Schwinn Town & Country on Facebook Marketplace in Springfield, IL for $200:


Cool chainguards. I know little about them (only what folks on CR post), but it seems to be pretty original. Seller says 1955, but maybe later?

Early 80's Trek 414 - $90 - Little Rock, Arkansas - too small for me, but if it goes any lower, may just have to come home with me

Nice. This, and the rare as hen's teeth 170 are about the only Treks I'd still want to try. Think this is a repaint? Paint looks awfully fresh.

Cannondale Delta V. Interesting.

Cannondale Delta V 700 MTB - $275 (Eureka)

image 1 of 9

© craigslist - Map data © OpenStreetMap
1000 B ST near Clark(google map)

bicycle frame material: aluminum
bicycle type: mountain
condition: good
frame size: Medium
make / manufacturer: Cannondale
model name / number: Delta V700
suspension: suspension fork (hardtail)
wheel size: 26 in
1993 Cannondale Delta V 700 MTB $275
3 x 7 Front derailleur is friction. Fork suspension.
Fully gone over.
Mechanic notes:
I have been unsuccessful in locating a adjuster cap for the headshot suspension. I have checked both Google and eBay and without any luck. The cap would cover the aluminum nut at the top of the fork. The aluminum nut has a yellow yellow Schrader valve cap. The nut turns easily by hand to adjust the shock function. Turn it fully clockwise until it stops and the shock will be firm. A half turn counterclockwise and the shock is active. It turns so easily that the cap is for all intents and purposes, cosmetic.
I did a partial rebuild on the shocks. I did not want to get into the 4 dozen needle bearings and the associated alignment of said bearings. At any rate. The shock is now holding its air pressure. And I got the lockout working ( better ). There is a clunking at the full extension of the shock that I have seen in other cannondale head shocks. I donít know if this is normal or not.
The Bike Kitchen is closed to the public until further notice but...
This bike can be ridden and purchased by appointment only (via email). We can coordinate a time to meet at the Bike Kitchen for a test ride. Please bring your own helmet if you have one.

Peugeot Super Vitus Tulsa area. Seller hasn't listed a price. It is a make offer listing right now so you may be able to walk away with it cheap. I was going to shoot an offer for giggles, but didn't
