Vintage Marinoni Road Frameset 62cm Columbus SLX - $600 (Charlestown/Somerville)

That's absurd. My frame is nicer, and I paid less than that in Canadian dollars just a few years back.

With full 600 tricolor in barely-ridden condition, ready to roll out of the gate.

The bike had sat on Montreal Kijiji at that price for a while (mid-winter, admittedly).

It's a favourite, definite keeper...but pricing on the frame in the ad is well out of line.

I wish this had shown up a couple of years ago, but my nephew has just outgrown his 24. I can probably help facilitate shipping.

Centurion Ironman David Scott 25" XL - $200 (Chestnut Hill)




Centurion Ironman David Scott model. Excellent condition and a fast old school bike. Saddle has scuffs as seen in the pic. Shimano 600 group set. This is a really large frame and it's is just too big for me so I am selling. I haven't ridden it in over a year but just did a quick test ride and it shifts and breaks like it should. The price is firm - I've seen the frame alone sell for $250.

Looks like a transition period Viscount bike, has some Lambert pedal dust covers, etc. Viscount also has a historic tie-in with Viking bikes.

No Viscount has decals like the below. The bike is in the UK. Looks like the so-called Death Fork indeed.

Perhaps I should just not post bikes which look interesting.

I'm not sure how others gauge value of bikes which turn up on CL and eBay, but I suspect I do a subconscious mental comparison with my own bikes. The two I have in my stable which are pretty directly comparable are my RRB and my Schwinn Volare. The RRB was a custom frame (though not for me) built by Ron Boi in the late 70s. No tubing sticker, but probably Reynolds 531 or Columbus SL. Full Campy. Paid $600. My Volare is pretty much all original, first gen Dura-Ace, Panasonic-built Reynolds 531. I paid $500 for it.

Like I said, subconscious. I probably formed a value impression in a couple seconds. Also, I thought the Columbus sticker indicated a lower end tubing set. It was a bit hard to read.

If there's an apology in order, it should be from me, not you. I had no intention of coming across aggressively.
I was just trying to be "clever" as I added my 2 cents. Please don't change your posting behavior due to anything I said.

Seriously, if you had not posted it I never would have gotten to see it. Thank you. I mean it.
And opinions.... no worries, man.

As a point of information, that particular Columbus tubing sticker was from the days before the SL designation. That was the "right stuff", as far as tubing went. You could have seen the same on a '72 Colnago. The frame itself, was nothing remarkable. A good first racing bike, my finishes did not suffer due to poor bike quality. Wheels probably not original, as days of 5 spd freewheels. BTW, I have no relation to sale. I sold my frame in 1974, to a school chum.

Best regards, and KEEP POSTING.
Eric

combine the above = this one may belong in the 'wacky world' thread.

Cool. Then I retract anything I said. Your bike happened to pop up on the Classic Rendezvous list as well. One part of that thread suggested that at least some Torpados and Italvegas of that period were basically the same bikes. I know Italvegas were imported by Ben Lawee. In fact the CR page on the Italvega brand indicates that Torpado was the contractor for at least some Italvegas.

So, again, my apologies for pooh-poohing your bike.

That thing is gorgeous. Don't care if not my brand, but that's a solid price and the chrome lugs on red is incredible. 2cm too tall for me.

I mainly posted the Cierra because you don't see those very often, I really don't know about the brand too much.

If you have a problem with it, report it to the moderator. I'd never seen that brand, was just posting it.

It had an Italian type name, I don't care for a lot of bikes posted here.

Miyata Seven Ten - Vintage - Beautiful - $600 (Providence)




1986 Miyata Seven Ten road bike. 50cm frame made of triple-butted Chromoly tubing. Chromoly front fork, the original Dia Compe GX side pull brakes with Dia Compe Aero brake levers, the original Suntour Cyclone front and rear derailleurs, original anodized Ukai wheels with Sansin Gyro Master hubs, and original Sugino GS-LP crankset. For a bicycle of 30 years, this is a remarkable find given its condition.

Bike has been professionally tuned up with new tires, cables, housing, and bar tape.

Come take a spin!
