Raleigh International, 20.5" frame. One owner. Purchased in 1976. Very well cared for, but has not been ridden in a long time, so needs a tune-up. Originally International Silver, but repainted to blue and magenta. All original Campi Nuovo Record except for Suntour shifters. Cinelli bars and stem. Original Brooks saddle. Beautiful lugwork. This is a great long distance and touring bike.

[h=2]1989 Moot's Touring Tandem [High-Res Photos in Post] - $1300 (Easton, MA)[/h] [HR][/HR] Date: 2012-07-30, 4:46PM EDT
Reply to: sdb9x-3173142028@sale.craigslist.org [SUP][Errors when replying to ads?][/SUP] [HR][/HR]
This is a 1989 Moot's Custom Touring Tandem.

The specifics: the frame is a custom cro-moly steel frame built up by the guys at Moots with elliptical tubing. It's also rigged for touring with double eyelets for both fenders and panniers, as well as overbuilt, double-spoke wheels. Best of all - the entire bike is covered with Dinosaurs. The drivetrain configuration is built for a stronger rider on the front, and a weaker rider on the back. It was originally configured for husband/wife. Additionally, the design of the frame maximizes the stiffness of the drivetrain without sacrificing ride comfort. The bike has been stored indoors ever since it was purchased, and has recently undergone a major tune-up. We've also replaced the front and rear tires with high-strength Specialized Armadillo Touring tires.

Attached are some fairly recent photos of the bike, highlighting design features and condition: https://imgur.com/a/JPqgD#0

The bike was purchased for about $3000 in 1989, and we're asking $1300 now. We are open to other offers, however this is a one of a kind bicycle and the price reflects that.

Feel free to email with any questions, or to set up a time to see the bicycle.


Cheers!

[h=2]Beautiful Tall Steel Centurion Bicycle - $300 (Framingham)[/h] [HR][/HR] Date: 2012-07-30, 9:59AM EDT

Here's a really gorgeous bike! A mid 1980s lugged and double-butted steel framed Centurion "Elite RS" 12 speed in immaculate condition. It has a seat tube that measures 25" from the crank axis to the top. The standover height is 34 1/2". This is a great bike for a tall person. This was designed to be a triathlon and sport style bike. It has new "kool stop" brake pads, new chain, new bar-end "silver shifters", new Panaracer "Pacela" with Tourguard tires, new bar tape, and a Sigma bicycle computer. It is in perfect riding condition, and a more beautiful bike is not often seen. Charcoal gray with a silver contrasting head tube. Light, nimble, and fun. I recently tuned the whole bike, including repacking both sets of wheel bearings, the bottom bracket bearings, and the headset bearings. The saddle is the original saddle, but without any apparent wear on it. Shimano derailleurs, also recently serviced. Shimano pedals with toe straps. It even comes with the original "Centurion" water bottle and owners' manual. The bike has hardly been ridden. Bigger pictures can be seen by following this link:

Man, someone should jump on this one in a HURRY! Cro-Mo Moots frames were pretty rare back in the day, but Kent's tandems were even rarer!
I wouldn't be surprised if this one has the 'trunk' in the Top Tube just behind the Stoker's seat tube; the TT is oval, and they used to build a
compartment back there with a slide out box, covered with a brass spring loaded 'door' emblazoned with the Moots logo.

Hi, new here and looking for my first bike. Looking for something cheap and this fits right into my budget. Is there a reason why this would be a better buy over something like a Schwinn Varsity in the same price range?

I'm 59 years old, I remember the Varsity's, the Collegiate's, the Continental's, the Suburban's and the Le Tour's...they were ALL junk and they were ALL heavy as tanks, exceeding 45 pounds! There were a year or two of the Le Tour that Schwinn actually tried to make it a better bike.

In summary, don't buy Varsity, the Raleigh International would be a far better choice; so if your deciding between those two, well you know what I think.

