I often hear Aussies lament about the prices of bike goods there, perhaps it's reasonable for the locale.

I'd be skeptical of a no-name trispoke, myself.

Classic Bianchi Road Bike - 52cm Bicycle
[h=2]Classic Bianchi Road Bike - 52cm Bicycle - $375 (Cambridge)[/h]


I have a 52cm classic Bianchi road bike for sale. It is a great shape and was ridden up to just last year. Please look at pics as I do not know much about these bicycles other than that many of the parts are Campagnolo (Campy) and this is a solid real steel bike. I have had a couple of people asking me specific things about it, and honestly, this is a great price for an awesome classic with what looks to be all stock parts.

Price is $375. Can meet you on a Red Line stop if interested.

Tommasini 15th aniversary 62cm frame & fork
[h=2]Tommasini 15th aniversary 62cm frame & fork - $1200 (Watertown)[/h]


Here we have a rare italian lugged steel frame and fork built up as a fixie. This is Tommasini's 15th anniversary model of selling bikes in USA! Bike comes with everything in the picture. The size is 62cm and with a set of wheels, pedals, and a chain this bike can be back on the road. Bike can also be broken down and built up into a classic racing/touring machine.

Just spotted this, thought somebody might find it interesting (despite that handlebar!)
56 cm Univega frame

Apologies if this isn't an interesting frame - I don't know much about classic bikes but have mostly read praise about Univega. If I had space and box of old spares, I would have tried to build it - it's my size.

Anyone local interested in that frame? Depending on what Campy group is on this Bianchi, I would be interested in doing a split of sorts.

Judging by a couple of things, this may or may not be a 'good' frame. Univega quit using Miyata-built frames in the later '80s. Production moved from Japan to Taiwan, and mostly made by Giant.

The handlebar stem shifters identify this as a lower-end or entry-level bike/frame, the rear wheel dropouts look stamped and not forged, no derailleur hanger, etc. I'm guessing by the pic that the bumps on the downtube where shifters would normally be are cable stops? One set of bottle cage mounts would ID this frame to the late '70s-early 80s. I don't see any tubing identification stickers anywhere. More than likely it was made for 27" wheels. This bike could be resurrected if you were able to source all of the missing bits cheaply or if you were able to buy a whole wrong-frame-size bike for the parts to swap over but it would still be a $125 bike when finished.

It looks like Chorus to me, even if you were to chuck the frame in the garbage, $325 for a Chorus group is an excellent price. Buy it and post up the Bianchi in the "Frame Doesn't Fit Pass Around Game" thread, you will have many many interested people, I guarantee it.

Motobecane Team Champion "Tour de France" Pro Team Road Bicycle - $500 (Portland)




I have a 1982 Motobecane Team Champion "Tour de France" Pro Team Bicycle to sell.

This is a beautiful vintage French race bike and was top of the line back in the 80's. It rides great and would make a nice commuter bike, race bike, or show piece. Everything works well and its very light, even for today's standards.

This is a very cool bike, it was not raced in the Tour de France but it is the same model and built up to the same specifications. I have the original receipt when the bike was purchased in 1982. This bike cost $1590.00 in 1982!!

It has as follows:
Brev Campagnolo chain rings
Campagnolo Record wheel hubs
Simplex Shifters
Stronglight head set
Stronglight cranks
Simplex front derailleur
Simplex rear derailleur
Cinelli bars
Weinmann brakes


Size 56cm

If anything, congrats on keeping the bike in really nice condition from the appearances in the photos. It's a beautiful bike.

Thank you! I've started hanging around this forum a bit to learn more about vintage bikes, this sort of information is useful. Now to go and read up on stamped vs. forged dropouts ..

[TD]This old school women's 84' Pinarello with all Campagnolo parts is ready to race again. With 12 speeds this Pinarello will have to zooming down the road in retro style.

Needs new derailleur and chain, some TLC but is in great shape otherwise.

We are moving out of country and the bike will not be making the journey with us.

I was looking at that one little while ago. This same "private owner" has three bikes on CL, pics taken in front of the identical garage door, almost without moving the camera. Here:
Peugeot road bike, 54cm,. high end model
Bianchi Randonneur 54 cm frame touring bike

A month or so ago someone (my memory says several people co-wrote it) posted multiple copies of a very flaming, derogatory ad with an irritating picture in Boston CL/Bikes about someone else who posts lots of bikes, good bad or indifferent, all at about the $200 price point regardless of quality, and seemingly from three different addresses (Roslindale IIRC, Cambridge, and I forget the third), but with identical contact info. (They may have had a phone number listed at the time.)

I don't know if this is the same seller, but these ads do seem like it. They, and possibly more than half the nice-bike ads in Boston CL, have a sameness of wording besides identical pic backgrounds. The bikes appear to be pitched to students (we have lots of 'em), and typically portray every bike as super-special in a way that a non-bike-savvy buyer might not see through. The bikes seem slightly overpriced without regard to either pedigree or performance. On the other hand they would seem to be decent transportation, especially if they were well-serviced.

I really don't know what beef whoever posted those complaining ads had with the seller. Maybe the complainer(s) were burned by him, or are competitors, or are just bothered a lot by the same things that bother me a little.

If I was a potential buyer it would bother me a little that someone would be posing as a private seller when he is actually a de facto retailer but just without a store front. Well, whatever, if he can make money without scamming anyone then so be it. In parallel it also bothers me that so many of the possibly good deals I might be interested in are in fact not so good at all. If I was a seller, which I am not, I'd just undercut him. If I was a flipper looking for deals (which I am not) I might be ticked that he got these bike before I did.

Whatever. It is CL, after all. If the bike is good and not stolen, then none of those things matter anyway.

To me, all those similar ads indicate that the seller(s) was/is (were/are) a flipper(s). Those flaming ads you mention were more than a little over the top. There are a few very vocal folks who seem to have a problem with someone flipping bikes for (modest) profit.
