a Bridgestone Spica, looks competent for everyday use but not a racing bike by any stretch. Sort of like a Le Tour in the food chain, probably. Can't tell much about it except for the cool-looking Apex crank

https://sacramento.craigslist.org/bik/6172901932.html

The crank looks just like this one VeloBase.com - Component: Sakae/Ringyo (SR) Custom

1960s Capo Modell Campagnolo

This looks interesting although I don't know anything about Capo bikes. I'd be researching it if it were my size.

It even has the original swirled saddle. So tubular.

As the person who posted this, obviously I am naive to the fact that people would list it and not identify flaws that are obvious. Makes no sense to waste people's time. I didnt even notice to be honest - bad pic and all.

Looks to be at least mid-range from the early 60s. Unfortunately, the fork is bent. I doubt it's really worth $600 even without the fork problem. (I've never heard of Capo, so take this with a grain of salt.)

Edit- I looked into Capo bikes, and apparently they were imported into California from Austria for a year or two in the early 60s. Supposedly a 531db frame, so probably a pretty nice bike for the era. $600 might be reasonable if it weren't for the fork damage.

Sell 2 to buy 1. That is my new policy to thin out and stay married. Sadly means i need to sell 2 very soon because of this thread.

Sell 2 to buy 1 sounds like a plan. Here's a Campy Bianchi that is thankfully too big for me for $500

Heh...on that, I can't comment...but it's a seriously nice bike at what I think is a pretty fair price. Della Santa's stuff is no non-sense, well built and classic in my mind.

This strikes me as eminently good advice.

That's because it isn't an '84. '84 Gran Rally is double-butted, not triple-butted as this example's decals point out. NO '84 Univegas were triple-butted. https://univegacatalogs.wordpress.com/1984-2/

They at least allude to it though - "I'm looking to sell AS-IS". Would be mighty nice if they'd more clearly indicate WHY rather than capitalizing "as-is".

(This coming from the guy who gets upset about undisclosed kickstand squashed chainstays )
