Sorry, couldn't resist. And I may not be able to resist buying this either for no other reason than those black lugs against the yellow. Also those cool old fenders and lights. I already have a white PX-10 in the same size . . .

😆. I love the UO8, actually--- I rode a white and black one for a while, and though it weighted a ton, it felt great to ride.... something magical about the occasional pug. I have a PKN10 that I got for like $50 which is still one of my favorite bikes to ride...

Dawes Double Blue on ebay (not mine)

I ordinarily don't post these kinds of things. But here's a listing for 63cm Dawes Double Blue:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/385171192715?hash=item59adfdfb8b:gYgAAOSw0NdiJjXY&amdata=enc%3AAQAHAAAAoLn30BHZVmKe5FbYHO7uRjZhjNF B9UeP5OWDLaPINsX2uZkqNYYRbiTkZmloZ6T1BGFfaJZW96VnKLB36ZZdfGN0gEguwaOGKYi%2FcrgxM7H67HrAnMnOxDI01E2ev CHtsCxRVjr7C8SKk6ZP8CpCnivYniJXUxBZrbKkzgO7UNpUExXOUATMK2az9pUNnfhthhQQDgQvuPmAAjcGJZeufpU%3D%7Ctkp% 3ABk9SR-ShnqOiYQ

It recently sold a much older DB of the same size. I don't want or need another bike, and I'm pretty sure I can resist this one. But if someone else buys it, I won't have to think about it again.

Re-listing - I got new pictures emailed from the seller and he put them in ad. Other new detail in bold in ad copy, ugh! - little Celeste bits peaking from the crevices.

Bianchi - $200 - Studio City, CA
https://losangeles.craigslist.org/la...563807742.html
"PICKUP MUST BE MADE by 12/18 10 am in studio city
I’m selling my father’s vintage italian bianchi bike frame. I scratched off the original paint, I was restoring it.
Needs to be picked up by 12/18 no exceptions. This is a bargain for a true fan of a vintage italian Bianchi road speed bike.
I’m moving and need to unload my storage facility. It’s my last day in L.A.
cash and pickup only/non-negotiable."

Here's a link to a BF post that contains a review of a 1978 Double Blue (from the February, 1978 issue of Bicycling! magazine, written by some guy named Gary Fisher). It looks about like the bike under discussion here, although with a lot less rake to the fork. The one in the review seems to have steeper frame angles, too.

Well, sure it's $12 because they are knock off wheels! Counterfeits are always cheaper than originals.

yes, I'd say so. It might be a later iteration (since seller says bought in '75) that got slightly less "deadly" with the addition of a steel pin inside the cast Alu, but I wouldn't bet my teeth on that!
