^^^^^^ Both that Super Sport and the Motobecane are just crying out to be made back into bicycles again. Poor things. I guess we all need to know that someone needs to charge her/his battery, too, eh....

Here's one you don't see every day. But once again, an ad composed as if he's expecting two digits, not four. Not sure how it can have "full Durace" (evidently it's 1978 and he's paying by the letter) and a "Ritchey drivetrain" (whatever that is) at the same time. And we're seeing a little too much of this guy's bachelor living room, esp. given it was a w arm sunny afternoon today. Is that ask price even in the ball park?

Beg to differ. At the age of five, I addressed a letter to my grandparents in Durham, NC, and spelled it "durm," without zip code. It was delivered. Of course, Durham was only 75 miles away, so the post man may have had an unfair advantage.
EDIT: Just noticed now that the O(-ish)P referred to the seller's brilliant spelling. Duh.

Tommasini in Hollywood, CA. Seen better paint jobs, like that wild rust-inspired one above.

https://losangeles.craigslist.org/la...102469311.html





Campy Delta brakes C-Record crank, campy parts as far as the eye can see ... but a Sun Tour RD????

$1800. I think the seller needs to knock about $1000 off of that price, otherwise this bike will still be sitting here a year from now. Oh, and someone tell them their seat post is too high.

Beautiful bike. I bet that RD shifts better than the C-Rec or CdA that would match the group better. Maybe wider gearing choices too

Guess I should have known that it would be the perfect Bianchi Girl bait bike.

This Super Sport has been sitting for probably a year, I'm not sure if it's one of the years they were good or not, but the price is right, at 80 dollars:

Interesting 1x setup. I first wondered why the front derailleur was so far away from the chainrings, but after closer inspection I saw there was only one.

I wish somebody here would buy this. It looks like it would fit me, it's not far away, it's cheap, it's red, it's got Columbus tubes and I've never owned a Schwinn, so every time it gets relisted I'm tempted. I really don't have the room or the need, though, and I can't figure out how to disappear for a couple of hours and explain coming home with another bike.

Not a brand I'm familiar with. Seller suggests it might have been made by Centurion.

@CO_Hoya yup, Novara was the house brand for REI. They began some time in the '80s or so. The ad is actually mine. I saw a Novara Viaggio touring bike and apart from the Novara label, it was a dead ringer for a 1983 Centurion Pro Tour. It was pretty crazy. The Viaggio was too small for me so it didn't come home with me. This one builds into a nice bike, which I did just to see how it rode (and thus, aid in selling). It'll fit 30mm tires, but just barely.

Nice north of the border find. Marioni, with interesting seat cluster and Campy (I dunno, Graphite maybe?) Small, but cool. I DK about MTN bike, but might be a good thing.
