Looks like a pure race bike...I'm probably a pass (tire clearance) but still sorely tempted and eyeballing it daily ...could be an uncommon gem for somebody.



(Yes, I also find the seatpost rage-inducing.)

With that fork and the doubled top tube and seat stays, it needs to be a quad so you have help carrying it.

I was going to take a selfie with it this weekend.

I have a Phil Anderson Motorola frame from the same era with the same top tube cable treatment. My understanding is that the cables on the team frames were external to facilitate quick cable replacement.

​​​​​​it really was not that "waay out there in the middle of nowhere", just a few miles off a major highway, exactly 1 hr from my house each way.
it was a beautiful morning for a drive in the mountains, and the seller was a nice guy. he has a Masi 3V for sale at this time, but it's too big for me.


Only been once to the entire state so was just guessing based on the map on CL. I think it was a very, very wise call!

1985 Peugeot PSN 10 63cm frameset with wheels - $200 (Lowell)






I am selling a vintage French made Peugeot PSN 10 circa 1985 with a 63cm Super Vitus butted steel frame, Stronglight headset, SR stem, Phillippe handlebars, Shimano 600 Ab brake levers and 700c Mavic tubular wheels. This was a higher end model of its day and popular amount tri athletes. The only issue is this frame requires a 26.4mm Quill seat post which isn't the easiest to replace. Sold for cash and pick up only. Please mention name, item, a phone number for a response all other emails or texts will be considered spam and will be ignored. Thanks

oh i get it. there have been countless times i've seen things for sale in western NC/eastern TN that look close (if travelling in a straight line), then i look on a map, and say to myself "self, while it is not that far geographically, where it is located, and the roads necessary to get there, it will take several hours each way just to get it, so i think it will be in our best interest to pass on this item". things can be pretty waay out there in the middle of nowhere around here, while not being all that far away as the crow flies.

i'm pretty happy with the Wes Mason, should be an interesting project.

Griffin - $250 - LA, CA
Dent in top tube
https://www.facebook.com/marketplace...tory_type=post
"This was a custom built bicycle from the mid-70ís built by Wilshire West bicycles of West Los Angeles. The frame is Columbus double butted, very light steel tubing. It is built around Campy Nouvo Record components, built by Jim Holly who was well known for his custom bikes and beautiful lug-work. Yes, the bicycle needs some TLC and a thorough chain and bearing cleaning, but she rides very well as-is. The top tube has a very small dent that literally happened the first day I had it, was admiring it leaning against a piece of furniture and it fell against the sharp edge of my coffee table. I brought it in to Wilshire West and Jim said it is nothing that would lessen the integrity of frame. I loved this bike and hate to see it go, but it hasnít been ridden more than 20 miles in the last 5 years. Itís about 23.5Ē, perfect for anyone over 5í9Ē. Will sell with my Ďbeautiful $300 Trek 410 sportí - BOTH for $450. "
