Here, I'll do this right off the bat:

After our discussion about the Specialized Rock Combo, something began niggling me. It was like having Sheldon from Big Bang knocking on the back door of my brain.

Here's the bike from the ad asking $950:



After reading the specs on the RC, I realized that the bike design these guys were describing is a 26-inch Surly Long Haul Trucker! So I did a local search on CL, and found this for $900:

It's essentially the same bike, but with the lighter tubeset the designer BB had specified and the bottom bracket in the right place. Fifty bucks cheaper? This is the one I would go after.

@seypat - Aren't these models worth thousands of dollars?

There was a spirited debate about these on the valuations forum

​​​​​​Valuation Request Raleigh Portage Tour 1986?

Seems a nice area to buy bikes. I bought a Panasonic PT-4500 in Erie PA for $125 and someone (I think it was Obrentharris) got a Panasonic DX-500 for $150

Another Surly LHT, $750 For This One

https://minneapolis.craigslist.org/hnp/bik/d/minneapolis-surly-long-haul-trucker/7509299411.html



This one tempts me - but I don't have any more space. AND, I also happen to have a Raleigh Portage in my project queue. I might not wait for winter to do that build.
(edit) I fixed the link.

Couple early chrome Mongoose mtn. bikes. Rust at bottom bracket is concerning, but these could be worth somebody's trouble.

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace...rral_code=null

2 Vintage Mongoose Adult All Terrain Bicycles One Man's & One Women's 1980s I believe
$1

These will go to eBay soon, but I'd rather sell them cheaper here and let someone else make some money with these. I do not want to ship these, nor repair, etc. Sold as-is and they need repairs. Overall, not bad. But the right bike person can fix these up and flip them. These are very collectible. I am asking 200.00 for both. They both come with Blackburn Racks, which alone have some decent resale value. Strip off the lights etc, you might make a few extra $ also. Pickup in Elmhurst.
