Shogun w. Arabesque 600 $120

Horrible photos, but the arabesque rear derailleur is in clear focus.

Thanks for chiming in, Ben.

Friend is located near Simi Valley, but has no problem driving into the SFV or greater LA area for a deal.

Looking for a mid-level (or better) road bike, 80's or newer. Indexing preferred.

Every now and then someone goes on a streak and posts half a dozen ads in LA for great deals.

Hoping to inspire similar sharing of deals in this thread.

1987 Schwinn Tempo for $75 - Raleigh, NC
I'm still to new to post links or photos, but in the Raleigh, NC area there is a 23" 1987 Schwinn Tempo for $75.

Be sure to search for Tempo since the seller spelled it "Scwhinn" by accident.

Looks like it was stored outside for awhile because of hood discoloration and the paint looks like it is rough or it has a lot of mismatched touchups.

Shimano 105 but the wheels have been replaced at some point with Nashbar hubs and rims. Still look to be 6 speed freewheel hubs.

But $75 sounds good for a 105 Tenax beater. 22 pounds according to the 1987 catalog.

1987 Schwinn Tempo - $75 (Morrisville)



"1987 Schwinn Tempo, 23" - good for 5'9-6'2 or so I would say depending on inseam. New chain, bar wrap cable / housing. Bike has been disassembled and re-greased. Frame has been touched up ( lots of knicks and a little bit of rust I sanded down and covered up) - and while looks ok from a distance - the touch up does not look good closer up. Unfortunately I did not get new brake hoods, and white was a poor choice of bar tape with the current discolored hoods.

Just noticed there was some drag when pulling rear brake, will try to fix that up if possible.

I planned on riding this - but it is a bit small (I'm 6'2") - and honestly I just can't get used to downtube shifters, or the 12 speed range. But it rides very nice.

Schwinn catalogs, 1981 - 1990 (330 of 456)
Shimano 105 parts- wheels are nashbar hubs and rims - seem prety nice actually.
Nice avocet racing saddle - one mark on it ( in picture) - can be touched up I am sure.
Tires are older, did not replace tubes.

$75 firm."

1971 ITALIAN RACING BIKE - $325 (Richmond)



condition: excellent
make / manufacturer: Italvega
model name / number: Novorecord

Vintage 1971 Italvega Novorecord road racing bike - 10 speed. In excellent condition - all parts on this bike were made in Italy, including new crankshaft, arms, handle bars and breaks. Very fun and fast bike. Italvega bikes were built in Italy for about 5 years, from 1970 -75. The company then moved to Japan and became Univega. Italvega bikes were designed by master bike builders and their quality was better than the Japanese bikes. The bike is light and nice looking. $325 obo
