Needs work but for $25
Posted 4hrs ago

​​​​​​https://sandiego.craigslist.org/nsd/...594047713.html

1977 Schwinn Superior - $25 (San Marcos)

$25 or best offer

This a classic old school Schwinn chrome moly frame, fork handlebar and stem that can do everything! Here is what the Schwinn catalog says:

“Superior proves that hi-performance is not limited to lugged frames alone. Schwinn's own unique hand-brazed internally lugged frame fabricating process makes the Superior a one-of-a-kind bicycle.

Joints brazed by hand at points of greatest stress make the frame exceptionally strong, and yet Super-Light in weight. “

Top-tube 25” center to center
Seat-tube 25” center to center

Originally the Mercier 300 ^ would not have a claw mount derailleur. Likely to have received the hacksawed hanger treatment.

This one is mine. More than happy to talk a BikeForums friendly price for anyone interested. I'm hoping not to part it out.

Came across this earlier, an online storage unit auction with mostly vintage bikes and parts in Dallas, TX. A little over a day left, site says shipping is available as well for those not local.
Since I cannot post links as I am too new yet, just Google "dallas online auction block hibid" (without quotes)

Unfortunately (or fortunately!) it doesn't fit (I ride 62/63cm frames). I posted it as it looks amazing. Now that it traces back to you someone else here should grab it. It's always good to remove guesswork from a large dollar purchase and someone buying can be confident it's a safe buy.

Austro-Daimler UltimaSL, smoked chrome with 58cm frame

$370$600
Listed a week ago in Castle Rock,CO
Details
  • Condition
    Used – good
Austro-Daimler UltimaSL in smoked chrome Reynolds 531 tubing with Shimano Dura-Ace components. Added oversized tires and a Brooks saddle for cruising. Cool history, these frames were made in the Austro-Daimler/Puch plant in Austria, where MB G-Wagons were made at the time. The smoked chrome finish is an industrial coating process used for hydraulic components so its very durable and heavy duty, looks really cool as well. This finish was also used on some earlier A-D Vent Noir versions as well, they look very similar. Scammers: Local pickup only, don't waste your time trying phone verification, wire transfers, etc.. Frame measures 58cm center-top seat tube, 57cm center-center top tube. The UltimaSL in smoked chrome was only offered by Austro-Daimler as a frameset in 1982. This bike was built with the exclusive Reynolds 531 Professional tube set. This was their top 531 tube set with only 753 above it. For 1982 the factory offerings included the ULTIMA and the ULTIMA SL models made with Reynolds 531SL their special lightweight (hence SL) tube set and forks. The Reynolds 531SL (explained above in this article) is a lighter weight set owing to the choice of alloy, though the tube wall of the SL can be as thick or thicker than those of the standard 531 alloy frames. An additional detail on the ULTIMA and ULTIMA SL was the stamping of the fork crown top at either side with “PUCH”. The ULTIMA SL became available with the greenish-gold chromed finish made popular by the Vent Noir II, so at first glance these might be confused for one another. The top of the line Austro-Daimler bicycle was marketed as the Ultima series. These are built upon a TI Reynolds 531 (pronounced “five three one”) alloy lugged frame. Later in the production history the “ULTIMA super leicht” were introduced.
