I might outfit them as co-op loaner bikes -

Not sure if I've outed this Schwinn Volare here before, but the seller is starting to get the price down into a more reasonable range. I think he started around $1000. Now he's asking $800.

https://chicago.craigslist.org/wcl/bik/6011356212.html

It seems complete, though perhaps it's mostly apart. Can't tell from the photos. Here's a shot of the frame, fork, and wheels (why, oh, why, do I always get a broken image icon when posting images since the "upgrade"?):

This guy has been trying to sell it for at least a year. He finally seems to have broken down and put it together. Previously, I don't think he was selling it with wheels.

If that guy were a bit taller, you and I would be figuring out how to finance a major buy.

Seems worth it.

I sold one on eBay last year, frame only and without paint for about that price.

It was a smaller frame, and there's certainly less of a market for 64cm frames. But still.

A couple of this seller's listings have been posted here. His current listings are ending in a few hours. Check out this refinished Paramount. I think it's gorgeous. Too bad it's too small for me.

It absolutely KILLS me that I can't afford this right now as it is pretty much my dream bike, and it looks like my size . I really can't though, so I figured I'd pass it on to one of the many Centurion fans here.

I believe this is a Pro Tour for $300 shipped!!!

Here's a Motobecane Champion Team that's been outed here before. Price has dropped significantly since then. From personal experience in building one of these, I doubt you'll see one a whole lot cheaper than this. Shipping is reasonable as well. Not mine, no affiliation, etc.

Doesn't strike me as a very exciting project (Team USA with eyelets and kickstand?), but it might float someone's boat:

I agree. You're not going to find a complete Champion Team in decent condition for less than that. I'm not sure why it's lasted as long as it has.

Vintage 1960s Women's Triumph 3-Speed Bike - $135 (Kempsville, VB)



"Vintage 1960s Women's Triumph 3-Speed Bike (Matching mate to the Men's Triumph bike in my other ad).

Good Condition. Rides fine. Could use some TLC and fine tuning.
Has generator that is driven by the rear wheel, which activate headlight and tail light by pedaling.
The lights used to work, but since it has been sitting a few years, that don't anymore.
It may just be a bulb replacement, wiring replacement or tightening some fasteners."

1985 Schwinn Voyageur Touring Resto-Mod

Don't get lost in the sea of Trek 520s and Surly Long Haul Truckers out there! Stand out from the crowd with a truly special touring machine. Beautifully crafted lugged, chrome-moly frame from the high point in Schwinn's road bike design and production. Smooth and responsive as only a quality steel frame can be. The Voyageur has all the elements of a classic touring bike including "relaxed" road bike geometry with a longer wheelbase for a smoother ride and room for rear panniers, double eyelets on the dropouts for mounting racks and fenders, mid-fork front lowrider rack bosses, 3 sets of bottle bosses, and much more. This fine frame was painstakingly restored and assembled with a combination of new and quality vintage parts. The complete drivetrain, wheelset and tires are 100% brand new and compliment the frameset to give quick, positive, trouble-free shifting. Truly the best of both worlds, the unique ride quality of a fine vintage lugged steel touring frame, coupled with a modern drivetrain and wheelset.

Build Details:
Frame: Columbus Tenax chrome-moly custom blend double butted main tubes, Tange forged dropouts with double eyelets and adjusters (frame was treated with JPW Frame Saver)
Seat tube (C-C): 21 inches; Top tube (C-C): 21 inches
Fork: Tange chrome-moly blades, semi-sloping crown, reinforcing tangs, forged dropouts with double eyelets and front lowrider rack bosses
Headset: Tange New Falcon Sealed
Handlebars: Nitto B132 Randonneur Touring, 25.4mm Bar Clamp Diameter (silver)(new)
Handlebar Tape: Cinelli Gel Cork Tape (black)(new)
Stem: Nitto Technomic 70mm, 25.4mm Bar Clamp Diameter (silver)(new)
Seatpost: SR Laprade alloy micro-adjusting 26.6mm
Saddle: Avocet Touring Anatomic
Crankset: Sugino XD600, 170mm, 8-speed, 46/36/26t (new)
Bottom Bracket: Shimano BB-UN55 68 x 122.5mm (new)
Derailleurs: Shimano Deore RD-M591 SGS (rear)(new); Shimano Deore II (front)
Shifters: Shimano 8-speed, Index (rear) / friction (both), Bar End (new)
Pedals: SR SP-150 alloy road bike
Chain: KMC X8.93, ½" x 3/32", with Missing Link (new)
Cassette: Shimano CS-HG51 8-speed, 11-32t (new)
Brakes: Dia-Compe 981 Alloy Cantilever; Cane Creek SCR-5 Compact Aero levers with gum hoods (new); Kool Stop pads (new)
Rims: Mavic A319 700C, 36h, Silver (new)
Hubs: Shimano Tiagra 4500, 36h, Silver (new)
Spokes: DT Swiss Competition 2.0/1.8 Double Butted, stainless steel, 3X (new)
Tires: Schwalbe Marathon HS 420 700 x 32 (new)
Cables: Velo Orange Braided (new)
Accessories: Jim Blackburn rear rack, bottle cage, kickstand
This low original miles Voyageur has less than 500 easy, non-touring miles on it since the rebuild. Everything has been cleaned, lubricated and adjusted, ready to ride. Shifting is smooth and positive and braking is sure with great modulation. Just toss on your bags and hit the open road.
$575.00 or reasonable offer. A comparably equipped touring bike from the bike shop will cost two to three times as much. Steel is Real!!
