I'm thinking this is not a clean deal. Phone number message does not match name in the ad. But it's fun to think about (not as a fixie)...

Well, it is a Falcon gaspipe frame, plus the top tube looks bent (could just be the photo).

FAGGIN 54cm Hademade Road Bike - $550 (Church Hill)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Date: 2012-04-16, 1:14PM EDT
Reply to:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Built in the Mid-80's by this company---->https://www.fagginbikes.com/index.php...emid=1&lang=en. The photos below (that I shamefully had to take using my computers camera) do not do this bike an ounce of justice. Probably some of the most beautiful lugs I have seen on a bike from this period. Google search some of there frames. It has never been wrecked and built out of really durable Columbus tubing. I primarily used this bike for only long distance rides, I also tried my hardest to keep the original paint and decals looking fresh. There are some really minor nicks in the paint and decals from rocks and such, but nothing that noticeable for a frame o 30+ years... without touching your nose to it. I bought this frame and built it up last summer, since then I have put around 1100mi on it. None of the parts are original but Ill try and break down everything that's on it.
Rear Wheel-Campagnolo record hub laced to a Mavic open 4cd rim
Front Wheel-Shimano RSX hub laced to Mavic MA2 rim
(Both wheel spin smooth and have a set of great condition Michelin Erilium 2 Tires)
Camagnolo Head Set
Nitto Dynamic 11 Racing stem
Cinelli Bars? (not sure about that)
Campagnolo brake levers
The seat post that is in there now is just a generic 26.6, (but I will include a the original Campy one I have. Threads were getting a little week to hold the seat in place).
I will probable be keeping my saddle as well as my pedals.
The Drive Train:
Campagnolo dual ring cranks with (top ring 53, bottom ring 42)
Campagnolo chorus square tapper cartridge bottom bracket
Shimano 600 7-Speed M-Cage Rear Derailleur
Shimano 600 Friction Braze-on shifters
Shimano 7-Speed Cassette
Campagnolo bottom pull Front Derailleur
Sure there is something I'm missing, but all the cables are pretty new and the bike was serviced a little over a week ago. So come by, take a look...you will not regret it.

I will post pictures this weekend of my steal of the year, $350 for a "Mint", and I do mean mint, 1982 Trek 730 completely decked out with Campy Super Record group. I could barely find a scratch let alone a paint chip. Talk about a Time Capsule piece. Not only that but it came with Look carbon clipless pedals and a box of extras, including the original Campy pedals, another set of campy hubs, a few extra tubes and an extra tire. I almost hated to give her just the $350....... almost!

It's the paint scheme. I've seen alot of crazy paint colnagos go for big money. Keep in mind that offers are simply offers and his asking price is simply that...an asking price.

A friend of mine has one, it is a really beautiful frame in person. Probably not worth what this guy in Boulder thinks but one day he might get lucky.

Its ready to ride. it has new black cables, new tires and tubes. it shifts smooth.

and weinman 506 brakes that are the original. Brooks Saddle with no tears or scratches.

This is a complete Vintage bike see pics below. i tried to keep it as original as possible

I am 5'7 and it fits me great. i ride it to work 3 times a week.


It has the typical scratches on the frame to be expected for a vintage bike.

No that doesn't look like a house more like some kind of warehouse that can be sectioned off. Most of the bikes in the front row look like the same model. I think something fishy is going one. maybe their hot maybe somebody holding a liquidation sale on the down low?

Yeah, my guess is a couple of shipping containers "fell off the boat" and now someone's trying to make a quick buck.

IMHO, it reads better if you put "conveniently" in front... as in "conveniently fell off the boat".

Looks more like a Mortuary instead of a house, with all of the separate "viewing rooms"!

Wonder if those folks bought out a couple rental fleets from a resort or something?

A few years ago a local frieght company had almost 100 new bikes in cartons with some recal/payment issue. Long story short, neither party would recieve the bikes so the frieght company had them "in limbo". I was told they were eventually sold as a container of unclaimed frieght.

Very interesting. With that seller and those photos and the bike being that small, this frame could hit 2K
