1977 Raleigh Professional, Clean! - $875 (Pasadena)
https://losangeles.craigslist.org/sgv...401460714.html

1977 Raleigh Professional Mk. V, ser # WA8005222, produced at Raleigh's Worksop bicycle factory.

Wonderfully clean and near original example of the iconic British lightweight from the 70's. 31 1/2" standover (80cm), downtube measures 21 1/2" CT (55cm), toptube 21 1/2" CTC (55cm). Reynolds 531 double-butted tubing, all Campagnolo Nuovo Record gruppo, GB "map of England" engraved handlebars, TTT Record stem, Regina 6-speed freewheel. New Brooks B-17 saddle expertly "swallow-ized", non-original clincher rims on original Campy low flange hubs. Online information on the Raleigh Professionals at https://www.sheldonbrown.com/retroral...fessional.html

Purchased a few years ago from the original owner. As with my other vintage bikes, this one was completely disassembled, meticulously cleaned, and reassembled. Bottom bracket, hubs, and headset regreased, new cables and housing, new chain. Paint and decals are 8 1/2 or 9 out of 10. A very few minor paint chips on the frame, but absolutely no dents, scrapes, or rust. Classic Raleigh Pro "mink" blue and silver paint scheme with handpainted gold accents on lugwork. Decals are intact with the exception of the Reynolds sticker on the seat tube; also the original owner informed me that he tried removing the "Raleigh" decal from the left chainstay (?), so there's a minor scuff mark on that side. Otherwise, this is an extremely clean, ready-to-ride example of one of the hard-to-find Raleigh Pro sizes. For more info call 626-791-4995

I googled the name and it is possible that these were built by Colnago for this specific shop. No idea if that is true or not, but if nothing else it has a panto'd chainring. Classy.

Marcel Calborn Cello Road Bike - See Pics - $300 (Newport Beach)

https://orangecounty.craigslist.org/bik/1400907823.html

I'm selling this bike on behalf of my dad and sharing in the proceeds. He has outgrown this bike and is moving on to beach cruiser status. I don't know a lot about road bikes, but this bike is light and sleek. The bike is in good condition and the sale includes shimano shoes.

This is good example of why you need to be very, very savy when buying a vintage road bike. While $300 may be worth it to the end user there is almost ZERO flip potential with it.

It has a $10 Campy Nuovo Record FD and that may be it as far as Campy parts.

1. Modolo brakes....didnt work when dry which means they're not going to work wet.
2. Shimano STX rear derailleur. A mtn. bike derailleur on a road bike?
3. Shift levers....appear to be some type of STI. the model and condition could make it or break it for the bike.
4. Seat height. Whenever I see a seatpost inserted that far it leads me to question the owners bike-ness. A bike aficionado would never have a seat that low.

It has alot going on that isnt quite right.

This is an early 80's Race inc with a frame serial number. This frame/forks/bark have been professional powered coated with signal blue color. There are no cracks or re-welds in frame, forks, or bars, and the dropouts are in good condition. The price in $1200 and the price is firm. Please don't offer less because I really don't want to sell it, and most like is just going to stay in my collection. The only flaws in the bike are the crank arms don't match (one is a maxy the other is a super maxy), the brake bridge hole is a bit ovaled but still holds a brake caliper tight.

Are these forks bent or is this normal?
https://portland.craigslist.org/clk/bik/1401747946.html

It's an older road bike that's ride-able now but needs some work. Tires are pumped up and holding and the bike shifts and brakes. Could definitely use a full lube job and some bar tape. The price is right for a fixer upper. $55

I see a Reynolds decal on the fork, so it's likely full 531 DB. Probably 82/83. Just across the river from the island.

Yep, looks super squeaky clean. I could be wrong, but the components look like basic Suntour/Dia-Compe/SR stuff. So nothing too special there, but decent.

The Trek is way underpriced. And close to me. But I have too many bikes. I just bought four bikes today. I have to stop.

I think I can make out Dura Ace on the crank. First generation - nice, but not worth a whole lot. No clue on the frame, but it looks like a rattlecan job. Maybe something Japanese, late 70s to early 80s.

Yeah, but I'm running out of money. Really. Not sure how I'll pay my mortgage next month. I gotta spend more energy selling, not buying.

I just got off the phone with this guy. He's a real nice fella and the bike sounds really cherry. It's just a hair small for me and I really prefer the long wheelbase Treks or I'd have jumped on it. Even thought about sticking it in the basement till spring and flipping it but I've got a basement full.

Buy it for $150, turn around and sell it for $250 as is. Maybe...

Bianchi Brava Bicycle in blue. I don't recall the cm. measure, but I used to ride a 23" bike when they were in inches, and I'm 6'1". Great condition. Comes with cleat pedals, a cat-eye computer and water bottle cage.

I use the Miamijim rule: Bikes have to pay for bikes. So I make sure the bike kitty is in surplus, or I don't buy either.


That Trek is a deal IMHO.
