Nice Cadex which Id prob get, if I could get a Newcastle member to pick up and keep at their place before I can make it up.

Judging by the top tube sticker I would say struck by lightning.

No bids, or pulled early? Sellers name rings a bell, I think its a bit of a habit.

Up to three times longer lasting than other crappy 10 speeds

Nice paint!

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... :lol:

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

Riiiiiiiight....... :lol:


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.

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
http://www.kurtkaminer.com/1983raleighcat_us_14_lg.jpg

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.

Didnt look that far. Usually they're full 531, so maybe not OG fork? 600 gruppo looks clean as a whistle though.
