Nice resto-mod that is about $1000 too much. https://boston.craigslist.org/bmw/bi...596813697.html

Basso Gap 1984, 52cm, Columbus SL - $1800 hide this posting






© craigslist - Map data © OpenStreetMap(google map)Gorgeous Basso 1984 (ish) Basso Gap Neo-Retro build restored a couple of years ago with Imron paint.

TT - 52cm c2c
ST - 51.5cm c2c
CS - 41cm c2c
Stand over - 30.5"

Columbus SL tubing (far superior to Columbus SLX IMHO)
Campagnolo Headset
105 5600 Shimano 10 speed group
Dura-Ace gear indicator
Mavic Open Pro wheels
Color matching brifter hoods, cable housing and supple Vittoria Diamante tires
Thomson seatpost
Sooper supple Nashbar saddle
Modolo 100mm stem (but it self identifies as 90mm stem)
42cm compact handlebars with custom Basso bar plugs

Full discretion there is a wee scuff on the non drive side of the TT, it is not visible in pictures and will not interfere with any bike porn money shots as those must be from the drive side as dictated by the cryptic hazy rules of cyclepornamatria (if ye be skivvy to such gubbins).

$1800 Reasonable offers entertained, Cash, serious buyers only.

If the ad is still up the bike is still available. We will meet at a local friendly police station where you can gawk at the bike to your hearts content, ride it, and then purchase it. Morel mushroom, toy cycle and Marino Basso not included in the purchase. Covet not thy neighbor's bike!

Nice bike with an ugly stem. It has been posted loads of times over the last 2 or 3 years. Maybe the seller should lower the asking price?

Waterford 1250 w/Campy triple - $1095 hide this posting




© craigslist - Map data © OpenStreetMap(google map)Waterford 1250 road/light touring bike. Steel is real. The is a super comfortable and stable ride. The frame and fork were built in 1995 and the bike was assembled in a pro shop. The premium paint (considerable price adder at the time) is called "chameleon green," which is metallic and has a hint of purple in it. Looks amazing in the sunshine. The pics don't do it justice. The gruppo is mixed, with a 10 speed Campy Centaur Triple drive train, Campy levers, and Mavic brakes. There is very little mileage on this drive train. The custom built wheels use Campy hubs with DT spokes and Mavic rims. Continental GP 4 season tires front and back, both in good condition. The bike has eyelets, front and back, a chain hanger, and a pump peg. Size is 57cm top tube and 57cm seat tube, both measured center to center.

This bike was my main ride for several years before I purchased a carbon road bike. Thinking that I would use the Waterford for commuting and light touring, I reconfigured it as a triple. I just haven't ridden it much. The bike is in very good condition and is ready to ride. The only flaws are paint chips on the drive side chainstay. Let me know if you have questions or need more details about anything

Thanks. I was going to do that until the seller pulled the $180 ad off Craigslist and replaced it with a $525 deal on the humongous bidding site. bummer

I saw that too. chance of a lifetime to pick up two greats for a fraction of getting it built. Both men still in business as well- shows how great they really are. One day I really need to get a local built frame- but its rare even living in Oakland to find one my size that I can afford.
