Between the brand name, the wheel size, the description, the frame material and the photo, this is Wacky World material.

This is on its 2nd listing at $51 with crazy ship. If you're in the OKC area, the price of admission may be worth it for the core parts IF the buyer will allow local pickup ahead of time. Campy NR or GS front mech, Campy GS brakeset. Clearly based on crankset and mechs, the owner is totally incorrect, this is not all-original. I know nothing about the Takara Grand Touring, its tubeset or quality. I presume JP or TW origins here.

The above is a "legal" scam played on eBay buyers. The money is in the shipping fees. Sort of buyer beware situation. Almost never due these sellers with crazy shipping costs allow local pick up

Mavic group on the 7-11 bike is worth more than half the ask. Don't even. I swear, all the good deals are in AZ this year!

WOW! Very cool too small T Kellog 531, Campy DO, DeOre AX 600 Dyna Drive Ross touring.

A bit optimistic pricing IMO, maybe if it were the full Campy version.

I already have one and it's a really nice riding bike.
You and I know that but many don't see it the way we do, hence the negotiations.

54cm Merckx Corsa Molteni with all alloy 9 speed Campy Daytona - $950 (Roslindale, Boston


Letting go of my 54cm Merckx Corsa Molteni with all alloy 9 speed Campy Daytona. The frame was built in 89/90 nearest I can tell and has a beautiful flat crown fork along with internal top tube cable routing. TT is 55cm c-c, ST is 54 cm cc, and HT is 12.5 cm. Columbus SL tubing. Paint is very much showing itís age and could use a repaint in the future, along with some pitting in the chrome. No dents or dings thankfully. Groupset is quit clean. Crankset is 53/39 with 170 arms and a 13-26 cassette. I overhauled the ergos less than 500 miles ago along with new tape and cables. Wheels are Fir rims laced to Centaur hubs. Has a classic Campy aero post with well used Flite saddle. Can include Turbo as an alternative saddle. Chris King threaded headset along with 110 cm Nitto Pearl stem and 44cm Nitto 176 Dream bars. Pedals, bell, and bottle cages not included. $950 firm.

Looks like a Super Touring with Suntour Mountech. Nice work with the grips and basket, too.

Bridgestone RB-1 - $350 - Denver

My size and I will be in CO this week, but I already have one bike to bring back so this one will be for someone else. Good looking RB-1, but it doesn't look like the original Ritchey stem, true?

1993 Koga-Miyata RandonneurExtra in 57cm triple butted chromoly frame with partially chromed forks.

Asking price €300 but bidding starts at €200.

FYI, it's essentially the Dutch market model of the Miyata 1000 but with a stronger touring fork.
