Yeah. That's me. Appreciate the PM.

57 cm is a bit tall for me, and it seems to be a local-pickup-only type of deal, (plus it's a bit on the expensive side, I think.), but I will still keep an eye on it just in case.

I do have someone here on BikeForums who may be selling me his at just the right size. Waiting til I get the final word from him.

I'm still shopping around, so keep em coming!

Thanks for the link!

I'm not the expert on this, but I would imagine the the Campy 8speed ergo stuff is worth quite a bit.

Reply to: see below



Velosolex 12 Speed Bicycle with Reynolds 531 Frame 62 cm (33 3/4" standover hight). This bike would be good for someone 6' 1" or taller . The frame is in good condition , but paint has some scratches. I installed brand new 27"X 1 3/8" knobby tires, and new cork handlebar tape. The bike would be great on the towpaths or for commuting.... I am asking $ 175.00 for this bike but I am willing to sell the frame , fork , headset and cranks if you would like to build your own bike.............I can deliver this bike within the Princton area if you do not have a car... (732)718-7181......Thanks for looking

whoops. Kind of scanned over the ad and missed the campy parts. That makes a bit more sense. Still on the big side for me, but will keep an eye on it.

yeah I just sort of scanned the ad quickly and when I saw it was big for me, sort of didn't pay close attention to the rest. That was my bad.

Well, I'm kind of hung up on the size thing, really. And apparently he won't ship. I'll continue to keep an eye out for something closer / ebay and hopefully one in my size will pop up.

Thank you, friends.

Figure $300-$400 depending on level. Not that you'll be able to tell easily.

Never heard of this vintage Raliegh, nor has anyone else, as far as I can tell. 1947 Raleigh Centaur Ladies' bike. Looks like a Sports, but it's not, apparently.

Trimble 'Aero' composite monocoque frameset and parts.

The Trimbles built some of the earliest successful composite bicycle frames. Their work included E-stay and 'beam' style mountain frames, aerodynamic road/TT frames, and a number of highly original fittings and accessories for race use. They were, by anyone's account, a significant influence on the development of composite bicycle frames.

The aero road frames were better-known than the mountain frames at the time, probably because they were more visible in the racing world. At the time, the Trimble aero frames were possibly the most aerodynamic frames in existence. The only other nominee was the reknowned Hooker Elite. For Time-trial, Tri, or an ultramarathon event like the RAAM, a Trimble or a Hooker was a major advantage over a more conventional frame.

This one is frame #39(see pic), built 3/9/89 in Massachusetts. It's probably (almost certainly) been raced. It is in decent cosmetic shape, and excellent structural shape, without a crack or separation that I can find. The rear triangle is spaced 124mm, appropriate for 5s, or Ultra-6. You will not be able to spread the rear triangle for a modern 130mm wheel and I would recomment you not try. It's an old-school warhorse. The little compartment was for food, or a bottle, or what-have-you.
It's wearing an appropriate Kinesis aluminum fork, a Stronglight Delta headset, Dura-Ace 7400 bottom bracket, and an appropriate DA seatpost (shortened, but not by me). There is a forgettable Profile steel stem, a single Simplex friction shifter (RH), and wheels.

The wheels are a very nice, very light set of racing tubulars from the 80's. They're American Classic hubs, laced into Sun Mistral Aero tubular rims. They're built 2x, 24h, Wheelsmith 14g front and rear, with alloy nips. The rims have absolutely no brake pad wear on them. I've no idea if they were used on the track, or for raging the coffee shop, but the anodizing is perfect on both rims. The tires, alas, are a write-off due to age. The hubs have the proper American Classic skewers, also in excellent shape.
The wheels were not built for this frame, and the rear hub will need to be slightly respaced in order for the spokes to clear the left side of the frame. The hub needs to be shifted a few mm to the drive side. Not at all difficult, but requires an axle cap that American Classic still sells. Last I looked, it retailed for ~15$. A decent wheelbuilder can do this in less than half an hour. If you would like, I can contact AC and get the part number that you will need.

Overall, you could either restore this as a classic TT/Tri/Ultra frame from the 80's or build it into a very unusual vintage road bike. Velocals (https://www.velocals.com/servlet/StoreFront), or Victory Circle (https://www.vcgraphix.com) can make decals for you if you want to refinish the frame. If you want more information about the frame and its history, all I can do is send you to the Trimbles https://www.trimblemtb.com/Main.html , and I hope you get more response than I did. There was a TrimbleRacing.com site, but it seems to be gone again.

anyone looking for a $1800 Huffy? https://newyork.craigslist.org/brk/bik/2171197398.html



Selling this near-mint 1988 7-Eleven Team Huffy Serotta, measuring 54.25cm ST, 55cm TT. It's in nearly spotless condition, with number hanger and all team stickers. I haven't been able to verify whether it's Columbus or True Temper tubing, although Serotta reported that teething issues with the True Temper tubing breakage had been sorted out by that time in the relationship regardless. Based on weight, ride characteristics, and vintage, it seems likely it could be Columbus SLX. I will verify before test ride/sale.

I believe it was a spare or a training bike, as it shows virtually no wear, **this is my favorite part, wouldn't a training bike be beat to peices?*

Wow, that's actually a pretty darn nice bike. I wonder who built that bike for Huffy?

It's a really nice bike that would be semi-immune to theft just because of that name on the frame. Your average thief would pass it right up

Then you'd better find some way to hide the Dura-Ace and Campy names on the parts and dropouts too

I am sure the average bike theif can tel the difference between this and a real huffy from a mile away.

A little duct tape here and there maybe? I'm sure this bike could be easily uglied-up. But by this same token you could get a Huffy sticker for your (name your nice bike) as part of any uglification project.
