? 54cm MIYATA AlumiCross in Excellent Condition MUST SEE

Condition not actually that excellent, price probably too high, but it's interesting. Bonded tubes and internal cables, late 3x6 indexed Suntour group. I just post these sorts of bikes because I enjoy the obscure bikes from the big companies... that's why I chose my XR800 :-)

Schwinn Paramount Series 5 bike!!!
[h=2]Schwinn Paramount Series 5 bike!!! - $300[/h]






craigslist - Map data OpenStreetMap



(google map) (yahoo map)

make / manufacturer: Schwinn Paramount
model name / number: Series 5




'92 Schwinn Paramount Series 5!! Great road bike for racing or pleasure. White frame with purple splatter. Seat has a cover in the picture, actual seat is black, can take or leave the cover.

It's in great condition except for some of the logo decals, which you could remove if you wanted to. I bought this a couple years ago and loved it, but as is life, I haven't biked as much as I thought I would and now I could use the money as I am going back to school.

Here's a quote I found about the bike:
"Today I've come to own a piece of American history: a '92 Schwinn-Paramount Precision Cycle (white with purple slime). The leading custom racing bike of its time, it represents the advancement of the art and science of bicycle design and craftsmanship, and the beginning of globalization as a product of the partnership between bankrupt American bicycle-dominator Schwinn, and Japanese technology-powerhouse Panasonic. Only 580 Paramounts were ever made.... These are the highest quality, under-the-radar bikes for those in the know. "

This is an odd duck. Seller says it's a "Motobecane Tour de France" (no such thing), the top tube decal indeed says "Tour de France" (as in Gitane?), rest of the (age worn) decals are Peugeot PX10. Lugs look like the ones on my Motobecane Le Champion.

Perhaps he's under the mistaken impression that Lotus, the English sports car maker, made a foray into the bike business at some point?

Looks like a bargain compared to this




The $500,000 gold mountain bike
(from CNBC)
Most bicycle makers are trying to make their bikes lighter and stronger. But a special craftsman in California is making his bike heavier—and much more expensive. Hugh Power, owner of House of Solid Gold in Beverly Hills, California, has built a thriving business (soon to be known as Gifts of Gold) covering unusual objects in the precious metal. He's made gold fishing lures that are encrusted with rubies and diamonds, gold drinking straws, a gold chess set and a gold guitar pick. He even made a gold toothpick for rapper Snoop Dogg.
"Pretty much everything I create is gold," he said.


Power's masterpiece is a gold mountain bike. He gave "Secret Lives of the Super Rich" an exclusive look at his rolling piece of jewelry.
The bike frame is covered in 24-karat gold, as is the bike chain, the spokes and even the pedals. The bike's logo on the front has 500 black diamonds and 600 yellow sapphires and the seat is covered in alligator skin. The final touch: a custom water bottle made of gold and wrapped in stingray hide.

The price tag for the ultimate bike bling: $500,000.
Despite the blinding price, Power is confident he can sell it.

It does look like a Le Champion or Champion Team frame that had other decals put on it. You may be able to get a nice frame at a decent price.

It's a little under ok for CL, at least in my market. Can that sell for 1500? Yes, on eBay. He's not on eBay. It's hard to sell ANY bike for over $500 on CL.

Odd...especially since most of the 60s ones I've seen do have eyelets. If that sells for even a decent fraction of that price, mine goes up for sale! I think mine is a lot nicer.

Disagree.

On eBay, a full c-record group typically goes for around $1000.

Beyond that, complete bikes often go for around what the parts are worth parted out...nature of the beast. I don't think that establishes this as fair market on CL. If sold as is, not parted out, on ebay, I'd bet it goes for between 1300-1700. Deduct fees, buyer gets a warranty and seller takes on risk of shipping error or dishonest buyer.

If you want ebay pricing, sell it on ebay. I don't know the Cleveland market, but I doubt that would sell complete for anywhere near 1500 in my area, as pretty as it is. The frames aren't that rare and C-record isn't that hard to find.
