Know what you mean, but... depending on the seller, sometimes an offer to take everything (meaning really everything, not cherrypicking) will work out well, though generally requires a bit of conversation. 2 transactions like that, not too far apart in time, got me well on my way into the mess I'm in today...
If after talking with the seller, it feels right to leave it be, you can always offer to be a buyer of last resort, ( probably once the Colnago sells.)
PS I'm interested in the Guerciotti stem, if you ever get that far.

Cheers, Eric

The pictures are awful, but $500 isn't that bad of a price for an XO-2...

This thing has been languishing for months, maybe as long as a year @ $1000. Not the best pictures, I admit, but still a decent deal, no? You would think someone in one of the richest areas of the country could afford it.

Vintage project. Fuji Saratoga touring bike. Probably 80's vintage. 6 speed cluster, mix of Suntour, diacompe and Sugino parts. Tall Technomics stem. No front wheel. I believe the fork is a replacement.




Frankenbike? Fuji and Suntour seem to have relied on Sugino for cranks and Dia Compe for brakes. Suntour made the mechs and shifters. You could check the catalogs, but it probably shipped with those parts.

Looks pretty Franken to me, what with the replacement fork, front wheel, shifters, big chainring, stem, and mis-match tires.

It's not a true frankenbike unless the frame came from a junk heap and it has an Atlus M310 derailleur (the Super Record of frankenbike parts)

58/60cm? Looks pretty original, but can use some love!

after a little more internet digging, it looks to be an early 1980ís Pro-10 that is all-original I hope someone snags this one before me... save me from myself!

Terry Symmetry Road Bike - $150 (Somerville)


16" steel frame terry symmetry road bike. Great for SHORT women or teens (I'm 5'1 with a 26" inseam). Fantastic commuter or recreation bike. Frame mounted gear shift. Space for two water bottle cages. Comes with 5 tubes and new handlebar tape. Hasn't been ridden in several years, so needs a tune-up, but in solid overall shape. Contactless pickup Spring Hill Somerville, venmo before pickup.

Suspect as in bent or not original?

Looks to have matching grunge and fairly specific Reynolds decals too.

And seems to be straight aside from a bit of optical conclusion and maybe a bit of something going on at the lower HT lug paint.

Voorburg, the Netherlands
Marktplaats

That's a really nice big roadbike with FM-1 Splined triple butted cromoly tubing. I would be really tempted to buy this one myself since it is from the original owner with low mileage.

No response from the seller, by the way.
And it's back, for only slightly less than twice the price in the original ad. But this time you get a drive side photo.
