But you've got to call a seller who's already in a bad mood. That's not appealing.

I won't worry about that too much. In the times I've listed on CL, I get more phishers and scammers than interested buyers. I take it in stride, but I can't blame others for being agitated.

He's pissed off because he's just come to the realization he's spent $500 on hubs for 45 lb clunker.

Looks like the Lotus is an '83 Prestige. Might be wrong, but is that orange one in pic 4 a Raleigh International? If so someone on here needs to put down the eggnog and run... Would love to have it and the Nishiki Mixte. Bay are bike deals! They never stop

LOL,
For being such a good citizen he sure has no problem jacking the cost up once he realized what he had. I wasn't sure if some of those decals peeling off were actually "peeling off" or they were dents in the frame. Regardless, it looks to be full campy except for the brake levers.

------

The orangish/rootbeer coloured frame set with the chrome lugs is a Windsor Carrera Sport ca. 1973.

----

The Verot chain set seen on the rootbeer/brownish frameset is a 49D.

Yes and no. Pretty rare, but they were swaged, unlike the TAs they are a copy of.

I don't need another bike like this, but this would be a super fun winter project.

Wouldn't be that much work to straighten out issues, as long as the frameset is in decent condition.
