It's a 23-in, i.e., a 58 cm. Here's the catalog spec on it - they were built with (Tange) Champion tubing that year.

Noticed that too. Apparently someone had the same reaction I did: "Holy crap, an intact '70s Gitane TdF for $70!" They ran, they did not walk.

A true piece of USA cycling history. Frame #70912 was told ridden by Dag Otto Lauritzen, ST55/TT56. ST cracked at BB, repaired early 1990's no problem since. It is my understanding this was a common problem and the reason for the switch to Eddy Merckx frames in 1989. Rear rim cracked/replaced, note 7-Eleven Cycling Team decal on the saved original. Original front wheel/rim cracked, note WOLBER lettering, spare Campy wheel and team clothing included with sale. Beautiful bike, ride or display.

Yeah, those pics... wow. Maybe using a circa 2008 cell phone camera, haha?

And that BB repair, looks like Dr. Frankenstein's work, but I suppose it's functional.

Sort of curious who got it repaired? Certainly not a team repair, they would have tossed it to the curb.

If you buy this then no excuses not to do maintenance. I had a Park 9 and it would lift when torquing on a bolt so maybe fill legs with sand?. Nice price though

never seen one before so unsure true value but judging by condition and components it's worth posting - and also the size!

https://denver.craigslist.org/bik/d/...357883539.html

Franklin road chrome moly XXL - $600 (Silverthorne)


Eye-catching classic custom build on a Franklin chrome moly frame. Stand over height approximately 67cm. This is built for someone who is tall, even very tall. Jack Trumbull is a custom bike builder in Ohio with a stellar reputation for quality steel frame bikes, and he has owned Franklin Frames since 1976. I had Jack re-paint the frame with the current two-tone fade paint job, which unfortunately the photos are too washed out to do it justice. See the older photo of the rear triangle, which gives a better idea of the purple shade. Jack said this frame was the lightest one he ever built, and he remembered it after 20 years. The frame still has no internal rust. See a similar frame in red on the franklin website Franklin Frames custom bicycles

The 8 speed drive train is dura ace STI. It has an italian threaded Campy Record bottom bracket, fitted with a Stronglight Speedlight crank. Dura ace chain rings complete the crank assembly. Rear cassette is dura ace note wheel hub shows zero wear and is new. Replaced fork with carbon unit this bike rides very smooth. The touring geometry frame includes mounting points for a rack and rear panniers. This would be a head-turning bike for commuting to work! Kind of like driving a dressed up 57 chevy. Im 64 and it fits me well. Unfortunately, I have way too many road bikes, and its time for this classic to see some use once again. I wont embarrass myself by saying how much is invested in this build, but I guarantee the selling price is a giveaway. $600. Silverthorne. I prefer text or email. Dennis

I would ask for a re-measure on this.
Looks more like a 22" frame with a 32" stand over but
.......maybe it's my eyeballs.

Not My Bike - Too Distant For Me To Facilitate

Raleigh International Bicycle - $50

Posted 2021-07-29 13:59



"I am the original owner of this bicycle. I don't think I've ridden it in the last 10 years. I had new tires / rims put on it about 10 years ago (best estimate). It has been in my garage on a bicycle rack mounted to the wall. Hoping someone would enjoy riding it. I don't remember the frame size (one of the pictures has a yardstick next to it). I believe the derailleur and crankset is Campagnolo. It could use a good cleaning (has some dust from sitting so long in the garage).

bicycle frame material: aluminum

bicycle type: road
frame size: Adult, see pictures
make / manufacturer: Raleigh
wheel size: 27 in"

I have one of these stands also. I bought a tray for it at rei several years ago. I haven't had any problems with it fitting poorly. Not sure of the model number of the tray.

Apologies for the thread drift.

Can't believe wasn't already gone. Stay tuned.
