Yes you did, and I cringed. I had already planned on meeting the seller to look at it. After a few phone calls back and forth, it turned out he measured it wrong and was too small for me. I think he has revised the ad to the correct size since.

Well, at least we know where it went, huh, Lester?!

I saw that earlier, not an X4 but some fancy European bike maybe a'86ish Mondiale. the seller even admits to using X4 as asearch keyword

"I cannot say with 100% certainty that this is an X4. I have used the title for keyword searching purposes. While there are many elements like the embossed headtube, lugs, SLX tubeset, fork and fork crown that point to an X4, there are clearly things that are not X4, like the seat stay caps, the brake bridge and the lack of internal cable routing." foxcoreysar

I did see a real X4 too but a small one

CTRL + F5

Also, keep us updated if it sells for your asking price.

Seriously, I have an '83 and I'm curious about market value. It appears, however, someone in Chicago thinks it's overpriced garbage - obviously someone without taste or much knowledge.

I tried the link and shows it's been flagged. With CL, flagging is almost irrelevant since the seller can re-post the same ad. I've been flagged and I just re-post as a new post. If not flagged, I leave it up until the required 48 hours for re-posting. I found that people will find your item if they are looking for that particular type road or any-other kind of bike.It's an inconvenience but that's the way CL works. Benefits the over posters with posting their whole inventory to have front page exposure and bushes others to the next page.

Talked to the guy today. It is a 110 but I can not find a 110 in the Miyata Bicycle Catalogs with that color combo.

I think 12 speed would make it a 112 (1987).

most of you locals have probably already seen this. Interesting looking tandem with bad pic for 75 bucks. Could be crap, could be worth one bojillion.

Franche-Comte. Eternal question: is that fork bent?



Vintage Reynolds Frame w/ Campy everything - $150 (san jose downtown)

Date: 2011-03-03, 2:36PM PST
Reply to: https://sfbay.craigslist.org/sby/bik/2245569032.html

62cm (center BB to center top tube) Vintage Jeunet (French) lugged steel frame. Reynolds 531 frame and fork . Campy headset (w/ campy bearings) , Campy bottom bracket w/ Campy bolts and bearings, Campy drop outs front and rear. Rears are horizontal if you plan on running fixed gear. Frame is straight w/ no dings or dents. Original orange paint w/ black lugs.
The paint is OK but does show some wear. I’m guessing the frame was made in France in the mid 1970s, (based on pre-TI takeover of Reynolds) neither the frame decal nor the fork (which came off) has the gold section with the TI corporate information which was added around 1977-78.
I have a lower campy dual cable guide that I can toss in for $10 if you plan on running gears.
Call, Text or Email me at 510 585 6495. – Thanks, Tim
