If so, should this guy be posting in the equivalent of "by dealer"?

Agree with all,
Sorry but a post like this with the "move on" make me do just that....Poor attitude=poor response =no sale!

Schwinn Continental

No pictures, but the description is promising. Might be a nice project, and the price is decent.

I'm betting they mean $80 each which is still a pretty good deal.

I think they would be gone if it was for all.

Only one way to find out, give them a call or email. Could be the wife selling the bikes!

Even if it is $80.00 each that red Bianchi with what appears to be Shimano 600AX brake calipers, brake levers and headset is a fantastic price. If it's one of 4 bikes for $80.00 then it's an even better deal. A person could make a lot of money fixing those up and selling them.

Cheers

If only this was my size!! I'd buy that just for the fork. Can't tell if the provenance is true or not, just one decal but sure looks pretty. Maybe a Bianchi?

Great vintage Pinarello bike in really good condition. Rides really smooth and the brakes/tires are basically new. I replaced them about 8 months ago and never even rode on them.


Chain and gears work great and the bike itself is super light.


I believe its classified as either a track or a road bike but that's my best guess


I would also throw in the bike lock and wall mount we have since we won't be needing it anymore


We're going to be moving and wont be able to take it with us

Wow, rare to see such a great deal on a beautiful vintage bike like this here in Brooklyn. Normally, a bike like this would be priced unrealistically high in this market. Someone got a beautiful Italian steed, in that beautiful metallic blue, with all that beautiful pantographing and chrome, for almost nothing. That's just great, and I hope they're very happy with it. My only question is, why do I FEEL LIKE KILLING SOMEONE?!

Concorde with a wild paint job. I've never heard of "Trixie" and I suspect that's someone's custom decal, but does anyone know what this model is? Sticker says Columbus TSX.

1985 Raleigh Touring Bike (Not Raleigh USA)

Another cool Raleigh up here in Vermont. Looks to be pretty tall - maybe 25"? Made in England, Reynolds 531, nice chrome, and center-pulls. Doesn't seem to match any of the 1985 Raleigh USA touring models from 1985.


"Raleigh Classic 15 Touring Bike. The real deal. Reynolds 531 alloy frame. Hand built in Nottingham England. Original owner. Purchased in the UK in 1985 and toured throughout Europe. Went into storage and came out for another tour in 1992. Been in storage ever since."

I would be crying in my 7-7, without the NA 7.
I think I may know who snagged it but will wait for a report.

At $150 this Schwinn Volare is extremely tempting. Too many bikes or not if I were in the Denver area I'd be on this.
