"$100 and up" seems a tad... optimistic for that crusty Dawes pulled out of an upstate NY basement/grotto

So, i'm lost following this conversation. Which is a better bike : GJ or GT? I like the look of the one with the rack and the upright handlebar. Is that a GL?
Thanks

BIG...CHROME....Raleigh Teton for $400 in NY. Mighty shiny but probably overpriced and not all original.

GJ is higher, GT's are no slouch either. GJ is 531 with French, GT is Vitus with Japanese components, both are very nice.

The upright bars are on a Grand touring. Still an excellent bike. The fork isn't as nice but ive ridden gt bikes and diamond frame or mixte they are excellent.

Thanks for the clarification. I got a centurion Le Mans made in Japan with suntour components and really enjoy putting around on it. I like the look of mixte with the upright bar rather than the drop bar.

Good seller, long story. I have purchased something from/through him (he is acting as an agent, is not the original owner).
Solid guy, easy to deal with, packing was excelllent and shipping swift.

Hmm, that's interesting.... and not too, too far. Apparently Better was more of a touring bike builder- I wonder what the story is with this one. Had my eye out for something steel to build up as a 650b conversion for a riding pal who's skinny-tired aluminum bikes make me feel bad. Ugly color... and no eyelets.... but Reynolds, good parts..... hmmmm.

If you're nearby, that's a no-brainer. Flip the crank and the rest is free.

the pic of the follis looked like the seat stay had a dent. I asked the “seller” and he said yes unfortunately looks like someone clamped a rear rack too hard and “crimped” both seat stays
