I'd love to get me a Bridgestone with a Sante groupset, but it's a little too much, and little too far out of town.

I was checking out the Chain Reaction bike co-op in Goshen, Indiana today for the first time, and I was able to find the exact SIS 6-speed shifters I was looking for, along with a fork with cantilever studs from a Miyata touring bike for my C&V gravel grinder.

While I was checking out the bikes for sale, I saw what appears to be very clean looking a Follis road bike, with 531 stickers on both the frame and fork and a nice Stronglight crankset with the star shape, Wolber wheels, most likely steel. It was so clean I wonder if it might have been repainted. Anyway, I would guesstimate it being a 56-59 cm frame, and it was priced at $350. I don't have a photo, but you can find out more by contacting the co-op. I know very little about French bikes, but this definitely caught my eye.

1983 Cinelli Supercorsa with Campagnolo 50th - never ridden show bike. Heck, the tires have never been glued on. Yours for only 12,000:

Apparently only given to select dealers - not the general public, or so the owner states is a special set of Camapgnolo belt buckles that he will include if the full asking price is met. What are you waiting for?

You Miyata lovers might like this spline triple budded 914. Same identical frame as the Team Miyata that year.

Whenever I buy bikes that look ragged out I regret it. This Italian Guerciotti looks a little worn out for the price... I started to offer him $300 then deleted the email. It does have more modern components on it though.

Guerciotti 58 steel frame road bike Ultegra Mavic wheels

[h=2]Guerciotti 58 steel frame road bike Ultegra Mavic wheels - $600[/h]








condition: fair
make / manufacturer: Guerciotti
size / dimensions: 58 CM



Unsure of year, but likely late 1980's or early 90's Columbus steel Guerciotti racer. Light as a feather. Ultegra drivetrain with 600 brakes. Shifts clean and needs nothing. Has a newer carbon fork, Mavic wheels. Was going to restore it and make it a sweet daily rider but it's a tad too small for me. I've already rust treated the frame, and with a bit of touch up paint and new tires and the like this could be a badass bike.

Cilo 58cm vintage racing bike - $300
I think it probably is Allele. I have a nearly identical Cilo with a full 600 group in my basement. It was given to me free by a neighbor who was moving. Looks unused but caked in cellar dirt.

Definitely a nice frame, and *very* worthy of upgrading. I always wondered about the Miyata "scaled down" Team bikes. Are these 914 frames really identical to the Team frames? I know they have the same triple butted splined tubing, and same geometry, but are the frames built to the same standard? There is a huge jump from RX100 to Dura Ace. Even though RX100 was 3rd from the top behind Dura Ace, 60 and 105, it was a much lower tier group. More like going from Claris to Dura Ace now.

Wow. Definitely a grail worthy bike, but $12K?!?

NOS Campa 50th Anniversary regularly go for about $2500 (with the suitcase) on the 'bay. That is a super nice frame, but not that rare. They can be had for $1200-1500 in NOS condition. I guess the "1981 Limited Edition Campagnolo Belt Buckle" is worth the additional $8000?

I'd buy it if it were my size, and in my area. Decent entry level tourer's. Mine has Champion #4 tubing, not Tange 900. Evidently they changed somewhere in the one year production run? Seems odd.

mid/late 70s PRN10 (if not mistaken) with weird RD choice at $175, not sure what's up with the suicide levers either. Unfortunately buyer won't allow local pickup and suggests $89 for shipping. Not ideal pricing but not horrific either.

Those bikes are definitely hidden jewels, however, from the photos, which could be an illusion, it appears that the top tube near the head tube is very slightly bent downward, and the fork appears to be very slightly bent back, and in one photo of the fork there appears to be a dimple on the inside of the left blade. Also check the bottom bracket shell where the cable guide is, not sure what I'm seeing but looks like a crack in the shell? I would say that if anyone is interested in this bike to make sure you take a straight edge ruler and make sure the top tube isn't bent, and eyeball the fork carefully, make sure the front wheel is perfectly inline with the frame, then test ride it with no hands at some point to maker sure it's tracking right. The seller then goes on and over glorifies it by implying it was made in Chicago when those were made in Japan, and rants on about how currently there is no frames built today that are superior to carrying heavy loads, and as if no lug bikes are being made today.

I see these bikes all the time for sale for half that price in better condition, if you're interested in a Voyager I would wait and not even look at that one due to the price.

That one has been our CL for quite a while, even longer than that posting. Not too sure what the deal is with it, it's not exactly cheap but it's really not all that obscene either. I put up the earlier version below without cantis while that one was on CL for just under his ask, had a guy contact me within minutes and offer me $100 over my asking price...

What do you mean? That fork is clearly bent. About half way down it curves forward
