A 64cm frame is not huge. A frame taller than 64cm is huge.

Yup, KHS Turbo. I think I remember @oddjob2 getting one of these some time ago. The KHS Olympian was no slouch, although I think this Turbo was made a little deeper into the 80s, manufacture moved to Taiwan by then? I bet if anyone had more details @T-Mar would...

Yeah, if the top tube is fully up my rectum at standover I'm going to say it's huge, but that's just me

I believe that it's a Cilo Sport but still don't usually see these for $250...

Actually, it's a Cilo Aelle, named for the Columbus Aelle tubeset it used. It's circa 1984-1987. I always found it interesting that Cilo continued to spec the fricton New 600EX shift levers on this model after SIS was introduced, especially given that Cilo had won their home Tour de Suisse in 1984 using prototyre New Dura-Ace with SIS. I would have thought that if any European bicycle company was convinced of the merits of SIS, it would have been Cilo.

T-Mar It looked like a nice bike but alas a) I have exceeded my allowance for the year and b) it's too small which means a lot tied up in a flipper. On Friday a nice lady gave me a Raleigh Super GP but it had the "dreaded seized (and I mean seized) bar stem" so I have my next job lined up to keep me busy. Anyway, I saw the drive train and since it wasn't DA or Campy I assumed it must have been from the bottom of the line for the company but couldn't find any comparable Cilo's anywhere, even eBay USA had only a frame and forks from Poland. As per the shifters, are they the ones with the 4.5mm bosses versus the 5mm??

This one is circa 1985-1986. The Cyclone derailleurs, while OEM, are a bit of window dressing as the frame is Tange Infinity and the rest of the components are mediocre. Original MSRP was $379-$399 US, depending on the exact year. There was no need for KHS to move manufacturing to Taiwan, as they were a Taiwanese company.

You're right. I'm having a senior moment. What's the 3-letter Dutch or Austrian bike company that was building in the late 80s or early 90s that starts with K, I'm trying to think of but failing miserably? Not KLH, that's a speaker company. KLM? KTL? It was killing me trying to remember when I replied earlier.

The Cilo Aelle was their club racer. MSRP in 1986 was $529.00 US. It had an option of tubular or wired-on wheels. Most members would consider it mid-range. I'm not sure about the bosses but given a Swiss company, I'd expect 5mm Campagnolo compatible shift lever bosses.

BTW, I was thinking about last year's meeting. That would have been the weekend of the CURC, so it would have been the 1st weekend of November. This year it was held in Victoria and next year will be Antigonish. I believe @clubman is the closest member for that one but we probably won't be going as it's a poor course for spectators.

$160. Some nice details and Cyclone is a good group from its period. I'm almost tempted to go over and make him a lowball offer just to pick up the wheels and components, but I don't really need or have room for them.
Looks like a KHS, perhaps?

I could potentially facilitate this, if needed.
That bike should be parked in front of the Madonna Inn

I'll deviate from the norm and post multiple bicycles in one. I prefer keeping them separate, but whatever.

A real wtf Paletti, seller can't even spell the name with two Ts. $300 and you can have the most Ameri-patriotic Paletti ever. Still not sure if this belongs here or in the "ebay WTF" thread (sorry if you're a BF'er and this is yours, everyone has their thing...): https://www.ebay.com/itm/143462034045



A little Mondia goodness, too bad it's missing the fork, not worth ask + ship even if it was intact, still a cool find though. I'd rather have a Super. https://www.ebay.com/itm/174084324326



This late 70s or early 80's Bassan looks like it could be a really good catch if you can local-pickup in OR. https://www.ebay.com/itm/352875872040



For any of you folks wanting clear Dia-Compe cable kits, you literally cannot beat what Fraysee's got listed right now at $6.99 a set. I bought out half his stock, but he still has 4 left at the time of writing and he DOES refund on combined shipping after purchase without you having to chase him. https://www.ebay.com/itm/372853134047

Seller's ad copy:
"Nice vintage Eddy Merckx 3-Athlete frameset built with Reynolds double butted tubing, investment cast fork crown, BB shell, and lugs, and forged dropouts. Very nice dropout to tube transitions, and embossed seat stay caps. Excellent overall workmanship for a "production" frameset.

Approximate center to center measurements are as follows.

22-5/8” seat tube
22-1/2” top tube
16-1/4" chainstay
39-1/8” wheelbase
Straight. No dents. Typical chips and scratches for a frame of this age that has been ridden.
This frameset would make a very good everyday rider or trainer, and is certainly L'Eroica worthy!
E-mail with phone number to contact.
$149
Offers considered.
I also have vintage Campagnolo (early Record, Nuovo Record, Victory, Triomphe), Cinelli, TTT, and Mavic components should you desire a complete bike buildup or specific items.
I delete listings promptly when sold."

I could potentially facilitate this, but with the caution that I'm absurdly busy. (Busy enough that I shouldn't be messing around online, but...)

Raleigh Super Course in great condition. I would say the price is cheap but this seems to be the metro Detroit market these days.

I have some white Suntour Superbe chainrings. Put those and an Ole or Sante group on there and you would have a heavenly bike. It might ride like you were sitting on a cloud.
