Fuji Espree Ď85

I have a Fuji Espree Ď85 but itís 21 inches and Iím 6í0. Everything is original but the saddle. It looks like it came straight out of the catalog. I canít post urls cause I donít have 10 posts yet. I like Nishikis but am open to other bikes. Had a sweet comp III and sold it cause Iím dumb.

1991 Miyata 1000 LT



Itís a long shot but who knows...
Iíve got a 1991 Miyata 1000 LT in the 57cm size, and Iíd love to swap it for a 1000 in the 60cm size.
Iíd prefer the 1991, but Iíll totally consider other years. I am looking for the STB tubing, though. Frame only, full bike, we can work something out.
cheers!

Here I have a VITUS Aluminum 979 Dural frame in 58 CM. Too big for me. Frame is in great shape and has no damage.

Im currently riding a 55 CM or even possibly a 56 Cm. Im looking for a Steel frame in trade.

Yes these were made famous by the Great Sean Kelly who rode these frames to many Classic's victories in the 80's. If I remember correctly Robert Millar rode a Vitus in Peugot stickers in the Tour De France too, but he had the Carbon version.

These frames have just enough flex and stiffness.

WTT 1990 EM 10th Anniversary 56cm frame only for same or comparable EM in 60cm or bigger (and 60 may be too small). A few standard chips and scratches as usual.

No worries, imho you're pretty good at this whole C+V racket, get yer game on, find me a big one, needs to be iconic, 7-11, Molteni, Faema, Motorola or preferably same 10th. It actually needs to be 62-64 at least but could be smaller if it has to.

I would love for you to have this, it came from a very good friend and stewardship is important as well.

Like one of these (link)? Available local to me, but too rich for my budget.

WTB/WTT 1982 Trek 720/728: My 24" for your 21"

This is a long shot, but here goes:
Is there anyone out there riding a 1982 Trek 720/728 that feels their frame is too small/ doesn't ride it anymore, because...?

I'm looking for a 54cm (21") 1982 Trek 720 frame to buy or exchange for the 24" 1982 Trek 720/728 that is currently in my garage not being ridden nearly enough.
I would ideally do a frame swap with someone that has a similar condition '82 720. Frame has no dents or dings, minor paint blemishes on the stays indicative of use. Overall, I'd say the paint is in very good condition, some peeling of the downtube decal but no fading, some oxidation on the head badge. All in all- gently ridden for 36 year old frame.

I can post pictures for someone that is in a serious and similar like mind. I'd need to break it down to F,F,HS but if you're interested in a full build swap, it is mostly stock with the exception of riser style bars and a more recent SRAM rear derailleur, tires are going to need replacing, but most everything else as I mentioned is original stock.

Might consider other Reynolds 531 tubing Vintage Trek Touring frames in a 21" size.

Located in Huntington Beach, CA

Anyone interested in a big Lemond Tourmalet? It's a 59mm but measured
c to c. so its more like a 62 with a long top tube. I'd be interested in a comparable bike or frame swap closer to 56-57mm. Fat tire fit would be a plus. I'd also be interested in a trade for a solid 126mm clyde friendly "rando" wheelset 650b or 700c. I'm not particularly attached to the 32h wheel set so if the frame go's they would be available.

59mm Lemond Tourmalet

70s Schwinn Sports Tourer swap?

I'm looking for a small (19-21") 70s Sports Tourer, Super Sport, or Superior. There's a BIG one (63cm) in fantastic shape on the local CL, but nothing in my size. Anyone have a small Sports Tourer, Super Sport, or Superior they'd want to trade for this big guy if I picked it up?
