For all the 51cm frame riders among us, here is a flippin' 1987-89 Schwinn Prologue in black/grey for only $100!!! Located on the Maryland-Virginia border, it looks to be complete and in decent shape. 6400-era Shimano 600 equipped (620x brake levers however). Beyond a steal for $100. @brandenjs posted this in the Late '80s Schwinn thread, so I am taking the liberty of posting it in this thread.

1994 Bridgestone RB-1 road bike project - $350 (Lowell)




I am selling off one of my projects which is a 1994 Bridgestone RB-1 Japanese made road bike. The bike has a 57cm Tange double butted steel frame, Ishiwata crowned fork, Shimano 600 components, Shimano 8 speed STI shifters, Deore headset, generic bar/stem and a set of modern bladed Shimano 700 wheels. This was a post Grant Peterson model but still of similar high quality. The frame has 2 very minor dings on the top tube which is nothing structural but worth a mention pictures of them will be included. I own a few drop bar roadies already and can't justify another one so it's the reason why I am selling this project. With a few parts and few bucks this could be a sick roadie. Every part on the bike works including the STI shifters so it doesn't need much to get going. Sold for cash and pick up only . Please mention name, item, location, a phone number for a response all other emails or texts will be considered spam and will be ignored. Thanks

Got s/n from seller L18, so this should be a late 62 or early 63, could have been a "Disneyland" Paramount and a repaint if so.

The fork crown and rear brake bridge will clear 28mm tires or better, but it's down to the chain stays which don't provide much room. I'd have to check when I get home to see if 28s fit in there. There is certainly enough chain stay length to accommodate.
I have an '84 Touring and run 32C tires on it but it won't go bigger with fenders. Haven't tried without.

That's not Nuovo Record.

There is a reason the "New Record" was called "New".

That one will be mostly steel. But, they have a lot of appeal for vintage enthusiasts.

I don't pay a lot of attention to vintage cheap Mixtes. However, this one caught my attention.

Vintage TALL Upright Raleigh Road BIKE! Super Record Townie Road Bike - $160 (Eugene)



Nothing spectacular about the bike, but it looks like it could be 58cm to 60cm, which would be relatively rare for that era of Mixte.

Some discussion begins here: eBay / CraigsList finds - "Are you looking for one of these!?" Part II

If it were my size I probably would have owned it (or at least have gone to look at it) by now.
That color matches the 1982 catalog for 510/515 but the Reynolds doesn't.
Wonder if someone just slapped the stickers on or if Trek happened to make a few 7 series with that color scheme but didn't list them?
Weird.

Weird.
FWIW, a cursory image search for 1982 Trek 710 shows different Reynolds 531 frame/fork decals.

For example, from Thrifty Bill (@wrk101):

I think a more definitive distinction is the lug at the head tube / top tube junction. Note that the Thrifty Bill example is a short point, while the CL ad version has a longer point on top.

Per the 1982 catalog on-line, the lugs are different between the frames, and a long-point would indicate a 515/510 frameset:



It's possible that the fork crowns are also a tell, but I haven't spend much time to sort that out.

Looks like an '83 610 with some component upgrades to me. Der cabling under (vs over) the BB suggests '83. That said, Thrifty Bill @wrk101 (see above) says his frame is an '82, and I have a mystery bike with an '82 serial number, but under-BB cabling.

Yeah, that seems like the most reasonable explanation.

That’s the (IMHO) more desirable 1986 710. In 87 they routed the brake cable through the top tube creating
1) a stress riser that has led to cracking.
2) extra holes for rain to get into the frame.
Also in ‘87 it was a 712.

That’s a $250.00 to $300.00 bike in Chicago.
