No decimal point errors here.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Urag...item51a0f7c0a3

But as Shoota says, that $7999 price is probably "absolutely insane".

Nevertheless, $140 vs. $7999 looks very tempting.

it looks like a 92 repainted in OKC Thunder Colors (blue and white) and with 94 decals. Still a fantastic value, but at that price maybe you have to make sure its not a stolen customized bike.

It could also be a scam for phone numbers. The ad looks a little suspicious in my opinion, the picture and bike are too nice for that price.

edit: Although, being from OK, I can definitely say that is Oklahoma landscape. Still though, something seems fishy.

edit2: That picture is taken in the fall. Even more fishy.

They have, I believe, 4 locations on a main drag (Regent St). The main store that carry's new bike gear and accessories is quite nice, well stocked, and priced competitively in the market place. They have very nice sales staff and I have had good experiences with their mechanics.

The used outlet is another story...the bikes are cool to look at, Staff is awesome, but the presentation of the bike (cleanliness not so much) and the pricing can be from bad to unbelievably high. Just go to Ebay and look (search vintage bike and categorize by highest price first and you will see what I mean)

worth visiting if you are ever in Madison.

The fork looks incorrect for an RB1. However, the seat alone is worth the asking price.

the fork looks fine, (it could be a model before 93/94). Its the color and paint that suggests that this is a custom paint job. The two tone scheme and colors were never offered and the decals are from a 94 frame. But the fork decals are actually look legit (aftermarket) for more evidence towards a custom paint job.

upon further investigation i found the bike using googlefu here (it does in fact look to be a custom painted 1992 RB-1): https://forums.roadbikereview.com/ret...ml#post1284159
his info on that site points to living in Georgia as of 2009.

2007 here's a full write up of the bike: https://mvillebikes.com/vBulletin/showthread.php?p=8


I really don't think someone who went through the trouble of having a custom paint job on an already nice 1992 rb-1 will sell if for that cheap.

That's some damn good detective work. It's definitely a scam.

I texted the number on the CL ad and haven't received a response. I'd chalk this up as a scam.

[h=2]57.5cm Shogun Kaze Funny Bike TT - $200 (Pilsen)[/h]
57.5cm Shogun Kaze in terrific condition. I love the way this looks, but this bike is just TOO small for me.

$200 for the frame, fork, and 24" front wheel (dura ace hub, araya rim).
$550 for everything pictured. NOS aerosports clincher disc wheel , and an almost complete shimano 105 groupset.

Will talk trades for a 60cm road bike, road frame.
