I have for sale vintage Italian made Torpado Italia road bike from the late 1970's possibly early 80's in very good condition. The bike has a 55cm Columbus double butted steel frame, Sachs Huret derailleurs/ shifters, Modolo Corsa brakes, Ambrosio 700 alloy quick release wheels, Miche pedals, Mundial crankset, ITM bars and brand new blue cork bar tape. This is a very sweet looking classic Italian road bike which hard to come by in this condition. Buy either as a daily rider or a collector piece. Sold for cash and pick up only. Please mention name, item, location, a phone number for a response all other emails or texts will be ignored and considered spam.

Great deal.

Heh you gravel riders, here's your cheap entry ticket.

I have one that is full XT up at the cabin.

It'll take Fat Franks.

Just saw a 1974 Gitane Euro Road Bike - Interclub Frame listed for $122. Reasonable??

"This is a 1974 Gitane road bike with 25.5" Interclub frame, European model. Campagnolo Nuovo Tipo hubs, chrome front fork with factory painted trim, Huret rear derailleur, 27" Mavic Module E clincher wheels in excellent condition (appear new with new spokes and no rust, $70-$80 on eBay without Campy hubs), Sugino Maxy crank with replaceable outer chain ring, quill style pedals, vintage Sakae SR quill stem, nice brake cable clips on the top tube. Suntour components and Weinmann semi-automatic brakes. I rewrapped the original Benotto tape to cover the bars and it matches the paint perfectly. Based on the seat post OD, the three main tubes/ triangle are Reynolds 531tubing.
The bike weighs in at 23.5 pounds. The rear tire needs replacing (holds air). Front tire is in very good shape. There are nicks and scratches on the frame but the paint is shining up nicely."
..
I guess with the Mavic Module E (good condition alloy) maybe worth $150-$175??.................But the frame is two big for me.

1989?

Novara Ponderosa - $60 (Tucker,GA)

Vintage REI Novara Mountain Bike




Rad late 80's early 90's Novara mountain bike sold originally at REI in Denver. Has rare Bio-Pace sprocket. Biopace Chainwheels . Has road tires instead of the usual mountain bike tires for lower rolling resistance for street and path use. The front derailleur cable is frayed and will need rigging or replacement. Rear derailleur works correctly. Brakes work good. The seat is pretty ratty. Great recreational bike. Top of center bar is 32" from the ground.

Nothing to get excited about but noticed this partial Viscount project, nor do I know of the seller. I already have one in the works but if by chance anyone is seeking and works something out with the seller, I'm willing to donate the proper original dérailleurs and maybe some other stuff to the cause.

At the going rate, sure is a deal. That said, I've tried them and would rank as the worst of the worst. Even as spares. They disintegrate in temps of 90 degree and even had 10 month old but unused spares break apart. Most poor in mile longevity.
