2013 Best Looking Bike FUJI MOUNTAIN BIKE - TOP OF THE LINE & NEW RIMS

FUJI 19" BRAND NEW 2013

THIS IS THE BEST OF THE BEST. I Know what look great on a bike and this is the very mountain bike out there. I have alloy red hand grip and "Loaded Rims"

The is a "disc brakes" mountain bike and its the best looking bike out there. I get a lot of looks on the bike and I take care of my product (TLC as they say)

Brand New:

Serfas Gel Seat: Cost of that $50
Brand New (Loaded Rims Tubeless ) Cost $200
Alloy Hand Grips $50
Lights: $75
Brand New Tires $75

I put alot of extra into this bike.

Note: You would have to see it to appreciate it. This bike will go fast no doubt for a mountain bike. This pictures speaks for itself

Please call for a appointment so that I can show it.

I will take best offer but no low balling, but that's about it, because the rims are too expensive that was order from San Diego (Loaded Manufacturing) and the labor that was put into it.

If you want to see the rim its Candy Apples Red here is the website.

condition: excellent size / dimensions: Full size 27


Here's a wonderful "Step Thru" Touring Bike. It's a 1974 Murray "Leisure Tour" department store bike. Although its a 40 year old bike the presentation is excellent with a clean elegant look. Sold without mechanical issues. Lubed, adjusted and thoroughly tested. Terrific bike. All quality classic Japanese Shimano "Lark"derailleurs and Dia Compe brake components. Tire hugging CHROME fenders give a Euro-continental look. Classic Troxel sprung saddle. Union pedals. Great chrome on wheels, handlebars and stem. New black wall tires with puncture resistant tubes. 54cm. For a rider 5'6" up. Looks straight out of the New England countryside 35 years ago. Why buy an ordinary bike when you can buy this elegant classic tourist cycle. Outstanding!

I see this guys ads all the time.
Every bike he sell he claims as a touring bike

I meant the Swinn, but it would be a good question for the WF seller too....hehe

Bicycle looking for new home - $20 (Dallas Oregon)




I received this in a trade and do not know what it is. I would like to find it a new home that would appreciate it and/or use it.

Has some markings but very hard to see, fenders and seat seem to be off another bike but not sure.
Good little town rider that has many years of use ahead
Knowing what it is... that's beyond my understanding.

condition: like new


Shifters work, brakes work however it needs brake lines. Needs a seat. Back rim and tire work fine I just don't feel like putting it on. I have the seat post for it I just forgot to take a picture of it. Comes with cargo rack and water bottle holder so you're stoked on that atleast. Bike is a specialized hard rock. Don't ask for more pictures I probably don't feel like it. Yes ofcourse it has rust, BBQ most likly not included (depends on offer) Make me an offer and come pick it up

Here's a CL ad for broken down 1972 Raleigh Record.

"Good, all-original, condition. Made in Nottingham, England, 1972 21.5" (54cm) size; High tensile steel; Simplex derailleur gear; Weinmann center pull brakes; Milremo stem. With mounted Zefal (France) tire air pump, Wrights leather saddle (later acquired by Brooks), Jim Blackburn luggage carrier, and Raleigh water bottle & cage. Needs restoration to be of high value. Some surface rust, but when buffed an area of the
wheel, it cleaned up really nicely. Condition: New." Asking Price: $350.00

Is that a genuine "Jim Blackburn" rack? That plus leather saddle might actually make this worth it.

There's original realio trulio "Jim Blackburn" racks, and there's the currently operating "Blackburn" company that makes racks and probably some related things. I believe there is some relation. You can poke around in C&V and might find some more info.

Nah it's a tri conversion post, I can't see it very well, but I think I even have one of these exact posts somewhere. The funny thing is if he just left it as a road bike he'd probably have ridden it more.,,,,BD

"Jim" Blackburn racks are alright, but they don't get more than $20-40 on eBay, where you get the highest possible price. Which is why I haven't bothered trying to sell any of the ones I have. At that price, they're just a nice, quality rack, not some special collectors item.
