I have a 1977 26 in. Sierra Schwinn bicycle that has been stored since 1978. It's like brand new. Very rare. It has the chrome forks, the original toe clips, back brakes, front lights, water bottle, odometer ,bicycle bag and lock&chain(forgot the combination{smile**). The bicycle has 77 miles. I bought it brand new in 1977 and have stored it since 1977. Selling it for $1800 or best offer.

Very rare! Nice to have in your collection.

[h=2]57cm Peugeot 12 Indexed Speed Road bike - $250 (spo val)[/h]


Ready to ride 12 road bike with 700c wheels. Shifts, stops, goes, etc. Very clean bike. I know this is a tuned machine. I didn't just pull it out of a shed and arbitrarily set a price for it. Please don't contact me asking for a discount.

Looks like T Brown got into Dad's spray paint when he got home from pre-school. I'd give him $2.50 for it though, the frame is my size.

I agree. Anyone that would brag about this sort of cluster-flub is no artist. I can't believe what the rubes think is great in my area. They really have either no class or no taste. Or, maybe both!

I could tell you that but I'd be lying to you.......... There is one on each side of the tail light panel. Seriously. You should see it at night with all the glow lights underneath and the awesome lights behind the "shark teeth". It attracts a lot of attention though, I'll give him that...... like a bad wreck along the highway.

Rest assured it would be wrapped in trash bags until I could get it stripped but there's no fear. I'm on the "middle coast', unless he's willing to ship it for free my family is safe.

A really, really good way to get extra chainring clearance, well, is to just cut a big chunk out of the chainstay!
