I can see a few obvious problems (the left shifter, crusty saddle and tires, etc.) but nothing fundamentally wrong overall.

If you want it for a parts donor for a Schwinn Prelude, most of the drivetrain should work. But...
  • I'm guessing the brakes will be too long and the wheels & tires too big, depending on the Prelude year.
  • Prelude was a 6 speed and this is a 5 so the rear hub will be a big narrow.
  • It might look a little funny to have a late-80s bike with 1980-ish components, if that matters to you.
Says the frame is 25 I ride a 63.5 so this should be nice. I might just ride this if its worth it and leave all parts. I only want index shifting in my prelude so im looking to swap out either just those parts or the minimal amount needed to have index shifting. Does this bik have index or friction shifting? Whats the worst case scenario with that left shifter? Thanks!

It's only a friction shift lever, should be replaceable if it's not just backward or maladjusted.

I think, if it your Prelude has Cyclone derailleurs and shifters, if you posted them in the for-trade thread you'd have some takers.

Vintage Peugeot PSV-10 62cm Campagnolo Hubs

Vintage Peugeot PSV-10 62cm Campagnolo Hubs - $240 (Richmond)



condition: good
make / manufacturer: Peugeot
model name / number: PSV-10
serial number: 2358238
size / dimensions: 62cm

I am selling a beautiful, though somewhat worn, PSV-10. This is a top of the line, light-weight steel racing bike from the mid 80s (i think... hard to date these things exactly!). I bought the bike in near-new condition about 6 years ago and used it as my back-up bicycle - which means it had sporadic use - enough to know that it rides beautifully (and enough to give its paint job a few dings) but not enough to really wear it down or anything.

All of the parts are original except... the bike came with tubular tires - and at one point someone stole one of the wheels off my bike (joke was on them really -- i mean who uses tubular tires anymore?) but then as luck would have it that same night a really nice guy that I met randomly said "hey i have this great wheel-set from my old racing bike you should just take them." So now the bike has a pair of campy hubs with 'matrix' rims. Otherwise the brakes, shifters, derailers cranks, its all original.

As you will see in the pictures, this bike has been used. The paint job has been nicked here or there - its all cosmetic, but something to be up front about - and you will hopefully see this in the pictures. Otherwise the handlebar tape is a mess - and you will probably want to redo it, and possibly also have the thing tuned up in general. But I just took it out for a long ride today and its still smooth and fast and a pleasure to ride. There are no mounting holes for a rack - as this was a high end racing bike in its day - and thats the only reason I'm selling it - I have a big bike trip planned for this winter and I need a bike that can have a rack on it.

Also - I'm 6 feet tall. The bike is a hair large for me, but I have no trouble comfortably riding it around. Its probably ideal for someone who is more like 6'2" though.

hope someone out there wants this beauty!

Lugged, Reynolds 853 steel frame and fork, with the original Chorus build. I've referred to him with tremendous affection as Barney all these years. The lightest steel bike I've ever ridden.

Rear spacing: 130 mm

Integrated cable guides and braze-on FD.

Frame and fork are in very good condition. No dents or dings. Paint has a number of small chips.

Components:

Chorus 9-speed
Cranks: 170 mm
Chainrings: 53/39
Wheels: Chorus hubs to Mavic Open Pros, Wheelsmith built
Chorus brakes, BB, HS

Components are in very good condition.

Wheels are in fair condition and are true, tight, and smooth.

Specialized Expedition - classic vintage touring bike - $650 (Center City)



image 1 of 5




condition: excellent
make / manufacturer: Specialized
model name / number: Expedition
size / dimensions: 60cm




The Specialized Expedition (this one is 1984) was one of the best touring bikes ever made, considered superior to the Trek 520, Miyata 1000, etc. Size: 60cm (large).

Beautiful lugged steel frame, lightweight, comfortable, but can carry a full load. Amazing specification includes routing for internal wiring in the downtube as well as three bottle holders (long before this became standard). Good tire clearance and braze ons for fenders and racks.

