I quite literally drooled over those when I was a kid and they were new..... Definitely one of those 'nostalgia-grail' bikes, thankfully a little too small and a lot too far away!

You just perfectly described my configuration of my fastest road bike for the past 25+ years. But it's not for sale - not that anyone but me would be interested in it anyway.

I had one on my old PX-10, gotten from a Puch bike or parts blowout back in my shop days. Schwinn used them, too, as on this World Voyageur currently on FB Marketplace.

I just won a bid on some TA cranks. I didn't need them but $34.50 with "buyer premium" - and a cassette and a generic front hub? I was in!!!

I wanted to bid on a few bikes - but I was nervous about shipping. Does anyone how much that hurts? They use something called "Pack Mail". Anyone dealt with them before???

I won an auction last year on a site called Invaluable I think, The logistics were horribly handled and it was clear the Auction was not interested in coordinating any of the shipping details with the shipper. Once I won I was scrambling to get a shipping quote and couldnt get anyone to call me back, Once I did I was quoted the outrageous price of $350 for 1 bike from AZ to CA!!! Normally about $60.00. I only had 3 days to pick up or ship the bike and now 2 days had gone by and they were going to return the bike to stock in 24 hours and of course keep my bike payment. I ended up driving out there around 5 am so I could pick the bike up and drive back home 6.5 hours later. Moral of the story is get in touch with the shipper ASAP and get s shipping quote before you bid because its clear they will more than likely gouge you with unreasonable shipping fees negating the deal of your win.
