Here's a nice one on Letgo in metro Detroit. Louison Bobet $150, looks like early 60's. I would get it, but I don't see myself riding it and I'm not a flipper.

Nice looking Le Champion, reasonable starting bid price and shipping. I really like the color scheme on these. I guess the card in the rear spokes is in lieu of a model?

Ha! I actually was wondering if that was included in the sale though. Marketing...

For GTs it can depend on the year in the earlier 70s the tubing was nothing special but later they moved to Vitus main tubes, I have a 78 with those tubes and really like the way it rides, it has a vitus tubing decal

My eyes aren't so great but looks like Campy bits on this one. Brakes only? Don't know much about these bikes.

Speaking of Campy, 12-speed chorus on sale for $1000 over at Velomine: https://www.velomine.com/index.php?m...zi_ZBAoPsOOEbI

I'm guessing that not only would my wife be cool with this purchase, she would be mad that I even wasted time asking her! I think I'll buy it immediately!

Near new condition, twenty year old Gazelle oma bike in NH: https://nh.craigslist.org/bik/d/exet...959806086.html

I bought its companion diamond-frame bike two days ago, and it's in cherry condition. The diamond-frame bike has a Sturmey front drum, Shimano nexus 7 IGH, and an early rollerbrake on the rear, so probably the step-through is set up similarly.

If it's still inexplicably for sale, the next time I'm in Portland visiting family, I'll look him up.

And a 10-ish% discount if you order four or more. Because, you know, could you get by with only one or two?

I am going to have a hard time pretending that I didn't see this. It's my size and I don't need it but gosh I love the color scheme.

I'm posting this one because it's suspicious

Something odd about this ad. Seller clearly knows nothing about the bike. I emailed with a request for the serial number so I could date and size it. Response was that the seller didn't know the number. Stolen?
