1950s Urago in Davis, CA for $450 - looks like it might clean up nicely, and has a neat derailleur system!

Thanks very much for posting this!

Have had the same model & year snoozing in me racks for nigh on to thirty yar.

It is deep blue and about 53-54cm. Nearly all original.

Research led to an estimated date of ~1957.

Oh, wow. Just my size and I've been craving a Mercian lately. What a pity I don't have the cash and am several hundred miles away!

Nice! A brand that deserves more recognition on this forum, if only because of their 'fake Colnagos'.

As a matter of fact I do. Thanks for the heads-up.

Lovely Mercian, BTW. If it were for sale near me at that price I'd be all over it.

Typical for the Twin Cities. A decent bike for a decent price is gone almost immediately.

Somec Promax road bike Columbus Max tubing Campagnolo components 54cm - $750 (Greenpoint)

Somec Promax road bike Columbus Max tubing Campagnolo components 54cm



Selling a bike that I bought for my lady, but she ended up wanting something a bit more relaxed. Super awesome and rare Somec Promax, 54cm seat tube, 54cm top tube, both measured c-t-c, with Campagnolo components (mostly Chorus, with a Centaur right shifter. 2x10 speed. Fillet brazed Columbus MAX tubing (fork is MAX as well, but was not original to the bike - the original owner bought the frame sans fork, and had a custom one made). Paint is amazingly Italian, with lots of fun airbrush details. Geometry is nice and tight, and the bike tracks perfectly straight and is super responsive as you'd expect. Components have been used, and although they work fine, the front shifter sticks a little when shifting...with new cables, it would likely resolve the issue. Not terrible, but full disclosure is good Bars/stem are both Cinelli. Seatpost is a Nitto, and the saddle is a Selle Italia Flite (rare white version too!). Chris King headset. All in all, it's a rad little bike - tons of fun, and super rare!

Price dropped to $750 cash. Sorry, but no lowball offers, and please include your # in emails. I will not travel to sell the frame, but shipping can be arranged.

Rare Vintage Concor Sprint Racing Bike Track Saddle Seat Banned - $120 (Brighton)

avoiding scams
The almighty Concor sprint. Banned from track use because it gives the rider an advantage in leverage.

This one was in amazing condition but was in one accident so the back corner is scuffed. Purchased for $250 used. Yours for half of that.

Here's a nice looking Team Miyata in Madison, WI for $200, the seller says he will also throw in a NOS Ultegra crankset. Love the paint.

Seller hasn't pulled the listing. That one has been in my basement for a month waiting for the snow to fly.

Wonder why Schwinn had to fit a Huret Success front mech on this. Something to do with seat tube angle most likely...

Do the Schwinn experts know?
