Would anyone like some old Campy high flange wheels with a bike attached to them?



Or a not-pristine-but-looks-all-there full Shimano Sante-equipped Cannondale for only $100?? (I may check this out for the Sante groupset alone)



And for the tall riders like me, a gorgeous and ready-to-ride 1982 Miyata 710.



And finally, a vintage high-end Trek 760 makes its appearance here in the Seattle area. Trek had several colors that were just "meh" to me and this red was one of them. Frame is scratched up (owner says), but there is a heap of 9s Dura Ace including the downtube shifters. You get a lot of bike for the good amount of money. Adjust the stem/bars down and round out the 7700 DA groupset with those gorgeous cranks, which, for the last few months, are everywhere. I can't decide on whether to buy and store up these cranks (and 12-23 9s DA cassettes), which can be found for very reasonable prices, or to let them be. I already have three sets with two on bikes. If you know how to install those Octalink V1 BB-interfacing cranks (not hard), they will serve you well.

$800 is steep for a 1985 Trek 760, even with the DA bits. The sale price trend for these is about $400-425 on ebay. I recently sold my 1983 Trek 760 with full Superbe for $400.

The Sugino XD2 cranks are very nice, just bought some for my Bridgestone XO-2, but haven't installed them yet.

It indeed is steep. And since we live in Expensive Bike Corridor, I went back and priced all the items individually according to his description and worked that into what they could be found for sale at a place like Recycled Cycles and CL. He has a lot of new or very nearly new pieces--and many are very nice quality, so the depreciation curves haven't had a chance to take any or much effect. The DA stuff has comfortably depreciated to "decent price" levels. The wheel build, which includes a superb lifetime warranty (they do great work--I've had a set built up by them), will have been 200-250. The saddle is a lot, the crank is a good bit, the RINGS are a lot.

By my approximate LBS and fair market value research and assessment, all individual pieces minus frame/fork/headset are nearly $950. Add in a worn 760 frame/fork/headset and I'd put approximately $150 due to high end tubing/geometry+pedigree+Seattle+vintage Trek and a la carte we're in the $1100 ballpark. "Group rate" (aka assembled bike) discount and $800 doesn't look as bad, though the frame condition will make it a tougher sell to many people. If he ran a 7700 crankset instead of the Sugnino+Zephyr rings, the price could be roughly $75-100 less, which would bring more eyeballs to it. As it stands now, he'd be losing a good bit of money that he just spent on the bike--no time to amortize the cost of the parts.

I think $400 for a 760 with full Superbe would be a great deal--and an extremely beautiful one. There's a great condition 25" 1986 Peloton on ebay for $350+$75 shipping that of course has me looking at it. Another Peloton!

Congratulations and glad it all worked out with the seller. You did it in grand style. I'm envious and that green one is spectacular. Would be great if you could share your story.

I was looking at that Peloton myself, not sure about that fork (Wasn't the orig. white?) and at 63cm just a bit too high for me - I usually top out at 62... Sanity temporarily took over so I've moved on - until I see the next bit of eye candy.

I'm not sure about the fork either. It isn't stock, but is accurate to the era. That semi-sloping crown, lugwork, and the security nubs are dead ringers for a 1984-1985 Super Sport. And being that Schwinn chromed a few things on the SS like the fork (underneath the paint), it could very well be an SS fork. At least it would then still be in the family. This also may explain the lack of tubing decals--probably a Tange chromo piece like they were during those years. The bike is built up well, but not original in fork or components. I'm passing on this one as well.

Really, really want one of those b/w Pelotons. Either a 24" or 25" would be just fine. But it's going to have to be original and nearly perfect. And relatively cheap.

Which means I'll probably never get one

I had to double check that one and you guys are correct. The Peloton should have a matching Columbus fork.

Interestingly, the '89 Circuit I am building has similar Columbus SL/SP frame tubing but came from the factory with a plain chrome Tange fork that year. Go figure.

Authentic, vintage Indonesian Pedicab (Becak). Everything is original and in working order. You will probably not find another one of these in the United States!

More pictures at link, only $100, and steering? Still, interesting. Looks to me like the handlebars or something are needed.

Wow. Been looking for a Voyageur frame in that size to be redone in 700/650B configuration with reset canti mounts.

Anybody in Minneapoilis willing to give me a hand on this one?

Frames are fairly easy to send, I'd directly write the seller if you are interested. If he can't help, I will see what I can do. I note, the seller does not say what part of town he is in but I would aid this if it was necessary.

Also, bike shops in the Twin Cities are Eric's, Penn Cycle, around forever, a number of bike shops might help.

I looked at the pics as I was interested, and could get the frame back to my location fairly easily.
However, that kickstand install doesnt look good.

Concorde, this looks nice, there are a number of good deals on now. But I won't spoil DQRider's searches for nice bikes, he is a real connoiseur though the bike shed might be getting full.

Heh heh... you won't spoil anything, @CuttersRidge.

My project queue is full and my shop runneth over. Besides, this Concorde is too new to interest me. I'm a quill-stem C&V guy all the way.

When I'm done building the two frame-up roadsters I'm working on, I have improvements to do on all the rest. That should see me through until Spring. (I hope...)

This Peugeot U08 is almost done:



I took it out on a shakedown ride by Hastings yesterday, then broke a spoke only 8 miles into the ride, so I had to cut it short. But I'm working on a chainguard for it, and maybe I'll put my PDW Takeout basket on the front to carry my camera gear, and it will be complete.

This frame looks pretty tasty:

Vintage Peugeot Frame MINT 54cm Reynolds 501



If it were $50 cheaper, I'd jump on it and move all the alloy parts I just put on the U08 over to this one. But I'll leave it to you guys. Good hunting!
