Basso Loto 57cm. $225 plus shipping Ebay and Pacific Coast Cycles. Would be a great project frame (not for me...I still can't get a darn BB cup out of one of my projects...)

One pic and not much info. Probably an '80-ish SE with Euro components and a newer leather saddle.

I think this one is pretty good for $100; cro-mo, downtube shifters, aero brake levers, 105, q/r rear wheel (front too?), Taiwan.

That DB ^^^^^^ is the Taiwanese successor to the Ironman, although with the 105 gruppo, it would be closer to an Expert than a Master. So yeah, a very good price, the cr@ppy photo discount applied.

This seems to be below FMV as usually see these about this price in far worse condition (probably needs a rebuild)

Batavus $300 ($230 USD)
Per ad:

Era, early 1970’s Immaculate in almost unused condition Rides and drives Heavy, very well made New tires and tubes An exceptionally rare find.

That fork is incongruous. You have to wonder what happened to the original. Check for crash damage.

This is listed as a mountain bike for some reason but it appears to be an ‘87 Trofeo which would mean Formula Two frame and usual mix of mid level Italian goodies. Including Super Record derailleurs. https://images.craigslist.org/00C0C_...2_1200x900.jpg

the post is 5 days old so there may be some wiggle room

This is extreme western NY https://images.craigslist.org/00Q0Q_...2_1200x900.jpg

it is listed as an ‘87 Giro but the decals say ‘88 to me. I’ll try and look it up when I get home but it certainly looks like a Formula II frame and Victory


**Update** Yes this is an '88 Giro wif Formula Two frame and Victory throughout. Judging from the condition I'd say the $500 asking price is a bit high

I think this is a 1980's Koga-Miyata Gent's-Touring. Definitely a project though.

Not necessarily. Replacing your steel fork with an ugly non-matching aftermarket carbon one was all the rage in the 90's. I lost my original Cannondale fork that way.

Any time you find a replacement fork on a used bike, it's best practice to check carefully for crash damage.
