Vintage, yesteryear and retro biking
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.
Now what's this all about? He's had these ads on ebay for months now but doesn't provide any info. Is this how you launder money? Got me buggered.

Now that's how to put pics on fleabay.
You call that rust? I would say that's barely anything. From that pic, it doesn't look like it has any rust underneath the paint. The Peugeot That I rode on the retro ride was far worse than this(most of the underside of the top tube + small patches around) and it's still safe enough to ride. From Northern Beaches area, so quite a salty area as well.
Not my pic, but from the seller.
The rust on the screws of the RX100 groupset is normal. Ive got as much on mine.
Its a very clean bike to me! Grab it!

eyelets on the rims are still silver. go for it.
Just looked at it on ebay. No corrosion on the alloy parts. I say it'd be a nice pickup, providing it doesnt go too high from that start price. If it was taller, you'd be competing with me for it.
yes that Cecil looks great.
Triple cranks? EEEWWW
This is in my neighbourhood. So pricey but so guiltily tempted

but you would think an italian bike would have campag on it right?
Yes i see a nice stem, nice bars, all the rest japanese makes it feel... sus...
Yeah my sentiments exactly. No clue about the frame, but the only parts that attract me are the bars, stem and wheels.
Thanks for confirming my doubt
2005 is retro these days is it
Yes, but even the Italians finally worked out that the Japanese stuff worked better than Campagnolo,
i've seen plenty of italian bikes with shimano and suntour. whaddaya on about? go have a look if it's nearby. parts can be swapped put easily enough if you want campag.
Perhaps I am showing my ocd tendencies, but I would be more concerned about the strange mix of components - the front brake and crank appear to be 600 Arabesque which would date it as late 70s early 80s while the shifters and rear derailleur appear to be 105 SC from the late 80s early 90s
Yeah, certainly an interesting mix of components. Not worth $500.
I've abandoned this idea as going to Japan in 5 weeks and *might* be lucky enough to find some goodies to post home.
That's called an 'Upgrade' Often happens if you keep a bike for a few years.
A possible later update to indexed shifting? Who knows.
It does have Arabesque cranks - the sexiest cranks ever made, IMNSHO.
Fair call I think. Most of mine are upgraded well beyond spec.
