Facilitation in Montreal?

There's a frame & wheels I'd like to buy, the seller might say yes if I can arrange packing & shipping. I pay all costs+.

Figured I'd post here as well as the facilitation thread - target your audience...

Perhaps someone will step forward and answer the call.

Where was that one located? Long gone now. That frame is similar to this blue ghetto banger one spotted recently locally.

This looks like an older, entry level frame with replacement decals. It has stamped dropouts and no braze-ons other than cable stops and two strange bosses on the underside of the top tube, spaced as if they are bottle bosses. Owner mod?

This appears to be an older, entry level frame with more modern, replacement decals. It has stamped dropouts and no brazed-on fittings other than cable housing stops and two strange bosses on the underside of the top tube, spaced as if they are for a water bottle. I guess it's OK, if chrome bling is your thing, otherwise I'd pass.

It was in the GTA, Markham ON. Yes sold but regardless of the model, still seems worth the $25

Looks to be in pretty immaculate shape for a 30+ year old bike. I've yet to finish working on my 90 Fisher hybrid so not in the cards for me.

Norco Kokanee - $60

Local Koke - $60. Priced correctly, IMO (not pie in the sky dreaming like many local listings).

Went and had a look as he was a 10 minute ride away. That frame is seriously sunfaded. I think the original paint was orange but appears a light salmon colour now. Made in Taiwan. Suntour 7 transmission and "Target" crankset. Appeared to be single walled 27"ers, but alloy. I didn't buy or offer anything for it. GT, I don't think you missed anything here.

I used an LBS for a distance purchase; worked out perfectly

I persuaded a seller to take a frame/fork/wheels/parts to a bike shop local to him and they packed and arranged shipping.

This post is to say what a great job they did. The shop is Cycles CL in Montreal. I did it all via email, they were *really* quick replying and doing the work.

They had a used box they gave me, charged me an hour's labour, arranged shipping at better than price as any I could find, and it arrived yesterday. Below are some pictures what they did, and the next time I am in Montreal I am going to go see the shop, I think I'll like it.

Wheels had plastic protectors on the axle ends, wrapped and taped, fork and rear dropouts had the plastic reinforcing bars inserted.
The long box inside held the fork and the brakes:



Frame wrapped completely:



Dropouts, bb, and head tube extra protection:







Fork packing:








There will be more pictures of the bike in a separate thread...

Benotto Tandem - priceless

owner states:

" I am not interested in selling this vintage steel racer for cash so don't bother asking how much money I want for it. Replies asking for a price will be ignored. I want to trade this Benotto for an used Mac Pro computer ".

That Benotto has been for sale for sometime with seller only interested in a used MAC, perhaps someone has an idea what a used one is worth

I saw this add when he first posted it and I have an older Mac Pro computer that I could trade him but just don't know what I would do with a tandem bike. My wife barely rides her the nice hybrid I bought her, can't see her wanting to get on this.
