This strikes me as a bit pricy for a frameset but I do love these...

More for the Miyata fans - a reasonably priced 912, for once (for some reason I've seen these poking into the 500+ range)

Miyata 912 52cm - $350 (bothell)



https://seattle.craigslist.org/est/b...280450461.html





versatile steel road bike, sought after lugged frame and fork made with Miyata spine tubing. (such a sharp looking seat cluster!)
this one has a triple crank and a suntour long cage XC sport derailleur for the hills. original avocet seat and fluted seatpost. Mavic 700c rims laced to what i think are specialized hubs. nearly new gatorskin tires. Nitto stem and bars. some light scratches but overall great shape
52 cm seat tube (c to c) and 53 cm top tube
can't hold, can't deliver
please check a size chart to know if this bike fits

I've been looking for a good deal on a Brooks for a build that I got from Madhonk. Most used Brooks out there are worn out/abused and when you find a good price on a good seat, some sellers won't ship, especially to Canada. Finally got a really nice Pro so never followed up on this.

https://denver.craigslist.org/bop/d/...279202756.html
I think $90 for a Swift that looks like this pretty fair. Denver sale

Per ad:
Virtually new Brooks Swift saddle including wrench and leather treatment. I used this saddle on two rides so approximately 2-3 hours of use but decided that I'm not interested in going through a break-in period.
$90
Only trade consideration would be for a Selle SMP saddle
Available if the ad is up

Not very much Campy - a Valentino and a shifter.

Tall Pro frame and the price is right, https://offerup.com/item/detail/1073518714/

The frame looks like it would clean-up with Campy bar ends to boot.

A bit closer to me, but out of my price range and the wrong size.

Not that they are really anything to write home about, but that Sprint seat is pretty rare and in what looks to be from here pretty fair shape.

You don't really want this one, AJI. Front quick-release skewer is on the wrong side.
The right one will come along, just be patient.

Semi-seriously, I wish you hadn't posted this bike. Now my heart is filled with lust too.

You're right, and it's far enough out of my target price range that it's not really a consideration. It's like I opened Steel Vintage Bikes by accident. And what's the fun in a bike you can just get on and ride, without wasting countless hours and additional money tracking down parts???

Was going to tag you, as I remembered you were up north a bit, but was on my phone and didn't remember your username had the underscore (kept trying CO-).

A thousand bucks is a good deal for that 10th Anno Merckx, as the owner seems willing to negotiate...

Think of it as $40 for a groupset and wheels, and maybe, the forks can be straightened.
Leesburg, VA

https://washingtondc.craigslist.org/...279583700.html

Bike has bent frame. Selling for parts. 8 speed cassette is in pretty good condition. 2 speed crank is also in good condition.

I'll admit I have no idea who made these but for $65 you get a pretty nice looking road bike with a triple and what looks like brazeon shifters. Tire look miss-matched and it predates when cheaper bikes came with bottle braze-ons. I know they made lower end bikes but have seen some nicer ones, usually twelve speeds posted on here.

Vista 18 sp
$65

Listed 4 hours ago in East Killingly, CTVintage 80s Japanese with a triple crank could use handlebar tape other than that it's ready

That sort of looks like a Reynolds tubing sticker on the top but I can't really tell. Seems like I haven't seen many Japanese bikes made from Reynolds, but maybe I just haven't noticed.

Maybe this has been posted already, but there's a smallish, Ultegra-equipped Tommasini up for bid in Colorado Springs closing soon: https://www.shopgoodwill.com/Item/115831336. Looks like it has mismatched rims.

Sometimes you can do really well with these sales and sometimes it's a crap shoot.

Description makes no sense (smirking gear) and "23 inch rear rims". Unknown what the rims are (26 in?) but currently at $2 and there are used SPD pedals and what look like new SPD cleats and two rear racks if someone needs such things.

Phoenix, Az - Auction ending est. 8:41pm tonight.

Bike rims - 23 rear rims, Nordic Track parts, smirking gear, two rear bike racks. B

Same story but might be more here and bidding at $7. There's a Viscount frame on the wall, a Gitane, an Apollo frame, "Glenn's Complete Bicycle Manual" (that should cover your costs), forks and old wheels, a box marked "pedals, chains, brakes, headsets" and a box of unopened bar tape and a Brooks seat. Most of it look like junk but a few things might be fun to have.

Just be forewarned! You win, you have to remove everything you bought or pay a disposal fees.
Too bad it can't be inspected before hand.
