Not exactly C&V but I picked up a 9-speed Ultegra group (minus the brakes) for 75$CDN. It is used but in good shape and it turned out that the rear derailleur is a Dura Ace model that the
guy bought NOS on eBay 5 months ago!

I already have a spare set of Ultegra/Mavic CXP30 wheels so this group will probably find it's way onto my Battaglin.

1973 Raleigh Twenty folding bike

Picked this up from an old Englishman today. Actually in pretty decent shape. Just needs a good cleaning and some attention to the brightwork. I love that it has the original (and working) hand pump. Just need to find a chain guard. I think I did well for $75.

I acquired this Hercules (made by Raleigh) earlier this winter. Everything seems to be original, perhaps even the tires. The hub says 66 on it, so it's a 1966 or 1967 model. I wanted a 3-speed to modernize, but this one is too close to original to mess with. I don't like the twist-grip shifter, but I'll leave it.

This was only $60 on craigslist. This gives me hope that not everyone on craigslist is a shyster.

Nice pick up. What does the back look like?

cb400bill, The back looks just like the front. It is pretty nice. It must be a racer cut, because it is an XXL but it's pretty tight on me. I usually wear an XL..Good quality though..

Nothing too special, but I picked up this Bridgestone MB-6 to which someone has added a Specialized suspension fork. $35 made it mine.

I bought this Rocky Mountain Team Giro road bike today. It hasn't been ridden in years and the parts are in as-new condition but I don't really
know much about it so I created a thread in the appraisal forum...do you think these parts would be suitable on a Ciocc?

Nothing great...but it's been so long I had to do something. I braved the rain and set out to the thrift stores etc. Long story short, one guy put me on to another so I went by his house. Two bikes for 30 bucks. He's got a nice womens world tourist I may go back for but he wants 40. We'll see...

A Schwinn Suburban and a Raliegh Horizon Sport...

Cheers to you, Sir. I stopped by two Goodwills last night on my way home from work. I've never been fortunate enough to find something like that!

Thanx!!! It's an Old Town Loon...very handy for getting away from it all. There's a boat launch just down the street on the Barnett Reservoir. 33,000 acres of Google her up...hunting, fishing, bird watching, bike paths and yes...........Gators. They get pretty big but of course they seem twice as big when you're in a kayak!!

edit: I need to throw those crappy mops away!! Mrs. Cloud's been a swiffer girl for years!!

Was it in the men's t shirt section? I never find anything either. Then again, I usually get out of the Goodwill as fast as I can!

It was actually in with the sports pants and jackets. I also picked up a set of Performance long cycling pants at the same time. I get lucky every once in a while. My son has claimed the jersey already.

No, it was in St. Charles and was listed as MB-6. The guy was moving to Idaho and was getting rid of stuff.

Well I went ahead and picked up the world tourist for 40 bucks. It needs tubes and tires and has a scratched up front fender. I must be getting senile. Oh well, it should still turn a dollar this spring. It shifts and brakes like butter...just needs cleaning and tires...maybe a rack will help it out.

A couple more peeks at the pawn-shop Prelude I picked up last week.





Aside from the saddle bag I put on there (which came off my single speed), the bike is in as-bought condition (aside from a few adjustments).
