Vintage, yesteryear and retro biking
check out the project bikes. this cracker is a forum member.
I'm going to relist my Europa on your Springfield bike co site for $950. I can pay you with a lemon tree.
Ouch, shivers, I was going to ask $75 for the Superlite frame I got from munga (for $100, but I'll cop the loss), after seeing those prices maybe I should ask 2 hungie for it.
Yeah I just picked up a superlite just like that one (and a puegeot as well) off here for $80 Mines probably of more interest too as it has chromed stays haha
Must make my 60 something cm superlite worth at least a grand.
Hmm, how big .... 60?
Hehehehe what's wrong with taking advantage of uninformed buyers? Aus retail has been doing it for decades. I say good luck to the fella, if he can find people willing to pay 10x the going rate for gaspipe good on him.
Don't waste your money on a Superlite folks, I've got a spare Repco Nishiki Olympic 12 (63cm?? I think), no forks. Selling for a special forum only price of $1799 if anyone's keen.

531 professional tubing with a 26.4 seatpost? is that for real?
A quill seat post at that. Perhaps he has his stem and his seat back to front?
Some OK stuff coming up in Perth these last few days. Centurion
Well, no, it's not a pushbike, otherwise I'd be pushing it...
Have a look at this. I don't know whether you should laugh or cry.

That is pretty impressive. Considering the photos are taken almost 3 months into the future
I wonder if you could get away with 2 minature bottles and a packet of Lolly cigs?
Please don't assume I'm on Facebook.
eBay needs to get onto these alternate payment methods:
"Repco Superlite - few scratches, good rideable condition.
$740 or 3 slabs of VB and a couple of scratchies"
This bloke must be a real "Le Tour" man. Back in the days when they all would have partaken in a few lungers on the top of the Alpe d'Huez , Gauloises of course and the odd crate of vodka.
Or he's nicked them, along with the other stuff he's selling.
I'm chasing something, I've checked eblag, but before I go looking off shore, I need atleast 1 prefer 3 Huret style top tube cable guides, Huret ones are either pop riveted or screwed on to the top tube, rather than brazed. I need them for a project I'm currently working on.
Let me know if you have anything lying around. (It's no good asking i the member to member section as they're mostly modern bike riders & have very limited knowledge about anything to do with a proper bicycle).

Cable guides: I interpreted it more like these
Huret, Simplex or Shimano here
I have some in my future projects box.
ˈfiləp/ a movement made by bending the last joint of a finger against the thumb and suddenly releasing it
Here we go, obviously there is an amount of confusion.................
a so you'e bought a cheap alan carbonio because all of the guides had fallen off?
i was actually looking at just that the other day, and seriously contemplated it.
but then i remembered i have n bikes in the garage, and n+1 is not actually the correct number of bikes at all.
yes, i disagree with you all. you are all wrong. don't try to argue. it's futile (because i won't listen)
hearing only what you want to hear
knowing only what you heard
Na, fixing up a frame. Not going to try to braze to an aluminium top tube, so need the screw/rivet lugs.
Alan Carbonio? Did I see an Alan advertised somewhere, one of the eblag links or something wasn't it?
I have enough Italian bikes here without messing around with some froggy thingy.
Yeah that'd be fun , you'd have to build it with Sachs components, bet they're dearer than blinking Campy gear .
The base player from Metalica gave me a set of his strings after their concert out at Boondall twenty years ago or so. Put them on my base, which actually belonged to a mate of mine and I've never seen them since. He wanted the base back for some reason. I couldn't play anyway.
alan are italian
OOOH, where was that bike then, I sort of recall it was pretty reasonably priced?
