Thanks for the update, and I'd bet that was a pretty good string of emails on this one.

Yeah, I think that's usually frowned upon. You're pretty newbish, so I guess you didn't know.

Now you know. So don't do it again.

You are, however, more than welcome to post in the Marketplace forum as long as you have upgraded membership.

I am interested to see how this does. I have the same saddle in black and much better condition. I bought it for a project 5 years ago that never worked out.

Here's a free Schwinn Letour mixte frame in NJ. It's a little too far from me to facilitate, though.

So what's so non-functional about lighter fork blades, better ride quality and a stronger steerer-blade junction? Them's what you get with a properly-done crowned fork. The only advantage to a unicrown is that it's cheaper to produce.

Tom Ritchey handbuilt roadbike on SF Bay CL. 58cm, says made of Columbus SP...best offer over $500.
A chance to own & ride a classic, I'd be all over it except: no $$$ and it's just a tad too big.

Nah. It's one of those even uglier plastic (crabon fibber) jobs.

Stop arguing over forks, you dodos. The Panasonic forbids any calling of unicrown forks "ugly," and as Official Bicycle of the Gods, it should know:

Now, on to what this thread is actually FOR... this guy posted this on the Seattle CL, so I'm guessing it's everywhere from here to LA, but still...

Vintage Austro Daimler road bike, for $250:

Looks pretty sweet to me.

No, a Ritchey hand-made fork, and it's included according to the seller, just not pictured on the bike.
