This Proctor frame is very nice. Mixed bag of components. The frame highlights are pink while I think the tires, tape, etc. are red.

Thought my wife would like it but the black is too much .

Pricing seems optimistic but the seller is responsive and seems reasonable.

If anyone needs help to facilitate a purchase / shipping Id be happy to help.

cheers.

Brad

Wilier road bike

Hmmm. I smell a rat here.

$1000? Don't these things sell for wayyy more than that? What's with the Bontrager rims on it? A bike of this calibre usually would warrant multiple good pictures, preferably outside of a bedroom. He misspelled "Wilier" too, twice.

Hard to say, looks a bit older and maybe seller was not aware of "COVID" pricing? The seller has a 5 star rating on marketplace, for whatever that's worth. I will admit to having bought both my road bikes at a great price from legit sellers. I bought a 2009 Opus Alum, road bike for $250 about 4 years ago and then got a 2013 Cannondale Caad8 for $450 last year. Both in great shape.
I thought I did pretty well.

I suggested this to bertinjim but he demurred citing costs SO BUYER BEWARE. Perhaps there is still $200 Canadian present (forks, headset, bars and binder bolt)?
Either way, it doesn't fit me and I just bought a Panasonic so posting incase someone is seeking a way to spend money.....

"The seat stays are a shot-in design and they mount really low on the seat tube away from any reinforcing lug or steel. Genius seat tubes are really thin as are stays and the braze/silver solder has failed on both seat stays where they join the seat tube. A $200 bargain that would quickly become a $1,000 frame after repairs and repaint. Too expensive a bargain but quite pretty in a 80s sort of way"

Beautiful Coppi frameset - 57 cm

Clearing out my collection. This pretty Italian lugged and chromed frame was imported by me as NOS and built up into a bike that was mainly used as a display. Dating from 1999 it's a nice example from the end of the era of lightweight steel racing frames. TT is 57 cm c-c making it a "large".

Features are - Columbus Genius tubeset, 12 cm Cinelli stem, 42 cm Cinelli bars, Stronglight delta headset (needle bearing - v. rare), downtube cable adapters., and cable guides. BB is Italian (no surprise) and all threads are good.

Frame has hairline cracks in the welds where the seatstays join the seattube (last pic). Making this good for parts or display, or repair.

I'll take $200

Some kind of Italian frame https://www.facebook.com/marketplace...6668715965608/
Abbottsford is the area of BC where there was a LOT of flooding recently. The highways were cut off, rail was interrupted, and the gas pipeline was shut down. There have been honor based gas rationing (30L), or so I'm told. I'm not really sure since I get around by bike. Makes me think I should work on an urban assault bike.

This bike is worthy of it's own thread. I don't know if it's a Tigierre as have never seen one. I think if you post it someone will know it MauriceMoss juvela , it could be an obscure contract maker??
