This does indeed look nice, and NOS. Just a hair too small for me....if it was a 19" or 20", I'd be calling right now.... that flamingo pink! I've been looking for a 58cm pink Team Fuji road bike forever...

Vintage Schwinn Cimarron. A little rusty but she still rides! Looks like a 56 cm frame.
Posted 12 days ago, meaning, at that price, it's been up about 11 days 23 hours TOO LONG!

"Milwaukee guy" (foundation / dryer vent) has some fresh stock. I've always thought it'd be fun to have one of these, just on account of the bad-@$$ dude on the headbadge:

I don't know about 501 or the "Course" model. The early '80's Professionals ride surprisingly well.... Italian racing geometry, with Reynolds 531 or Columbus SL tubing.

At $90, this 21" Trek frame (F/F/HS/BB) should not be overlooked.
https://sandiego.craigslist.org/csd/bop/7056187468.html

It has Campy rear dropouts, investment cast fork crown, over the BB shell cable routing, brazed-on top tube cable guides, but no seat-tube panel. In combination with a Tange Levin headset, I believe this points to 1980(?). No frame tube indication- the serial number would be illuminating.

If this is your size, this could be a really nice find.

1984 Raleigh Super Course $70

I realize that most here wouldn't be interested, but I'm in love with my '85 SC, even though it's a tad too big for me. I've begged and pleaded with the seller (who appears to be someone other than the owner) to ship me the bike over the last two months, but instead the strategy has been to lower the price, to no avail. If any member would be interested in facilitating a purchase and the shipment to me, I would be grateful to forward the costs in advance AND donate the Brooks saddle to this fine upstanding individual. Any takers nearby the seller???

It's not English, it's not 531, not the finest components. Yeah, there are nicer bikes nearby, but this one has gotten under my skin!

The RD cable stop looks positioned correctly, just too short housing.

If I were to get a custom bike, Erik is high on my list. He has a great grasp of frame aesthetics and his bikes are pretty unique. Not to mention he makes some great racks as well. A fillet-brazed centerpull bike from him or Jeff Lyon would be a grail bike for me.
Yep, short housing and the skewer nut with the bail at exactly the wrong clocking, turn it 45 degrees tuck the bail down and half the problem goes away.

I have a Dave Kirk/Winter produced CSI that is finally being built as a flat bar roadster.

Fenders, wide tires and the whole shebang.

Should be nifty.

Collecting parts atm.

You are right though, you don't see Winters up for sale so often.

Kind of like a Chris Bishop.

They are lifetime bikes.

A "Benz" with an Altus crank, Wellgo pedals, and what appears to be an entry level Exage RD..... About the only thing remotely commensurate with "Benz" would be the once-not-pooched Brooks.

Not knowing anything about it in the first place I can't defend all that. But the combination of the metallic paint tank frame with the Amp fork and suspension looked pretty cool to me.
