You've gotta love good solid steering geometry, just watch the pot holes. :shock:

Just won a "Peugot" mixte for $91 on a whim. Hopefully it turns out as clean as it looks in the pictures, I've been after one for ages.

It has a cool shifter though!

Ummm, two UO8's (one frame, one bike), Trail mtb frame, Hurricane mtb frame, 525 comp bike, Abuisque bike, and I've had three others go through my hands. So probably not too many. Always room for the n+1 theory.

I also have two Citroen BX's if they count as Peugeots.

Haven't been watching this thread much, but surely this is the longest thread in BNA forum history?

Oh and I stumbled across this;

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Vintage-1991 ... 022wt_1037

Now I know nice old Cromo MTB's appeal to some collectors, but I think these guys have been smoking some of Jamaica's finest.

Serious doubts about the Campagnolo branding... but a few curious bits visible from the craptastic pics

60CM CAMPAGNOLO 10 SPEED MENS RACER BICYCLE BIKE W/ SPEEDO

My ballpark size and OK starting price, but nowt my neck-of-the-woods.

Definitely running Campagnolo parts. The parts look like Triomphe or maybe Victory. Good underrated stuff. Wish it was in Brissie. I'd be buying it for the parts. The frame is stuffed based on the massive dent in the headtube.

Cant work out what the brakes are....
But anything sub $150 is still good buying for this ....if only closer to home .

They look to be Gran sport, Triomphe or Victory. All are similar in design just few differences in caliper shape and script detail. Looking at the levers they appear to be Triomphe. White hoods with un-perforated lever blades.

Actually looking closer the cranks look like Triomphe. Victory cranks had the C-Record one key release crank bolts plus the spider arms didn't taper in so much to the chainring tabs.

So I guess, other than the shift levers, the majority of the bike is out fitted with Campagnolo Triomphe parts.

Maybe if it came with Gary Fisher himself as your personal mechanic, but even then it's a bit steep. :)

Are these Centurions good? I got one of the first CF bikes made, a Centurion Carbon, from one of the members here for a good price.

that's like asking if holden's are good.

the elite rs is tange 1, which is very good quality - better than your garden variety 80s boom bikes. i don't know much about your carbon bike.

& this is Fiishers second best bike from 1991. Maybe they are just softening you up for when they list the top of the range :shock: :lol:

There was some, ahem, discussion some time back about whether posts were spoiling other members' chances, but the jury came down for 'freedom of information'. :cheesy: This thread will go forever. :lol:

On balance, I think more members have been alerted to (missed) prospects in their neck of the woods, than have others' been spoiled. Harmless fun, really, is all.
Well, no, it's not a pushbike, otherwise I'd be pushing it...

Agree.

Most of us are buyers on the eternal hunt for the holy grail aren't we? (mine's now an $50 Alan with full 50th Campag - lucky bastards, sob, sob) I reckon this thread helps a lot of us learn more about the wonderful diversity of bicycles because it covers everyone's tastes.

There's so much variety it's become the first point of call for me every day.

rusted out

Apparently rust is popular. Surely it is a joke.

Edit: tried to fix link, thought I knew what I was doing....

A bit of pfaffing around, and I got it from the item number; item 261196456541

I can't believe the amount of bids on it, 8 days out!

Tried to fix my link, but go with the one above. I bought a rideable 3spd dragster a while back for $50ish with al original parts (and a fair bit of chrome pitting). How can this one be at $46 already, there is no banana seat or sissy bar and the BB is surely siezed.
