Nothing wrong with this bike!

Worth the ask for the wheel set and the seat bag alone. Would probably sell for more in a bigger place.

Posting as I loved the copy.

Works well? Stored in shed?
You say it works well,but spiders have nested in the front brakes
and no, judging by the gravel banked long ago over the rear wheel it was stored outside beside the shed

Vintage Road bike. Super cute bike. Works well. Has been stored in a shed. Viscount Seat is a bit beat up. Comes with a front basket. Tires need replacing. See pics. They're going for like $700+ on ebay, I believe.

When I bought my T400, it had RSX on it with 7 speed in the back for a whopping $1,100 CDN. All that for Suntour Blaze? He's full of himself mate.

classic German bike from 1977 "The Raleigh" - $50 (Seattle-Pioneer Square)



This is a classic, and it will sell for $1,000+ at an antique store. It has the classic _suicide gears"
Take it cheap for $50

That is Larry the bike flipper representing Long Island and New York. He has been doing this for years. He says he is professional. You have to pay like it came from a bike shop but he lists the bikes as an owner rather than a dealer.

I and others have flagged this guy, but to no avail. He keeps going. He also has the annoying habit of posting an additional ad when one of his bikes sells.
