I wouldn't risk the ebay sale. Call the guy, talk to him, and tell him how you'd give the bike a great home, etc. Most people will sell something relatively easily to a good buyer who knows and likes the bike. Plus, he'll be avoiding ebay fees and the hassle of a buyer who doesn't pay in the end.

D@mn. Why did I ever have kids? And why did they have to be smart enough to go to college?
That is great bike, one of my favorite bikes too, I have an 84 660 that I had all Suntour Superbe stuff put on. It's sort of retired now but that frame was a great frame and in the condition that 600 is in I would snatch it fast if I lived near there, it were, and it fit me, if it were me...that frame is way too big for me.

Ahh, I understand, thanks.

I ask this because I have never done it with a bicycle, but have or do any of you ever ship with Greyhound?

The critical mumber is 130" when shipping a bike. That is the girth + length can't exceed 130" for the lowest rate. Girth is (height + width) x 2. So on a tall bike like this the issue is height of box. My guess it it will take at minimum a 31" tall box. You can help keep down the height by removing both front and rear wheels vs. normally just the front wheel. Then with this example of a 31" high box, with the normal 8" width box the length can't be past 52" for lowest shipping cost. When you go past this the rate typically doubles.

You don't know the agony I go through locating boxes at local bike shops and sometimes cutting down a bike box to keep the customer from paying double shipping. Fedex Ground is the lowest cost provider. In some locations they are even faster than UPS for Ground Service. Seems I'm always looking for the taller boxes, at least 30" when checking the bike shops. They are often hard to find. By the way, most bike shops don't mind giving you their empty boxes and often the packing material inside as well.

...I just drove five hours to discover that this is not the size described.
The TT is about 22 1/2" c-c and the seat tube is about 22 1/2" c-t.

It is still a way cool frame, probably of French origin, badged DBS.
Definitely butted tubing, and the lugs are obvious. Current wheels
are some older tubulars. If you wanted to raise the standover,
there's room for 27's.

I think he might mail it to you if you ask politely, but make sure you get
accurate measurements. From the striping and the Stronglight cottered
crank, as well as the interesting headset and the stem and bar it's
earlier than 70's. I'd buy and rework it were it my size, but it ain't.

Here's a very pretty British Pennine located in western Montana for $700 on Seattle CL. The artwork on the seat stays is fantastic.

Cool ride from Norway! At one point DBS was having their higher end stuff built by Dacorrdi... who knows in this case.

[h=2]Super RARE 1982 Peugeot PH 12 Centennial Edition - $475 (Raleigh)[/h]


This is a very rare Peugeot carbolite 103 steel tube special. Very few were made in 1982 for their centennial celebration. Frames alone are going on eBay for $550.
Frame size is 57cm may run small cause I can't tell a difference from my daily 54cm Schwinn. Feels really good for me and I'm 5'11.
The paint isn't to terrible but if you really wanted it to be worth it's full value you could repaint and replace the worn decals for it to look brand new. Decal kits go for $46 dollars on eBay.

A couple things that are very rare and unusual for the production year...
Aero frame tubing and stays.
And Internal cable routing.


The frame and original components are made in France.
Everything on the bike is original except for the rear Shimano Eagle derailleur, the brake levers, saddle, tires an bar tape.
It is equipped with the very rare orional CLB rim brakes (front and rear).
Original Peugeot front derailleur (made in France)
Original bottom bracket (axle is actually stamped with Peugeot made in France see photos for more detail).
Original pedals.
Original Custom Crank.
Original shifters.
Original cassette.
Original Peugeot handle bar plugs.
Original wheels (made in France).
Dia-comp brake levers.


Everything is in beautiful shape.

I replaced the old dry rotted tires with blue and black vittorias.
New tubes
New chain
New cables and housing
New orange bar tape
Bicycle is ready to ride if you are purchasing to cruise around town on. Everything has been professionally tuned, lubed, and adjusted. Wheels have been trued. Headset and bottom bracket has been overhauled (new ball bearings and grease). This bike is a true beauty for those who want a slick ride or just wanting to collect.

I would like to get $475 OBO but I am VERY OPEN TO OFFERS!!!! Feel free to make me an offer by email, call, or text
@ (Nine37)-470-648six. Trying to sell this thing ASAP due to my gf not wanting me to have so many bikes in our apartment. Contact me with any questions or if you want to come see it.

Thank you
Brandon

I have bought sold/bikes as far away as Elwood, IN (from Sloar) and as far as 600 miles away by combining trips.
