No gaspipe here, this is a stunning example in great shape IMO, I would love to help get this to you.
Dammit. I've contacted the seller. Meanwhile I have another bike in the post. And I'm still mightily resisting this gorgeous Trek 750. I have three other bikes I need to re-home, and this is a bad time of year to sell anything. It's hilarious I couldn't find anything for months, and then there are three.

Weirdly, I was never notified of the tag; I saw your post when I posted the Univega. I'm still glad you did; it's looking like I'm getting yet another bike. Gaia help me.

If anyone is looking for a nice Team Champion

I saw this one a few weeks ago when I was searching for one to buy. I finally found my '76. On the way, I corresponded with this person, who seems to be a good fellow. Original owner. I was very impressed with the condition of the bike. He was asking $1200. a few weeks ago, but the price has come down. I'm only sharing this link in case anyone here is seeking this model. I think it's a '78 to '80, 60cm.

https://portland.craigslist.org/wsc/...396461037.html

I hope it's ok to post this here. I read through the rules beforehand, but didn't see anything about this. I have no interest in this except to try and get a nice bike to a nice owner. Thanks everyone.

MODERATOR EDIT: Merged thread into "Are you looking for one of these!?" thread.

...there's actually a running thread for sharing stuff you find on CL that looks good. So it's not against the rules.

Looks pretty good with the silver graphics. Mine has the dark blue and they are peeling.

Great! Here's part of the email he sent:

If you know someone local who can check it out, I'm happy to let them take it out for a spin.

Caveats: Paint is not perfect... it has been touched up in a few spots - decent match but if you know it's there, you can see it up close. Rear brake pads are original (hard rubber = poor stopping ability) and should be replaced. If you decide to get it, I can take care of the pads or take $20 off the price.

Trek 2300 carbon frame/aluminum fork men’s road bike with 54 cm frame. Frame is older but in great condition. Needs new tires for sure, but could also use updated components in the near future. Was a great bike for my husband but he decided to upgrade rather than doing the work on it. Located on south side of EC, just need out of our garage now that we have a new bike in its place!

No idea but that "ring" above the DO on the stay is a identifying feature I saw once before and promptly have forgotten who did that. In any case there's enough there (Campy Super Record, Stronglight crankset, saddle, maybe a "Bernard Carre" stay cap) that I'd be running there waving $100 cash!

Too bad seller wouldn't ship - posted 6hrs ago. If seller would ship, I'd say keep the cranks and the BB and send the rest!

https://seattle.craigslist.org/see/b...402832776.html

Shimano Exage Sport/Mountain Groupset - $40 (Queen Anne)

If you are looking for a groupset to complete a project, or simply get your bike on the road or back on the road, consider the 1989-era vintage hotness that is this modest Shimano Exage groupset that is definitely used, but cleaned up and functional!

Comes with:

- How-did-he-get-those-clean brake levers (with faintly sticky hoods..), with quick release function (for larger tire setups)
- Standard reach (47-57mm) single pivot brake calipers with original pads (lots of life)
- 2/3 x 7 indexed downtube shifters that are definitely on the Struggle Bus but do function if you work with them
- Mountain LX 110/74mm BCD crankset with everyone's favorite Biopace chainrings, 50/44/28T half-steppin' gearing, and a totally-not-Shimano Suntour non-drive-side crank arm (surprise!) in the same finish, same length, and same crank bolt cap--I'm not asking questions
- Original 3-piece bottom bracket in decent shape, though the non-drive-side spindle race has pitting
- Beautiful front and rear derailleurs that cleaned up quite well--the white paint looks sharp!

These components were off a late-'80s Trek that I am refitting with modern components, but I wanted to go through them and refurbish them for future use. They worked before, and now; with presumably new cables, housings, chain, etc from you; will work even better. These are 30 years old, and of humble origin and intent, with time and chance having affected them. But this is all $40, so set your expectations accordingly.

Selling everything as is, for $40 cash. Local sale and pickup. Serious inquiries only, please. Thank you for your time!
