80s Tommaso - Columbus - $65?!?!

And its my size?!?! Man, I want this! But its just too far to drive with a toddler who wants to facilitate?

dont know the model, but I see a Columbus decal, and it looks to be in fantastic condition.

someone is going to get the deal of a century on this one!

Trek 728? For a hundred bucks

https://www.ebay.com/b/Vintage-Trek-.../bn_7023376201

This looks like the caliper braked 728 to me, but Im not sure, its a frankin build and the 25.5 size. Looks like the 531 sticker used to be on the fork, the brazing looks correct, two eyelets front and rear, no low rider bosses.

What do you think?

^^^^^^ Needs some therapy. They slapped a modern Shimano Tourney (read: entry level) RD on it, and a set of Suntour Accushift shifters, and a riser stem. And a nutted rear axle? A few niceties, Superbe brakes and a Dura Ace FD, but it's pretty cobbled together.

Anyone else thinking that the recent glut of "deals" are desperation sales of a bike thief's old inventory?

I was thinking, due to the current global situation, that people have a lot more time at home, so theyve been cleaning out their garages and getting rid of their junk.

You think bicycle thieves keep an inventory of bikes, like, in storage somewhere?

I mean it would make sense, maybe they steal a bike but it doesn't sell quick so they gotta store it and try and steal/sell other bikes to keep money coming in.

I suppose someone, somewhere, might have had a warehouse of stolen bikes, but at some point I would imagine the logistics become just as complicated as running a legal bike sales operation.

BUT! If I see my minty 84 Trek 610 for sale Im buy in it back! What a nice ride that was!


I miss you, old friend!
That was taken after a muddy day trip. What a zippy mile muncher.

Maybe less the thief, and more the fence? Most articles I've read about bike theft point to chop-shops as a reason more bikes aren't recovered. Dogs breakfast components on bikes priced cheaper than the frame warrants a few questions, in my mind anyway.

2 days? It looks tired, and the sew-ups look shot. I'd be interested if I could keep my wife too 😬.

That's just silly. The parts are worth the price of admission, for Pete's sake. Grrrrr. Someone buy it.

Rear cable goes around the post on the left. It's a hanger on the binder bolt that looks like it is going through the post.

1991 Mercian 58cm in St. Louis - $400

This looks really nice and in pretty great shape. The frame is 531C, looks like full 600 tricolor group. Not my size, otherwise I'd be very interested. Seller posted this in 'Vehicles' so maybe they're getting no attention and could be swayed on price.
