Vintage, yesteryear and retro biking
No bids, or pulled early? Sellers name rings a bell, I think its a bit of a habit.
also wears bum for a hat.
Wouldn't be a dale if it wasn't broke...
Up to three times longer lasting than other crappy 10 speeds
On another note, I just picked up an early 90s Mongoose, Tange steel with full Deore DX in great condition for $45 - proving that there are still bargains to be had on eBay. I didn't share it on here of course...
80% off rare top brand peugeout
The 'lefty' concept didn't quite work as well for chainstays as well as it did for the fork.
Yeah.. but sheesh, Sora brakes? The sum of the parts still aint worth $50 opening bid.
It's barely worth the outside risk you'll skin your knuckles removing the few remaining useful bits off of that cancerous piece of munted aluminium. You'd get more grinding the frame into shavings, dissolving them in cat's pi55 and selling it as Emu Export (Apologies to the budget minded WA hipsters reading this... HLC if you're reading )
Apparently you can polish suicide levers & stem shifters. Whether you can get $459 for them is an entirely different question. The seller thinks unreadable yellow text will help
I literally had to squint because of the brightness when I scrolled down to that text.
Plus the front fork looks kinda strange. It might just be the angle of the picture but it looks bent.
I think it's just a daggy, cheap old road bike with a big fork offset. Hardly a serious race machine in its day.
never expected to this something like this on treebay.... not for that price... someone in QLD

I'm sorry... I'm not feeling the love for some of the old Ally you guys are covetting lately. Reminds me too much of old, fold-flat camp chairs with plastic armrests & rainbowie coloured cloth material. Just doesn't age as well as some other metal.. in looks & integrity, IMO.
That said, I'd be on that bike like a meat-seaking pirahanna for the components if the price & locale was right

Top of the line Raleigh USA Touring bike for 1983, in a 63CM seatpost in NSW. High price but not outrageous, I'd make him an offer if it were down south. Here it the original catalogue
Looks to be complete, including racks, and I can make out the coloured bits on the Deore gen. 1 deraileurs. Here are specs

Pretty close to top dollar, but it looks in very nice condition.
Way over top dollar IMO, those forks are only hi ten.
Didnt look that far. Usually they're full 531, so maybe not OG fork? 600 gruppo looks clean as a whistle though.
About the only exposure to Puch i have is a Promenade ladies bike, which has the same fork blade sticker (the frame is also hi ten).
That Alan/Vitus looks odd. No rear brakes? Levers look like cheapos although it could just be the lack of hoods. What's going on with the seat stay angle? and the rear mech I can't identify.
That Puch has been for sale three or four times in the last year. Nice bike but way too much moolah.
it's an alan. it's pretty tired from the pics i saw when i emailed the seller. victory fd, crankset. weinmann delta front caliper. no rear caliper. weinmann levers. altus rear derailleur, which usually belongs on a mtb/hybrid/bso. seller should spend $200 and sell for $400, or get real imho.
