An early Davidson, a Discovery touring bike for $600. Complete with various Campagnolo bits. Really just a grubby bike that could use a full disassembly, clean/wax/potential touch-up, and then reassembly. Lovely color, and of course being a Davidson, it's going to be a great ride.

Maybe not that pretty, yet and maybe not big enough BUT like the seller says, big clearance's, perfect excellent candidate for retro mod light gravel something awesome.

This looks like it might be bigger than stated.

The stays look to be 44-45cm. In the case of frame size, I think the seller is on the money with the 60cm, which is too short for me, even if I do really like my Davidson Impulse. Additionally, this would have to compete with a number of tourers/sport tourers in my stable (Paramount, Trek 710, a "resting" Trek 410) including my '90 C'dale ST400, which laying waste to my idea of another touring frame being it's equal, let alone better. I continue to slowly scheme to make my '85 Trek 620 frame and fork (both pieces need work to even make it to the build-up phase) a match to it, and I have a pretty good plan with the honest pre-conclusion that I will trade a non-flexy frame that's dynamite out of the saddle (the ST) for some noticeable flex (in the same scenario) yet additional 'love' thanks to the frame being entirely steel, with longer chainstays yet, and of course being made by Trek.

Yep, I was speaking in general knowing this was too small for you or me even if it was a little bigger, and that both of us have plenty similar.

If it might have been a little bigger, I would give it more possible consideration. I'm not lucky enough to have a Davidson yet so I would be a little more motivated to push the sizing envelope, but this would still have to be closer to right as I have several that are "close enough" and work just fine.

That is a flagship bike. I feel your pain.

Very clean-looking Viscount w/ Shimano 600. $100, looks original, nice chrome. And dig those blue hoods!

A bit overpriced because it isn't actually full shimano 600, but it is mint. Bridgestone Mile 112. Lovely color.

Best believe it!

[MENTION=391445]malcala622[/MENTION] they quite good bikes. Looking to spread the love. Some will likely be built into complete bikes with STIs/Ergos as that is what sells more today, and for the slim market of very tall riders, they appreciate a fully gone-through and set up bike with strong brakes, good wheels, and modern performance (longer cranks, better gearing, more gears) without having the bike cost a lot and/or look really awkward.

Man, $500 for all of that? Wow. So much gold--all Superbe (even the crankset!) and a full Reynolds 531 race frame. Given that, from the frame geometry comparison, it shares it's geometry with the 970, a bike I had briefly (now with a super happy newer owner). Flawless manners. Top tube, if A=B with the 970, at the 64cm frame size, should be 59.5cm in length. Pretty long, and I say this having just been able to fit a 66cm Cannondale with a 61cm top tube, and a '74 Paramount with a 60cm top tube. This would be a phenomenal bike to have--race geometry with 531 tubing (had it once, miss it!), that color, and Superbe.

Maybe I should just keep riding the phenomenal bikes I already have, though, you know, the pull that these handmade vintage Treks has on me is considerable (I love my '81 710!).
