@baroo Here it is. I seem to see the aluminum Treks not getting as much love as steel so this might actually be on the high side!

WGB thanks. From a fun trip through old threads on 1400s, seems like getting it down $200 would be a good deal, and I think the 1400 also has an aluminum fork, which might be a drawback. And I'm reminded again how inflated NYC bike prices are!

I worked in a Trek dealership for years and never saw---or heard of---one of their aluminum forks failing. In fact, about 4 years after they began phasing out their steel road frames in favor of aluminum, I asked our Trek sales rep what effect that change had had on their business. He said that the people in their warranty department were happy, because the aluminum frames and forks were proving to be more nearly problem-free than the steel ones had been.

Makes sense---epoxy-based construction is obviously going to be less stressful for frames than brazing. So I wouldn't worry about the fork. I don't worry about my two aluminum bikes with aluminum forks. One of the two is my favorite bike, in fact, and I've owned plenty of high-end steel bikes.

Man, why are these tall French bikes that are decently priced far away from me? Not too keen on the wheels, but that's pretty nice looking.

I wasn't critiquing the quality of the bikes, just the appeal. I'm simply saying people seem to dismiss aluminum Trek bikes and so they seem (to me at least) to sell for less.

2 Raleigh's - $650 - Pittsfield, MA
https://westernmass.craigslist.org/b...565041314.html
"The perfect projects to fuss about with to pass the winter. I have two mechanically rebuilt, ride-worthy vintage 3-speed Raleigh bikes for sale. A circa-1951 23" black Superbe, serial number 38430BA. Amazing original finish with most of the pin striping and decals intact. Chrome plated rod brakes, new tires, Brooks seat, luggage rack and a generator hub in the front. I have the lights, just not currently installed. Newer hand pump and kick stand. The second is a circa 1945 woman's 21" Superbe. Serial number 265042P. A dark green color, original finish that is faded. Faint pin striping and some decals showing. Original tire pump. Battery pack for lights and well as a rear hub generator. Again, I have the headlight off the bike. Brooks seat, new tires, cable brakes. Both have had the bottom brackets, wheel bearings and head tube bearings repacked, and hubs oiled.
They will provide a great way to exercise this spring, and a stylish way to get to the pub! Can talk delivery in a 100 mile radius from Pittsfield. Sold as a package, $650 for both. The models with enclosed chain guards are not common in the States."

Much appreciated! I actually just sent 'em a message to see if it's still available, and if they'd consider selling without the wheels.
