Dreaming on price? chrome lugs at each weld????


https://sfbay.craigslist.org/nby/bik/3219248212.html


40TH ANIVERSARY DE ROSA ONLY ONE IN THE WORLD 60 CM - $5800 (petaluma)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


This frame was built in 1994 in celebration of De Rosa's 40th aniversary. This is the only 40th aniversary DeRosa frame ever produced. It is 60 CM. This complete bike features Campagnolo record 8 group set throughout the whole bike including Campagnolo pedels. (the pedals are not shown in the picture.) It has new continental tires and will include the pedals shown in the pictures. The bike itself is custom as it its the only one in the world but also boasts such features as chrome lugs at each weld. Custome paint and decals specifically for the 40th aniversary, that you won't find anywhere else in the world. The frame was completely handmade in Italy and shows the pride and history of De Rosa bicycles. This bike is a dream ride should you want to have the nicest, most unique De Rosa in the world, on the road. It is also a piece of art should you chose to showcase it on the wall. I have enjoyed this bike over the years immensely but believe now someone else should enjoy its beauty the way it was intended. Please only serious inquires only. Please call Jesse at 707-321-5890 should you want to see it. Thanks

Side trip. How long have you had your 57? Reason I asked is because I had a 59 and it was like driving a piece of glass, do you have similar thoughts? I never had any real luck with any older British car, in addition to the 59 I also had a 73 Lotus Europa JPS, and a 74 Triumph TR6. The Lotus was fast and handled better then a Corvette would back then but reliability issues were ugly, though not as bad as the MGA but more expensive to fix; and the TR6, well it was fun, and of the three it had the best reliability but it also had a lot of issues. So I gave up on British cars and got a 85 Alfa Romeo Graduate which I wish I had kept because it wasn't bad at all, so sometime in the near future I'll be looking for another 85 to 89 Alfa Romeo spider probably a Quadrifoglio.

1985 Ron Cooper Racing Bicycles - $6000 (Westlake)
Date: 2012-08-21, 6:48PM CDT

I am offering for sale two hand-made Ron Cooper English bicycles. These lightweight British racing style frames helped define the best in custom race frame design. I had Ron build these two bicycles for my wife and myself back in 1985. My bike is equipped with the Campagnolo 1983 50th Anniversary Gruppo and my wife's has the Record Gruppo components. Both bikes have been in storage for more than 25 years. My bike has less than 300 miles on it and my wife's less than 100 miles.

Ron Cooper Medium (55 cm) Frame $3,500
This Ron Cooper custom bicycle is Cinnamon in color. The frame measures 55cm from the bottom bracket to the top of the seat post. The build-out on the bike was done with the Campagnolo 1983 50th Anniversary Gruppo which was based on the Record and Cobalto lines, the 50th Anniversary gruppo features gold plating and a unique design. This is the same gruppo that was presented by Campagnolo to Pope John Paul II in 1983. The tires are Vitoria CX sewups which are sewn around the tubes and then mounted on the rim. The rims are 700mm Matrix 32deg 3X. Two speed crank and 6 speed cassette for a total of 12 gears. The Anniversary Campagnolo components themselves often sell for between $5,000 and $10,000. Real Gold!

Ron Cooper Mixte Step through 51cm Frame $2,500
This Ron Cooper custom bicycle is of step-through design. The frame measures approximately 51cm and is teal in color. It has an Avocet seat, 700mm rims, 2 speed crank and 6 speed cassette for a total of 12 gears. Clincher tires are mounted on the rims. The gruppo is Campagnolo Record.

A bit about Ron Cooper At 15 yrs old Ron began his frame building career in 1947 at Gillott Cycles in London, and set up his own essentially one-man shop in 1970. He is particularly well known for using careful mitering and freehand brazing instead of jigs. When you personally hand build every frame that has your name on it, you don't produce nearly as many bikes as builders who set up larger production facilities. Ron had nearly 40 years of frame building experience when he built these bikes in 1985.

No paypal, local sale only, bring cash and get a great deal on both his and hers bicycles. If you are reading this ad the bikes are still for sale. I will delete this ad when the bicycles are sold.

Respond to this ad with your name and phone number and I will contact you.

I owned a string of TR 6s and they were fun cars. Absolutely brutal electrical systems and the fuel systems were not worth a nickel.

Updated to Webers, these cars were surprisingly driveable on a regular basis.

https://www.webercarbsdirect.com/

Until the indie rear suspension components gave up the ghost that is.

I also owned a Fiat 850 Spider that was in amazing condition.

Loved that car and it looked much like this one.



I'd sell a bunch of bicycles to pick up another if the right one came along.

Ive had the MGA for several years... Most reliability issues on the older Brit cars comes from damp environments and Lucas electrics. I've gone through and made sure the grounds were solid and wiring good, and have had no problems at all. I also own '68 MGC GT and its been fine as well. Never tried any others, such as Lotus or Triumph, but I think that with a few updates, all of these cars can be made reliable.
Alfas are also cool, so good luck with your search.

Thanks, I have had lots of trouble with the net the last couple weeks. Most things on ebay won't load so I can see them. For someone local with extra wheels it might not be a bad deal.

Up for sale is a vintage 23" Peugeot touring bike, made in France. I purchased this bike recently but never rode it and want it to find a good home because it is so unique. The bike is in great shape -- no frame damage and all gears/chain are also in top condition. It comes with everything you see in the pictures: fenders, running lights (working), rear pannier/package holder and tire pump.

If you are serious about buying email me WITH A CELL PHONE NUMBER. I will call/text you in response, but if you don't leave a phone number I won't respond because there are too many spammers on Craigslist.

Very interesting and well built mid-50s bike from a smaller Torino builder. Want the 50s experience of a Gran Sport and rod shifting up front at 1/5-1/4 the price of a "known" marquee? Then this is for you.

Old bicycle lamp is a Neverout insulated kerosene safety lamp, believed to be from the late 1800's. Patented by Rose Mfg Co of Phila, USA, (printed on top of lid) It has 3 original facet jewels, red, green and red on back. Glass is perfect, has a few dings on the back. Wick is perfect. I believe it was never used, has no carbon buildup. Made out of nickel, needs to be cleaned. Have seen on the internet for higher prices with wear on the bottom. $325 or best offer.

I'm certainly no expert on the antique lamps, gas or carbide, but I do know that you can purchase decent examples for far far less on eBay. Also, for never used, it sure has taken a beating - look at those dents.
For that kind of money it had better be pristine. Lamps are an entire category of collectibles unto themselves, and there are some rare examples that fetch ridiculous money. Some are bare brass, some nickel plated, some are ?? , but if you just want a nice period accessory, you should be able to score a lamp, with all the parts, lenses in good shape, etc. for under $100 over the years I have purchased a few complete lamps with good glass in the $30-40 range.

Just my opinion on it.

I know absolutely NOTHING about them. I do know 99% of ads that say "I've seen it online for more" are absurdly high and sort of suspected this was over priced, but I thought it looked cool enough to post.
