Unknown unloved bike with interesting eclectic collection of components. Head tube shows a Shimano DA sticker and a stylized running fox. Pinstriping all main tubes. Chromed fork crown and blade tips; possibly degraded and lost chrome on seat and chain stay ends.
Anyone recognize the likely bike brand?

Vintage Ten speed - $75 (Burlington, WI)

Vintage 1983 Fuji Touring Series IV Bicycle - $135 (Boxford)


18 speed. Great bike, but hasn't been ridden in several years since I got a mountain bike. Crankshaft needs grease, but otherwise the bike is in great condition.

Tires: 26 inches
Top Tube (C-C): 22 inches
Seat Tube (C-T): 21 inches

Fuji manufactured this bike for four years between 1983 and 1987. All four model years can be seen at Touring Series IV

This 1984 model is for sale on eBay for $499: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-198...8AAOSw8TBZdRMU

At $135 you can't go wrong!

As I am one person among many distinguished that own a Paramount of this vintage (I have a '74), it looks to be a 25" frame (CTT). Great bike in a lovely color. Needs a full going through. Eclectic mix of components, but certainly worthy of original paint restoration, if "hot-rodding" as I have done with my '74 P15.

Not my size sadly but I think it may be quite a win for somone a hair shorter.

For sale is a 58cm Cinelli Equipe in used condition. Cinelli made about 150 of these in Italy in 1984 for Centurion. They were sold in the US as Centurion Equipe but the project fell out after the first run. Columbus SL and SP tubing with Cinelli pantographed seatstay brace, bb shell, seatstay tips, and fork crown. Campagnolo dropouts. Crome on headtube lugs has some pitting, as do the fork blades( This bike spent some time near the coast). It was repainted by an auto shop at some point. With a fresh coat of paint and some Cinelli decals this would be a great looking bike! Supercorsa on a budget. Feel free to email, call, or text 858-3three5-9nine36

Trek 620 - nice condition w/orig. components - think it's a 1983

caliper brakes, triple half-step w/granny, leather seat, Cyclone RD, early-style 'Trek' font

might even have the original rear rack

Richmond, VA

$330 is reasonable for this IMO

1983 Trek 720 - VGC - mostly original - eastern NC - $900

24" frame size

Orig. Blackburn rear rack - so the ad states.

I don't think I'd pay $900 - but if you've gotta have it there just aren't that many of these in existence

Hmmm, it has all the cable stops, and derailleur hanger. So, it could well be a Paramount that could be resurrected.

Frame is probably worth more than the $200 asking price.

I can probably facilitate in a week or so.

[The Schwinn enthusiast and internet sleuth in me goes on the hunt...] Those head lugs were specific to the Voyageur 11.8 and Super Le Tour 12.2--signifiers of two models and a short era in Schwinn history. A rare and special occurrence of non-Paramount Schwinns being available in chrome (for $50 extra!). These also have the non-standard 21.0mm quill stem diameter instead of the usual 22.2mm spec--that's the only bummer about them from a retro-mod standpoint. I had a SLT 12.2 that had them and always liked the look. Seat stay to seat tube intersection is at the same point as a Voyageur 11.8, as is the fork crown shape (where it meets the fork blade. The head badge is also plebeian, denoting a lesser-than-a-Paramount status. A touch short (for a P15-9) on the chain stays given the fender eyelets, and no P13-9 would have had them. SLTs were a smidge shorter than that. So while it isn't likely a Paramount, as a Voyageur 11.8, it's still a very nice Japanese Schwinn that is sought after. Still worth the $200 asking price if you ask me. It's a bit of a project if you want to get it back to original, but the bones look good and all the braze-ons are there. Heck, you could have extra ones put on if you were planning on repainting it any way!

Head tube angle looks suspiciously steep, and the fork looks a bit bent to my eye. Could be photo distortion, though.

Thank You, @cqlink, @RiddleOfSteel & @Trakhak

Well, maybe thank you. I really don't need any more project bikes. Somehow I hadn't seen that bike show up.

Last night I started thinking a Paramount frame might be a fun restoration project for $200. But, when I got home, I started noticing that all Paramounts of that era had the Nervex Pro lugs, or so it seemed. I was about to start a new thread asking what it was.

I've been staring at the HT a bit. Frankly I can't tell. The fork is probably restorable if bent. The HT would be more of a hassle to deal with.

Many frames had steeper HT angles when getting up to 60cm or so. I assume that frame is closer to 58. But, the angles do seem slightly steeper than other bikes I'm seeing on the internet.

The fork crown may help narrow the bike down a bit more. Looking at the crowns on the internet, many of the Super Le Tour and Voyager bikes have a spike shaped fork crown. This has the inverted U, marked as an 81.

'82 Schwinn Voyageur 11.8: What's it worth?

I'm a bit surprised the frames don't have shifter bosses.

Voyageur 11.8s got steep as they went taller, like the SLT 12.2s (I had a 1977 25" in all chrome). Fork does not look bent--angle is as normal as any number of steel frames we've seen. Fork crown matches, as do the head lugs. The SLTs had a center point crown lug/blade interface. The headbadge matches my former SLT 12.2 for the era, and the head lugs are only for these two bikes during this time--this must be realized. Not a lot makes 'mainstream sense' in Schwinn land regarding these two models. The very late '70s into the very early '80s saw some interesting and short-lived offerings and other events for Schwinn. The 11.8s and 12.2s were some of them.

This appears to have the original headbadge, not a Paramount, lugs are very interesting and may predate Nervex pro, my 58 has Nervex, but not pro.

We need the s/n and for @T-Mar, @Metacortex, etc. to weigh in. Even if not a Pmount, this could be something special.
