They've updated the ad, but I'm sure that's Urbana, IA, not IL.

Frejus Track Bike. I went and looked at it. Pretty cool frame. Nice saddle and Nitto stem.

Just notified that this sold for $320. If I had some regular income I would have bought this bike. Someone picked up a real gem.

Pretty interesting frame, can anyone sleuth it?
https://sandiego.craigslist.org/nsd/...106882862.html

"Unknown steel frame name, just said Cinelli at the bottom as you see at the photos and Columbus steel , no decals or marks, just a Shimano sticker on the top tube, full of Shimano 105 components and continental gatorskin tires, I tried to search at google but I couldn’t find anything about it or similar bikes, so if you know something about it and you want to share with me I will really appreciate it.

a person sent me a message and told me that it could be bike of a exposition, just to display the Shimano 600 components, that make sense, but if you know more about it and you want to share with us that would be great!"

not sure about the builder but the group is likely worth about $250. Other parts like seat and bars could bring it up about $100, but unless it is your size likely not a great buy. JMO, MH

Oh, I'm not interested in buying it, I just love a good mystery

Also, seems someone is moving out of town and could be willing to haggle? Who knows, but they're nice bikes.

Ross MTB - $250 Folsom, CA

I'm looking for a vintage MTB and I can't tell if this is a good deal or not. I don't know much about bike value or classic models, but I've been reading this thread closely for a month. I see that the Ross chrome frames have a following and came across this one. It seems to be missing some stickers...

I see Suntour roller-cam brakes, which are highly sought-after. If those pedals are Suntour and not VP knock-offs, they're also prized.

Ross made great mountain bikes. If you are tall enough for it, buy it and ride it.

1983 Trek 600? Small, only $100 in Palm Desert, CA

Looks like a 1983 trek 600 to me, and in great shape too. Only $100. It is wayyyyy too small for me, and a bit too far due to quarantine.

Tall Simoncini with Columbus SPX here on local CL. No idea if $980 is a deal or not, but it doesn't seem that high. That seat has seen a few miles.

Pics don't show enough though from what I can only see, looks decent. Priced in line, given market but as things tighten up, maybe find one even lower. All relative and if one really wants a particular bike, consider condition and any additional expense, if needed.

I think they're neat old beast but odd at the same time. Its a slug performer though these chrome Ross mtb have appeal in the retro crowd.

BTW: I'm not fully up on them but have seen the chrome Ross mtb in either Ishiwata or Tange tubing. Chrome plating is not high quality, its not easy to find really clean condition frames, especially at the joints.