The bike is in completely original condition apart from saddle, cassette and tires.
- Shimano cantilever brakes, Superbe levers
- Nitto bars and stem branded Specialized
- Suntour Mountech derailleurs and Suntour downtube shifters
- Sugino AT crankset
- Super Champion 700c rims, Specialized hubs
- Blackburn rear pannier rack
- Sakae fluted seatpost

Not pictured: It also comes with the original bottom bracket dynamo and headlight, which still work and are now increbibly rare. A kickstand is also included.

I ride this very occasionally because it's such a great bike but otherwise it hasn't been used much for years, so still in superb condition. Selling it because I'm moving soon and decided not to take this with me. Perfect to ride as is or could be updated with modern components for the ultimate touring bike. Not many of these were made and they are now very hard to get hold of.

$650 cash (no trades). If the ad is still up it's still available. Please include a phone number in your response.

Thanks for looking.

Shorter chain stays definitely.

A jolly nice bike.


Colin Laing, 58cm, Vitus 971 tubing, racing wheels Campagnolo hubs and Campy record nuovo set, adorned with hearts on lugs and components similar to the clubs on Colnago. This is a rare, one of a kind bicycle. Made by Colin Laing of England. Deserves a better home than I can give it at the moment. No dents or rust a few scratches nothing serious. Needs new shifter cables. Amazing Shape. Please do not text or email me if you're a serious buyer give me a call. No trades. Priced for a quick sale. The following parts are less than three months old
This bike was for sale on CL in Annapolis, MD around a month ago - I actually mentioned it on this forum thread. It started at $700, and then dropped to $600. Now it's in Monterey, CA - must be a Navy man's bike.

Miyata Pro - Suntour Superbe and Shimano 105

https://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/bik/5826866605.html

Selling my rare Miyata Pro bike. Made of lightweight double-butted chromoly Cr-Mo tubing with special Aero design, this is a great bike, rides beautifully, needs nothing. This is either a 1982 or 1983 based on Miyata's catalog. I've owned this bike for 15 years, enjoyed riding it and now it's time to let it go. The bike is exactly how I bought it, but previous owner upgraded some things so it is not all original parts.

MORE PHOTOS HERE:
https://www.flickr.com/photos/742148...57673045638331


Paint does have some scratches, but still looks great and is very clean otherwise, see pictures.

Pickup only in Alameda CA 94501. I do not want to ship this bike, pickup only, thanks.

Frame size: 57cm (seat post measures 22.5" from center of bottom bracket to top of seat post tube).
Upgraded with Shimano 105 brakes, Mavic wheels, Specialized 700-23c redline tires, Shimano Deore headset. Wellgo pedals.
Original parts still include neck, handle bars, seat, seat post, Sugino Mighty cranks, Suntour top-mount shifters, Suntour Superbee Pro front and rear derailers.

My wife got this bike about 10 years ago and it has about 200 miles on it. Stored inside the entire time and has had all cables and housing recently upgraded/replaced just due to age. Wheels are hand built with 105 hubs and 650b velocity rims. 10 speed Ultegra shifters, shimano compact crank and rack and hammered fenders. Top tube measures to about 50cm C to C and seattube is about a 48 C to C. Let me know if you have any questions.

Vintage steel frame Eddy Merckx - $700

I'm exercising great self-control by not buying this one myself.

https://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/bik/5836257084.html

Selling this beauty cause I just don't ride it anymore. Took it back to original parts - Campi, Bindo, etc. Get offers or praises every time I ride it!

Based on the serial number, I think it's a 1985.

They took the Pascoe down off of CL, must have gotten sold; I looked at it, I think it's basic gas pipe but it was a very interesting bike, lovely colors, leather saddle, lamp mount on left fork blade, pump pegs, British bike; but I couldn't bring myself to chase it even at a deep discount.



I found this blog of a fellow working on a similary Pascoe, green; but I looked at those back seat stays and I thought, the way they were pressed together, that can't be good. You'd see that on a Huffy or something.

Brain-Blog ? Bicycle Brain



That said, if I had the money (not much was asked), time, travel; if someone here scored it, I don't think it would be a bad deal. Maybe it's a good bike. Little on here on Pascoes.

One thing I know, Pascoe is actually a Cornish (Cornwall, England) word and yes, it is related to Easter as in Pascua in Spanish and similar terms I'm sure in Italian.
