I'm going to go out on a limb and say that this will languish at $1,100 here.
Modern full-sus used bikes don't command that much, nor do the Y-11 and Y-22 nearby.

Trek 420 for $80 Broomfield Colorado (near Denver)
47 cm frame
https://www.facebook.com/marketplace...code=undefined
Per ad:
Road bike in fair condition. Probably needs new pedals as one of the plastic clips is missing. Tires hold air. Gears shift great.
** Needs new toe clip, pedals might be fine **
Pictures are bad but doesn't look abused.
I'm no where near can't faciliate

Not an irrational asking price at $300 given the finish is still looking pretty good. No driveside photos though.

a nice looking Lotus Odyssey, 58cm or so. The description indicates it has been refinished. The $700 starting bid/ $910 asking price are probably too high as of now, but may be worth starting a conversation if it is your size-

Gazelle Superlicht - size 60cm €119. Krommenie, the Netherlands

Gazelle retro herenfiets met leren Brooks zadel, 5 versnellingen - Marktplaats

I own a slightly crustier example of this but it was one one of the first derailleur equipped bikes by Gazelle, completely made from DB Reynolds 531 tubing. The later Gazelle Champion Mondial is a direct descendant from this model.

I've got 2 projects I'm working on at the moment. I'll keep looking at it and see if it goes lower. It's about 10-15 minutes from me. So, if anyone is super interested, make a deal and I will pick it up and ship it to you. I have a box/packing from a project that came in Monday. Spaghetti legs can vouch for me. I'm trustworthy. If there's something there that needs looked at up close, I could probably do that as well. Let me know.

Edit: I might take a look at it for potential buyers anyway. There's a lot of scratches there. Need to see if any of them are problem spots. Back hub/rim 36H, front 32H. One of the hubs might not be Campy.

This is actually a Titan 1/2 Trac mtb made in Eugene, Oregon. Sort of a neat piece of elevated chainstay history, and probably a bulletproof frame!

I cannot count the number of nice classic bikes I've seen with brake cable housings all kinked and folded over like that because someone thought routing them in front of the bars was tradition. I know an LBS owner who swears that's the only way. It seems that suspending logic and good sense is in vogue these days.

While I'm in the camp that believes cables should go forward of the bars, I'll have to admit that does look, and probably operates, pretty poorly. My immediate mod/upgrade to that bike would be a nice set of linear-pull brakes - maybe Paul Moto-lites.

Ended up giving the guy a call, because, why not? Seemed like a nice guy. It was a '64 Specilissima and it was sold a couple days back! He said the Gitane was a 60s model, really ornate lugs, size 54 or so.

$80 Raleigh - I rode one of these last year with 37mm tires and no issues

per ad:
Vintage Raleigh RA-500 road bike. Good used condition with new tires. Happy to have you test ride it. Great city commuter or cruiser bike. Could be used on pea gravel trails and as a winter bike on the road. If the ad is up it is available.


That looks very much like my Alyeska, though the Alyeska has cantilever brakes.
