He also had a Specialized S Works on eBay ending last night. Full Campagnolo Record 10 speed went for $275. We will see if he honors that one as well.

greater bay area I see a fair bit of good stuff out in modesto/tracy area but its a commitment so one has to really want it.

Small Trek Touring - Estate Sale

^^^ My iPhone 4 resembles that remark!

This looks to be a barely-ridden, all original example way out in Puyallup, WA. Gorgeous color and condition. And at just $160, a killer price!

Anyone interested in facilitizing for me? I'd love to purchase this if it's still available, but alas, I'm in Portland, OR.

The Diamondback Ascent is a decent mid-level bike, but I wasn't sure if these chromed (early 70's?) Carlton Cobras are desirable. Looks like that surface rust would polish off.

I like how you can get a nice, lugged Bridgestone in CA for $120 and in MN they try to sell MB-5s for twice as much.

? for the Carlton experts -

What was the original gear ensemble configuration on this Cobra?



It clearly has a two plateau chainset and the bottom bracket cable guide has a housing stop for a front mech which is not present. The single Simplex Prestige stem shifter is of a model which did not launch until 1970 so it is newer than the cycle. The downtube housing stop is single so it cannot be original. There is a no-slide pib on the downtube for the mounting of the original controls, whatever they were.

Thanks for any information. ;^ )
