The XT thumbies and brake levers have been replaced by nasty modern units, but the price is right.

I'm curious about the steering (it must steer like a canoe!). The ad says it's using drum brakes.

Oh yeah; I usu gloss over the "boxed" data, since so many CL'ers mistakenly think they're required, and fill in a lot of nonsense for items they know nothing about, rather than just skipping them.

to the extent that that thing "works", I'm guessing its intended use is parades, or something like that.

I had a pink 770 and it is the best riding vintage bike that I ever had. You should buy it. And ride it.

This one can't top that for price/value, but it's a nice combination of "Finds" and "Wacky World" (and possibly for the IM thread). Zero pics, pitifully little info, most of which is wrong:

In the alternate universe known as Budget Bicycle Center in Madison, Wi ... "PX50s routinely sell for over $1k."

This bike will certainly sell to a buyer who is equally detached from reality. It is Billyburg after all.

$850 can get you a vrai-vrai 60s/70s French 650B ranndonneuse if that's what you're in the market for.

Rather spendy, but these don't pop up very often. If you have a wall hanger Japanese bike on which SunTour Superbe components would be de rigeur, these might be that final finishing touch. I wouldn't call the seller desperate, but the price started at $129, dropped to $119, and was just offered to me (and everyone else watching, I presume) $109. I watched them out of curiosity, not because I intended to bid or buy.

Does anyone want a $450 bike for $1200??

https://boston.craigslist.org/gbs/bi...183881709.html

Scapin w/ Campagnolo hardware - $1,200 (Cape Cod)

Incredibly Rare collectors
Bicycle.
Built by world reknown
Italian Bike builder Umberto Scapin.

If you are not familiar
With these collector bikes,
I would suggest looking them up. Highly sought after and incredibly rare.
Especially this era model.

The Frames alone sell
For $750-900
On ebay.
They usually only pop
Up for Sale once a year.





The bike has full,
Campagnolo Victory
Hardware including hubs.
3tt handlebars with Engraving of Olympic Rings.

These do not show up in America often.

Serious inquiries only.

See the low price of the Cilo?

https://boston.craigslist.org/gbs/bi...183330690.html

Cilo Road Bike 54cm Shimano 105 - $250 (Jamaica Plain)

Good condition Cilo road bike, frame made of Tange 1 steel. Itís 54cm, so best for someone 5í7-5í11.

The seat post, bar tape and break hoods are brand new. It has all Shimano 105 components, downtube 105 shifters, 6 speed in the back. The shifting is smooth, the break pads can use a little re-aligning.

Itís a really good looking bike that can go fast. And is ready for a home where itíll be used and loved.

Based on the frame/fork colour I think this is a 1990 Fusion. Original RM catalogue here; https://www.bikes.com/sites/default/...%20English.pdf

Oooh, me, me... At least it's not as rusty as I would expect on the Cape. By the way, that bike has Campagnolo "hardware", OK?
