vintage. french bicycle and free parts

One doesn't see Terrots very frequently, old traditional maker of bikes in France many years ago or so, LA license on it from decades ago. Looks like a fun project at not too high of a price. It looks like a cotterless crank, maybe not that old.

I think that is a shadow on the downtube, in ways, it almost looks like a ding or something.

Albany, and not Corvallis

Corvallis is just about within my range. Albany is just out of my range.

I think those are rusty steel cranks, and I think I can see cotters. They may have an aluminum alloy spider.

Anyway, an interesting bike, but I think I'd need a few more details. Tubing marks? Weight? Whole pile of detailed photos.

Really nice art on the lugged headtube.

Well, I sort of meant to say Corvallis Craig's List and this was where it was found.

When one looks at vintage cycling posters of French bike ads, Terrot shows up. This looks really good if they still have it after a month.


Some decent photos in the below thread, it's a classy marquee.
Forum Tonton Vélo ? Afficher le sujet - "Terrot"

Albany is not far from Corvallis, I said that since we are a national forum, I just said Corvallis so no one would get confused because Albany New York is much more famous.

I've gotten to where I don't really like to travel far unless it really has my curiosity.

Some places are getting fairly good delivery services by van for these kinds of transactions, it exists in the UK. It's a bit of a hassle to be chasing bikes I know.

Yes, Corvallis is close to Albany.

But, the life of being car-free.

Corvallis is about 50 miles from home, 100 miles RT which hits about my limit for towing.

Albany would be about 70 miles from home, 140 mile RT, and that extra 40 miles IS VERY HARD, especially when towing (plus the "extra" stuff they said they'd throw in to weight me down). Now, it didn't say what side of town, North, South, East, West?

The bike itself does look interesting, but with a mix of features that makes it difficult to place. And, many manufactures made a wide range of bicycles.

The 50's, 60's, and maybe early 70's were a big transition period in 10-speed bikes, and perhaps a period of differentiation between city bikes and racing bikes.

I have difficulties recognising the different Nervex lugs without closeups and multiple angles. If it is, in fact, Nervex Pro, then the frame would probably be worth the asking price.

Speaking of Peugeot, there's this 70s UE8 for $125 right now in the ATL area. https://atlanta.craigslist.org/nat/bik/5515757378.html

Looks to be all original, front light is busted and rear light looks like a replacement, round knobs are broken off the brake levers (typical). Otherwise looks fairly decent.

In extreme cases, I will email a seller and ask if something can be worked out, does he/she ever come to my town or something like that. Meet halfway in between, etc.

I did once buy a bike on ebay but the seller was only about 120 miles away or so; and some van delivery service was used.

But I'm not a big buyer or seller, I mainly enjoy talking about them and have my meager few. I did find something unique a few weeks ago and prior, it had been quite awhile that I looked for a bike.

Raleigh Supercourse - Bike is good riding condition. New Tires.

I used to ride this bike to school, but I recently purchased a different one. It comes with a U-Lock, distance meter on the front wheel, and everything you see in the pictures.

I'm 5'10, and the bike fits me perfectly on the lowest seat setting. It can be raised if you're taller.

Contact me to arrange a test ride. Only $125 or best offer.
I picked this one up. I emailed the guy last night just after it was listed. Figured it was too good a deal to pass up. It was just really dirty, headset was loose, front hub bearings loose, wheels out if true and brakes barely working. An hour labor and its one outstanding ride. Even has newer Schwalbe Marathon tires. Needs nothing. And the paint is in great shape.

And I dig the Huret Multito!

Awesome! Glad it went to a good home. It was tempting me too much for my own good.

I was just looking at these and noticed that the label on the box says they're Swiss threaded. May want to confirm with the seller to be on the safe side.

It does say Right-Right in the ad. But, you're Right, better to confirm.

I always have troubles spelling Peugeot, and often confirm the spelling before posting anything. It does throw off those searching for a bike though.

So far, no response on that one I found though. The ad is still up, so I'm still hoping, even though it is in a tough location to get to.

I've never been happy with E-Bay's decision to no longer support the wildcards, and am not certain their search function is all that stable as is. I often try to put common variants using a comma which was supposed to work as an "or" function, although sometimes I get fewer results rather than more.

Craigslist does use the "|" for the "or", and seems to work very well.

Getting the spelling wrong does really do a number on the search engines.

Reynolds 531 Free Spirit, is this maybe one of the highly sought after bikes? Contrarian Grail Bike?

Plain 531 or Double Butted, whatever, I think I've heard this one talked about and it's been up a month. Ted Williams.

In addition to the comma, I enclose the searched items in parentheses. I.e. (tommasini,masi)

Nice looking bike but optimistic on price. If it were 100% original in that condition I would think someone may bite at $1500 but with the non original components, I wouldn't expect it to go for more than $900 - $1000. For some reason, Internationals seem to sell for much more than their production numbers would dictate.