Thank you for the response. I'll avoid the Schwinns and continue looking for decent alternatives. This bike is located over 30 miles away so hopefully I can find one a bit closer to home. Are Sekai's worth looking into? I've located a 1980 Sekai 2000 in pretty good shape for $150.

Another no I'm afraid, some of the Sekai's were just slightly better then the mentioned Schwinn's but not as good as the Raleigh; and Sekai did some weird crap too like some bikes had no braze on's for water bottle cages, and the whole bike probably weighed about 38 pounds, I consider anything over 27 pounds to be a tank. But Sakai did make one rather decent bike called the Criterium 4000 that some came with Dura Ace and others Suntour Cyclone components, both of which were good components especially the Cyclone. If it's that bike then get it over the International.

Thanks again, rekmeyata. Do you have any recommendations for cheap vintage bikes? I've been frantically researching a lot these past few days but there are so many different models out there it's hard to get a grasp. I've seen a few Centurions pop up, eyeing a "Super 15" in particular. Looks like it's closely related to the Pro Tour. If the Raleigh is as good as it gets sub $250, I'll make the 60 mile round trip drive to go get it.

I apologize if I am asking in the wrong thread.

If the Raleigh International is still available, get it. It's a fantastic deal on a true classic.

Call the Raleigh owner now and tell him you are on your way. For an hour of your time you will be getting a bike worth a lot more than $150 and do not even attempt to haggle. If you plan to have it for a long time an hour is nothing if you want a true classic.

The International probably doesn't have water bottle braze-ons either. Not a big deal.

I'm looking to fund some screenprinting supplies so instead of holding onto this until I can afford a proper group I'd like to sell it.

Basso Ascot sz 55 , columbus ms/slx, frame and fork , campy seatpost / bb / headset also have some random parts I can throw in if you need them (stems/bars/levers/ some beater derailleurs etc.) as well as a minty fizik arione. Looking for $350 obo

Reply to: gw2x8-3173611708@sale.craigslist.org [Errors when replying to ads?]
a rare SPECTRUM titanium bike by the master himself. 56cm (c-t) 54 cm top tube (c-c)
frame designed by him and made to his specs by Merlin, then finished and painted by Kellogg himself.
any one looking at this is already aware of Kelloggs design and paintwork... his attention to detail.
this frame alone was 3 grand when new.

has been updated to a Suntour pro compact crank and a modern Prolife adjustable stem/quill retrofit, so its easy to change out and raise up or down to suit your needs.
Almost complete 8 speed durace everywhere else. bike in excellent shape. Was well cared for and kept in the house.
has a few chips and nicks that will be hard to photo. all are minimal. bike was built in 1993ish. was equipped in 1994.
Classic aluminum paint matching fork. carbon fiber seatpost.
new hutchensen tires
ride this beauty.. or just hang it on your wall as a work of art.
ok.. since this is an unusual item. ... not your father Trek or whatever .. my cell phone number for conversation or texting is 1-201-207-8326
i will not answer emails without a phone number to call you

I for a sale a vintage Dawes frameset 58cm Reynolds 531 tubing, chrome fork with Campagnolo drops, Dawes rear drops, Zeus headset and bottom bracket. The frame is overall in good condition the top tube has a minor dent nothing super but its worth a mention and does affect the frame in anyway. I was personally gonna build it up but just don't have the time. Please no low ballers the Zeus components alone are almost worth my asking price. Sold as is for cash and pick up only. Please mention name,item,location and a phone number for a response all other emails will be considered spam. Thanks

I had a Basso Ascot back in the day. Superb bike. That one looks a little odd or different. I remember the teal/orange (like mine) and the purple/yellow bikes. I also remember the blue ones with chrome head lugs. Looks like a replacement fork too (that one looks aluminum).

I'm looking to fund some screenprinting supplies so instead of holding onto this until I can afford a proper group I'd like to sell it.

