That's very nice, at times, markets like I've found in Kansas and even some other high profile places, have limited markets. There are not that many bikes around.

It's expensive to pay $400 for a bike but maybe it'd be worth it to the right person.

Slightly wary of HeadShock bikes, but this is a good price. I'll endorse these Serfas floor pumps too.

1974 Schwinn Paramount Track Bike

https:
//milwaukee.craigslist.org/bik/5778981765.html

1974 Schwinn Paramount Track Bike -
$1200 (Milwaukee)
Most of the bike is original Campagnolo Record . The only parts that are not original is the stem (Nitto Jaguar), bars (Soma Major Taylor) and the saddle (Brooks Swallow). There are chips in the paint and most decals are now gone but the chrome lugs and stays are in great shape with no pitting or damage. Any questions please let me know.

Schwinn used that intermittently on several bikes, from the most basic Sprint 10-speed to the Paramount Track.

I had seen a red sprint before, I was a bit aware that they had done that. Thank you for the note!

I saw a Maruishi bike being discussed in the forum, I saw this tall but very well-conditioned bike. Kangaroos on the fork crown, Road Ace Rx6 ; not a good overall picture of the bike, seller error certainly.

It has Ted Williams's signature on the badge! The Splendid Splinter! I was unaware of his partnership with Sears!

Aw man, see what you did? You posted it at 11:22, and it's gone already. (11:56).

I was going to go and look at that tonight...

No worries though - I didn't really need another bike.

I'm sorry about that, I'll keep it undercover, but one never knows, one might have seen it and nicked it too.

Somebody here, you or someone else, got that nice Italian frame last summer. But this did bother me when I saw your post, maybe I will email one ahead of time.

This next one is interesting, only a Gitane Grand Sport, but it's minty in its rebuild and only $100 (entry per Gitane USA - Models/Pictures ) though appears to need more work done to make it a project.
https://milwaukee.craigslist.org/bik/5781305150.html




"Guessing from old brochures its a 1970 Gran Sport Deluxe. Found in a garage several years ago and began the rebuild, moved since and need to clear space. Too many bike projects. Though it's not Columbus or Reynolds steel, paint, decals and condition of frame are exceptional. I have the original steel rear wheel (intact) free wheel spins very nice, front had damaged spokes, but, I do have the rim and hub. Clean up very nice, rims have dimpled braking surface. I have original shift levers, and cottered crankset, but, have a beautiful Stronglight 93 crank and bottom bracket Im including. Also have a nice set of Simplex shifters with it and a never used, in the box, Simplex rear derailleur. Original bar tape even looks perfect. Lyotard pedals will clean up nice, too. Id also include a set of 27" newer wheels I had purchased awhile back with quando hubs that with some bearing repacking, and some spacer work, seam to fit real nice. Id love to finish this one, but, would rather someone did vs sitting in my loft space. Bike in picture was just roughly put together for visual purposes."

I think I was just reacting to the shock I felt when I clicked on your link and found it already gone. I had spotted it over the weekend and was going to email the guy during lunch today. Gotta move faster than that on the really good deals. You just did what everybody does on this thread - and the deal goes to the swiftest. Really, no harm done.

Does anybody know whether that is a quality bicycle or not? I imagine the frame is premium, but who knows what components they hang off them?

Oh, and the frame I scored last summer was made in Mexico by a Scottish cyclist on the 1968 British Olympic Team, out of British (Reynolds 531) tubing, patterned after Italian frames of the period (circa 1974), for an American bike shop in St. Louis. The model was called "Raysport Turismo".

I am building it up in Ye Olde English Roadster tradition especially for the Lake Pepin 3-Speed Tour. Once I hang a Sturmey Archer internal gear hub off the back, it is pukka enough to qualify for the `Tour, according to our Shirt Tail Organizer. I expect it will be quite a bit lighter than the big DL1 I rode this year. And I'm going to use brakes that actually work! I've designed custom graphics for it that I've had made into decals, and I'm going to paint it myself: sage green with almond cream panels on head tube and seat tube. I can already see it finished when I close my eyes...

Why did I just spend $XX on brakes and derailleurs for a bike frame when there's a complete bike of similar quality across town for that price? Sigh...

These lower end Frenchies sit forever before they sell. There's a similar Jeunet on the Chicago CL. I've had my eye on both for a while.

This '1984' Schwinn Peloton (really a 1985) has been up for ages. The coolest and craziest thing is that the head badge date stamp is 1215, which is exactly the same as my 1985 Peloton, which is also a 25". These were most likely in the same run, and I would think their frame serial numbers would be very close. At $300+shipping (can't calculate somehow?), with essentially every component there--this includes a lot of New Superbe Pro--that's a great deal for a gem of a frame. Looks dent free, just need to Goo-Gone the extra decals, compound, and wax the frame, and I'll bet it'll be good to go. Plus you get all that great SP.

Somebody buy this or convince me not to.
