If it's up it's available

Will be away until Aug 19th

Sorry if this is stepping on anyone's toes from IL.

I think it'd been posted before, or I might've scrolled up to high.

Either way, it's a bit strange to list a bike like this then leave town for a few weeks ... unless you're intentionally trying to generate a bidding war so you can pick thru to find the highest bidder.

I'm sure the seller has already gotten several above-ask offers at this point.

On the plus side, it does serve as a handy reminder if you spell "Ishiwata" wrong

Nice looking Fuso FRX with 8-speed Dura Ace in Denver for $550. The photos are not great but it looks like a 56cm frame.

Bike Forums is an international site. The censored word is the Australian equal to the N word.

It will remain censored.

Interesting the Ultegra group looks to be swapped for SunTour GPX. Still a decent price though.

But in this context, it's not a "word" at all. It's part of the name of the city. We also run into this with Panasonic's (I think) parent company, Matsu(youknowwhat)a . I'm sure there are other letter sequences that are parts of commonly referenced place or entity names, that also happen to be censored when expressed as a word by itself. The challenge is, can the forum software be programmed to tell the difference?

Actually, for the level of bike this appears to be, at about $200US, in the current market that's VERY reasonable. But with just a single photo, zero detail information, and a bike that can't even be test-ridden, s/he'll be lucky if it doesn't languish for a while. Bike shops are booked solid, and people want "ready to ride".

Looks like this International got parts swapped out years ago. Gotta love those plastic guidonnet levers and the brown Hunt-Wilde grips. Overpriced, of course.

Not '40s, as the seller claims it is, but cheap and quaint and neat.
