Way too big for me otherwise I'd be driving down to Portland. Pics are postage-stamp sized, but I think this is a 61cm Team Gan Lemond, built by Billato.

RARE 1985 FAT CHANCE 19" frame - $340 (Acton)


RARE 1985 FAT CHANCE 19" frame, serial no. 85650, made in Somerville, MA. It has the unmistakable torpedo-type chain stays, cable routing above the bottom bracket, and the unique Fat rear cable stop on the seat stays. I believe it to be a Team Comp or Comp model due to the double water bottle mounts on the down tube. It has a Tange Prestige decal as well, and the 1985 catalog indicates it would be a very limited production Team Comp frame. That's the way I got it a few years ago. I did install reproduction FC decals on the head and down tubes, as it was naked when I got it. Unfortunately it does not have the coveted box fork. Comes with the pressed in bottom bracket with new collars, Delta Stronglight headset (needle pin bearings), and seatpost and collar. Please leave a name and number if interested, otherwise I will not respond. Priced for a quick sale.

From the looks of it, whoever built this knew what he was doing. He probably has his $600 asking price in it.

On a similar note, another nice Pug with a few modifications, mainly the rando bars (and some lovely color matching with the cable housing)

As someone who really wants a vintage MTB again, this has been speaking to me- but I really am waiting for it to possibly drop under 450 or so, as cool as Columbus EL-OS on a MTB is.

Never seen that jank of a crank on a PX10?

Steel plate chainrings with alloy arms, looks like what Ashtabula would do if they made a square taper.

Trek 750 hybrid mistakenly described as a 520, but fully equipped for touring and priced okay.

Nice bike. The owner is pretty proud of it at that price..that said..

Having spent way too much time on CL over the years, looking at bikes regionally, folks that "watch CL" for a specific bike to drop in price, generally, in the end, only get to watch it disappear. It's rare to pretty much unheard of (in my experience..I've monitored CL daily for various bike for years) that anyone drops an asking by $200 or more.

About all you can do is contact the guy and make a reasonable offer..one that is probably a bit uncomfortable for you($500?), but that's the premium you pay for a rare bike, in good shape, in your size, that's local. At that point, if the guy is going to drop the price at some point, he'll accept your offer before he relists it at the lower price on CL...and the ad will disappear, but disappear to you.

When you write a response and make an offer, make it a well written, polite note with contact info so he knows your real & serious. I've sold enough things on CL to realize 99% of the responses aren't worth reading...they get dismissed and deleted quickly. Even if I get a good offer on something, if the response is poorly written..delete..

Gorgeous bike. Id say the seller is losing money at the asking price. Racks, fenders, saddle, tires, leather bar tape..... just those alone get you close.

The bike is in stunning condition. If it were my size I wouldnt hesitate to buy it. Even with shipping it is a great deal IMO.

With the Modolo, Miche, Ofmega, and Suntour those are probably original. I couldn't find a catalog match in English. I think I found Celeste color Trofeo with I think matching tubes and parts in a Japanese catalog from 1988. Unfortunately I can not read the lingo, even if I knew Japanese it was out of focus.

Thats my best guess '88 Trofeo, can tell from the pictures.

Yep..allows you to build some assurance that you're real, on time, and rational..or not.. There's always a chance he'll take it.

It goes without saying that enough research has been done that the target bike is a premium model with respect to tubing, components..etc and not a mid-lower price-point model made by a higher end mfg. (i.e some PDG Paramount mtn bikes are very average rides) If it is a premium model, then I ask myself, "..if I think it's worth $450, and the guy won't sell, is it worth $50, $100..etc..more to me(given the bike's fit, condition, rarity..) to not have to search for another 3, 6, 12 months for another bike? ". If the answer is yes, then I cough up the extra cash and get it done. If the bike is in average condition..then I let it go. Premium+ prices are only warranted by premium condition rides. It surprises me how many near-showroom condition old bikes are out there.
