Seller says "unridable" but everything about the description says "quick fix" to me.
Probably a great deal on a beautiful old Peugeot.

Needs some tuning but in fairly good shape. May need new tires.

For the usual suspects....

Centurion Ironman Expert - Dave Scott, Shimano 600, Tange 1, GORGEOUS - $350 (Denver)


This is not your typical Centurion Ironman road bike. First of all, this is the top-end Expert Dave Scott edition. Second of all, this comes with a complete Shimano 600 (Ultegra) Groupo, including headset, hubs, and even the pedals. Most of these only came with the Shimano 105's. Lastly, this is in nearly showroom condition. Not a ding, scratch or dent anywhere on the frame. There are a few paint chips here and there, but nothing that detracts from the over all look. It really appears that this bike has hung on the wall of a climate-controlled garage for the last 25 years. It's stunning in person.

The frame is a medium 56cm with a 31" standover height. The frame material is full Tange-1 Cr-Mo double-butted seamless tubes. Super strong, super fast, and super light. Both wheels are perfectly true, come with Araya rims, DT Swiss spokes and Shimano 600 sealed bearing hubs. Really a dream to ride. It even comes with the original old-school avocet computer! (It does need a new battery). These have sold for $350 on eBay with the 105 Groupo and in not quite as good condition. This is a steal at $350 cash / best offer. Call Chris - 303-xxx-xxxx. Thanks!

old Zeus frame, I can facilitate if needed. Gotta love the 'fully indexed headset'.


Weird Ancient Road frame zeus 57cm - $75 (longmont, CO)


Ok, another oddball. I am guessing from the late 60's. I don't know much about this frame- bought it complete for the components (full zeus), then ended up riding the frame for a while. I gotta say, i enjoyed it. Its a very nice frame from the period. Ask me, and we can discuss theories on its heritage.

Its very lightweight, has semi-horizontal zeus dropouts on both the frame and fork.

Chrome on the rear stays and the fork looks good. very pretty lugs.

Looks like it has been painted about 100 times, which at least means it isnt rusting.

BB is english thread, thank goodness.

Comes with fully indexed headset....

$75 obo

"I cant get the gears to work". Its amazing how many times that is written in an ad on ebay and CL.
Much of the time its a frozen cable that frees itself with a shot of WD-40.
Selling bikes on CL I've come to realize even a bicycle, with all its workings exposed, is still a complex machine to some.
Just cant imagine going thru life if a simple machine like a bike throws you for a loop.

'66 or '67 Raleigh Sport with pump and bell - $75 (South Shore)


Date: 2010-07-07, 6:14PM EDT
Reply to: sale-tmq6p-1830872267@craigslist.org [Errors when replying to ads?]

I am selling my uncles Raleigh Sport bicycle that came out of the back of his barn. Even better than a single speed, it has three! The tires still hold air and it still shifts and stops correctly. Much sought after Forest Green paint and it is complete with the original air pump, bell , saddle, fenders, and reflector. This is a cooool Comm ave cruiser! It has the expected rust here and there, but apparently complete and intact. Needs a cleaning.

Reply to: sale-dgy4w-1830020804@craigslist.org [Errors when replying to ads?]

For sale is my Zunow Z-1. This bike was handmade in Osaka, Japan. awesome bent seatstays/chainstays with a wishbone rear end. great vintage steel bike with mostly original Shimano 600 components. I only rode it off and on for the last year and the person i bought it from got it off the INterbike showroom floor in 1980. i was told he rode it only 4 seasons as a training bike. everything works fine, paint is 90% couple chips here and there(shown in image) but nothing major No dents. very good for a 30 year old bike. Many hummingbird engravings on the monostay as well as the fork crown and bottom bracket. this is your chance to own a handmade bicycle $850 Cash only

*i'm keeping the brooks in the picture, i will include a stock IRO saddle
*will include drop bars with shimano 600 brakehoods
the colors are more vibrant than shown in the images

Yes, it is gone, and as you didn't put up a pic or even a title from the listing, we have no idea what it was. Now I'll lay awake tonight wondering what it was I missed.

Not a big deal but when we can see what the bike was, what the asking price was, and what other info was in the CL posting it helps us learn about the market for these great old bikes that fascinate us so. Very few of us are actually going to go after a bike spotted here, but many of us read and learn.

Let's just say I'm strangely attracted to these bikes. You don't see them for sale often. I emailed the dude within 2 minutes of him posting the ad. Seems like a decentish price.

I am trying but no word back from the owner yet. This bike is my size and one I have been looking for for some time now. If I am not too late and end up with the bike (doubtful), I owe a big thank you to the one who posted it here.

Understatement of the day. You'd better hope someone doesn't offer him more before you get there at 5pm.
