RB-T!!! I'd buy this if I didn't already have a '94 in the same size.

* Bridgestone Synergy road/touring bike 62cm *

* Bridgestone Synergy road/touring bike 62cm * - $245 (Rustburg Va)





This is a vintage Bridgestone RB-T synergy road/touring bicycle. Its a fine Japanese made bike circa 1991. Very stable and comfortable.

62cm lugged 4130 steel frame - best for a person over 6'0 depending on a few other factors.

This bike is well equipped for commuting, light touring, road rides, gravel/soft surfaces, even cyclocross. It would also be nice with a set of panniers mounted.

Here are come specs:
- 4130 steel frame and a Cr Mo fork.
- 27" alloy wheels
- 21 speeds.
- Index shifting "Barcon" bar-end shifters (Very nice)
- High level Suntour derailers.
- Nice Suntour cantilever brakes.

I have just completely refurbished this bike in my shop. This Bridgestone has been equipped with new multi-surface tires (perfect for any condition), new brake pads, a new chain, new handlebar tape and it has been fully tested and tuned. The wheels were also trued and serviced.

This is a great bike for not too much cash. These older Japanese steel frames can't be beat in ride quality and comfort. Its the best bang-for-your-buck around town. $245. Call or text show contact info Thanks and God Bless. Nathan with Nate's Bikes.

I'm assuming all the Bianchi nuts have seen this already. My pockets aren't even close to this deep, and if they were, I'm not sure I could justify the price. Not to mention it hasn't even met reserve. Makes that one from back in June look great. It even had a matching kit!

Those Schwinn Voyagers are sleeper bikes, I don't know why they go for as little as they do because they are actually fantastic bikes that back in the day were the number one choice for touring, and the frames and components were top notch.

That particular bike in this ad seems to be in really nice shape on top of it, plus it's a common size bike that fits a lot people. If I lived in the area and didn't already have one I would at least go see it and probably would buy it.

VITUS 992 Classic Road Racing Bike 52cm

A lot to like on this, but too small for me. If it sits, I may need to have a look-see as a donor though.

Not cheap but looks to be original:

60cm Peugeot PX10 Professional - Reynolds 531, Ideale, Simplex

60cm Peugeot PX10 Professional - Reynolds 531, Ideale, Simplex - $450 (Adams Morgan)





condition: good
make / manufacturer: Peugeot
model name / number: PX10
size / dimensions: 60cm

Selling a 1972 Peugeot PX-10, size 60 cm (perfect for someone 6'0" to 6'4"). This was THE top of the line professional racing bicycle of the era winning the Tour de France, and it is still an amazing ride today.

This particular bike (1 of 2 I am selling, the other is 56cm) was purchased brand new in 1972 by a couple that worked at NASA's Langley facility. They stopped riding years ago and sold the bikes to me. Unfortunately, I don't have the time to ride it and would rather see it ridden by someone else than just sit in storage. It has recently been cleaned and looked over. The rear hub needs to be serviced and the tires need to be replaced (it's probably easier to just get a basic set of new wheels).

This bike is unbelievably light, sturdy and fun.

- 60cm frame with chromed fork and rear dropouts
- Stronglight 49D crankset
- Simplex derailleur and shifters
- French Ideale saddle (great condition for its age, equivalent to Brooks but more rare)
- Normandy hubs
- Lyotard 45CA Alloy pedals

Classic bikes like this don't come around often.

Price is pretty firm. If the wheels were in top notch condition, I would be asking $700+.

Cash only. Please include a phone number with any email inquiries.

If it was my size I would drive the hour and 20 minutes to go get it. I could go buy it and sell it for at least $250 in the spring in my market but it is just too far to go for a flip.

Crappy pix, but the bike might be very nice.

Vintage 1984 Team Fuji

Vintage 1984 Team Fuji - $350



condition: excellent
make / manufacturer: Fuji
model name / number: Team Fuji
size / dimensions: 24 inch frame


Very nice bike. Very tall bike, meant for sombody that is 6'2"-6'3". Mostly original parts. The paint is original victory blue and yellow. The pedals are not original but correct for time of original sale. The seat is not original but a very nice Vettn saddle. The rest of the bike is original.

The bike was tuned by a youth mechanic. The tires were trued, braked adjusted, gears cleaned and the derailers adjusted.

A good value if it's in ready to ride condition and free of damage. It might sell slowly, due to the size. If it was local, I'd run to see it.

Here's how you can tell when you're over being insane about bicycles: you can pass on one you really like in your own size. This PX would fit me and I want one. Not bothering. My old neighbor was selling one just like it a few years ago. Was not tempted. I'd also like to have that tall Fuji I posted but *yawn* have other stuff to do today. Seriously, there must be one out there that will get me to consult the bride on a "must have" purchase but I don't see that coming any time soon. I'm not looking forward to eating my words but am willing to do so.

I'm going to test this theory with a very nice DeRosa in my size that's being sold on ebay that closes tonight that I could probably get because it has a high shipping price, but also free local pickup, and it's local to me. Logic tells me that it doesn't provide me with anything I don't already get from my Tommasini and my Paramount. But it's a very nice DeRosa in my size that's local.

I was watching that one too, but a shade too small for me. Good luck!

Cool bike.

I would have those Rube Goldbergs off there so fast it would make your head spin.

That stem looks iffy at best.

A nice set up of Noodles/Nitto Pearl and a person would be good to go.

Here are a couple of Houston CL listings that are pretty interesting for these parts. We also just had a clean 1984 Fuji Team posted for $115 today but I see someone has already snagged it. Someone here maybe?

1988 Resto-mod Schwinn Tempo $400

Looks to be well done which makes it a pretty good deal considering the components that come on it. I know my frame up Tempo build exceeded this amount when I tally everything up.
1988 Schwinn Tempo hotrod road bike..


1990s GT Force Road Bike $125
Looks to be aluminum although I've read that this model was made in steel as well. Kind of a neat looking bike.

I find myself inexplicably drawn to this bike, even though I hate unicrown forks and prefer lugs to welds. Would someone please talk some sense into me?

Pretty sure this is a low end gas pipe Peugeot with a high dollar name. Course the vintage UT Registrarion sticker probably adds another 25%.

There are threads on Peugeot's 103 Carbolite tubing you can research on this.
