This is a very different (and much more expensive) bike than the Nishiki you posted earlier. What are you looking for?

Good question. Youre right - I realize Im all over the place.

On the one hand, Id like to find a great value, steel, vintage, bike. Id like to flip it to buy something nice.

Also, love the historical aspect of vintage bikes and the way they ride.

On the other hand, Id like something really sweet. Thats why Im also looking at Pinarellos, etc. - Id like to treat myself - I suppose its maybe (more than maybe?) a mid-life crisis? Lol. But yeah, Id like something really nice.

I was looking at a used car once, and hemming and hawing about it. Best advice I ever got about cars, and about things you want to acquire in general:
my Uncle said You know what your problem is? You have to love it!

The man man is right - reason why I waited until my 30s to get married - you have to Love it (her).

Thank you both - Bianchigirll and bikemig

...odds on this are pretty favorable if you have 800 bucks and call the guy in the ad. I like to go with the odds.

True, in my area...

...and in Brooklyn, some hedge fund manager probably bought it yesterday.

...cheer up, man. Most of that young hedge fund money is chasing plastic frames, weight reduction go fastness, and Di2 wonderbikes. The numbers all say more speeds is better. The down tube shifters alone are enough to discourage most of the under 40 crowd.
