Looks like this bike was Drew’d at some point. Appears to have forged dropouts + claw = derailer hanger chopped off. No chainstay cable guide either.

I am not familiar with this model but it looks like an updated Professional or Nuovo Classico maybe? Regardless, any steel De Rosa with a 9-speed Record group priced at $700 won't last long...

Gitane (spelt Gitune)

https://www.shopgoodwill.com/Item/44620258


The Goodwill in Colorado Springs has a Gitane (unsure what model) in an auction

"Gitune Orange Road Bike with Bullhorn Handlebars"

Just adding it because often things get missed when the title is mispelt.

Been on for at least two days and currently at 9.99 with no bids

That's an awfully pretty bike, and well equipped for the cash.

If it looks too good to be true, it probably is. Buyer beware!

Mikado Gaspe touring bike in Vancouver, BC. Needs a lot of work and the sticker at the top tube is potentially concealing something.

Is this a Terry Raleigh, or did someone do a fork and wheel swap?

They're extremely brazen. There's a Rene Herse Mixte for sale, bidding up to $1425 and when I checked this morning someone from China had lifted the exact listing with a BIN of $20-something and free shipping. I mean, c'mon... I flagged it and it's gone now, but this nonsense never stops. It gets really old, I wish eBay would give me the option to exclude specific countries from my searches but I'm guessing that would rub someone out there the wrong way...

the accessories on this one are really cool. Especially that front rack and fenders!

You can search for just US or North America, but you have to click the location boxes on each individual search. I wish they'd allow you to set it as a default setting. I also wish they'd let you block certain sellers, like you can on social media.

Commensurately Lower Price Point

1984 Panasonic road bike - $50 (Concord)









"Very lightweight vintage road bike by Panasonic. It has been repainted so I'm not sure of the model. Has a dent in the down tube. Very nice components and a lot of good parts for someone making a fixed gear bike. Tires are cracked but hold air. Need it gone. Leave message"

Bottecchia [1972] Giro D'Italia - $480 (Inwood / Wash Hts)

Maybe not a great deal, but look how close to original this is. (The seller included the link to the old catalogue.) That foam on the bars would have to go, though.

Judging from the components, I'm guessing it's at the bottom (or nearly) in A-D line.
