Garage queen. Might be able to facilitate, if it's close enough.

Lotus road bike. Pro Series 3000R. Teal and white. Circa 1989-91. Has been garaged for a long time. Needs TLC to get back on the road. Mostly original parts.

Beat up Bianchi -free (Capitol Hill, Seattle)

1991 model. Still rides though it has seen its days...

Frame 18" high, pedal to cross bar.

22" top cross bar length

Free


Have my doubts it's still available and I can't tell the model name (maybe a Sika?), but IIRC Suntour XC indicates a perfectly respectable MTB model. Almost certainly Japanese.


e) I believe it's a Nyala, only Bianchi ATB I can find with a five letter name. Think it's standard Tange MTB Crmo.

This isn't a TdF. It's much lower-end, Interclub or something maybe? Not Reynolds tubed, looks like a cottered crank possibly.

Nishiki Superbe, looks mid-70s plus or minus 3-4 years? Needs some cleanup. $150 start price, $250 BIN. Edit: Seller revised the bike to be $350 BIN a little while after I posted this - sad, I think someone would've bought it for $250, now I think it'll be lucky to clear $225 in auction format (but I hope I'm wrong)

Soviet goodness extravaganza!

If money were no option... Love the Soviet era bicycle stuff. Not sure why. Maybe the rawness of the copies...utilitarian nature.
https://www.ebay.com/sch/m.html?item..._skc=150&rt=nc



These are really interesting...where are the bearings exactly...?

No frills, baybee! Just thrills!

Love this piece. Obviously a copy of Campy/Zeus/Galli, but charming in it's own unfinished way.

Love the twist keys

Elegant Soviet/Moscow made shoes.

No doubt a minus on this one and a good reason to check first. Hate to see a kickstand on any CV bike...

Appropriately photographed on burlap. Maybe they used a Zenit.

I'm not familiar with the brand.
Torpado contract-built a number of bikes folks may be more familiar with, including Italvega. They have a wide range of work and quality of frames they built. The model you're seeing is priced at more than 3x what you'll normally find any Torpado, I'd seen the top of the line Superlights sell in the $400-500 range in exceptional shape. The one linked above is non-original paint, it's been powder-coated so you literally have no idea what condition the metal was in before it was refinished, the tubes could literally be rusting out under the powdercoat.

It looks beautiful, I won't lie. I have a Super Strada myself, it's also really attractively built. I wouldn't personally touch that one with a ten foot pole for the reasons listed above, though.

Good set of catalog pages here: The Bicycle Info Project :: Torpado Bicycles Brochure circa late 70's/early 80's

How is the seatpost held in place? And why would someone hack that?

^^^^^^ Quill seat post, if you can find one the right diameter. That said, I wouldn't pay $100 for a bike so hacked, esp. with an aluminum frame.

That Concorde is nice - $700. Mix of parts but all are high end and the cranks are Mavic, which I think might command a premium price on their own.
