Trek 760 Bicycle Reynolds 531 Little Used Since New - Original - Campa - $750 (Savannah)

Boy, I like that! It's too big for me, but it doesn't look as big as 59cm to me. It's interesting that there's wear on the frame, but virtually none on the rims or the gears. It all looks good, in any case.

I can attest to the beauty of a Beaujolais 760 in person.

I will not buy anymore bikes! I will not buy anymore bikes! I will not buy anymore bikes! I will not buy anymore bikes! I will not buy anymore bikes!

Raleigh Grand Prix "with accessories" Niagara on the Lake, Ont

$150 (Canadian), about $115 US

At first I thought nice shape but a bit high a price.

Then I note the front and rear racks, fenders, helmet, double water bottle mounts (detachable one on rear), downtube shifters and finally a Brooks seat. I assume that's a pump mount on downtube so maybe he has a pump as well....
Can't see the headtube length unfortunately.


No one else bit so I had to. Paid $125 Canadian but also got a spare saddle bag of tools (who rides with a pedal wrench???) and a brand new Brooks 72 with cover for $25. Snow on bike because I couldn't use my rack and had to lay it in my truck. Green tape on top tube because he didn't want to scuff paint when he used his bike rack.

He has a 2nd bike and I will post that below as I am full!!!!

Bike is actually in St Catharines, Ontario

NOTE: Bike listed for $200 Canadian as owner was guessing at a value. He agreed $100 Canadian is more realistic value.

Single owner 1971 Raleigh Sprite 5 speed. Cottered cranks but also orginal Raleigh fenders and Brooks seat (can't recall model) was original to bike as well. Licence plate was Trenton, Ontario

Various non-friction/non-indexed shifters

Being the bottom feeder I am, it takes me awhile to pull the trigger on some items. I've had Simplex/Huret retrofriction shifters of various configurations and like them quite well. Still, there are other options. Many people like the SunTour Power Shifters. I have been told there is nothing better than the Campagnolo "Doppler" shifter in this class, and given that they aren't always identified in an obvious way, they can go unnoticed. I just pulled the trigger on a set of the Campy shifters, so thought I would cough up the various other non-Simplex retrofriction-like shifters on my eBay watch list. No affiliation on any of these:

Nice 88 Prelude, bit aggressive BiN at 400. Nice buy under 300 if it fits. My size so tempted, but no faith in shipping from west coast.

De Rosa Professional SLX. I spoke with the seller but it's too small for me.

Vitus 979 Framset - 54cm (likely a CTC measurement) - $325



Gitane Professional Super Corsa - 60cm (more like 62cm from my experience) - $650



1989 Cannondale Black Lightning (SR500) - 50cm (seller incorrectly measured, typical on old Cannondales) - $230 - Paint looks very nice, as do all the components. For the price and the right buyer, this is a great find.

Schwinn Paramount 1969 Women's - $795 (danville / san ramon)


https://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/bik...782613612.html




For sale is a vintage 1969 Schwinn Paramount Ladies road bike.

This bike is ready to ride with brand new tires, tubes, brake cables, brake pads, and housing. Rides smooth a silk. This bike just screams style, why ride a new hybrid bike when you could have this!

The parts on this are mostly original with a few minor exceptions.

Campagnolo: Crankset, Derailleur's, Shifters, Headset, Seatpost, and Record high-flange Hubs.

Other Parts: Brooks saddle, MKS (new) touring pedals. New retro looking touring bars , stem and brake levers. Original racing style Cinelli bars and Cinelli stem are available ((add $55) if you would want to convert back to a road racing postion. Original brake calipers .

This bike has its original paint, the chrome looks good, decals are mostly intact, and no rust , dents or dings that are worth noting. A well kept original! Take a few minutes and looks at some other Schwinn Paramounts listed and compare the difference! This one is very fairly priced too.

Size details: 21.5"


Price on this $795.

This is a private party sale out of my personal collection of vintage race bikes .

See this bike and many others at:


California Pedaler
495 Hartz Ave

This might interest someone. Listed as a Falcon Ernie Clement. Pictures don't help much but the starting bid is low.

I think this is wee bit overpriced but apparently the seller, or his local shop, put a lot of time and money into it. 1989 Bianchi Giro, SLX frame wif Athena $1800 https://sarasota.craigslist.org/bik/...800227070.html

Up for sale is my Bianchi Giro. This bike has been completely redone to original specifications. Every part has been inspected, cleaned, rebuilt or replaced. All bearings are new. Cables are new. NOS rims were sourced and laced to the original hubs with new spokes. The seat is not original nor are the tires. This is the nicest Bianchi you will find
