Would somebody help me get this? I'll buy you a big fat hamburger for your trouble.

I'm serious about the trike and can probably improve on the reward part.

Centurion Turbo - 12 Speed Racer
22"/56cm Lugged Champion 1 Frame w/Suntour Dropouts

Stripped - Cleaned - Degreased - Regreased - Rebuilt

Original 700c Wheelset (Araya Rims/Suzue Hubs)
Original ARX Alloy Stem
Original Sakae Champion Alloy Drops
Original NGC Single Pivot Calipers/Levers (New Gran Compe Brown Anodized)
Original Sugino AeroMighty Crankset/Chainrings
Original Suntour Superbe Front/Rear Derailleurs/Shift Levers
Original Suntour Superbe Pedals

Velo Quintana Roo Racing Saddle

NEW Chain
NEW Kenda 700c Tires/Tubes
NEW Profile Tape
NEW Shifter Cables

This little rocket really flies...

Been following this one for a while as it is in my back yard. It is one of the nicest examples of a Turbo I have seen and is the 1984 version with Sugino Aero Mighty cranks, Superbe Pro derailleurs, etc. Fortunately, the owner was negotiable but only to a point. Now I will be looking for a period correct saddle to replace the Velo QR (will put on another bike as I like this saddle).

Congratulations! Pretty high powered stable the Turbo is going into! Hope you can make it to one of our Chicago C&V rides (on whatever bike), whenever we pull another one together.

Keep me posted on that, Al. Oh yeah, I am partial to riding my Fuji Club. Very comfortable bike to ride and holds up well under my 235 pound girth.

that's one heck of a good looking bike, and it's just my size. (Just about everything is when you have zero bike budget).

Ok, on the off chance that one of you lives near Corvallis, OR:

https://corvallis.craigslist.org/bik/1873745373.html

I bought this bike new and its still in good condition. I have a nice blueish green Maruishi bicycle. the frame and brakes are in good shape although though the it needs new tires they pump up but they are to old to keep pressure. It has a light that is powered by the back tire but im not sure if it works it is all intact and not visually broken, it might just need a new light bulb. the bike has been well taken care of over the years and has been owned since new. the frame is very clean and it had clean round rims, but the chain is rusty grip tape is falling off on one side and the tires are old. other than that i have a very nice light street bicycle.
I am absolutely desperate to make this bike mine and would be eternally thankful if someone could facilitate this! I already actually own a Maruishi Tour Ace 15, purchased six years ago from Bike Works when they got a dead stock load of these in. The bike has been very, very good to me, and we've been attached at the hip ever since. Then last week it got mangled while it was locked up to a pole in midtown Manhattan; I suppose a car backed into it. It's an understatement to say that I'm extremely bummed out and have a "maruishi-shaped hole in my heart" (as a commiserating friend of mine put it), and have been looking for a replacement, but nothing has caught my eye. And now I'm floored that this guy Gavin is selling my exact bike--model, size, color, everything is the same as my mangled one!

If there's a gracious Portlander (or other area local) who would be willing to get over to Corvallis to purchase and pick this bike up for me and then send it to me in Brooklyn, I will happily send paypal or personal check to cover not only bike cost & shipping charges (of course) but also $50 extra for your effort. Plus not for nothing, my undying gratitude!

I know there's going to be heavy interest in this Mixte...three bikes, all interesting. Deleware is a decent haul from me, but it's possible I could assist if he's willing to meet at a train station and if the person is willing to reimburse me train costs.

I need some garage space, and I've only got two legs so it's time to thin the bike collection. Email me at the craigslist address above and I will respond with my phone # - or leave yours and I will call. Like it says above, I am a short drive down I-95, 18 minutes south of the airport. Thanks for looking. All of these bike ar reasonable priced, in great running shape, and some are extremely hard to find in good condition.

First is a 1992 Schwin Paramount Series 5 PDG. All Shimano 105 Components. 58cm frame, excellent condition, 19lbs, 3TTT stem and bars, internal cables. This one is hard to part with as I am the original owner. Paid $750 for it back in the day - that was alot of money for a bike then. Ask any Paramount owner, Waterford or PDG, and they will tell you the same thing - they love their bike. $275

Second is an extremely rare Batavus Criterium mixte, unknown year guessing early 80's. Made in Holland (says so all over the frame), 53.5 cm frame, lightweight, cool Batavus headbadge, nearly mint condition, awesome colors and graphics. Very few of these bikes made it to the US, so I would jump on this one. $260

Third is a really cool Bianchi Folding Bike. Late 70's-early 80's era. All Italian made Frame and components (again, says so all over the frame). Great chrome and functionality with integrated rear rack. Put all new cables and tires on this one a few months ago. $150
