Here you go...I'm sure it was in much better shape than this one. Really, Bridgestone collectors drive up the price into new bike territory even for the beaters.

Thanks for posting the link - much appreciated. Pics are nice, but not essential. Some folks don't even put in a description - just a link. So again, thank for the post.

I think there's an unwritten rule that the bike sales you post here should be "a good deal". I break that quite rule a lot, figuring that the odds of a member here actually buying something posted in this thread (while it happens) is so rare, and number of legitimately nice bikes selling at fire sale prices is so few, that I just post stuff I like looking at, and don't sweat the asking price too much. Though I do avoid posting anything, no matter how nice, that's clearly an overpriced ripoff.

I think it is just interesting bikes that draw me here. Itís cool to see what catches each individualís eye...the posts almost have a snapshot of personality within them.

i am not here to see classifieds in California, but to see what local stuff catches BF membersí attentions!

$125. I'm relatively close. I could help facilitate.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

The 90-tooth chain ring was designed and built in New Zealand.
The purpose of this bike was to ride at 60 mph

Look at all that tire clearance. And Raleigh 555 tubing. But the best part is, the bike comes with a free 32" TV!

Augh, I need another one of these in my size. A nothing special bike but I love the partriotic paint scheme. Is is gone, sigh.......

This wouldn't fit me, and looks like it needs a full restoration. Obviously not a track frame, but looks like the real thing to me. I'm not an expert, though.
