I live in Richmond and go to Fredericksburg once a week. (In a delivery van no less) I also have a business with a UPS account. I will be up there tomorrow afternoon or the middle of next week. Send me a PM if you want me to do something.

Late 70s - Early 80s Sirer: For the discerning cyclist - $700 (Boston)



Presenting a Czech-made steel Sirer frame with quality components, all in excellent condition. This bicycle in it's original condition was produced for a member of a national amateur cycling team from around the early 1980s. I had it stripped, repainted, and rebuilt with an 8 speed Campagnolo group in 1993-94. Over the last few years, I had been riding it single speed, but kept all the components.

I am selling this bike because I now am in family mode and need more space. The bike will come with all drivetrain components shown. I do have the index shifter/brakes and will include if interested. Frankly, if I were to build it back up, I'd leave the current brake system alone and add downtube shifters. Anyway, I WILL BE KEEPING the saddle and the pedals. Buyer will need to add a chain, drivetrain cables, and their own saddle & peddles. The rims are Velocity Deep-Vs, which are as rugged as they come. The rear tire is brand spankin' new. I haven't measured the frame. It fits me well at 5'9, 175lbs.

(Note: While not identical, the closest I could find to the original frame color scheme is at the following link: https://www.sterba-kola.cz/zbozi/sirer-oria-ml25 .)

I don't normally add to this thread, but for this bike I will make an exception. This has to be someones's holy grail. Just listed yesterday a very rare, Columbus MAX tube, Tommasini Velocita. This bike is absolutely stunning and, I believe, is accurately priced.

That's gorgeous...I know a member here who has one; lucky bugger. Pricing seems high to me (especially with Shimano), but it's not like they grow on trees.

I'm with you on the Shimano, but the overall condition is remarkable.

it's funny i was just about to say the exact same thing about the pricing...maybe with c-record or so, but NOT with DA although DA works better and is still a nice group

A frame only option would have me quite interested.

I really don't need/want another road bike of any sort, but these don't grow on trees.

As far as the DA goes, I wouldn't mind it one bit.

My Sintesi was originally built with DA and the original gruppo outlasted the frameset, which I just retired.

I'd MUCH rather have that gruppo than c-record to ride (except those God awful brake levers...man those are crap), it just doesn't help the value on eBay. I definitely agree that it's amazing, and condition is super. $2,500 is a little high IMO, but it's not Barry@ PBBikes insane either. If I wanted a MAX Italian, I'd consider it...but I'm willing to overpay when I REALLY want something.

Given the parts on it...he's probably giving it a frame value of $2,000...it's an amazing frame for sure, but my Marnati was less...custom for me and brand new.

If I were in the market for a brand new Tommasini frameset, this would be an excellent option.

This may take some doing by the seller, as I usually don't see a lot of higher ticket bicycles selling on CL.

Heck, there was a bargain priced Moots ($1,200) with full Chorus that languished for a few weeks locally.

Ebay is where this one will get some attention and I will watch for it.

Just for grins.......

Is it rare because of the tubing or because they didn't make very many? Or both?

I'd say both...there aren't that many MAX frames around, they were a fortune when new and Tomassini didn't make a whole lot of these. This and the Grandis MAX are the prettiest stock MAX frames I've seen.

Agreed.

There was a gorgeous Grandis that was offered a year or so ago on ebay.

So very tempting it was.... but ultimately I just decided to stop looking at it.

A Max framed Tommasini really pushs buttons for me though.

Thank goodness I turned over most of my bike funds to my wife for the boys' college funds.

Just curious, what do you have against DA levers? Other than being a tad too small for my large hands, I like them quite a bit.

I was just about to post this one. I would pay it, I was number 12 in line when I called this morning... Anyone know what year/model we're looking at? Kinda glad I can't see the drive side...

They really cut into the webbing between my fingers...they're probably the most uncomfortable levers I've used. I don't like the hood feel at all and the lever blades feel...cheap. I also think they're ugly, but that's a side issue.
