Yeah, one size too big and a couple Benjies too rich for me. Still, some eye candy.

61cm Cilo 600 - Vintage- Beautiful - $400 (Providence)





'86-'87 handbuilt Cilo 600. Frame measures 61cm. Constructed with Japanese engineered Tange 1 steel tubing, on par with the best Columbus and Reynolds steel at the time. This Swiss beauty comes with a full Shimano 600 groupset (brakes, derailleurs, headset, crankset, bottom bracket, hubs, and cassette). The handlebars were made by Cinelli (you know 'em, right?) and the saddle is a leather Selle Italia Turbo. The wheels are 700c Araya Super Hard Anodized for greater durability and stopping power.

The bottom bracket has been rebuilt with fresh grease. Bar tape, cables and housing are new. The Continental Super Sport tires have plenty of life left in them.

The bike is all clean and tuned.

Come test!
I had to put this one up again! It is very easy on the eyes.

[MENTION=470571]abshipp[/MENTION] I just checked on it and yup, right around $100 shipped. Someone got a great deal.
[MENTION=208016]seypat[/MENTION] yeah those colors are so nice. I will call that 61cm measurement incorrect, though, by the seller. As a seasoned big bike owner, that Cilo is closer to 63cm CTC and 65cm CTT. Properly big frame!

I don't think this is a Bridgestone.


https://boston.craigslist.org/sob/bi...743061109.html





I am a bike mechanic and this is from my personal collection. The bike was purchased from the original owner who purchased it in 1988. He had only ridden the bike a handful of times (100 miles approx) and then it sat hanging in the garage until I purchased it.

I have gone completely thru this bike and overhauled it ($180 bike shop charge) it needs nothing!!!! It is completely original except for tubes and brake pads for reliability and safety sake only. I even left the reflectors on the wheels and bars for originality purpose only....The bike has a really nice 105 wheelset with rare black anodized Araya 700c rims also rare black Laprade seatpost... I love this bike but have too many and occasionally I sell a few..... this is one of them.

The frame size is a 55cm c-top /top tube 54.5cm c-c. This will fit a rider that is approx 5'7" to 5'10"

This bike is was manufactured by Bridgestone in Japan the leader in high quality manufactured bikes in the 80s and 90s. This is a Steve Bauer Chinook model. Steve is a Canadian Cycling Legend- Olympic cycling medal winner-Team Seven Eleven-Yellow Jersey stage winner in the tour de france- Hannault- Lemond..You get my point.

The bike is located in Weymouth but If you are coming from the City by train I can meet you at the Braintree T station.

Cash only $280 takes it....Call Bill at 781-812-2592...No B.S please..If the add is listed it is still available for sale.

Those have been $100 all day long and not selling here in Wisconsin. I passed on one that was near mint because he wouldn't let me find out if the stem was stuck. At least 2 others of this vintage have been sitting for a while at $100. Don't know if it's because of the season or not - but prices have fallen this summer too

Trek 400's are the same way. I could buy no less than 4 Schwinn Travelers at $100 ea. tomorrow. A 58 cm black Dave Scott Centurion Expert has been sitting for more than 2 months at $150. I even started noticing vintage Cannondales sitting a lot longer than usual, but they don't come up as often. Two blueberries within 200 miles are like $125 right now.
I'm going to buy every one I can and rent a truck and bring them out to you. I'll make $5,000 and you can make whatever you want after selling 50 of them
The aluminum Treks are always hot sellers though.

Someone should start a "What's Hot - What's Not" topic. That would make for an interesting read

the general demand for bicycles is also plummeting in the cities. its much harder to sell even a nice bike here due to a couple factors:
1. it will probably get stolen
2. you could just ride an electric scooter
3. you could take a rideshare bike

with 2+3 addressing the problem of #1 .

the casual rider who just needs a bike to get places now no longer needs a bike. the only people buying are recreational (who want new bikes) or people like us, but we can only buy so many bikes- contrary to evidence here.

Thanks for the offer! But I currently have two sets of Planet bike handlebar pads to use - helps keep my hands from going numb. I only noticed these sew-on pads recently when reading this guy's blog: Fuji Otaku: The Phoenix Project - Toshi/Fujitoshi Stitch-On Leather Handlebar Wrap

Pretty sharp.

Have you got sew-ons mounted on any of your bikes?

I will graciously pass on your offer as I don't have the room. That is pretty crazy how it looks like a good bit of quality vintage metal is sitting for so long, even at a very low price. I was talking to a guy (who was buying some parts from me) last night--who actually knows several BF members (and their handles!) and he remarked at how the vintage market is a bit soft here, though it seems better in Portland (he noted several recent experiences). I think the stuff that now sells to more people, if it must be vintage, are bikes that are 1) ready to go 2) STI/Ergo equipped with #2 being the more important factor. Nice to know that even I in my indexed downtube shifter enthusiasm, am being phased out. Lol.

I'd never heard of this before, so hit Google. I clicked the Image link. This was pic #2 . Maybe the guy always wears gloves so doesn't notice the stitching?

I did mine so the stitching was on the inside curve of the bars, but the only bike that had it is gone and I had already removed the hide. May have a photo somewhere but I'll have to dig for it and it's probably not a closeup.
