Seafoam Motobecane Road Bike - 57cm - $50 (mission district)

Can't beat the price! I wish I could see what cranks and derailleurs are on it from the pic. I might go look at it in person.

Solida crank is my guess, with the same SunTour Seven steel rear derailleur as the Fuji above. Simplex front?

That's a beauty, and in my size. Lose the Modolo brakes and levers for Campy, and it's perfect. Out of my budget, though. Although I do need an Italian bike to help round out the international stable: Japanese, French, and British are covered.

Probably around 33 pounds (15 kg), which isn't bad if you're going to ride it all day, slowly enough. It's the stuff of fantasies.

Thanks Frankie - frame is sold (hope it was someone here). The sizing is weird - my GC is also stamped M57, and measures 57cm only to the air above the seat lug tang! More like 55cm or so center to center. Only problem is that I ride a true 57 or 58cm, and rode that Masi for 10+ years! Can't do it any longer.

I wish it was a lot closer and maybe closer to $450ish. I mean it looks cool and it is unique but I don't think it is $900 unique.

I don't know how this ended up here.

I am not so sure about this. $325 is almost full MSRP of around $340+/- and these only had a tretubi ChroMo frame with mangalloy stays and fork. It looks like a nice rider but I think closer to 200 is a better deal

Our church operates a non-profit bike co-op. Started as a low income/homeless ministry to renovate donated bikes into good basic transportation since our public transit is so deficient. It quickly grew into a full service bike shop selling new entry level bikes + renovated donations. Used bikes generally are in $80-$375 range, depending on quality and overall condition.

I was in there yesterday saw 2 new arrivals much nicer than the norm for donations. Being offered as donated, not renovated as yet. The Masi Record is priced at $1,000, Don't remember exact price of the RIH, but was under $600. The RIH is a 56 cm frame, Masi appears to be bigger, maybe 58 cm by my eye. Masi has Campy Racing Triple, Veloce 9spd derailleur, Monoplanar brakes with early Ergo brifters. RiH had Shimano 600 tricolor DR's & hubs with Shimano 600 Arabesque crank. Pricing may be a bit ambitious, but it is for a good cause & likely negotiable.
It is called "The NW HUB", located at corner of Broadway and Market in Salem, OR and they are on facebook. Don

That was my thought also. RIH had Reynolds 531 frame & fork. Looks to be newer than the Masi Record, but also doesn't have any Campy on it. I don't know anything about the "Record" model of Masi, so maybe it is priced OK??
