pretty neat. there have been some threads on the forums on the XR and it has taken a few different forms it appears - some 26 wheels, some internal routing, some top, some bottom.. some with crss tires out of the box etc. and most people cannot put it in a category: mtb? touring? cross? hyrbid? it is, perhaps, the ultimate all-rounder.

I like the Masi, but dings are a deal breaker for me.

I got up at 4AM last Saturday and drove 950 miles RT to get a full SR Masic GC that was probably in the same batch with that one. I had decided I was going to get a Masi and sell a bunch of bikes I never ride to pay for it, and all of the measurements just came up perfect. I have to say though, I would have been happy if that frame had popped up on my local CL for 200.00. Go get it!

Thought about that Masi for a few minutes. I like my keepers much cleaner though and I already have an 82 Merckx Professional that needs a refinish.

That picture on the wall behind the Masi of the WWII fighter planes looks familiar, isn't that someone from BF?

I'm not a Gitane specialist but I'm suspicious of the English language 531 sticker on a French bike of that vintage especially when there is none on the fork, and of the stamped dropouts on what is supposed to be a full Reynolds frame, but it's probably cheap enough if you want the parts.

Frankie - do you have an idea of the build date for this frame? Which CA "era" would this be from?

Sadly too small for me. It's refreshing to see one priced realistically for a change. One of these is on the short want list.

Good catch. That's an aftermarket sticker roughed-up to look original. Also, if you look at the seat-tube "Gitane" decal, you will notice it is skewed - not a very good counterfeit effort. This looks more like a tarted-up Gypsy Sport.

Dual suspension C-dale with shock woes (surprise, surprise). Still has some nice parts.

Cannondale Super V 900 - $60 (Maple Plain, MN)

Cannondale Super V 900



I bought this bike and had plans to restore but those plans have changed. Front and rear shock need service.

Shimano XT rear derailleur LX front.
Shimano LX shifter/brake levers.
Acera hubs on Sun TL18 rims.
Alivo cantilever brakes.

Thanks.
I guess if it's an 84, that's San Marcos when Joe Starck and another guy were frame builders. It's really within about 10 frames of that blue one according to the serial number. The sizing is the crazy part. It's stamped M57. I always measure center to center and ride a 55x55, and it's 55.25x55.25. They must have measured to the top of the highest point and rounded up!

I've seen this one on ebay, too. Looks like there was a repair job on the drive side rear dropout/chainstay/seatstay.

And someone downgraded the crank to a cheaper, older set.

Oh yeah, sure did! That's an '84 or '85, so it should have either a Sugino Aero DAAS or Sugino AS-LP.

If someone here gets this bike, I've got an original crankset off my 84 Team Fuji that they can bargain for. Can't remember the exact model but it's sitting in the shop.

I just looked at the rest of the photos and the bars and rear derailleur have also been replaced. The SunTour Seven steel derailleur is very basic. Not the best price overall for a bike (my size) but it should not be considered pristine or original.
