Colnago Master Olympic Decor 63cm - $2100 (Cambridge)


Gorgeous Colnago Master Olympic Decor, handmade in Italy, in amazing condition with very few miles. Famous Columbus Gilco crimped tubes covered in famously loud early-90s Colnago paint scheme.
I purchased it in 2010 from the original owner. He had hardly ever ridden it. The bike has never been ridden in the rain and has never spent a night outside.
The bike rides beautifully. It is very direct and responsive, and the Columbus Gilco tubes provide a ride quality of legendary suppleness. It is a dream.
There are a few small scratches from storage; the cranks show typical scuffing; there are two very small and one slightly larger paint chip on the top tube (see photos).
I am not entirely sure of the year, but it appears to be circa 1994. Perhaps someone more knowledgeable can inform me. The paint scheme is incredible; the chrome is to die for. The bike and Campagnolo groupset are simply in gorgeous condition. There are no dents, and it has never been in an accident.
Everything on the bike is original except the tires, chain, brake pads, and bar tape. This is a rare all-original example of one of Italyís finest handmade steel bikes, as it was originally built up, and in an even more rare size. It is ready to go as a weekend-ride head-turner.
Full Campagnolo 8-speed groupset (again, I am not an expert and am unsure of exactly which Campy line; it is not Record, but one of the mid-level groups). Selle Italia saddle. 700c x 25mm Continental Grand Prix 4 season tires with plenty of miles come on the original Campagnolo wheelset. Pantographed 3TTT stem and bars in beautiful condition.
The bike had a full tuneup, with hubs repacked, in Spring 2019. My LBS has confirmed that the frame is in great shape.
The seat tube measures 63cm center to center, and the top tube is 59cm center to center.

Serotta Nhx 1989 - $850

Stunning Vintage Serotta Nhx beautifully restored to its original pearlized metallic red with yellow and gold accents. The Nhx model was Serotta’s first entry using a wishbone shape chain stays. The frame measures 56c-t or 55 c-c with a 55 top tube. Columbus SLX tubing troughout with very nice engravings on the fork crown abs brake bridges. The bike has been completely restored and built with a period correct Dura Ace 7402 Indexed 7 speed group with never ridden Matrix Iso aero tubular rims and Servicio Corsa tubular tires, unglued. 3ttt bars and stem combo 44c-c/100mm c-c.The Dura Ace group is in pristine condition and the bicycle has never been ridden since restored. Complete bike is flawless and was part of my personal collection of 25 vintage bicycles in my home.

So this has a story. I just rebuilt this bike and sold it at the Stop, Swap and Save swap meet in Md a couple weeks ago. I kinda of regret selling it so I did a search hoping to maybe find another one to fix up. I won't buy it back at this price, but someone might like it.

Uno Mas. This looks very interesting for the price. You don't see 753 frames going this cheap typically. I wonder how those joints are holding up after 30 years?

Lotus road bike. Pro Series 3000R. Teal and white. Circa 1989-91. Has been garaged for a long time. Needs TLC to get back on the road. Mostly original parts.

Beat up Bianchi -free (Capitol Hill, Seattle)

1991 model. Still rides though it has seen its days...

Frame 18" high, pedal to cross bar.

22" top cross bar length

Free


Have my doubts it's still available and I can't tell the model name (maybe a Sika?), but IIRC Suntour XC indicates a perfectly respectable MTB model. Almost certainly Japanese.


e) I believe it's a Nyala, only Bianchi ATB I can find with a five letter name. Think it's standard Tange MTB Crmo.

This isn't a TdF. It's much lower-end, Interclub or something maybe? Not Reynolds tubed, looks like a cottered crank possibly.

Nishiki Superbe, looks mid-70s plus or minus 3-4 years? Needs some cleanup. $150 start price, $250 BIN. Edit: Seller revised the bike to be $350 BIN a little while after I posted this - sad, I think someone would've bought it for $250, now I think it'll be lucky to clear $225 in auction format (but I hope I'm wrong)
