Miyata One Thousand, looks to be a 1988 model. Not all original looking but probably a good touring base to start off with at this (to me, especially if in CAD and not USD) low price. Wish I were closer.

No drive side pics, though! I can't post links because I'm under 10 posts, but I spaced it out. Sorry if this breaks any rules.
I know the reputation the 1k has but i would not spend the going rate on one in very fine condition. That $300 isn't a bad price, others would call it a steal. For $750 though (like others call fair) I'd rather put those funds towards something newer. If one in my size comes along locally for a song I'd snap it up no question.

I just bought a Konno/3rensho Seqouia in Sacramento a few weeks ago. Looks like it had sold, but I would guess it is a late 1980 or 1981 from Konno based on some of the details. The ‘fast’ back seat stay rather than the wrapping, fluted seat stays seem to be the biggest tell. It looks very similar to mine.

Three of the Konno Sequoias have popped on Craigslist (this, mine in Sac, another in SF) in the last month but there were probably not
many more than 100 made.

e) From what I can tell, this is a 1981 Sequoia, which would be from the 3Rensho shop. Good deal. Thank god it's too small for me, or I'd be ditching work.

Anyone familiar with this model of Sequoia? I don't think I've seen that type of decal set (Specialized on downtube, rather than the model name) before. Looks like a Tim Neenan signature on the chainstay as well.



https://seattle.craigslist.org/see/b...160041129.html




Specialized Sequoia - Classic 1984 12 speed bike. Specialized described this bike as fast touring: It has all the braze-ons for fenders and racks for touring or commuting, but handling is a little more responsive: not twitchy like a race bike, but not hard to turn like a touring frame. It is a small frame: 51 CM or about 20” from bottom bracket to top tube. I am 5’ 7” with a 30 inch inseam and have about 4” of exposed seat post. With seat, pedals, lights and racks as shown, it only weighs about 24 pounds.
I am the single owner: Purchased bare frame and then built bike from selected components. The fame was designed in California by Tim Neenan of Lighthouse frames, the Specialized frame designer from 1983 to 1990 and made by Yoshi Konno in Japan from double butted Cro-Mo tubing and Shimano dropouts.

See photos.

Components:
Wheel set built in California by Wheelsmiths with Mavic French alloy 700C rims, Stainless steel spokes and sealed bearing Suzue 2D quick release hubs
Suntour Superbe side pull brakes and levers with Kool-stop pads
Phil Wood sealed bearing bottom bracket
Look style Shimano pedals with a set of unused cleats
Blackburn aluminum rear and bottle racks
Shimano 600 headset
Italian Cinelli alloy Stem and drop bars
SR Laprade seat post
Terry Liberator Italian gel saddle
Sugino 171 MM alloy crank set
Bluemels club special fenders from England (front repaired)
CyclePro 700 Discovery Kevlar belted 700C X 25, 115 PSI tires
Suntour cyclone M-II derailleurs
52 X 42 chain rings and 28-14 six speed rear cluster (I think it is 14-15-17-20-24-28)
6 Speed chain is just reaching its wear limit
RhodeGear mirror mount (missing mirror)
Planet Bike front light and unknown brand rear light – both work great

65” long x 16 ½”wide (Bars) x 51CM tall (Seat tube). 39 ½“wheelbase 30 ¼ “stand over height: perfect clearance for a 29” or more inseam, since you should never ride barefoot..

Looks like GT's version of a RockCombo/XO.

https://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/...160488668.html

1991 GT Continuum - $300


The frame/ paint, is near mint condition. This GT is part of their “crossover” series which was basically a gravel bike. This bike has the rare 700D size wheel (look it up) which was basically 650b before 650b was a thing. So the wheels will fit 650b/27.5 tires on them. You won’t even need new wheels to do so. The bike currently has Brand New pair of 27.5 Panaracer GravelKing tires mounted and I’ll include the old 700d tires and tubes as well. Eyelets galore on fork and rear and would be ideal bike for gravel/ touring. So many options you can do with this bike. It’s honestly just too big for me or id keep it.

Grand Jubile with all the goodies you would hope for. A little dirty, but Motobecane paint cleans up really nicely.

Interesting 70's French bike. Unique components. Huret Jubile derailleurs. Stronglite crank. Nervex lugs. Reynolds tubing. All original except rear wheel."

Probably worth it just for the derailleurs and crank.

Sheddle, The GT Continuum is too small and too far away for me. I do not know what the value might be. But I think it is a really cool bike and would probably check it out in other circumstances. https://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/...160488668.html

25-inch Windsor Carrera Sport frame on Chicago CL. I don't know where Western Springs is, so probably kinda far for me to go check it out.

I'd guess it's a minor overpay, but not at all unreasonable. I'd check it out but it's just too big.

Apparently there was a drop bar version a la Specialized RockCombo called the Tachyon which also looks cool, but was fairly rare.

I'd be surprised if it cost more than $400 new. Sheesh...

The spIEl reads like a copy/paste of a catalog listing. This would be more WackyWorld, if the bike were either C or V (which it's not).

Vintage Shogun like new - $350 (West Seattle)


Maybe about 50-100 too much but it's a cr-mo (straight gauge) mixte with a mostly intact original Deore group.

Specialized Expedition Touring Bike - $450 (Norfolk)



bicycle frame material: steel
bicycle type: road
brake type: cantilever
condition: excellent
frame size: 58cm
handlebar type: drop
make / manufacturer: Specialized
model name / number: Expedition
wheel size: 700C
Specialized Expedition Touring Bike - 1984. I had the frame powder coated several years ago so the decals are no longer present. However, this is a high quality frame in excellent condition with beautiful lug work. The year this frame was built they included bosses on the down tube for shift levers rather than the clamped shift levers found in earlier years. I have bar end shifters installed which work great. Includes attachment points for water bottles, fenders and racks.

Size is 58. I am about 5' 9" tall and this frame fits me perfectly.
Top Tube Center to Center is 56cm
Seat Tube Center to Center is 58cm
