2 new tires installed. Ready to ride. Quick release front wheel. Speed of a road bike with comfort handlebars



Can anyone expedite this bike for me? I'd be happy to pay for your time. Plus it would make for a cool story on the Lotus website.

It's a 1983 Lotus America. It looks all original, 1983 was the only year the upright bars and fenders came as factory equipment on the America. Actually, it's the only Lotus bike ever to come with factory fenders. What I find interesting about Lotus bikes is that even some of the low end models are incredibly rare. This is only the Second 1983 America I have seen all decked out like this one. This was the lowest-end bike still made in Japan by Tsunoda, the other entry level bikes, like the Special and Elite were made in Taiwan.
I ended up buying this bike and I thought you guys might get a kick out of the photo the seller sent to me:



As it turns out the seller was familiar with budget Greyhound shipping and offered to pack it up and ship it for a reasonable price. This bike is really in sad shape and will need a full restoration. At least this gives me a good chance to use my own decals on a restoration project.

I know I've already got more into this bike than it's market value. But as a Lotus enthusiast I appreciate how rare this bike is, even if it's an entry level model. Entry level Lotus bikes just weren't made in the massive quantities of other manufacturers, so they can be difficult to find.

Coming from the automotive field, I have more than a few auto body friends who will paint the bike for me, or at least let me use their spray booth one afternoon. The parts on the bike aren't too expensive either. It should make for a fun project.

I'd like to thank Chris_in_Miami for offering to expedite the bike for me. Considering that we don't even know each other, that was a super-cool thing to do.

I never thought of that. I knew somewhere in the deep recesses of my brain that greyhound did that. I remember my brothers used to ship their seabags that way sometimes the catch a ride home later.

This could be the start of something big for Greyhound.

The seller and I negotiated a package deal. I asked after the negotiation for the price of shipping, if he lets me know I'll post it here. The bike is going from Boca Raton, Florida to Reading, Pennsylvania. The shipping price played an important factor in buying the bike, especially for a bike that isn't very valuable in the first place. I also told the seller he could keep the new tires he just put on the bike to lower the price, I'll install gumwalls.

Since this project started here on BikeForums, is it worthy of starting a new thread to document the progress? I have a background in automotive restoration and have restored a few AACA Grand National Champion cars for customers. I plan on treating the bicycle the same way.

Update:

Package weight was 36.5 lbs, Dimensions are 54" x 30" x 10", price was $63.60

Wow, the Lotus seller got that bike boxed and shipped much quicker than I could have, looking forward to seeing the project as it progresses! FWIW, Amtrak ships bikes for a very reasonable rate also, it's another great shipping option when sender & receiver are near a train depot.

Any guesses as to what shifters/derailleurs are on this Traveler? Kinda looks like Suntour in the one pic, but the catalog specs for some of these 80s Travelers say Shimano. Also, the seller says these are 26" wheels. Does that sound right? If this would be Suntour and 27" wheels, I could see picking this up as a donor. Any thoughts?

Classic Schwinn Traveler 10 speed women's road race bike, circa 1980's (?). This light blue 10 speed with friction shift on the downtube women's bicycle is in great shape. No bends, cracks or dings on the Crome-Molly 4130 frame. The wheels are 26" aluminum that are arrow straight. Two position brake levers for use while riding with hands up on the cross bar or down in the drops. The seat is in good condition with no rips, cracking or tears. The tires are older w/ cracks in the sidewalls but they do hold air and are rideable. I'm not sure what the frame size is, but it seems like a smaller women's frame. It is larger than a child size bike.

Crankset, brake levers, maybe BB, bars, and shifters would be well worth the purchase price on a flipper, IMO. Sell the frame on Ebay, Cr-Mo frames are worth at least $25, right?

I bought this for my husband at auction and spent lots to have it fixed up new, only to find out it was too small for him!!! Now I have to sell it at a loss - so sad. Anyway, I hope you will enjoy this wonderful bike, it rides perfectly, has a Shamano 105 group set. It's 19.5 inches tall from pedal axis to top bar, 21" long from seat to fork along the top bar. The tires are 27". The brand is Shogun Katana and it has a Serfas saddle and toe clips.

Email me if you're interested, and enjoy your summer!

For sale is a nice Trek 1200 road bike. It is a 56cm (22") bike with Shimano RX100 gear. Bontrager seat. Wolber rims.

I live in Plymouth. My son left this bike when he moved south.

It has a few dings and scrapes here and there, but overall in very nice shape. I believe it is a 1987 model.

200 or best offer.

Please call 574 xxx-xxxx -- I might miss an email...

That's right NOS, bike has been in the original box for 30 years! Was taken on a 1 mile shakedown ride after assembly.

This was Bridgestone's top of the line bike, which I believe became the RB-1.
Highlights include:
- "Flamboyant Red & Golden Tan"
- double butted 25" frame
- Suntour Cyclone II derailleurs
- Nitto stem and bars
- Sugino Cranks
- Arraya Red Tubular wheels with original NOS Bridgestone sew-ups! (these are rare and an upgrade over clinchers listed in catalogue)

Detailed specs can be found on original catalogue: https://sheldonbrown.com/bridgestone/...%20catalog.pdf

More pictures can be found here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/mcmarti...7630087221130/

This bike is probably most attractive to collectors, but if you are looking for a brand new, stunningly beautiful, quality machine at great price you should check it out. Shop around for a modern bicycle of this quality and you will easily pay twice as much.

Price is Firm

Heron fully lugged frame/fork/headset. fits 700x38c tires/fenders, 3 bottle mounts. ive toured the C & O Towpath and The Katy Trail, both crushed limestone/dirt, on this frame with great results. made in the USA by Waterford. Original paint was Bailey Falls Blue but foolishly opted for something brighter. definately not professionally resprayed but rather 'quick and dirty'.......but it held up remarkably well. $525 shipped. $475 picked up

This is rare to find on craigslist, a real beauty in the rough:

[h=2]'80s Ciocc with Campagnolo parts - $425 (Moses Lake)[/h] [HR][/HR] Date: 2012-06-09, 10:14AM PDT
Reply to: qtgjh-3067354670@sale.craigslist.org [SUP][Errors when replying to ads?][/SUP] [HR][/HR]
I've had this bike since the mid '80s and some of the components are older than that.

It's a 54cm Ciocc. There's no decal to indicate what kind of tubing it has, but it's a high quality frame with cut-outs in the lugs and Campagnolo dropouts.


Campagnolo parts include hubset (Nuovo Tip high flange) crankset (Record) pedals (Record) and derailleurs (Record).


Brakes are Modolo Pro.


Tires are tubeless on Mavic clincher rims. Wheels have less than 3mm runout and are round. Rear tire has around 6mm runout.


It's been sitting for many years, so I assume the grease in the hubs, BB and headset will need to be replaced due to separation.


The pictures tell the story. It's been ridden a lot and is not in pristine condition, but it's a nice vintage road bike. I also have a set of tubulars on Nuovo Record hubs that I'd include for another $75. For details call or text seven seven one one seven eight five.
