This is the guy I suspect is a scam.

I'm selling a vintage 70s 56cm campagnolo schwinn paramount with campagnolo. It's in good condition, rides strong and has low miles on campagnolo wheels. I'm asking 400 for it. You can come pick it up when I'm home or pay through PayPal and arrange shipping on your end if needed. I had this bicycle for years, it belonged to my father and it was hung in dru sorage in the garage for years . I dont have time to ride or maintain it. So its time to retire it. I work the in logistics industry so I'm away for weeks at a time.

If you've interacted with him yet (I have), you will find it very sketchy. He advertised in Oregon, Arizona and now North Carolina. He claims he's a trucker and brings his bikes with him when doing his routes.. He claims to have three 70s paramounts (57-58cm range) that he's selling for his uncle in the nursing home in Fresno, CA. It all looks very convincing at first, until he tells you he wants a 250 dollar deposit over venmo and not Paypal then the rest in cash when you meet him in person. I realized it was too good to be true and passed on it, after letting him know I wasn't falling for his scam.. if anyone else had similar experiences with this guy, please chime in.

Shogun triple triangle ! - $400 (Roslindale)

Very cool Shogun katana triple triangle frame!
Made from Tange infinity tubing- nice!


58cm ish, Im right around 61 and fit be darn near perfect.

Super fun build with nothing fancy, but good stuff throughout. Decals are rough and plenty of paint chips . No dents or dings!

Mismatched blue wheels, front is a Bontrager race lite and rear is a blue mavic rim on a Shimano hub.

1x7 speed drivetrain with a smooth friction thumb shifter.

Just doesnt get ridden enough, otherwise Id keep it!

The seller obviously likes a little drama. Expressive lighting . . . and look at that head badge! Think Italian opera. If I was in Boston I'd buy that frame.

Thanks for the suggestion curbtender. I would have loved to do that, but when I quote a posting that has an image in it, my post gets rejected because I cannot yet post images (10 posting). So effectively I cannot reply with a quote unless it is a posting like yours, that has no image content.

That is my understanding and what I have seen from experience (and believe me, its not fun when you have composed a long response and then lose it because when your posting is rejected and the "Back" button cannot save you). Please let me know if I am missing something, I would be happy to able to create a reply with images in it.

Thank you.

Unless the image is critical to the reply, you can simply delete it. Even if it is, people will be able to click your and get to the post with the images.
