Nicely equipped Super Vitus tubed Ron Kitching with lot of a Superbe Pro group intact. Dunno what's up with the ask price, I think the start price is probably fair, but the BIN may be a bit overboard considering the current state. Looks to be in magnificent shape. Craptastic pics again, who posts 500px pics?!

If you're in the market for a Coppi, one mid-range and one low-end, the seller dropped their price on these by $100 and $200 respectively.

I think previous poster above is correct, it's probably a Kalloy installed on the bike above.
Thanks, yeah, looks like a kalloy I have.

Surfer,
Looks like a full Suntour high end set of components. Not sure of price, but worth a look. Smiles, MH

I would have wanted this a few years ago, but who designed these things? 68cm and 65cm sizes have the same 61cm top tube. I ride 67cm and up but want at least a 62cm TT. Only advantage to this bike is the cantilever brakes so you can roll larger tires.

The bike I was confused about: Red CIOCC in NC which seemed still up for grabs... Reading one of the posts (too quickly, I guess, it seemed like it might be a BF member's post... So I asked, and then said if not his, would he be willing to facilitate. but then I saw you had dibs, and I bowwed out no longer confused, until your most recent post which re-confused me...

To add weirdness to a different situation, - maybe it's time to get out of Denver... there's ANOTHER Gangl for sale there... but this one is smaller and $6000, not $650.
Go figure.

It is weird. Haven't heard back yet. We shall see what happens with the Ciocc. Perhaps he/she found a local buyer...

I just hope whoever gets it, it will be well-loved.

Weird. Anyone else notice the huge gap of invisible posts between reply #53900 and #53926 ?

Seems like it happened around the time Last ride 76 deleted a reply in that range.

I am an admirer of Ron Cooper bicycles, not an expert on them, but this does not look like any Ron Cooper I've ever seen. The Font is also not one that I've seen on another Ron Cooper. Perhaps this was built by another Cooper.
See this thread for some beautiful Ron Cooper bikes.

I have had times when a post I made did not show up in the thread. When I went to my posts to see if I did actually post it, there it was. I click on it, go back to the thread, and there it is.

Maybe. The seller probably knows. It seems he experimented with many fonts.
