp?) paint jobs on bikes were soooo... unique and appealing in a sexy way.
