COLNAGO Decor Master Olympic 58cm 30th Edition - $1900 (Kendall Square, Cambridge)















58cm measured C-C. Full Campagnolo Chorus group (including hubs). Ambrosio Giro d'Italia rims. Iscaselle Giro d'Italia saddle.

Always stored indoors. I bought it from the original owner in Switzerland in like-new condition and road it on a trip through France, then brought it back here. A few rub marks on the paint from traveling as visible in the photos. (In particular observe there is a mark on the head tube, on the down tube, and on the seat tube.) No dents. Chrome is marvelous shape. Minor wear on the bar tape. I installed the tires August 2014. They have about 500 miles on them, and are in fine condition. One of the more gorgeous bikes I have owned.

I would prefer not to part it out but if I do, identical Decor Master Olympic frames in various sizes and generally worse condition sold on eBay (without headset or bottom bracket) for $1200 on Sept 26th, $1145 on Sept 11th, and $1233 on Sept 24th, in each case plus roughly $100 shipping from overseas. Another in a smaller size is presently available there for $1400 plus shipping. For the frame only I would be interested in something in the range of $1200-$1400.

Pedals not included. (I might have some Dura Ace pedals available separately.) I might be interested in a trade for a Sram/Shimano electronic hydraulic group or cyclocross disc wheels of comparable value. Thank you for your interest.

do NOT contact me with unsolicited services or offers

  3. "Untouched"? I'm thinking "NO"
  4. It's more likely a Windsor or Carabela

But since it's just up the road, I may go check it out this weekend.

Here's the Portland-area listing:

Yeah, something fishy about this one. Cinelli doesn't typically use that decal style for, well, anything, not even their urban bike line. Looks like someone applied those themselves.

I learn something old every day!

Must be two different companies. One Japanese, but the BMX company was in Finland. I'm guessing this is the Japanese company (that appears to have made neat but mostly low-end bikes).

This looks to be a poor-man's Lotus Aero.
I wonder if Jupiter King of Finland had Japan build the bike for them, or like you said were there two different companies? But the more I dig the more it seems to have been two separate companies.

That Raleigh is beautiful; I'm not sure about the part putting the Sturmey Archer hub on;

You know, I think that is the kind of things that Sheldon Brown use to do; so seeing someone doing that and mixing it up certainly makes me wonder. And the Raleigh was purchased in the 1950s.

The guy says he lives in the Wisconsin Dells, those likewise, are very beautiful. You actually see mountains in the distance there.

Tip: I've found that when you see sellers who are obviously knowlegable about their bike say "Columbus tubing" in the description, the frame is invariably Columbus Aelle or Tenax tubing.

Nothing wrong with Aelle or Tenax - - two of my favorite rides are Aelle and Tenax - - but knowing beforehand that the bike is made of midrange tubing can be useful when deciding whether the price is fair enough to justify driving out and looking at a bike.

(Other tells, when taken together, of a midrange Italian are the Gipiemme dropouts and Campy/Japanese parts mix.)

Someone bought it just about a minute ago, or it was taken down a min ago. Not sure if you really wanted it though because it was chrome steel cranks, gears, and I think the wheels were chrome steel too, making it one heavy bike probably around 45 pounds, but all that chrome did make it look pretty.

Yep, all those things are true. I bought it today. It's heavy and there's chromed steel everywhere. Took a train ride out to the cornfields to get it. Rainy days and groceries don't get me down.
