Not high end, but a couple of rare ones. You almost never see a Batavus for sale in this country (I bought mine in Amsterdam) and the Gitane mixte looks like the big 23" frame size.

Two Vintage 60's road bikes-- 60+cm Batavus & Ladies Gitane

Two Vintage 60's road bikes-- 60+cm Batavus & Ladies Gitane - $200



I have two 60's era steel bike in good condition I need to sell. These would make for a fast and easy restoration project, surely.

The men's bike is a coffee-colored Batavus Tour L'Europe, and comes with a frame pump and rear rack. The rear brake is locked up, but other than that it's in good condition. This bike is very tall -- you should be at least 6'2" to ride it comfortably.

The second bike is a women's Gitane, a French bike also made in the 60's that became the quintessential collegiate bike of the era. This bike is rideable as is, but would be a great student bike again with just a few small fixes like brake cables and hoods.

I believe they're both 10 speed. Trying to move them ASAP so feel free to come by and see them or make me an offer.

Regarding that '84 DiamondBack:

*rant on*

"A restored piece of a Mountain Bike History in complete restored to a Single Speed." Seller uses the word restored twice in the same sentence to describe a bike that is obviously not restored. So he made it into a SS by removing various components and now it is "restored?" It's not just this guy, and it does not happen just in bicycle ads. That is all. Thank you.

Bianchi in Elwood, Indiana, near Indy and Kokomo. I don't know much about Bianchi, but this one looks nice, and it's my size too.

Bianchi Nuova Alloro road bike

[h=2]Bianchi Nuova Alloro road bike - $425 (elwood)[/h]

Very nice condition. 1984 Celeste Bianchi, 56cm seat post, 55cm top tube. 700c Mavic wheels, new Continental Gatorskin tires. Campagnolo Nuovo Record derailleurs and shifters. I changed the original bars to Cinelli, I will include both bars. I put hoods on the brake levers and changed the bar wrap to softer cork. Bike is perfect and ready to ride.

I believe that belongs to a forum member, and my bank account is very, very glad it is not my size.

Contact via CL email only, it appears. Done and did it; don't really expect I'll hear back, but you never know. Thanks for stepping up.

Vintage Racing Road Bike 22" Copper Frame - $200 (Denver)



Vintage 10 speed men's road bike 22" lugged frame complete copper frame with small brass fittings; campagnolo, sugino, mac equipped, leather saddle, 27" wheels new tubes, chrome fork ready to ride. Vintage rare nicely equipped.

Link

This is interesting. Mix of Campy and Mafac, with a (replacement?) Sugino crankset. Lugs look a bit crude to me. I can't make out what remains of the headbadge. I'm guessing the internal routing on the rear brake cable is a later addition.

Not seller, etc.

I was tipped about that Voyageur by (surprise!) the guy who sold me my '87 Voyageur, about a half hour after it was posted.

Have e-mailed him twice, no response.
