It's an ad for a Schwinn but there's an unmentioned Serotta Club Special carcass in the weeds behind the Schwinn that might be worth investigating.

Seller with that Schwinn is named Bubba🙄. Really, per his post he's Bubba 😧. Leave a note saying where you are going and maybe if he says "you've got a pretty mouth" forget the bike and run,😱

How does that happen? How does a Serotta just end up in a pile behind a garage (or whatever) somewhere??

A legendary frame for sale and its from Richard Sachs, Richard Sachs Road Frameset - 57cm, 56cm top tube new Joe Bell paint . Another one legendary frame for sale but a japanese one is from Cherubim with its Kaisei tubing CHERUBIM R-2 CUSTOM STEEL ROAD BIKE FRAME SET / HAND MADE JAPAN / ULTEGRA .Here are the seller's notes regarding Cherubim:
"One-of-a kind steel lugged frame handmade in the Cherubim studio in Tokyo, size 57. The frame is built with custom Kasei tubes, a Japanese-made steel tubing which offers a higher strength-to-weight ratio than the equivalent tubing from Columbus. The Tokyo-based company got its start in 1965 with Hitoshi Konno at the torch. Three years later, Cherubim would be the official frame supplier for the Japanese national team at the 1968 Mexico City Olympic Games. The company quickly became a family business, run by three brothers, and today, it’s Hitoshi’s son, Shin-ichi Konno, at the helm." And a rarity , Raleigh 753 Time Trial frame raleigh SBDU lo pro frameset frame 700 / 24” reynolds 753 tt time Low Pro

As horrifying as this may sound, to some people a bicycle is well just a bicycle. Everyone's heard of Schwinn but perhaps these folks don't know how nice a Serotta is so to them it was nothing special. Until I started hanging out here I didn't know how to really tell a vaunted PX10 (aside from the Campi derailleurs) from a Royce Union.

And for all we know it could have been dented or broken, since this particular pic is a blowup of an add for a different bike

Actually....... a vaunted PX-10, unless modified, would've had Simplex derailleurs! But point taken- we can't expect everyone to treat bicycles with the reverence and respect most of us here do!

For me a Serotta is an exclusive high end steel or titanium frape with the serotta colorado concept tubing. The frames made after the 1990s weren't handbrazed but were mostly tig welded. Serotta seems to be oriented only with titanium now. When you see the price of a Serotta frame just alone, it is just a reminder that it is something very special regarding craftsmanship and much higher in terms of quality than a Schwinn.

That's a darn good price on a Sachs frameset. JB respray was likely over a grand, and if I understand the text correctly, RS replaced some frame tubing in the repair.
Like new, classic colors, Sachs quality workmanship, best paint in the business. Half of what a new one costs (said the guy who just received his new Sachs and paid the bill).

Indeed, Richard Sachs's workmanship is legendary and the price reasonable when compared to what a new one costs

At least whoever did the single-speed conversion didn't Drew it, other than perhaps the shifter bosses (can't really tell in the photo if they're still intact or not)..

I guess people just run into the time/space/continuum, sometimes it just feels like time advances at warp speed, before you know it things just get out of hand, here is just that. A Serotta left outside under a pine tree. This bike is the only bike I've ever bought that had standing water in the bb.

All the other bearings were clear of water.
