Univega Vita Touring - $150 (Seattle)

Need to confirm frame size. Well suited for taller adults (6'+)

Usually only see the bottom end Lejeune models for sale (guessing this is mid-range??). Rims look trashed but RD/FD, shifters, brakes and levers should recover the investment if frame is rough.
Are those CLP brakes??

​​​​​​https://columbus.craigslist.org/bop/...422851002.html

​​​​​​

Lejeune vintage bicycle frame - $60 (Columbus

Vintage bike frame for sale

This is on the smaller side, though I donít have the exact measurement

It could use a good cleaning/shows a little rust and damage
$60 or best

Looks a lot like a seller not familiar with DeRosa Elaborata on eBay for $1699. Mixed bag and taller but 👍 https://www.ebay.com/itm/38440078135...QAAOSwIPFhRRXO

I think these usually sell for more but this is a dirty bike so can't tell if $125 might be the limit for it?

So is seller throwing in Campy with sale or the 600 stuff, or is it the mix in the photos? Strongly doubt it has 26in wheels.

70's Raleigh Professional - $400 (Biloxi)

70 something Raleigh Professional made in England, Reynolds 501 aluminum. Original Campagnolo wheels, hubs, shifter handles. When I acquired the bike in the late 70's, Gears and were switched to Shimano 600, brakes to Grande Compf.
I took pics of the other components. It has always been stored either inside,(as a bachelor) or in a enclosed garage (post-bacherlorhood). I paid $1000 just because I wanted the frame and was going put all Campagnolo stuff back on it.
It's 2021. I don't think it's going to happen. I'm too fat and the tires are too skinny! Wheels are 26" not sure how to measure frame.

I've noticed they look like a great source of cheap parts for a city bike project. I found a couple of those around here similarly priced and wonder why they're not selling for more. That's a lot of unusual parts for the money.

FB Marketplace default for items with no price entered by the seller, unless this one just happens to be priced at $1,234, but I'd bet against that.

Gonna go out on the limb here and point out that fork, the steel rims, the welds & ho-hum cyclo drivetrain are pretty much a dead giveaway that it wasn't made in the Rene Herese atelier.
The gargantuan factory in St Enteinne belched out velos de serie like this from as early as at least the mid 30s.
(I know, pics or it didn't happen ... but )
I had a very similar one that was painted and baged for Marsielle's local leisure cycling club which ended up on display at Firth & Wilson Cycles in Philly.
Still .... this is cool old machine