Basso Ascot sz 55 , columbus ms/slx, frame and fork , campy seatpost / bb / headset also have some random parts I can throw in if you need them (stems/bars/levers/ some beater derailleurs etc.) as well as a minty fizik arione. Looking for $350 obo

I usually don't post ebay ads, but this is just cool:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Bianchi-Pari...item3f1a745ac3



Up for sale is a rare 1996 Bianchi team bike built for the Paris Roubaix. I am not claiming that this bike was ridden by Zanini in the 1996 Paris Roubaix in fact I know he did not. I purchased this bike from an Italian cyclist several years ago planning on rebuilding the shocks and fitting it with the proper running gear but never got around to it. That seller told me that the bike was purchased from the Bianchi racing team but I took his word with a grain of salt, maybe, maybe not. Again, the only thing I really believe in is that this is a team issue bike, it is very special, pretty rare.


Here are the other details:


Top tube: 56cm ctc
Seat tube: 55cm ctc, 59cm ctt
Standover: 32.5in
Campagnolo Mirage front/rear derailleur 7speed, hubs
Campagnolo Record shifters/levers
Tracer crank 52/42
Ambrosio bar 41cm ctc
No name stem 100mm
Tiefee Italia saddle
No name seatpost
Exus pedals/Look compatible
Tires: Rolly Polly, new
Wheels: FIR


If you have questions, ask, if you want more photos, happy to supply.


Thanks for looking.

Pretty sweet 1986 Peloton for $300. If the Peloton was my size, I would be seeking a facilitator right now! Even has original owners manual. Looks near NOS.

https://omaha.craigslist.org/bik/3135968200.html

Excellent condition survivor. 24" frame, 33" standover.

Top showroom racing model offered by Schwinn in '86. All original components except pedals, tubular tires, grip tape and Schwinn brake cables.

You won't find another in this shape.

Owners manual and catalog included.


Or how about a small 48cm Circuit, full Sante, $350?

https://dallas.craigslist.org/ftw/bik/3167441664.html

88 SCHWINN with full sante group, cinelli stem, handlebar , new tires and tubes,14speed, the frame size is 48cm, $350 OBO. text at 817-877-7684

Please don't confuse ebay "asking" prices with "selling" prices. Many sellers never get their ask price. some are far from it. Value is determined once an item actually SELLS. Its easy enough to check SOLD prices.

I've seen a few Centurions pop up, eyeing a "Super 15" in particular. Looks like it's closely related to the Pro Tour. If the Raleigh is as good as it gets sub $250, I'll make the 60 mile round trip drive to go get it.

I apologize if I am asking in the wrong thread.
The Super Tour 15 was a mid level bike, not a bad bike, it had Suntour VX or VxGt I can't remember now but it was a very reliable and quick shifting derailleur system that Consumer Reports rated as the best derailleur for the money back then (assuming of course it still has the original components).

It's been a long time since I've seen these bikes, and for me to remember how the Raleigh compares with the Centurion is reaching back into forgotten passages of my one brain cell. I can't recall the Super Tour model at all, so I don't know if it's related to the Super Lemans, which I think it's the touring version of the Lemans, if that's true then it puts the Super Tour about mid to maybe upper mid level, and if that's true it would be a better bike then the International. If by chance you have the words Super and Pro mixed up here and it's actually a Pro Tour then I would run to get that bike!!

When I did an internet search for Super tour, very little info popped up which makes me think that the bike may have been originally intended to be sold in another country and not the USA?

If you post this information concerning these bikes on the vintage side maybe someone with more info then I have remember better. The only reason I know anything about Centurions at all was because we had a LBS in my town I lived in back then that was a exclusive retailer for them and Nishiki, and I knew people who worked there and I did business there, and knew people who raced on them.

This beautiful Serotta Nova Special X was handcrafted by Ben Serotta for our uncle in 1984. Full Campagnolo group, Columbus SLX lugged steel frame, vintage Ideale saddle from France. Brand new Continental tires and tubes. Always maintained by Richard at Cycle Analyst in Wash Park. Great fit for a rider 5'7 to 6' tall. Incredibly smooth ride quality. The best time for me to show it this week is Fri. Thanks, (303) 241-4964
