This is a deal, isn't it?



1986 Schwinn Paramount "Rainbow" 50cm Campagnolo Tubular Vintage Steel Is Real | eBay

Sorry, I'm not too conversant with Schwinn values, but it's kitted out right

Black Lightening? I know little about Cannondale but decent looking at $150 either way. Edit. Already down to $120 58 cm appears late 80s.

This Zeus road bike in Utah is ending in 4hrs and looks like it's going to go for $100 + ship. Wheels are worth that, it's not like anything is super-high-end here, but looks all-original.

Frustrating ad, but there could be a decent find in there somewhere.

Is this bike a repaint? The frame looks perfect and the parts don't.

This may be the Victoria model, fitted with the New Racer road ensemble.

This advert is from 1980 and depicts the original version of the model.

I'd call that frame pretty nice, but not perfect. You can see some scrapes and nicks.

Here are two Mercian's
1983 Mercian Reynolds 531 St Lightweight Handmade Bike | eBay
1983 Mercian Campionissimo Green Yellow Campagnolo Nuovo Record Modolo Mavic G40 | eBay

The first has been on Denver Craigslist for a while and could be negotiated down.
This one is also for sale, but less of a deal:

Never heard of this builder, but this is a really appealing-looking bike IMO.

I've been tempted to buy this up for the components, but am thinking of going another way with my next project (Italian/French instead of British.)

Brian Wilkins 53cm frame. TA crank, Brooks, Crane, Mafac, Cinelli. All for $350.

Can't find a lot about these but the frame has my name written all over it. Wonder how much trouble I'd get in if snagged that.

Schwinn Superior

I don't know about the price, but this definitely looks like a great project for the right enthusiast.

Dang, that is very cool looking, I've never seen anything like that before. What would really make people look if you could put a leather racing saddle on it with drop bars, yeah I know not original but it would like a sleek low profile old racing bike.

Anyway whatever you do with it it's a heck of cool looking bike.
