Not all of us have hours upon hours to scan the internet looking for the next project bike, or the last part to complete the last project. Find something cool, rare, or just plain cheap? Give the community the heads-up!

Phoenix CL - "Used bikes - Schwinn, Murray, Ross great condition - $20"

from Phoenix CL - "used bikes - schwinn..."

"Men's, women's and children's bicycles. $20-$75 Schwinn, Huffy, Ross, KHS, Roadmaster bikes from 70's, 80's and current. Mostly 70's era Bike Boom bikes (Schwinns, Huffy, Murray) including Varsity and cruisers. 27" and 26" bikes. All have been cleaned and most have new tires and/or saddles. Great inexpensive bikes. Easily converted to fixed gear or single speed. "

probably only one $20 bike in the bunch, but there may be something in there for parts or as a project bike.

This is no bargain, but it makes me swoon. It is exactly like my Olympic 12 except in blue instead of red. Damn, I wish I'd never wrecked that bike.

VINTAGE 1980s NISHIKI OLMYPIC 12 LUGGED CRO MO BICYCLE

The ebay bike:



My Oly 12:



Not exactly a bargain at $275 (incl shipping), but if I had the money to spend, I might do it.

nine14six....I'd run out and grab these while you can.

Make sure you get the little lever stops that go behind them as well.

The place where I bought them have a few more and they are priced at either $25 or $50.

I'm watching for one of those for someone who needs one on the job to haul tools around in a huge building north of Milwaukee. I think shipping costs from Ohio would negate that $25-$50 price without factoring in the tuneup/overhaul costs.

Hard to tell with the small pic but I think you did just fine. What model is it?

Sort of concealed in this ad is a Raleigh rod-brake (presumably) bicycle. I did email and he says it's a women's frame bike, which ended my interest. I haven't seen pictures or anything, though.

Here's some photos of my Olympic 12, a twin to your crashed bike:

Since the photos I've removed the dorky front reflector and added some nice SKS fenders and MKS Touring pedals.

Seeing as how the other one by the same seller went for nearly $1200 it's pretty likely...

if anyone ever comes accross a 66-70cm frame with track dropouts i would be much obliged, (i almost bought the beautiful british gameson path bike on ebay recently but it was too small at 64cm to be worth it). I know these would be super rare, but its worth a try.

And that's somehow supposed to make me feel better, huh?

Seriously nice bike you got there.
