No pics, but sounds like it could be a nice bike with those components.

Some sort of scam here. I responded to this ad this morning. No one returned my email. Looked a lot like a Moulton. So I googled Moulton and the pic in the ad came from a stock photo from google.

I certainly don't know my Pug models, but the white one in Chicago looks like that one in Savannah.

Much of this is pure CL BS. They sold for around $300 ea and were made by Panasonic for Sears. Nobody went to Sears to buy a $300 bike in the early 80's so Sears eventually blew most of them out for $199. They are a nice bike, but were not a high end frame.

If it weren't for the snow, I'd see it as an excuse to revisit the Fox River Trail.

Thanks for including the vintage ad, pretty cool.

I think a great deal of what he states is either cut and paste from something he googled or some story he was fed by the person he bought them from.

Vintage 1985 19" TREK 620 TOURING Bike - $350 (Eagle Rock/Pasadena)
https://losangeles.craigslist.org/lac...523237388.html

For sale is a classic 1985 Trek 620 touring bicycle. As a rough guide, the 19" frame can fit someone from 5'4" to 5'8". Very nice condition with a few scratches. No dents or dings.

This is a TRUE TOURING bike, with relaxed geometry, long chainstays, braze-ons for front and rear racks, ultra low gearing, triple water bottle mounts, etc. Includes rare matching Blackburn Expedition rack and water bottle cages. A notable feature is the FULL Reynolds 531CS frameset, including the fork! The Trek 620 was made for only 3 years and is one model above the highly regarded 520. 1985 model is most sought after year because the chainstays is 47 cm which is the longest on touring bike made by Trek (same as model 720). Hand made in the USA.

Compare it to the popular Surly Long Haul Trucker or current Trek 520 ...both are mass produced in Taiwan, made out of 4130 chrome moly and don't have the beautiful lugs. (they also cost 3 to 4 times as much ;-)

Red 58cm Peugeot PX-10 with two pairs of wheels, $699.

https://losangeles.craigslist.org/wst...523427492.html

It looks nice, but it doesn't look fully PX-10-ish, though I can't put my finger on it. What else might it be?
