Put my heart at ease and tell me it's a 58! Be honest. I can take it.

That caught my eye as well. I called this morning and the seller said he already had someone on their way over to pick it up. It was posted at 8:21am, and I called at about 10am. Bummer. And I actually live in Bridgeport, so I can't believe I got beaten to the punch.

Vintage Trek 560 Road Bike - 54 - $125 (SW Portland)

Date: 2009-08-23, 10:51AM PDT
Reply to: sale-ftnuv-1338089743@craigslist.org [Errors when replying to ads?]

You are looking at a Trek 560 Pro Series 54cm with Reynolds 531 double butted tubing and a full Shimano 105 12 speed group. Classic Mavic rims. This was my first race bike and then it transitioned to my trainer bike. I would like to hold onto it but must sell to pay for a new cross bike. It is in good mechanical condition but does have some nicks on the paint and some rust spots on the top tube from time on the trainer. It is straight and true. It originally came as a 12 speed (2x6) but, I've been able to fit an 8 speed cog set to it.

This will make a great inexpensive commuter or an excellent classic Trek restoration bike.

Please email with questions and thanks for looking

dphi, I'm glad that bike is too small...it is a sweet deal. Trek's take on celeste that ended up more "teal" than anything.

No matter, I'm sure its gone anyway.

55cm Raleigh Supercourse Road Frame - $150 (Damen and Division)

55cm Raleigh Supercourse Frameset

Pretty cool Raleigh frame, from the early 90’s . This was a mid-level racing frame from Raleigh USA (not England). Fully chromed under the paint. Fairly light.Chrome is in great shape –paint is in decent shape with a few chips and scratches. Some of the decals have seen better days. All straight, no dents. Would make a really nice fixed gear or single speed road bike.


55cm Frame…55.5cm top tube

English threads all the way around, 700c wheels, recessed brakes, 26.6 seatpost

$150. Price is firm.



Thanks for looking

'84 Super Course, and it's 26.8. Note the Shimano-specific downtube shifter bosses.

"...'80s Schwinn Prelude..."

Being currently enamoured with Schwinn bikes, I'll point this out and try to be helpful to anyone who
might want to make a deal on it.

It's too small for me or I'd be in pursuit of it.

I must say - this is the first time I've seen one of these so-called "epic find" threads culminate with the OP posting photos. Most of them vanish as quickly as they came.
