[QUOTE=jet sanchEz;18972361]I responded to this ad a couple of days after it was posted and then again a couple of weeks ago---haven't heard anything.

Try the phone number. I've found that when there's a phone number listed on CL it's sometimes the only way to reach the seller.

I've found a growing number of people who won't respond unless you call and a lot of times you need to leave a message. Then, if you sound sketchy or can't speak decent English when they answer or you leave a message, you won't get a response.

That just happened with a straight Moser I picked up for $25 minus wheels and FD/RD a few days ago. When I walked up, I told the guy I was shocked the ad had been up for several hours and he hadn't sold it yet. The guy was really frank and told me, "I put in the ad, if you're serious, call, don't email or text asking for more pics. I received several emails and a few voicemails and you were the first person who sounded normal and serious, so I called you back... and now you get the bike".

It wasn't the nicest bike in the world but it's straight and has potential. 80s Francesco Moser Sprint - Album on Imgur

If anyone is near Farmington, NM this is a lotta bang for the buck, $500 for a Giordana with Chorus and a very shiny Record crank

Get it before that fork damages something or falls and chips. Poor thing.
On the other hand, it's easily worth the $400.

I'd probably just pay the guy and say thank you.

It's a cool frameset.

It's reversible (so are the decals), as you can see in the 3rd picture.

It's a 1973 Raleigh Competition with Capella lugs. The frame is 531 with stays and fork. The hanger looks intact is going to be a Huret with the stop at 4 o'clock. You can buy or make a stop to move it back to the standard Campagnolo 7 o'clock position.

The crankset looks like a 116 bcd TA Specialites that has been painted. Those were standard cranksets in '73 and '74 for this bike, I think.

The fork is original and is a copy of the Cinelli sloping fork crown. The GB stem is also original.

If you go look at it, the fork tips should be chrome. Scratch the blue latex off with a fingernail to check.

Other than that, the standard color was black, and that's not a hard one to rattle can given the auto paint selection. It's worth the $100, but I'd try to get a bargain. Let me know how it goes........

Looks more like '76 based on decals and serial number. I do agree that it's over priced, maybe $1000 if it's in good condition (hard to tell from the photos) but based on all the rust on the brakes and bottle cage I think not.

I think I posted this one in this thread but, if not, for $500 this is a pretty good deal on a large De Rosa in Mechanicsville, VA

61cm De Rosa Road Bike Columbus SLX


It's my size and within ten miles of me but I'm not interested. It's been on CL for weeks and I believe the guy has several others, all fairly nice and reasonably priced if the ads I see are all his. I don't track how many of them move off CL but the ads seem to hang around. Probably a flipper, but if he has what you want...


Keep after him. I can go check it out for you if necessary.

$375 Centurion Pro Tour 56cm in Phoenix


Not a spectacular price, but about right. Mostly I'm posting because this is such a great bike! Chrome lugs, touring geometry, purple and gray, bar-cons, etc. etc. Not cantis and 27" wheels, but still if I had one riding bike this might be it.

That's a solid $100+ under value in a decent market. It isn't a flip price, but it's an attractive buyer price. These are top flight, desirable tourers with some really beautiful details, and the post mounted center pulls are very, very cool and somewhat rare.

Looks like a weird mish mash of parts, and I don't think the price is incredibly attractive (though fair), but it's still reasonably interesting.



Ochsner Vintage Bike 1980's - $550 (19130)



image 1 of 3








craigslist - Map data OpenStreetMap



(google map)

condition: excellent
make / manufacturer: Ochsner
size / dimensions: 21" or 53.5 cm frame




Ochsner Vintage Classic 1980's. 21" (53.5cm) frame. Frame is in excellent condition, needs just new cables and tires.

"Ochsner is a private company in Illinois founded by Orthon Ochsner, a Swiss bicycle racer from the early part of the 20th century (1919-1921 in competitions) who emigrated to the US, had a long career as a chef and manager of resorts and clubs, rode bikes into his 80's, and founded his company with his wife from their suburban Chicago home in 1969 after he retired (he was then in his 70's). They imported bicycle components and by 1975 had become the Campagnolo distributor for the US. The company is now owned and run by his son, who also collects classic cars and bicycles. In the early 80's, around 1981 or 1982, the Ochsner company imported a Swiss-made frame that they had built by a company called Royal (?) which came in two models and multiple sizes. The frames were made from Columbus tubes, lugged and brazed and all painted blue and prominently labeled as Ochsner."

^^The Oschner order forms we would get at the bike shop were always interesting. Bike frames included Tigra, and the house brand Oschner, Toblerone chocolates, Simichrome polish, and an assortment of cookbooks. And the whole assortment of Campy including the wine opener.
