As stated in the parts listing, those are backside dust covers for the pedal threads, maybe a nice touch but a PITA to most.

Nice Pro, but looks taller than 58cm to me. Same guy also has ads for a scuffed De Rosa with 600 on it and a PX10 that is "mostly original" (except for the wheels, saddle and brake levers). All three in the same price range.

This has been on CL for a good while and was at $375. $250 is more better. Pristine is a bit of a stretch with some rust on the eyelets and a few other parts. It lived at the beach. Big guys bike. Wish it was 1 size smaller.

Any Lance fans still left?

2012 Trek Madone 5.9 - $500 (Springfield,OR)



Actually, it looks like USPS colors, but may be 10 years too new. Hmm... probably well worth the asking price.

It doesn't quite add up though. The rear dropout doesn't look like a 2012 model. But, the fork isn't a 2002 model ether. Hmmm... Maybe 2005?

That Centurion was one heck of a nice bike.
I was tempted, but already have far too many.

If this tandem is anything like the Gitane version that I had, it may not be a bargain. The Gitane was extremely whippy carrying less than 300 lbs. Replaced with Santana.
