Steve,
There are plenty of us in the Bay Area who can facilitate if you strike a deal with the seller. I'm only a 50-minute drive from Berkeley.

WANT! Dang, just a bit too large. Billato built, TSD in team Z paint
https://www.ebay.com/itm/Greg-Lemond...EAAOSwa3BaCybV

$800


Greg Lemond hand built Team Z Columbus TSX tubing road bike with Dura-Ace/Campy components, Rigida clincher wheel set with bladed spokes, 8 speed cluster, Scott triathlon bars, Look pedals, used very little because medical problem arose shortly after purchase in mid-90s. Kept in Air Conditioned shop most of the time since. New tires/tubes should probably be installed by Buyer. I can ship in a shipping/travel case sent to me by ultimate buyer. Shipping to be paid by buyer

It looks to be a 25" / 63.5cm, which is my size. That's a stupid good price for that. Now am I not taking vacation days for this????

[MENTION=477137]KAK[/MENTION]tus and @Steve Whitlatch haha, I bet my boss would. I'm slowly finishing up an '82 Miyata 1000, have an '85 Paramount already, still have no one buying my other bikes (and thus really no extra room as of yet), and well....my '74 P15 Paramount that I just changed to 3x9 down tube Dura-Ace on with dual pivot calipers, a B17, and 28mm tires is very quickly becoming my favorite bike. To the point of me starting to think, why don't I take it on every ride--and this includes commuting. It's like I just built my grail bike semi-unintentionally. I gotta pass on this, but if someone would like to snag it and keep it in the BF family, that would be a good future for it. It would be a long drive certainly. I'd rather live in Portland and make the trip. Seattle is another three hours, though I have in the past been no stranger to the LA to Portland one day road trip.

Somebody else save this lovely Paramount!

This bike has been up forever. I almost bought some wheels from this guy a year or so ago and his texts were hard to understand. He seemed anxious to deal though. Most of his parts are still up there on CL like this bike.

80's Franklin w/ massive seat stays

Just won an auction for this last night, thanks to a heads-up from [MENTION=128160]GentlemanGeorge[/MENTION]. Interesting paint & seat stays- what do you think this will ride like?
And- since I'm in Columbus, this will be going back to Jack Trumbull at Franklin Frames for a little touch-up! I'm interested to see what he can tell me about it.

If I ever have a real job again and have money to buy bikes again a Lemond from this era is top of the list.

It's before the really good Odyssey's. They're cool in their way...but sort of a blue print if that makes sense.

I bought three bikes from this seller some time ago at which time I took pictures of this bike. He is quite eloquent and very knowledgeable. I don't know why he writes the skimpiest ads.

The bike is a CyclArt repaint and looked immaculate and gorgeous.

Indeed, gorgeous bike. You have to feel confident buying from a seller who tracks when the tires were inflated.

If you have the stilts for it and are in the York, PA area this looks like a good deal. Love Sante, bet it's a bear to keep looking good though...

There's an "Are you looking..." thread in the Tandem Cycling forum also, so you should post this over there as well as here for a better target audience. Thanks!

I have one of these, one size larger. With nice, supple, racing tires, it is an excellent ride. With cheap tires, it's a little harsh. I paid $200 for the frame set.
