All original and in close to mint condition. Full Shimano 105 groupset.
Hubs, brakes, cranks , etc. etc.
Low mileage and in wonderful condition. A minor nick on the seat stay from leaning against a wall.

Tallest Centurion I've ever seen!
'87 Centurion LeMans RS
Tange 2 frame...Shimano Light Action derailleurs

Japanese made Road bike - $200 (New Haven)

https://newhaven.craigslist.org/bik/3896835127.html




Centurion Le Mans RS.
Needs repairs but nothing apparently too serious; tires, chain adjustment, brakes, bar wrap.

i"m 5'10" and the bike is a little large for me

(really?!...just a bit too large )

I'll make sure to add to them later when I get to a PC.
I'm posting these from my phone, which I don't find easy.
It's just I see these good listings and I hope somebody from here can at least get a chance to buy them... it's my only contribution so far to this community.

My size too.
Don't know if this is overpriced since Medicis don't seem get much respect.

Medici Pro Strada 53cm steel - $700 (se)

https://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/bik/3901361356.html





Late 80s vintage medici road bike in excellent condition. campy dropouts, columbus tubing, completely rebuilt from the ground up using ultegra 9spd kit. drive train has been totally overhauled including new chainrings, chain, cassette,bottom bracket and rebuilt rear hub with new freewheel, also new brake pads. dura-ace headset, gold mavic cxp 33 rims, and cinelli stem/bars round out the package. the paint is the usual for high-end bikes of this era that were chromed under the paint, lots of chips but no rust. this bike handles really well and is super comfortable, it is just unfortunately too small for me (5' 10") so I don't ride it enough. bike is actually pinker than pictures show (it is not purple).

1990 Bridgestone RB-1 - $500 (Kenton Neighborhood)

https://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/bik/3901624720.html






I have had this bike for about a year and I absolutely love it! But I don't have much use for it anymore and would love for it to be in the hands of an owner who can use it more often.
It has many gears, and rides incredibly. In perfect shape. I bought it for $550 and haven't use it much. I am throwing in a new set of fenders, unused (a $40 value) and my helmet too if you want it!

This is one of those GP bikes or whatever that followed the MTB boom as a "mini genre". Cool bike.

This has been on Chicago CL for weeks. I think it goes to show that the real vintage bikes(pre 1980) have very limited following and desirability.

No, what it shows is that low end odd ball bikes don't have a following. All those bikes were were low end rebadged Raleighs. They had 30 to 35 pound gas pipe frames, and poorly designed Huret Allvit components that had constant issues or sometime Simplex which on the low end were equally as bad, with probably the worse brakes ever made, dangerous when wet steel rims. In a nut shell, I wouldn't even waste the gas to get it for free. It's not an investment bike and there are far better used commuter bikes a person could find, and if a person was that desperate to get a bike for commuting they could get a better and new bike from Walmart for almost the same money!

Say what? Sarcasm? Is this the C&V forum?
Gas pipe, Huret and Simplex(though this has Cyclo Benelux derailleurs), these are all the things I look for in a bike.
Mercy! It's a frickin cool bike.
