Indeed. Most of us forumites buy and sell easily. It's simple right? Some folks are just not good at it. Can't take photos or even describe what is sitting in front of them. I was looking at a frame recently on ebay and asked a few questions of the seller. At first he was polite and answered then it turned ugly. Strange.

Something I've never seen before -- a very early Schwinn Voyager. A little price, but super cool.

Always had a soft spot for the lotuses, this looks like 1984 Eclair tour model and a sleeper--bet it can be had for sub 100 but does need tires and tune....

Paramout Road Bike 56cm Columbus SLX Tubing 20 Speed Shimano Mix - $600 (Newton)

This is a 1986 Waterford WI built Paramount. The components are a Shimano mix with a 10 speed cassette and a Dura Ace double crankset. Paramount built some of the best steel bikes in America. and their reputation for innovation and for build quality is widely respected. The bikes will always be collector's items that you can use every day.

The bike has the paint chips and decal tears you would expect of a well used bike but there is no rust. The bike has never been used on a trainer so the top tube has no rusting at the cable brazeons. Measured center of top tube to center of the crank the seat tube is 22" or 56cm as it the top tube.

Please include a phone number in your response. The price is $600 or best offer. I will be available to show the bike Saturday or Sunday.

I love it! And it's my size, but way too expensive for me. Math is hard, though: 21.5" is 54.61cm, not 48.4. It looks like 54-56cm to me...

Oh, no... really? So "patina" is a verb now? Yeah, rust has always been a big selling point - I won't buy a bike without it.

Right. And it's not like spraying clearcoat on top of rust is going to stop it from eating away at the metal. That bike is being sold where people probably aren't so familiar with rust, though.

Wow. That makes me want to round up all the local town-folks in a mob with pitchforks and torches and run the guy out of town, or the country.

Fugi Sand Blaster

I don't know much about The Fugees, but the price is nice:FUGI SANDBLASTER - $25 (Baldwinville)



needs new tires


...and now that I've posted it, I bet it's not classic or vintage. It caught my eye, anyway.

No offense taken. I share the sentiment being expressed here, especially the one about running the guy out of the country.
