Raleigh, Schmaleigh

I know nothing about Raleighs. No matter. Nervex lugs on 531 DB tubes, components are better than free. And pretty good to boot. If that's not a front end problem at the top tube, this bike is seriously underpriced. Nice find!


[=ltokuno;21437593]I'm pretty far form being a Raleigh expert, but this looks like a nice lugged frame. I wonder if the Carlton hoods are original.

I dunno, nice lugs but a Competition typically has at least SOME chrome on it, I see none on this frame. Bad repaint, I dunno. I think the top tube is OK, it's just bad lighting.

This one has been for sale forever at $100 in SLO, but it's a Super Course. It still has the original paint, I wish someone would buy it, I may have to:

A hunnerd bucks? And they say box stores are selling out of bikes? (I find it hard to believe, even in this disposable age, that the bike is still avaiable.)

After looking over the catalog for this generation, it does have nice components. Would buying this to strip and transfer parts be sacrilege? If the frame would sell for $50 I'd come out way ahead on $... but how would my karma be? Seller reckons frame is 19" btw. Not yet sure which measurement that is.

Likely the seat tube, this definitely seems like a 50cm frame with the head tube length.
I can't help you on the karma problem, though I would not approve stripping a rideable frame.

1988 Centurion Ironman Master Dave Scott $300

Hi all, new to this forum, new to vintage bikes (or buying them, anyway...), so hope this is the right thread, etc.. Found this on Indy CL today, looks in fairly good shape to the untrained eye, but I wonder if I should worry about the paint chips. What do people think? Thanks in advance.

A very good deal for a a sweet riding 2000 Litespeed Tuscany, if in very good condition.
I've been getting $1000 +/- $100 plus shipping for mid-90s to 2001 Litespeeds I've sold over the last 8 years.
Most had Shimano components.

All depends on the market there. That's more money than what it would fetch here. But a quick perusal of your local CL indicates that it's at least in the ball park. And the bike appears to be well-tended, and is obviously well presented by someone who knows what s/he's selling

As for the paint, good luck finding a 30+ year old steel bike without paint chips. Yes, it's work to fix them, but it's all doable.

Yes, I came to the same conclusions; luckily it sold in the 3 minutes it took me to write that first post. Saved me the trouble of deciding.

Primarily a function of prosperity relative to the world at the time. Large markets have nice bikes, backwaters don't.

BITD when Schwinn called their hybrids "cross" bikes. I have this same year, model, color, and I think the same size, a blast to ride.
