Beautiful, but that repair needed might hurt the amount it brings in (assuming the buyer reads the ad and looks at the pictures).

Vintage Motobecane Le Champion 58 cm Reynolds 531 Bike - $300 (Hartford)

Date: 2011-10-18, 11:29PM CDT
Reply to: sale-94n4t-2657322270@craigslist.org [Errors when replying to ads?]

This Motobecane Le Champion 12 speed has a 58 cm (23") frame, measured from the center of the crank axle to the top of the top tube with a 33" stand over height. The Reynolds 531 light weight frame has double butted main tubes. It has a Campagnolo headset, bottom bracket and frame dropouts. It is also equipped with Shimano indexed derailleurs matched with a Sugino VP 52/42 crank. Dia-compe QS 500N side pull brakes. It comes mounted with a pair of 700c Araya alloy rims and SR hubs with a Shimano freewheel. It is a 1974 bike in near MINT condition.

Light Champagne color frame with Gold accents around the lugs.

Buy a vintage bike and save a lot of money!!!!! This bike is cleaned,oiled,tested,adjusted, tightened and ready to ride. Just hop on and it's ready to go.
Save money on gas,and exercise all at the same time.

It would fit someone approximately 5'-8" to 6'-1" tall.

Cash & carry only.

We're located in Hartford, which is about 25-30 miles northwest of Milwaukee/Menomonee Falls.

Mondia Special 61 cm - $375 (East Madison)

Reply to: sale-cz5nd-2657207773@craigslist.org [Errors when replying to ads?]

Very classic yellow and green Super Mondia Special with Campy headset and components.
Lots of distinctive details make this Swiss-made bike stand out. Reynolds 531 tubing and chrome stays.
Extremely good condition considering age (70-80's?)-she's a beaut! Just needs a seat of your choosing.
Was going to be a SS project but lack the time. Similar bikes have gone for twice the price. Yours to enjoy today!
$375 obo

No patina, I guess, but this 80 year old frame looks pretty sweet to me. Not mine, too small for me, but someone else might like it. About $500 American including shipping.

Looks like a Serrotta-built Huffy. Posted on Portland CL, but looks like the guy is in Birmingham? Weird. Also that rear mech doesn't look right.

55 cm1983 Trek 500/520 Tourer/Rando/Commuter - $260 (North Side)

Date: 2011-10-23, 6:46PM CDT
Reply to: sale-hxac3-2665247532@craigslist.org [Errors when replying to ads?]

For sale is a fully rebuilt 1983 Trek 500 that is 100% ready to be your next commuter, randonneur, or light tourer. It sports a Reynolds 501 frameset and a nice laid back geometry that makes for comfy rider and has plenty of clearance for wide tires and fenders. The frame is labeled 500 but it features a triple crankset, which was the only difference between the 500 and 520 in 1983. So, it's basically a 520 but with a 500 decal. Check the specs here:

https://vintage-trek.com/TrekBrochure1983Part1.htm

The seat tube measures approx. 56 cm (center to center) and the top tube measures approximately 55 cm (center to center). So, depending on body dimensions, this should fit folk between about 5'7" to about 5'11". The only way to really tell is to take her for a test spin.

I've completely rebuilt her (greased and adjusted hubs and bottom bracket, new brake and derailleur cables, trued the wheels) and replaced the brake lever hoods. The Cinelli bar tape and Contintal Ultra Sport tires (27 x 1 1/4") are nearly new and make for a plush ride. She's all ready to roll.

If you'd like to ride her with fenders, I have a brand new set of SKS fenders (still in the box) that I'll happily install for an extra $25.

If you'd like a rear rack, I have a vintage Blackburn rack that I'll happily install for an extra $15.

Feel free to ask questions. Thanks for looking!
I'm the seller on this. Identify yourself as a forum member if you're interested and I'll work with you as much as I can (though I've priced her to sell already). Also, FYI, I mistakenly listed 531 tubing (instead of 501) when I first posted it. I changed it within minutes, but ChicAgosteel was fast in posting it!

Where did you get the picture with the chrome fork? The 4 pics in the CL ad all show a black (possibly bent?) fork.

It was for comparison and now that you mention it the CL pic looks sketchy, particularly how the downtube and the wheel look too close together. This plus the weird location and the vaguely creepy "is this yours zippy?" nature might suggest this more a "wacky CL" find than anything.

I am selling a vintage Bianchi road bike. It is too small for me and I think it is about time I get a bike that fits The bike is in excellent condition and was one of the top bikes of its time. I purchased it a year and a half ago and before I owned it, it had been sitting safe in a garage in the cape. The bike is 56 cm and has all Shimano 600 parts, the equivalent of Shimano Ultegra now. The bike has original parts except for the back wheel, which was replaced last year due to age. It weights around 28-30 pounds and was made in Italy. It is the smoothest ride ever and I am honestly sad to sell it, but I am a student and can't afford to keep it for its looks. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
