1983 Gazelle Champion Mondial - $650 (Ballard)




Not gonna lie, the Gazelle looks really nice. But I'd really love to see more pics of that Microbus!

Ha! I know better.

I just happen to have a thing for the two-tone late 60s/early 70s microbus in that taupe/white two-tone configuration. Such a classic combo. The Gazelle matches it all nicely. Oh, and squarebacks too. Love some squarebacks.

Older bicycle - $40 (Eden)

"It's been a nice bicycle, it's very light, it's a 10 speed, the gears still work, the brakes still work, the tires may or may not hold air, it takes a special adapter to pump the tires up, and I don't have one. I'm asking 40 dollars. Text or call if interested.

bicycle frame material: aluminum

bicycle type: mountain

Tallish '80s Nishiki is probably worth the ask for parts, despite the lousy pix.

Not sure but believe this is priced low. I see the replacement fork but don't see damage to top or down tubes consistent with a collision. Finding a replacement fork might be a struggle

Jamis Eclipse for $100. Also, I don't see this as a 54cm frame

https://philadelphia.craigslist.org/...310093147.html

Jamis 14-speed racing bicycle. Just tuned up and ready to go for $100 cash. CR-MO double butted tubes, Shimano gears and brakes. Please text or email me with any questions -Jack

bicycle frame material: composite

bicycle type: road
condition: good
frame size: 54 cm
make / manufacturer: Jamis
model name / number: Eclipse
wheel size: other/unknown

It's a 1978 ____ (FD)

Edit: Xavier Schwartz was (is?) a frame builder/painter in San Diego, according to CR archives:
"I recall that Xavier worked for David Laffen at his bike shop in San Diego, then went on to have his own shops. He built frames for a while, maybe in the late '70s. I find a reference to him and his wife currently having the Q-Bikes shops in the Clairemont and Lemon Grove neighborhoods of San Diego."

I think the seller meant 215ST, not 275ST.

A hell of a cool find for someone tall. Nothing like that ever shows up on my local SGW

Coolest things I've seen recently were some newer extremely tall Seven, and an '04 Santa Cruz . Vintage stuff rarely rolls through, and I don't know why ... they'd make a mint with all the vintage folks I see bidding on stuff.

Anyone know what model this is? Seems like a pretty good deal for the bike + stand

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace...3205663963540/

Edit: Looks like it might be an '83 500? Seems like a decent deal if so.

I'm not a trek expert, but that seat logo was used in the late 70s/early 80s. The presence of a 501 sticker near the seat cluster would put this in the 80s I believe I was much better versed in these a while back. I'll just say, you can probably resell the stand for half the ask price, and being a 501 frame, I have no doubt you could probably "DKO" flip it (wash/resell) for $150-250 pretty easy.

You'd need to be about 5'2 - 5'5 to ride it though. It's smallllllll

Its a great deal, vintage lugged trek, with a Reynolds 531 sticker showing. By the time you search thru the vintage Trek site to find out, it will probably be gone.
If not, it’s because of the small frame size. Hell the stand alone has to be worth close to the asking price.
Actually on further examination, pic is blurry when expanded, may not be a Reynolds sticker on seat tube, still both easily worth the asking price

It's a 501 sticker.

Based on everything else, I think it's an '83 500. If it had a Super Custom triple, it would be a 520 (looks like the only notable diff from 500-520 that year is the freewheel and double/triple crank)

Listing is gone. But no, definitely not a Colnago. Looks like a low-end bike boom product, likely early 70s, maybe late 60s. I'm guessing British, but can't say without better pics.
