This isn't really the place for it, but I think it might be a good deal. Seller hasn't provided enough info, but the price for a Reynolds 853 frame alone seems pretty decent:

Masi Reynolds 853 Bike - $375 (Fishtown)

For sale is a Masi Reynolds 853 in good condition. I would rate it a 7.5 or 8 out of ten. The one major flaw is that the handlebars will have to be re-wrapped. Asking 375 or best offer.

Also selling a single speed bike, no name frame, but recently rebuilt it with some nice parts.

that's a pretty looking bike. Odd that they know enough to post the tubing, but don't do the measurements.

Why would a Reynolds 853 bike come with Sora? I don't see an inner paddle.

The tube diameters hint aluminum to me.

I don't know if this belongs here or on the "Wacky World of Craigslist Ads" thread, but this has to be the best CL description, ever.

"This bike is that girl a few grades ahead of you in junior high, the one who wore thrift shop clothes before you could buy them everywhere, who was rumored to be fast and looked good in a fight and maybe just once glanced over at you in homeroom. Only now it's 18-19 years later and she's toned down some, and she's actually some kind of engineer way beyond whatever, and just like you she likes the way Charles Osgood talks and she keeps a copy of Strunk and White, and not only does she remember what 7" vinyl is she still keeps the old ones from Dischord. You want to have coffee? THAT is the chance I'm offering you here with this bike. Not really, but almost as good."

I have to agree...I have a Reynolds 853 Lemond, and the tubes are thinner.

Price is not worth the components. I'm just posting to see if anyone has heard of this brand. Pretty bike.

Italian Steel Touring - Vintage 57cm - $350 (Jackson Ward)

Date: 2010-12-15, 1:08PM EST
Reply to: sale-tbzje-2114354093@craigslist.org [Errors when replying to ads?]

For sale is a vintage (late 60's-early 70's) Italian steel touring bike. The bike measure 57cm C-T with 32" standover. The top tube is 55cm C-C. The is a relaxed geometry for touring and commuting. The decals say "A. Camera." There is little info about this bike, but it was probably manufactured by an Italian frame builder for an individual as a custom bike or a for another business (either a retailer or more likely an importer.) It is a solid steel frame with nice lugwork that was far nicer than what was coming from Japan at the time, although not as nice as some European lugwork. The components are Campagnolo Valentino Extra. The hubs are high flange hubs with 36 spokes and a 4 cross spoke pattern. The wheels are 27". The paint is in great shape with only a few chips, although a little faded in places. There is basically no rust on this bike.

Now about the work that was done to bring this bike back....This bike was stripped to the frame for cleaning and inspection. Every component was disassembled and reassembled (as much as possible.) All the bearings have been replaced, including headset, bottom bracket, and hub bearings. Hubs have new cone nuts. Bike has a new chain and 6 speed freewheel (originally was 5 speed). New cable and bar tape finishes the package. A new seat might be in order, although it is great as it is right now. This is a great bike and rides like it is brand new.....

Antique Bicycle Vintage Rod Drum Brake - $225 (Bellmawr)

Date: 2010-12-15, 4:21PM EST
Reply to: sale-mpdjc-2114752339@craigslist.org [Errors when replying to ads?]



You are looking a a mid 30's tall bicycle. I believe this bicycle to be a Raleigh. This has super rare rod (drum) brakes on both the front and rear wheels. This bicycle needs to be tuned up and is missing one small piece for the front brake. Very cool old bike. E-mail with questions, can take extra pics. $225 obo
Thank you,
Jason

South Bend, Indiana: small frame Lotus Prestige, just $75. Hard to tell details. Seller says wheels are 700c which is a good indicator, but graphics and paint look like an early 90s Lotus project I have, which is a Taiwan-made bike and not up to the quality of Japanese Lotuses (Loti). Still, for $75...

https://southbend.craigslist.org/bik/2109016367.html

This is a blue frame with yellow lettering, the year is 2001. Measures 20 inches from the center of the crank to top of seat post clamps. Tires are 700c. Suntour derailer package with shifters on down tube.
There is no air in tires and it is missing brake pads.

This bike has been listed on my local Craigslist for at least two months, the price has been fixed at $400. Is it worth anything near that? The seller seems to think someone will eventually buy it...

The stem shifters and turkey wing brakes rarely point to a high end bike that would be worthy of that price.
