Inland Empire Craigslist strikes again!

A fine example of ostentatiously bad taste from the Land of Lifted Trucks.

Does Ferrari or Colnago have anything to do with BP Stealth and their tri bikes?

Battered Trek frameset out in the boondocks. "It's not too terribly beat up, but, there is a sizable dent in the seat tube and the BB shell is also externally chewed up."

https://richmond.craigslist.org/bik/6019725408.html

1983 TREK 600 frame * Reynolds - $65 (Rustburg)




1983 Trek 600 Reynolds 531 steel frame

This would make a good pub/beater bike. It's not too terribly beat up, but, there is a sizable dent in the seat tube and the BB shell is also externally chewed up. see pics of all of this. The BB has been re-threaded to italian threads
Ride a cooler pub bike than your friends, commute on this thing and not worry about it getting stolen.

$65. Call or text show contact info Thank you and God Bless. Nathan with Nate's Bikes

This Serotta in San Fransisco is a bit of a mixed bag as far as components go but I think it is a pretty good deal at $750

Super nice framesets for the $$$$.

Wouldn't take much to straighten this one out......

FWIW Serottas are popping up constantly round the Twin Cities.

I got a "line" on a Legend ti (10 speed Chorus) yesterday that would fit me perfectly and the fellow will trade me for fly fishing casting lessons and a day of guiding.

Thanks for sharing.

Handsome mount.

This looks like an Olympic ca. 1980.

I hate it when craigslist sellers vet the interested buyers. I was interested in a bike and seller asked me 21 questions before denying the sale. What a waste if time.

It's an Eccentric bottom bracket. You're able to rotate it for chain adjustment.

Roger M already mentioned why. Though a minor correction, I would expect shell width is the same however its the diameter thats different.

Not exactly low priced but I think its an interesting frame. Appeals as in quirky and its French blue! I suppose if one had enough parts stashed or extra resourceful in the build, could be fun for the vintage tandem crowd. Anyones guess how low an offer the seller would take, but I would look at $400-500 tops as complete built.
