Seller has them in red/green/white, solid red, and solid blue. Check the auction, the last picture shows variants on the theme.

+1 to that, for multiple reasons. I love to combine photography with my riding, and I find my options are limited when I don't have a kickstand. I have to find something to lean the bike against, and that often means shooting from the wrong angle and not taking full advantage of the light. My only bike without a stand is the Scott Sub-10, and that's only because I can't get one that will fit with the hydraulic disc brake setup - that's where the brake line is routed, and I can't figure out any alternative that would not compromise safety. I guess it's all about priorities.

Nothing personal y'all, I've just had a rash of bad luck this year on lower-end bikes with clamp-on kickstands (ex: chainstay crush).

It's enough of a turn-off that, if I can't clearly see anything that looks like a Greenfield-style clamp-on kickstand ou I can't see there's a kickstand plate, I usually just avoid it entirely unless the asking price is worth 2x-3x the parts.

I hear you there! One of the first things I do with my Greenfield stand installs is add a piece of 1/8" rubber between the clamp plates (top and bottom) and the bike frame. Keeps the stand in place and prevents damage to the frame. Naturally any bike that was worked on by "Adrenalin infused apes" before hand always runs the risk of over tightening damage. I've learned my lesson over the years - never over tighten and never force it!

Fuji vintage mens road bike

Someone should jump on this Fuji Opus III. Looks like kind of a mish mash of parts but could probably be cleaned up and restored into a pretty sweet ride. Pretty cool components on it..

Very nice (I guess) but rather a steep price for just two fancified levers.

Chrome is rusty but it does have Suntour Superbe rear derailleur (not sure about the front) and drillium front gear rings, the components alone is worth the asking price, and they may come down in price.

Saw this on BOBishBikesFS, so apologies to those of you for whom this is a duplicate, but here's a Trek 660 in Watsonville, CA. It looks like it might be 7sp in back, so perhaps the rear triangle wasn't cold set:

[h=2]Miyata 610 TOURING BICYCLE - $175 (white bear lake area, MN)[/h]TOURING BICYCLE



MIYATA brand 610 touring bike with 15 speeds has seen very little use since 1983 when I purchased it. Chrome-Moly frame, aluminum gooseneck, seat post,cranks and rear rack with removable bag. Sun tour components. Has a little paint damage due to improper transport. Could probably use new tires. Needs new handlebar foam. Height from ground to top of frame is 33". It's cost then was $365 so it was a fairly high quality bike. Also have original owners manual. Please call between 8am and 7pm. Cash only.

Not really vintage, looks like a 6600 group but a hell of a price for $600. Too big for me.

Hockey Tape. I wrap multiple layers around the stays, enough so they will compress enough to keep the clamp tight. All it takes is a calibrated wrench hand.

It also works on wider wheels for rim strip replacement.

There isn't much on this bike that is original equipment! This bike obviously never came with intregrated shifters, nor did it come with Dura Ace anything, just what is original on this bike besides the frame? without the original equipment this bike isn't worth anywhere near the asking price.

By the way, it appears to be an 8 speed which means they had to spread the stays.

Agreed nice components. That's a 1st Generation Superbe PRO rear derailleur - note the unmarked alloy pivot bolts. That worth $50-$60 by itself. That drilled Sugino crank was common on the 80's Fuji's - also worth some paper!

I believe that was one of the 80s models? The '78 catalog lists Raleigh 20 30 high tensile steel.

2 sided kickstands also those balancing screws do okay, like on the downtube here. Some of us have hauled groceries home on bikes and this makes it easier.

That's a Raleigh USA bike. They generally look different than the Nottingham made frames and some Raleigh USAs were made in Japan.

1983 Raleigh USA Grand Prix - Pedal Room Such as apparently, this one on Pedal Room, it has the USA styled lettering.

I'm sure one can find pluses for both the American and British (Ireland/Holland) made ones.
