Not cheap, but not outrageous either. And I believe this are fairly hard to find.

Was checking eBay, and noticed this. Since VO is popular with the C&V crowd, I thought I'd post about it here.

https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_dkr...ge%20handlebar

The vendor has a number of different VO handlebars. Models available are the Postino, Tourist, Wavy, Porteur (22.2 silver and 23.8 black), Milan, Klunker, and Granola (silver and black). Clamp sizes appear to vary by model.

Be advised that the vendor's listings are quite terse and somewhat lacking in detail. You'll need to know enough about the bar in question to know if it's what you want. But many if not all of the prices seem good.

I've done business with the vendor, but have no other connection to them. My dealings with them were excellent.

Probably could have gone either way, looking OR wacky. It doesn't seem like the seller really knows what that is, a BMX F1 bike for a short lived spinoff of BMX where they were raced on paved downhill courses, riders in full face helmets etc. The BMX F1 bikes pop up quite a bit, but one from Cyclecraft probably is pretty rare.

Seems like a huge premium for the seller’s sentiment value. Doesn’t look very well taken care of & with no decals. He is about 4X on the price.

Thats actually a ‘92 and pretty nice example. Personally despite the Columbus frame I’d take this Infinity tubed RX100 bike over the ‘90 CdI any day. The ‘90 was still wearing that unimpressive Quattro groupe.

Interesting tidbit the ‘92 CdI and Eros were pretty much the same bike except for the triple.

from what I can see in the FB ad (not very good pix and even less description) it MIGHT be a legit Super Record Export Cyclone but cannot confirm 100%.
At least it has a legit-looking fork but unusual (for me) to see one that's all-chrome-plated.
It would be a very good price if can be verified.

^^^^^ Given how it's built, with the Brooks, the barcons and the bags, the price is perhaps only slightly wacky. What's wacky is the seller's assumption that it will "sell itself" at that price. If that's the entire text, and the best photo (are we buying a fence/arbor?), he went out of his way to post a "crappy-ad discount" ad.

There's a lot going on there, almost enough to distract from the chewed up lower on the fork. At least they're riding it hard!
