Wowzer! These were all recalled for a problem with the bonded frames. This thing should not even be on the road, although I also had one. This is a Comete with Euro components and I had a Galaxie with Shimano 105. Same frame, and this one appears to be in very nice condition.

Beautiful and rare champagne colored 1985 “Mont Cenis” model sporting most of the original components. Has been stored/displayed for years and time to let it go. Very light for its day sporting Super Vitus 980 tubing, Campagnolo Triomphe cranks, derailleurs, Modolo Speedy brakeset, Mavic rims, old Continental 700x20 tires and excellent original Vetta saddle.
Aren't those models PSV because of the Super Vitus frame?

For whatever reason it switched to PSN in 1985. I think this was right when Peugeot (at least in the US catalogs) was shifting from their old model-number system to the more standard "just call your dang bikes a model name and print it on the top tube like a normal person" system.

However that stem sure looks like it could be FR!
Yeah, my attention to detail is lacking. Upon further inspection, it looks like it was a repaint and someone tried to replicate the red and gold bars. Still, cleaned up nicely. Added a few more pics of some details. There's some quirks to this frame, stem etc. I'm sure someone here will know what this bike is.
I think the seat post is on the smaller side. Tried to measure (pic posted) but is kinda hard with just the standard measuring tape. I need a set of calipers.

A big ol lot of hybrids and MTBs in Seattle at $150 a pop. The Raleigh Technium and Gary Fisher seem worth a peak for sure, and I like the decals on the Bridgestone Citylimit

Could be the start of a nice build for a smallish rider:

https://madison.craigslist.org/bop/d...162443052.html

Small Schwinn Premis frameset - $75




Same seller (you can recognize the dungeon background) has a few other items, including a mid '80s Trek bare frame for the same price as this. BARE, not even a fork, paint is shot, still $75.

Came across an Etsy store with lots of NOS and modern reproduction head badges for reasonable prices. Vintagebikestore on Etsy.
Just asked them if they could do a Koga-Miyata one.

For example, here is a classic brass Batavus head badge but it was made in 2017:

Probably a bit overpriced due to the lack of original parts, but a nice old Trek in the category of "bikes that are hard to find because they share the name as a highly desirable vintage MTB", also with a fairly rare decal set. Also I think the original spec of this was SR, not NR.

531 Trek for an actually reasonable price. A bit beat up but not terrible:

Trek classic road bike $200



"Classic Trek. Reynolds 531 frame with mostly Shimano components with Cinnelli bars, stem and Campy/Mavic wheels. Local pick up."

$500 for this? https://www.facebook.com/marketplace...4031776519516/
It's rare I ever find anything with a small frame - so I like to give them a good look, but... thoughts?

Columbus Cromor tubing. 48cm (CtoC). Shimano 600 components with the exceptions that the brake levers are Shimano 105. Condition is pretty good for the age and has never been restored. Some of the decals are a little rough. No scratches or dents. Minor rust at the brake cable guides on the top tube. New tires, tubes, and rim tape. Needs a new saddle (original). This bike is a great ride – especially at longer distances. Asking $500. + shipping.

Cromor and an old 600 group- probably $300-ish. Italian tax, probably.

That freewheel looks like it has about 4-8 too many teeth for the short cage NR, that gear it's in in the picture might be the max useable one in the big ring. That makes it about a 9 speed.

+1, it probably had more of a corn-cobbish FW, and/or a smaller large chainring.

But the Dettos are definitely C&V.

Oh, and the seller better check the brakes on his car......

Not My Bike - Too Distant For Me To Facilitate

2 Vintage Schwinn Road Bikes - $150 (Kernersville)

Posted 2020-07-27 13:17









"Two vintage mid-1980’s Schwinn road bicycles. The owner was very particular about his equipment and the bikes have been well-cared for and protected from rain. The wear on these bicycles is almost exclusively due to several years of disuse.

Asking $150 for the pair

bicycle frame material: alloy

bicycle type: road
condition: fair
electric assist: none
frame size: 22 Inches
handlebar type: drop
make / manufacturer: Schwinn
model name / number: Traveler/Voyageur SP
suspension: none (rigid)
wheel size: 27 in"

https://winstonsalem.craigslist.org/...166859763.html

(Seller, who seems like a nice enough bloke, re-measured the Voyager SP for me. It's 22 inches c-t which is an uncomfortable inch too small for me. I've continued to try to talk myself into shrinking since reading the listing when it first posted. Does not seem to be working.
Edit: And he doesn't have the front rack.)

Nah. Looks like a 28t big cog, which usually works fine. The chain may be a bit short, though. And the housing is way too long.

At $150 for two, that seems like a very good price for a Voyageur (ignoring tye pump and rack and bag) even if you gave away the other bike!
