For that price, buy it if you are nearby. Looks like a good clean and lube you could triple your money if you don't want it. Baring cracks, dents, rust holes, bent frame.

Damn fine bike and, honestly, if you got the cash, very fair deal to boot.

Motobecane Grand Touring off of that Dayton's CL as well, $160; triple crank. Vitus, that's a good deal, I saw a woman's Grand Touring on it as well.

https://columbus.craigslist.org/bik/5487802776.html

Woman's Grand Touring, $100 for Mixte Fans, darn good too: https://dayton.craigslist.org/bik/5376213360.html

Vitus888, so is that a real steal? I don't know the numbers.

$45 spritzy '70s red Raleigh Grand Prix, maybe they are in some rural area. The spoke protector is so clear, so either that is new or this is a very minty bike at that. Carlton handgrips, everything but a leather seat.

That looks like a Super Gran Tour I once had. I put the Arabesque group on a Peugeot U08 and built the Ross frame into a single speed.

Okay, so what is the story with Ross? I was under the impression that they were just another department store gas-pipe vendor. Then I look them up and find out that yes, in fact, they did start out as a galvanized steel fence post factory!

So did they have any bikes made with high-end tubing and nice components? I've seen a couple on our CL that are selling for reasonable money.

i have a ross "professional" and its a pretty decent ride - but hi-ten all around. they came with better components than they may have deserved- mine also was arabesque 600. these days its probably better to just strip the components and recycle the frame.. but they were not "bad" frames, just average hi-ten from the time.
