Hard to see what components this has (105?) but seems like it'd be worth a look. These Performance road bikes are so hard to google without a model name.

Hehe. Just select your location carefully, those walls are three feet thick and solid steel, you don't want to accidentally materialize inside of one of those. I found this out the hard way . . . :

60cm fuso that is slowly dropping at the bay. Not a bad deal. Rode my fr1 yesterday and these frames are lively and always a pleasure to ride.

Yes I agree that he knows his vintage Treks and current market value on them. If the paint on that green TX700 was in better condition, he’d be asking more for it. I think he’ll take $350 for it “As Is”.
The vintage f/r Jim Blackburn rack set is nice, those sets alone go for $150 on eBay. So you’d be getting that TX700 for $200 if you decide to sell the racks.

The seller is a very nice guy and as mentioned has offered some great bikes for sale. I have nothing bad to say about the man. For some reason,,,, this TX700 photographs better than in real life.
I am beginning to understand the value of frame sets and components. Yes, rusty gold doesn’t look good on nice bikes...
I’d rather have a great condition TX300 than a poor condition TX700. GLWS

Nice looking '75 Moto Grand Jubile near Denver for $200. Seller doesn't show drive-side pic but the levers are Huret Jubilee and the FD and RD long cage appear to be the same from what I can see.

That paint color makes it droolworthy nonetheless.
