That is most definitely a Gran Sport. They're by far my favorite vintage Raleighs, aesthetics-wise. I love the light blue! The fact the stickers on this example are still in good shape is a good sign that it's been lightly used or at least treated well for the last 35 years or whatever. Maybe won't have the riding quality of a true high-end Raleigh of the period, but it is double-butted 531. I believe Gran Sports were the lowest in the line-up to have DB 531 throughout, above the Super Course's straight-gauge 531 main tubes. Also, cotterless cranks is a big plus. I say get it for $200.

It's hard to tell but the Brooks still appears to be in nice shape, too.

A 2009 1899$ tri bike for 550$ if I had the money right now I would part this out in a second...
I hope one of you gets this. I think it is ten speed ultegra dura ace mix.

I'm not actually interested, but perhaps someone here would be. If I bring home another bike, my garage will explode (it holds many, many other things).

Really wish I had the funds for this bike. I sold a Grand Turismo a few months ago and have been longing for another Univega. This looks like a really solid bike too, Tange champion and Arabesque 600 group, sweet. Would be willing to facilitate

Oh man. I had a chance to buy the mens version of that bike and passed on it. I saw made in Italy on it, but nothing that said Bianchi. Argh.

Reply to: sale-mww7k-1950833563@craigslist.org [Errors when replying to ads?]

Early 1990s classic hand-made Casati steel road bike frame with Columbus SLX tubing, tuning fork seat stays, and chrome lugs. Comes with Campy Chorus bottom bracket, 172.5 cranks, and Chorus headset (headset is pitted and would need to be repaired). This is a solid frame that is in good but not perfect cosmetic condition.

Super Fast 56 cm 'Cilo' Road Bike - $400 (Central Sq)

Date: 2010-09-13, 9:07AM EDT
Reply to: sale-aumaz-1951139743@craigslist.org [Errors when replying to ads?]

The frame, made in Switzerland, is lugged cro-moly steel with a beautiful chrome fork. It's strong and lightweight with minimal rust and no dents. All components are Shimano 600, great original parts that are known for their durability. It has an 16-speed drive-train with down-tube friction shifters. The cassette was replaced three years ago and shows little wear. The front wheel is an 18-spoke Rolf Vector Comp and the rear is a Shimano. The tires are Specialized Armadillos, which are Kevlar reinforced and extremely durable.

The bike has gone through several repairs in the last year including:
- A tune-up and thorough cleaning
- New brake cables and housing
- New brake pads
- New Teflon coated gear cables
- New Chain
- New cork handlebar wrap

Overall the bike is in excellent condition. I am only selling it because I am 6'2” and it is really best suited for a rider around 5'10”. If you would like to schedule a test ride, email me with your availability. I'm located off Western Ave. in Cambridge, about a 10 minute walk from Central Sq. on the red line.

If you are reading this post then the bike is still available.

Rare, tiny, abused. Save it! 800 is too much for this set of parts IMO.
