70s Benotto Road Bike - 56cm - $400 (berkeley)

Benotto Bike, Italian Made 56cm (22 inch) Classic mid 70's model, frame mounted gear-shift tab,Selle San Marco Concor seat, Zeus group set with Shiman 600 shifters, Original Paris-Roubaix decal, 700c x23 Belgian rims, investment cast lugs and bottom bracket (heart-shaped cutout)
It is a classic Italian masterpiece built from Columbus SL tubing by master craftsmen using investment cast lugs, bottom bracket and fork crown and built with low-temperature silver-bronze solder to maintain frame strength
This is a mid 70's Benotto, hand crafted in Italy. Free of any dents or bends.
This is a 30+ year old bike so there are scratches on the paint in line with what one would find on a bike of this age. But the frame is in perfect condition, never dropped or crashed.
Serious inquiries only please. 400OBO



$400 for a vintage Italian with Columbus SL seems pretty good, especially in the Bay Area, right?


btw, is anyone near Arlington, VA? Looking at a bike there, but a few thousand miles separates us..

Sam Benoto Cazenave bicycle from France - $60 (West Madison, Wi)

Date: 2009-09-25, 11:28AM CDT
Reply to: sale-fffwj-1391889814@craigslist.org [Errors when replying to ads?]

This bike is from France and probably built in the early 70's. Its blue and has a hard leather seat.
It says Sam Benoto Cazenave. The stickers on it have the 5 Olympic rings. So, I am thinking this brand was used by bicyclists who took part in the Olympics.

It has Belleri handle bars.


Rims are 25in diameter.

1977 Schwinn Superior touring bicycle - $500 (Elmwood Park, Il.)

Date: 2009-09-27, 12:32PM CDT
Reply to: sale-7ppku-1394910721@craigslist.org [Errors when replying to ads?]



I am selling my 1977 Schwinn Superior. This bike was fillet-brazed by hand in Chicago. The 23 inch frame is 4130 chromoly and it has forged Huret dropouts. The bike has Weinmann brake levers, Dia Compe / Weinmann center pull brakes, Nervar cranks, Huret shifters, a Suntour Compe-V front derailer, and a Suntour V-GT rear derailer. For more info on fillet-brazed Schwinns, see https://www.sheldonbrown.com/schwinn-braze.html. The bike is all original except for the wheels. The Brooks saddle is not included. I will include the original saddle. Please email me with any questions.

BOUGHT ALOT BIKES FROM GARAGE SALES - $55 (NY AREA)

Date: 2009-09-27, 7:10PM EDT
Reply to: sale-fmqdq-1395395783@craigslist.org [Errors when replying to ads?]

https://newyork.craigslist.org/stn/bik/1395395783.html



I recently went to a town in New Jersy, They were having a block actually the whole town was having a garage sale. I went there with $500 in hand looking for antigues. What I came home with was about 200 bikes!!!! I had to rent a U-HAUL to take them back. I had purchase these bikes from diiferent garage sales that day. The average price I spent was $2.00 per bike, no more than $5.00. All of these bikes seem to be from the 70's and 80's era. I, in the past had notice alot of bikes being sold on Craigslist, so a light bulb went on!!! I HAVE BIKES FOR SALE!!!. Since I did not spend more than $5.00 per bike, I am willing to let each bike go for $55.00. I'll make $50.00 for my time of cleaning them up and adjusting the shifters and brakes, and you get a bike!!! Is that fair? Email me soon!!!. These bikes are all Men and Womens 10 speed cruisers, 10 speed road bikes, 10 speed racers, and 10 speed non-suspension mountain bikes. All bikes are 26-27' wheel base with Horizontal drop outs. I skipped the ones that were not. All these bikes have zero rust or dents. Some scuffs and scratches. All tire are good, do not need to replace. PLEASE PUT "GARAGE SALE BIKES" ON THE "SUBJECT" BOX OR I WILL THINK ITS "SPAM"

Old dura ace group and tubulars means it is probably a pretty nice bike, but I can't tell from the pictures who the frame builder is. Might actually be worth the $300.

That thing is gorgeous. I wonder what it would take to make it work again. And I wonder how safe wooden rims are, especially after all these years.

$60 is insanely low, but there's no way it could be from 1968. Might it be stolen?
