I usually don't pay attention to stuff on CL over a grand, but good lord. (I'm almost positive I've seen posts about this specific restoration on C+V, by the way)

1960 Urago; 62cm - Reynolds 531 - $1300 (Portland/Corvallis)


https://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/...088173639.html







A "spare no expense" effort was made making certain this build was done to the highest standard possible.

Consumables (brake pads, cables, housing, bar tape, etc.) and Soma rims/spokes are modern. The Mafac calipers have been rebuilt with Rene Herse (Compass Cycles) hardware. Other components were specifically sought out and have seen very little use, if not NOS. However, the chain and saddle have survived for decades and have loads of life still left in them..


The bicycle is currently located in Corvallis but there is potential for delivery in Portland.

For more images and details about the restoration see here:

It is, but it's at least perhaps a little easier (or a lot) when it's your own bike and you know how it got that way. That and you know how well all the components operate, so simply cleaning it is just a cosmetic exercise and nothing more .

this looks like a gorgeous city bike- and has a Bridgestone Kilmatic indexed deraileur (made by Suntour) which looks super cool, and I've rarely seen here.
Bridgestone Klimatic GTL (2nd style) derailleur

Japanese bike, Bridgestone. - $175 (NE Portland)

This bike was imported from Japan, 18speed. Medium frame. Bridgestone front light, operated by the front wheel, no batteries needed. Removable front basket. Great for going grocery shopping. Must sell. $175 or best offer.

I just realized that the light is on the right side, correct mounting for Japanese streets, but the wrong side for US and continental roads!

Which means it would be fun to throw some cool paint on there...

Not a fan of the kickstand placement, though it looks sturdy enough.

Now that you mention it, I see overspray on the chain, the rear derailleur cable housing, the cable itself, and there's either overspray on the shifters or the paint is reflecting on them.

I've not heard of these before (or maybe I have but just forgot). Look like they might be contemporary with Hi-E, Phil Wood, etc. Uploading a few pix from the ad so they don't disappear entirely.

Rear axle kickstands have made a resurgence and they do work. Greenfield makes a nifty alloy one.

Columbus Air is early ‘80s? I don’t think that is Super Record, looks more like Victory. Nice paint scheme though

Bianchigirll I did give the seller a heads up that copy and paste from websites isnt the way to go. He thought it was a La Biciclissima model.

I was able to match it with a Competition but left up to him to update his ad.

Those showd up on the CR list a couple years back. (Exact same listing). The consensus seemed to be they were ACS BMX hubs, that had been polished and re-branded. Nice, but not $1500 nice.

That's just painful to see. Looks as though it was kept outside (or in a drafty shed) for much of its life. If truly "early '80s" then it might well be one of the more-desirable frames. No indication of the model. An interesting refurbishment project for someone looking at 23in MTB frames.

Biplane fork suggests pretty early, so I'd say "early '80s" is accurate. The "weathering" doesn't look that bad, at least it appears intact/complete. Seller has to post pics bigger than a postage stamp, however.

And +1 on the geometry; that bike is in two ZIP codes at the same time.
