Assuming you have a spare wheel set ...

Pacific, MO
Since FB still won't work, Enter "Pacific, Missouri" and search for "Univega"
​​​​​​

Univega Gran Turisimo needs back wheel

$50 ∑ In stock
Listed in
Facebook Post

MessageDetails
  • Condition
    Used – good
  • Material
    Aramid fibre
Really neat vintage bike. The back wheel is aluminum and is bent. Wheels are matching AKAI 27 inch Japanese wheels. The bike needs tires and you should go over the bike before using as it is vintage. I measure a 23 inch frame with just over a 32 inch standover heught. Good components that would make a good all purpose bike. Selling AS IS with porch(yard) pick up in Pacific, MO 63069. Cash Only. I will not give out my cell number. IT IS A CHROMOLOY FRAME AND NOT ARAMID FIBER..these ads are tricky sometimes. I was rolling this bike around in the back yard and I think it might need both front and back wheels. So I lowered the price. I think I can come up with a used set if you want to buy some?
Pacific, MO

I'd say Caveat Emptor on this unless you can inspect in person
Plus he's been an eBay member since August 2021 but has a "zero transactions" rating, tread carefully if you pursue either of his dubious 'trauts on the auction block
ebay offers sellers the option to use an ebay-ai generated, very bland description based on what the seller enters as the item title and whichever details the seller decides to enter or not enter into the item specifics. sellers don't have to type any actual description to use it. it's a very annoying trend.

Ran across this auction listing for a NOS pair of 3Rensho pedal straps in red.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/126396007633

Auction closes on Mon at 11:11PM EDT; listing has "Make Offer" enabled. Opening bid is not cheap, but also IMO isn't stupid expensive either. No bids so far.

Vendor also is auctioning a pair of "NIB Vintage Campagnolo Chorus Aero Road Pedals L". Auction closes 11PM EDT on Mon; 2 bids so far.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/126395996141

I don't know the vendor from Adam/Eve, and have no connection to them whatsoever.

VERY short notice, but: you don't see a Ritchey road and CX bike advertised very often! So thanks for the heads-up.
Trying to decide if I need such a side trip today just to see what size and price these are (or were)...


UPDATE: I DID spend my time and went to this sale, it was as-advertised in a "basement" but actualy a street-level dark low "garage" in an old Sausalito house. The seller was a long-time resident of both SF and Marin who's relocating to far-off Carolinas and had 2 Ritcheys in dusty but quite good condition. Both the blue Road Logic and green Swiss Cross were around 55cm, no evident damage on either (flat tires and wear to both saddles), the Blue was Campy-equiped and the Cross was a mix of Ritchey logic, Shimano and assorted JP brands, all good quality.
Got him to throw out an asking price for the Cross and he finally said "$1000"? At which point I figured "too rich for my budget, even if we bargained down a LOT" so begged off and didn't even ask about the Blue, but assumed he's thinking about the same $1K for that as well.
Not that they aren't worrh something like that to a grail-seeker, but not me!

It was a very nice Spring day in South Marin...breezes off the Bay a little chilly but warm in the sun so I didn't suffer.

Original Paint - Dark Blue Size 56cm 10 Speed Campagnolo Nuovo Record

Opening at $200 with a single word title "bicycle" - I'll be curious to see the winning bid... Seller has listed 2 Eisentrauts under "bicycle"
Interesting enough that the link is now gone. Either the seller got a better offer or there was something fishy about the listing..........I would love to know if anyone from the forum was able to snag this beauty?

I know the RX-100 stuff isn't as C7V as Record but, this group looks to be in exceptional shape.
not sure where the seller gets the idea wheels are 26inch. Those are clearly 700c

Not seen often in original finish, shows race wear but interesting offer alternatives. Have to read carefully to tease out what to do.
