Good man, looks like a real beauty. We just bought a Super a month ago for my oldest son. Nice frame on ours, not so nice fork. Good luck.

For anyone lucky enough to be local in Asheville NC (RB1)

Not a steal, but reasonable and seemingly in primo shape.

The number provided goes to an auto shop in San Rafael, a bit closer. A co-worker said he has a few Fuji's(?) and other items posted. I'll send a PM...

Chrome is cool. Campy and Wolbers are too. 57cm, not cool

Stronglight crankset. Weinman brakes and levers. This bike is smooth and really light for it's age. Call 977-9182 if interested.

Too small. You're likely to be closer to the 57-60 range, or 23-24", I'd guess.

This bike had the original tires with numbs on them until I bought it and replaced them this spring. It turns out that I like riding my mountain bike more so I'm letting it go. I have the original owners manual and everything works great. It's a nice, comfy bike with touring geometry. It would make a sweet winter commuter for someone looking to keep their nicer bike inside. I live in the burbs, but I'm in the city pretty often if you want to meet up.

Got it! Funny story. I e-mailed the guy I'd go up to $150 is it was in very excellent shape, which it is. Couple pics to follow. When I got there I hemmed and hawed, explained the size issue (and yes, it is a little bigger than the Tivoli tugrul, not much, but a little), blah blah. Then I said, "While I wouldn't buy it to keep for myself probably <the jury might still be out on that> if you'd rather not have to have more people come out to look and just be done with it I'll give you the original $100. At $150 I'd have a hard time getting anything more than a pittance out of it for the time I'll put into the cleaning and tuning, but at $100 I could see a little for my effort." He bit, I rolled away with it 5 minutes later!

The paint is in amazing shape save for two little areas. There was a vinyl covered chain around the seatpost...two rice grain size rubs through the primer up there. And, on the DS chain stay, a little chippy slap outside the stick on "chrome" chain guard. Other than that it pretty flawless, the chrome fork crown is really nice. Chain and freewheel need a derusting, general cleaning, heck, the tires are Panaracer Pasela that still have some nubbins on them. He had tires and tubes changed a couple of years ago, rode it twice and it sat since. That's $40-50 in tires anyway. Tubes might even be good yet. I can reuse the cable housings after cleaning. The only thing new needed would be tape, new cables, and a close Duplicolor, which should be doable as it's a metallic candy red.

I currently have it stashed in the server room at one of my clients until I figure out how I'm going to deal with it on the "domestic front" haha!

Here you go:

+1, it was my first mtb and a very enjoyable ride. Crankset should be a Sugino AT. All lugged construction. My 84 had a flat crown fork but I think they went to a cast sloping crown at some point.
