Agreed,

And while we are on the subject, Jim Merz recently posted 2 that he made on his FB page. These are some of the rarest on the planet and are pretty cool.

Check it out.

Lotus Eclair Touring with Deore $100

https://vermont.craigslist.org/bik/d...832521220.html

Looks well used. But a nice classic touring bike with Deore. I think the biggest challenge would be actually reaching the location where the bike is in VT. We are getting hit hard in the Northeast with snow.

Never claimed it did; just contradicting your blanket statement that all forks are bent.

Decent looking 531 Raleigh Technium in Madison

Raleigh Technium Competition 531 - $170 (Madison)



"This is an early 90s Raleigh Technium Competition. The seat tube is 24.5in (62cm) CTC or 25in (63.5cm) CTT. It will fit a tall person who is above 6ft in height. The Competition was the 2nd from the top of Raleigh USA's super light racing range back in the day.

It's a nice fast upright bike as is, or if you want to strip it to the frame, it can be restored to a more traditional drop bar build. There are some minor paint chips and decal scuffs but the frame is in good shape. The wheels are worn but usable.

Frame: Reynolds 531 tubes bonded to aluminum lugs. The head tube is fully aluminum. Internal brake routing. Fastback seatstays. Chain hanger and pump peg. Two sets of water bottle bosses. No dropout eyelets or rack mounts as this was a racing bicycle.
Fork: Traditional lug-brazed fork with Reynolds 531 blades.
Headset: Shimano 600 tricolor
Stem: Unmarked 120mm quill. Probably a Nitto or Sakae.
Handlebars: Velo Orange Porteur
Brake levers: Shimano 600 tricolor drop bar levers. No hoods.
Shifters: Sunrace thumbies.
Grips: Oury
Brakes: Shimano 600 tricolor
Seatpost: Sakae
Saddle: Stock Cannondale road bike saddle
Front wheel: Matrix Aurora rim, Shimano 105 (HB-5501) hub, Panaracer Pasela 23mm
Rear wheel: Campagnolo Ipsilon rim, Shimano 600 tricolor hub, Conti Ultrasport 23mm
Crankset: Shimano 600 tricolor
Front derailleur: Shimano Claris
Rear derailleur: Shimano Altus"

^^^^^ Right in my neighborhood; I can facilitate. A little (well, a LOT) too vertical for me.
