Despite the low price I doubt it's stolen, Hillcrest is that sort of area where someone with money would buy something for looks and sell it at a massive loss.

Also, are those titanium cranks?

Also I promise never to post a modern carbon fibre bike here ever again but I have to just this once. Don't run me out of town please!

Cristobal anyone? Near as I can tell it have Victory or maybe Triomphe brakes. $1000 is likely a little much for it though. https://indianapolis.craigslist.org/...346493541.html

We sold dozens of Puch Pathfinders and Fuji Gran Tourers and Royales in 27", and the aforementioned Panasonics in 28". There was even one dealer in town who advertised a certain S-branded bike as "the TALLEST" because the little stub of seat tube extended about 1/4" higher than then brands we sold.

This same demographic later moved on to installing elaborate roof rack setups on their vehicles with no bicycle ever in evidence.

Incidentally, Panasonic only made the 28" in the DX-2000, but made 27" in a couple of the lower-line Sport models. The DX was a better bike with all alloy components and, I believe, better tubing in the frame.
Interesting, thanks.

And another bike question: Why did they ever stop making FD's this way? They seem so simple; just pretend you're reaching for your water bottle. Seriously, this better be a collector's item because $400 is lunacy otherwise.

Motobecane Grand jubilee with Japanese parts (cyclone).

"Dimensions: From the crank to the top of the seat post is 24 in . Top tube from the seat post to the handle bar post is 23 in.
Asking $150"

Sounds like they're ready to haggle just to offload this bike. I dunno why it hasn't sold, I've seen it up there for a while.

@toavii -- Nice! One of my favorite things around here is seeing someone score a bike because somebody else posted it in this thread.

Above - many great picks, especially the Viner. That'll sort out nicely.

Project potential for Motobecane Team Champion / Campy, issues with wheelset. Usually see these for double and those not quite choice condition. BID sitting at $600 (Mil, WI)

That chainring under the seat looks like it's almost dragging the ground.

Yeah sadly when I looked at it the 4th or 5th I started realizing it may be a homemade big POS right down to claw mounted RD on the stamped dropouts

Co-Motion Espresso road bike. Looks like Campagnolo Chorus groupset. $375. (Note: if made today, it's a $4200+ bike.)

1997 Co-Motion Espresso Campy, 58cm, in Reynolds 853 steel - $375 (OP, KS)
My favorite ride of any bike I've ever owned. Smooth as glass that climbs exceptionally well and accelerates in a snap - is now up for sale.

58cm

Only reason I'm selling - I've moved to smaller bikes and now ride a 55/56cm. As much as I love it, I now feel too stretched out when I ride it. Hoping to find someone else who will love it as much as I have.

Clean with a couple of paint nicks from RAGBRAI transport- it's traversed a couple. Wheels still spin forever, all works as it should with new bar tape. Tires are good chain still in spec.

See specs from Bicycle Blue Book - I think it's pretty much original - maybe a couple of upgrades (including original upgraded 2 tone fade paint job).

https://www.bicyclebluebook.com/Sear...priceMax=18377

Pedals not included but will leave them on for a test ride.

Call, text or email with questions or to schedule a test ride.

I looked again after you replied, I see what you're saying and some other interesting rigging. I like how the builder used a rear derailleur between the two chainrings to act as an idler pulley and chain tensioner. The rig has a bit of a Mad Max vibe going on which I find perversely appealing, strap on some crossbows and you're ready to rock.

Someone should take a very close look at that Cuevas posted above.

The one I owned was gorgeous, with very nice lugwork.

Never Near Enough To Me

Road Bike - Team Fuji - $25 (Chapel Hill)



"This is an older model road bike, but could give very good service to a capable owner. It is a large frame, but at 6-1 it suited me well. Nice shifters and components. New tires are needed but the alloy wheels seem pretty nice."

Glad you got it. I contacted the woman shortly after it was posted. She said I could pick it up on Saturday. I ended up passing on it because I knew I wouldn't keep it plus it was a bit of a drive. An even farther drive for you. Hope you enjoy it.
It looks very similar to a Simoncini Special Professional I sold earlier this year. The Special Professional decal was identical as were other parts of the bike.

I was in the area at a family cabin. I donít think I would have made the drive for it. I havenít been buying/selling all that much since the market seems to be pretty poor. Noticed Clangís post and figured it be something Iíd get to during the winter. Itís nice but not all that special. Iíll likely move it on next spring.

Ditto that. The Cuevas family left Argentina when things got ugly there in the 80's and set up a custom frame building shop in Astoria, NY. A friend of mine has one built for him by Andreas in the mid-80's with the same grey-to-black fade finish. It was a beautiful frame.
