Bike is in really great shape for the age. There are some scratches and scuffs and will most certainly need new tires and a tune up

Wow. I was joking based on that decal font but it was actually true! Interesting that Raleigh spawned Centurion. I always thought it was a Japanese company from the start.

Makes sense now about the decals!

Because the bikes had all been intended as Raleigh Grand Prix models, as Centurions, they carried the colors of the Raleigh America Grand Prix model."

Early LeMans. By the 80s they were using various combinations of Tange Champion no. 2. My filthy example from the Clunker Challenge this year is this one's much younger sibling.

Very nice vintage French racing bike. The Spidel group alone is worth more than the asking price.

That red Frenchie is very tempting. Shipping makes it less so. Someone really should go check it out

Lets see if I can get this link for this BEAUTIFUL little lavender Univega to work $450 Celina OH.

That red CNC is exceptional and you really might want to consider it. The stay caps and lugs seem to indicate a Bernard Carre build when he worked for CNC/Thomann and the equipment is excellent.

I stumbled upon this great looking 620 advertised to be an '83. The seller is asking $400 but it seems to have been posted for almost three months now. Ft Wayne.

As it's a 23 inch frame, It would be too small. Then there's the shipping from west coast to here, then duty at the border.

As Ontario Covid numbers are starting to double again I anticipate another lockdown and since the Biden Whitehouse says it doesn't want Canadians entering the USA right now, if we do another lockdown here I bet we'll see the border closure extended until September 21st (or later). That means no day trips to get it so I'd have to add $150-200 US to the total to get it here which is more than I can throw at a whim.

And besides, I'm still smarting from being ghosted by that @$&/!?*" Peugeot owner.....

No. Those are 650c wheels, it's a tri bike in a medium size.

Not a great deal but this old touring Cannondale looks like it was hardly ridden. Too small for me.

Celo Europa was an American importer for Colnago and the house brand (if Im not mistaken). Practically a genuine Colnago. At this price, seems like a great deal to me!

e: And yes, I feel like it may be a repaint based off that second photo.
