Nope, not a fake sticker. The LeTour Luxe model was indeed made with Columbus Tenax tubing -- double butted main tubes, chrome-moly stays, stainless steel dropout faces. Looks like original components, too, in good condition.

Small '72 Raleigh Competition in the Atlanta area, I've always liked this style of lug. Seller unfortunately only offers closeup pics, no overall view. IMO, $180 is a bit much considering its condition. Badly neglected and will take a lot of work and a few dollars to bring back to life. Still, may be someone's cup of tea.

Nice bike. Seller seems a little unhelpful. No description other than it is the "Ferrari of bicycles" and he "know what I own".
How about what model? Or size? Or groupset?
Honestly, I have no idea why some sellers are convinced everyone is trying to rip them off so they post a tough guy listing like this...


https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/803822760315716/

1990 vintage Tomasini bicycle

Outstanding condition 1990 Tomasini bicycle (the Ferrari of bicycles). Cash only. Do not waste your time (& mine) if not ready to produce the cash. $1,000+ ok, thank you; $1,000- do not even think about it: I know exactly what I own.

Not the only one in existence. I have one just like it, well this is after I changed mine over to late model Dura Ace set up, but I still have all of the original D/A components identical to what this listed bike has. His is a great example of a survivor though. Beautiful bike.

Pretty impressive for $150 even with rust spots

​​​​​​https://cleveland.craigslist.org/bik...364160813.html

1988 Schwinn Premis - $150 (Elyria)The Premis was only manufactured for one year. It has a Columbus Tenax main triangle and from what I've read weighs in at only about 22 pounds. The seat tube is 21 inches. The color coordinated components include: Suntour Cyclone 7000 rear derailleur, Cyclone front derailleur, Suntour Accu-Shift indexed shift levers, Sakae FX super low profile crankset, and Dia Compe sidepull brake calipers. The other components include: Aero Compe brake levers, Weinmann 700c alloy wheelset, Sakae alloy seat post, Sakae handlebars and alloy stem. This bike also has the original suede saddle. No holds. First come, first served. Cash only on pickup. Item located in the Eastern Heights area of Elyria. Thanks for looking.

Mid 80's Altec w/ 6 speed D/A

Saw this today on Humboldt County Craigslist. Seller will ship.





https://humboldt.craigslist.org/bik/...363772403.html

I don't think I've ever heard of Altec. Interesting bike, and in my size no less. If I had a spare 800 bucks laying around, I'd probably buy it... but I don't, so I won't.
