Based on this pic, I think it's a 25" bike, or 24 at the smallest (weird angle): https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/iVcAAO...1K/s-l1600.jpg

Do you think this is a 23" or 25"? It looks like a 25" based on the headtube and the stem looks 100mm. The 23" came with a 80mm stem.

I think you are right about it being 25". Well at least that saves me money! I would only fit the 23". 72.5 degree angles and the parts would make for a great all around bike. The extra weight over a Tempo or Super Sport probably comes from the Hi-Ten fork rather than a Cro-moly fork.

The seller says it is a 1982 but you can see part of the Columbus Tenax sticker, which would make it mid to late 80s. The color and the components in the photos match the 1986 Prelude seen here:

Not insisting that it is, only that it's odd to appear in one photo and not the other.

Fork Two

Miyata 1000 Frame 58cm - with two forks - $225 (Charlotte)





"Miyata 1000 Frame 58cm - with two forks ... a cultish classic steel frame that rides incredibly smooth ... my personal preference is the gold fork with the brake bosses removed to run extra long reach caliper brakes up front ... requires cantis or linear pull in rear ... not drilled for calipers ... red powder coat"

Custom Steel Frame

I'm not sure what to make of this one. If it is custom, then why no decals or mention of who made the frame?

Does the fork look slightly bent or just the camera angle?

favorite this postEarly production Waterford 1200 Road Bike - $1750 (Plymouth, WI)hide this posting unhide
<image 1 of 3>






make / manufacturer: Waterford
model name / number: 1200
size / dimensions: 55cm


QR Code Link to This Post


This is a 1994 vintage (Shortly after Waterford came into existence - after the Schwinn buyout).
This post-Paramount bike was one of a group built for the Wisconsin Velo Club.
I am the original owner, and was fitted personally by Richard Schwinn.
The components are all Campagnolo Chorus, with the exception of a Record crank, and an American Classic Seatpost
Frame size is 55cm
Two sets of wheels are included. The Campy wheels, as well as a set of Mavic clinchers on Campy 36 hole rear and Hugi 28 hole radial front.
All in great condition. The tires on the bike now have < 50 miles. Continental Gran Prix 23mm.

No pedals
Saddle - I can include choice of two saddles. I would like to keep the Flite pictured on the bike now.

"Almost completely original condition, Trek 500 in fantastic shape! 21" ( 53cm) seatpost measured center to center. frame is Reynolds 501 double butted tubing. Suntour shifters/derailleurs; Maillard 500 sealed wheel hubs, tires in great condition. New handlebar tape, comes with Zefal pump and water bottle cage.
