Rossin is a solid value, early '80s and full SR with Modolo Professional brakes (they're an upgrade). $750 size 54 nice looking pearl paint. Not a steal, but ready to ride. Rossin, building great race-designed bikes, fun to ride.

It will remain censored.

​That's fine, but it's part of a word, not a full word. The site is (I think) implemented in PHP, which supports regular expressions (REs). The bad word filter might well be written using REs (if not, it should be). Matches should include the word boundary pattern (\b) to avoid messing up stuff like URLs. (Strangely enough, it failed to slide the first instance, but miles the others.)

From Humboldt Couny Craigslist:

Nishiki Olympic 12 - $165




The COVID tax is strong with this $600 Miyata. (May have been a cross frame?)




And, last but most... this $800 PX10. It's a nice bike, but dang... it ain't $800 nice. COVID tax? More like Ebola tax!

Speaking to the censorship surrounding bike sales, Craigslist recently changed what you can search for. Usually you can search for treks by the model number on Craigslist but not anymore with the 420, even in states where pot is legal you cannot search for ‘420’ when looking for a vintage bike

Miele Alfa for $250 - seems in Ok shape
https://www.kijiji.ca/v-road-bike/st...3141?undefined

Description

Needs new tubes or just some air. Bike in excellent shape



The key is noted in the reply by madpogue

Actually, for the level of bike this appears to be, at about $200US, in the current market that's VERY reasonable. But with just a single photo, zero detail information, and a bike that can't even be test-ridden, s/he'll be lucky if it doesn't languish for a while. Bike shops are booked solid, and people want "ready to ride".

Today I dropped off a 27in rear wheel for a friend in need. On way back saw a garage sale and pulled in and discovered it was the seller who had this Miele (and a second one) for sale. I looked it over as another person said he bet it was "worth $1500". I suggested $150 max.

The drive side pedal spindle was seized (shows signs of having been beaten in an attempt to remove and non-drive side is missing. This bike equipped with very dirty 300 Exage and second bike was RX-100.

Seller approached and said both bikes were $250 and that the rear wheel on the Alfa came from the 2nd bike. He then said that he knew nothing about bikes. I asked if the seat post and bar stem were loose and he replied he didn't know what they were. I pointed out the stem and he said he didn't care, that they were $250 with the parts loose or stuck and walked away from me.

I turned to the other person who thought they were expensive bikes and smiled and said, "Run, run like hell" and drove away.

Sorry if anyone thought they were worth the drive.

MKM with a ding on the top tube. middle of the top tube is probably the safest place for your bike to get dinged, but worth noting.

Full 531 and some gorgeous lugs, though. Shimano Crane is a bonus.

1975 MKM, made in Harrogate England by MKM cycles.

Lugged Reynolds 531 steel tubing.

Suntour shifters

Campagnolo front mech
​​

Shimano Crane rear mech

Sugino Mighty Competition crankset

Campagnolo track pedals

New chain, cables, and bar tape.

Bearings serviced, smooth.

Ready to ride. Sporty handling and fast.

Small dent in top tube, minor paint blemishes.

Wheels are functional but should be replaced soon.
Good for a rider about 5'4 - 5'8". I am 5'9" and I prefer a bigger bike.

If you like it and your size, I'd go for it. Brakes alone are worth a few hundred, and those are 1st generation 8sp Ergos. Mismatched wheels is the only issue I can see.

It will need sorting. It looks like it has a clincher front wheel and tub rear. The bike does look nice. Offer him 400 and go from there.

Colnago Master Lux - $1,500 (Wellesley)

Early ‘00s Colnago Master Lux with Columbus Gilco tubing. This classic road bike is light and fast. Weight as pictured is 19.5 lbs. Overall condition is very good. There is some minor pitting and surface oxidation on the chain stay chrome and on the head tube lug. There are also some chips in the paint on the top tube in the "racing man" as pictured and a few nicks in the paint on the down tube. The top tube measures 56 cm and the stem is 120 mm. This makes it fit large for a 56 cm frame. It is probably best suited for someone around 5 ft 11 inches tall. Full Campagnolo 10 speed Chorus drivetrain, shifters and brakes. Recently mounted Continental GP 4000 tires with less than 30 miles use. In excellent working condition.

Vintage Masi Steel Bicycle with Campagnolo Groupo - RED- 54 CM - $575 (Newton, MA)




Vintage Masi Bicycle with Campagnolo Groupo BRIGHT red with chrome fork
and chainstay.

CIAO !!!! I am selling my amazing 2 wheel work of art because I never use it.
Looks very similar to the bicycle in Breaking Away movie

Please read entire listing before responding because I list measurements and minor
issues.


I do not know the year or model because of missing decals.
I believe it is a late 80s Nuova Strada. Real Steel.
The previous owner said he pieced it together from parts.

The bottom bracket has a 3 digit number and yellow triangle.
It may also be a repaint, just looking at some of the scratches and bits, maybe just how it was hand made.

Masi Vintage Steel Bicycle
Bright red
14 speeds
Chrome fork and right chainstay
Super light - it really flies
Approximate weight is 19 pounds.
Lightweight Selle Italia seat

Campagnolo groupo everything: crank, pedals, seat post, brake levers
derailleurs, headset, shift levers, hubs, skewers, shift levers, calipers and even brake pads are all Campy.
Handlebars unknown because they are wrapped, but says 3ttt on the neck


54 CM frame because there is a 54 stamped on the
bottom bracket. Also 3 digit serial number at top.

Approx measurements:

BB to seat is 21 1/2", 54cm
BB to middle head tube is 24", 61cm

Top tube, 30 1/2" 78 1/2 cm
Seat to head is 21", 53 1/2 cm
Handle bars 15" center to center

170 cranks
700cm rims

ISSUES:
First, this bike is probably over 30 years old, so the decals are peeling and there are
some spots where paint is scratched
Chrome has patina / rust. Photos of stickers are from 2 years ago, they are all gone now.
Brake lever hoods are cracked, i have replacement hooods.
One of the pedal end caps are missing
Tires are like new, but tubes leak air.
Rear wheel needs minor truing.
The front derailleur chain rod is missing.
Biggest issue is one of the cranks has a few crossed threads on the outside.
Should be an easy fix to thread chase.

Asking $575

Phone call or email only, I do not answer texts.

Located in Newton / Waltham / Watertown.

Thank you.

It's been up for a while, such a mixed look. Good Lock! can also get in touch and see if they will take a deposit...
Is that carbon or fiberglass infill behind the head tube with a gelcoat? Very nice, that. DS rear drop is a little puzzling.
Cheers, Eric
