I was incorrect saying our church operates The HUB. It is a non-profit, operating separate from Evergreen church for some time now. Don

Track frames and parts. Hard to tell what price. A nice Zeus, 531 Falcon and more. Says all frames are 56cm, but they look larger:

59cm Handmade Falcon custom bike w/ Campagnolo Record 8 speed! - $800 (Allston)










make / manufacturer: Falcon
Up for sale is a handmade custom Falcon bicycle. It is loaded with all the awesome Campy goodness like the monoplaner brakes and a super sweet Vento wheelset w/campy hubs(Super rare and worth about $500 on their own!). The Record shifters shift super crisply and must have been rebuilt before I bought the bike because they shift better than my 10 speed Chorus shifters! The frame and fork are both Reynold 653 which rides like 531 but is lighter! I am only selling because it is slightly too small for me.

Seat tube:
59cm - c-c
60cm - c-t

Top tube:
57.5cm

Let me know if you have any questions or need more pictures. Thanks!
do NOT contact me with unsolicited services or offers

^^^^ Falcon

That's a cool bike, fairly priced IMO wi those parts. Reynolds 653 is good stuff. I think it's a mix of 531c and 753. My Merckx Century is of this and one of my favorite rides.

Somewhat earlier than seller's date. These beasties have looong wheelbases. Owned one in this colour, came with SR Silstar chainset with the 3 degree taper. Suspect original mechs would have been Huret.

1974 Fuji The Ace - first year Dura Ace

1974 Fuji The Ace - Dura Ace, original owner, all stock!

Vintage Fuji Ace Dura Ace with extras | eBay

Vintage Fuji Racer model The Ace (Dura Ace) bicycle complete and original with extras. I bought this bicycle in the late 70s from The Highwheeler in Holland, Michigan. The bike was always too small for me, but I loved the bike so I bought it anyway, and rode with an extended seat post. As I changed to doing a little more ‘touring’ (actually, I was riding to work), I bought a Fuji America, and stored the Ace. Every once in a while, I pulled it out, oiled it, and rode it, the last time being last summer. At that time I put new ‘sew ups’ on the rims. I have made the America into a single speed, and have two other road bikes, so I think it is time to sell the Ace.

The bike remains as it was when I bought it, with the exception of the brake covers which rotted in storage (they have been removed and the brake levers cleaned).

Here are some particulars: The bike was called The Ace because it was equipped with full Dura Ace components including brakes, head set, hubs, crank, and derailleurs (the rear was called Shimano Crane at the time). The rims are UKAI with new sew ups (tubulars). The frame size is 22 ½” and I have no idea why they used an English measure. The frame is double butted chrome moly, with no manufacturer listed (Ishiwata, maybe?). Everything that is not Dura Ace is Sugino or other top quality Japanese. At the time, this was Fuji’s second best bike, with the Newest being the top of the line. You hopefully can read the sales brochure with all the details.

The bike has a few scratches, mostly in the ‘pearl’ coating, and some other wear which should be visible in the pictures. This bike has been well cared for.

Some of the extras are a small can of orange touch up paint (never opened), the original water bottle cage, and, best of all, the original Fuji sales brochure for the bike.

The bike is shown disassembled for shipping. The bike will come shipped in two boxes with the bike and extras in one box, and the wheels in another. I have estimated shipping costs as well as I can and I know it is expensive. I have spent some time packing this.

I am hoping that whoever buys this bike will appreciate it for what it is. Thanks for looking and bidding. Please ask if you have any questions.

The five-piece steel hubs are just one of the anachronistic features on these odd machines.

So basically, according to his story, they're stolen. Nice.

You'd think if he was involved with the Masi Carlsbad operation he'd at least know the correct spelling of Confente!

Cool item, tho.

Ehhhh...sounds like he took trash as a souvenir and is trying to cash in now...I'm cool with that.

Have to wonder about insulting your intended audience though...and the Mario Confenti thing does make it sound fishy.

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
Pity the pictures of the RIH are so small. Hard to identify or even confirm it's a RIH. The shape of the fork does look very familiar, though. Worth checking out if it's your size. If it has a serial number stamped on the lower headlug, it may well be a RIH from the Amsterdam shop and in that case the $600 is well-spent on a hand-built bespoke racing machine, IMO. I'd really like to see more of it.
