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.

PERFORMANCE BIKE - $99 (SAN PEDRO, CA)

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.

Again, that Trek TX700 is just awesome. If I were in a slightly better financial situation, I'd be asking (begging perhaps) for a facilitator.

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.

one general tip for when the exact hub cone is not readily available. discovered that the curvature of the bearing surface on the shimano 600 was a pretty good "skeleton key" for many applications. it would sometimes require a small change in ball size to make everything come out correctly.
