Someone needs to buy it just so we can find out for the forum!

Ok Ebay pros, someone explain how this works? New seller, has tons of listings, all with low bids and the disclaimer below. None have a "buy it now" price. I thought asking to communicate outside ebay was frowned upon/not allowed. If you win the "auction" then what? paging @wrk101

47,035 items listed. 18 sold listings, worldwide...... I wonder if enough people bid on those items would Ebay notice a couple million dollars of canceled bids?

Ive seen that guy before but he used to be listed as being in Santa Monica. He is such a moron he doesnt even use "bike" in all of his listing descriptions so its virtually impossible to find all of his listed bikes. I think he is a pawn shop or buys inventory from bike shops going out of business. He has had many bikes I was interested in but the whole thing makes me uncomfortable. When it smells like a fish.........

Craigslist MI Raleigh

F/S 1973 Raleigh competition - $250 (Westland)

I have a nice 1973 Raleigh competition up for grabs. It measures 23in frame. Made in the Carlton factory. It was the 3rd down in line up under the professional and international. The competition still used the reynolds 531 double butted tubes throughout with huret forged dropouts. It also had the cinelli style fork crown with chrome ends. It has alloy cb stem, bars and seatpost with ideal leather seat. It still has the original huret jubilee derailleurs and shifters finished out with the ta specialties crankset. The wheelset is Araya alloy with Normandy competition hubs. The brakeset is weinmann 999 centerpulls with drilled weinmann levers and Carlton hoods. Asking $250

I'm not entirely sure those are J.F. Wilson frames. I think the seller might have misread the graphics.

Harry Havnoonian has a ton of stuff listed, including various framebuilding bits. Retiring, perhaps? Anybody know?

Not fancy but I love these things, and they have the best steel rims in the business. No kidding. These are the ten-speed versions, looks like both for $150 in NY.

Looks like the same model as the one I posted above ('85 - 560 for $120), but cleaner?

If you're willing to take a chance on a bonded frame, that's a lot of light, fast bicycle for the money.

this does not happen in cali. they should just give the bikes away and sell/lease the land. the bike $ would be inconsequential.

Posted this before. Updating with significant price reduction. Someone here should it and I'll buy it from you in a year or so when I'll have more bike room.

Bikelist Cinelli

1972 Cinelli SC from Spence Wolf $1,750.00

1972 Cinelli Special Corsa, with frame built in Milan by Cino Cinelli, dean of Italian frame building (built prior to Columbus acquisition).
Seat tube: 61cm center-center (63cm center-top); top tube: 58cm
This bike was built for Tim Wilson by Spence Wolf, dean of NorCal custom builds. Spence also built the wheels.
All parts are original aside from freewheel and rubber and bar tape.

Frame and fork: Cinelli SC with Columbus cro-moly steel
Headset: Campagnolo Record
Stem: Cinelli 1A, 11cm
Bars: Cinelli Giro d’ Italia
Shifters: Campagnolo Record
Front Der: Campagnolo Record
Rear Der: Campagnolo Nuovo Record, “Patent-72” (1972)
Cranks & Rings: Campagnolo Nuovo Record, 53/42, 175mm
Bottom bracket: Phil Wood
Pedals: Campagnolo Record, Superlegerri (black-anodized aluminum)
Clips and Straps: Christophe Special w/ Camusso straps
Brakes: Campagnolo Record
Hubs: Phil Wood, 36/36 hole, 100/120mm, about first year of production, with chrome-plated barrels
Freewheel: Shimano, 15-26 5-speed
Spokes: Robergel Trois Etiole butted stainless
Rims: Super Champion Record du Monde
Tires: Panaracer 700c tubulars
Seat Post: Campagnolo Record, 26.2mm
Saddle: Cinelli Unicanitor, #4, leather top

Comes with second set of wheels built by Tony Tom of Bicycle Odyssey: vintage 1990s Phil Wood hubs (one-piece aluminum barrels/flanges), Mavic clincher rims, DT butted SS spokes.

Comes with documentation including invoices and build spec from Spence Wolf and Tony Tom.

The frame/forkparts have rusty places. Some parts show excessive wear: saddle-top leather (cracks), left crank (crack). Wheels are relatively true. Bearings seem fine.
