Horrible part - it is my size using my eyeball ruler.

Given the condition of the chain, it probably could use some TLC all around.

Huh? He couldn't find vintage-trek? A search on "Trek serial numbers", vintage-trek comes up THIRD. Add "vintage" to the search and it comes up FIRST. But he guessed well, it's an '83 620 family.

Not sure about these as Moto's, maybe Dutch, pretty dang cool and I have never seen one like this whatever it is, I'd snap it up in a heartbeat ifin it was close to me and screw up 5 or 6 other deals I can't seem to get a handle on.

That’s a Terry style ‘87 Sport SX but it looks like the Suntour RD, shifters and rear wheel were swapped out for 105. Other than the Terry style nothing too rare about this.

Not a high end bike but I think it's a cool package. Price seems high but I do like that frame lock and original fenders

​​​​​​https://washingtondc.craigslist.org/...457823245.html

​​​​​​

Retro vintage Swedish 10-spd Crescent road/city bike, blue/aqua - $200 (Springfield)Selling an interesting vintage Crescent city bike/road bike. Swedish made, likely in the early 1970s. Evidently, it is a rare aqua blue/green color, as most similar models were made in Pepita orange.

It has a medium size frame, 10-speed drivetrain (working well), built in light with generator, built in cargo rack, built in wheel lock, kickstand, fenders, index shifters, and a unique shag saddle cover. Brakes and shifters are working well.

The bar tape is unraveling a little bit, and both tubes are flat. My pump will not work with these valve stems. They could both use replacing, but I don’t feel strongly like doing it…. I will replace them if you add an extra $50 and pay in advance as I’ll need to buy the tubes. 27” wheels.

If it’s up, it’s available! Reasonable offers considered.

Univega Gran Touring - $200 (Knoxville)


1985 ish Univega gran tour. Some surface rust on some components but overall it’s in great condition and works great. It’s a chromo steel XL frame at 65cm. I’m 6’4” and the current seat and handlebar height are very comfortable for me. Would probably fit someone between 6’1” and 6’6”.

Originally came with 27x1 1/4” wheels but I’ve got 700x38c on there now. Tires and tubes are old and could probably use replacing.

Currently setup as a friction shift 3x7 drivetrain. The microshift shifter can be switched to 8 speed index shifting if you want to upgrade the drivetrain.

$200 obo Venmo accepted

14 Speed Paramount Road Bike - sweet townie or commuter or trainer! - $100 (Littleton)Selling my 14 speed road bike. It’s super smooth but I’ve out grown it. Probably a 56cm / medium frame, great if you are between 5’7”-5’10” or so? Come and ride it!

Super clean, downtube shifters work great, and it’s ready to ride. Could be good for your first triathlon, a commuter, or just a bike to get around town.

Call. Email. Text.
