If this person took a selfie, he'd get his left ear and half an eye Colnago
Near Griffith. Visit Cocoparra National Park while you're there. Try not to get shot.

Not bad. 8 speed record makes it pretty much worth the BIN.

Bit hard to make out details from the photo, but would probably be a pretty good pickup.

Campagnolo mirage ( might be athena brakes and crankset) - nothing really special but would be a nice rainy day beater for the campagnolo inclined.

The plastic levered Mirage brakes are absolute rubbish though - flexiest brake lever ever made.

Oh yeah. Probably xenon. Mirage were metal.

There was an inevitability to it - nobody makes affordable steel roadie frames any more (the gazillion cheap fixie frames don't count) and anything which still has the original stickers is worth far more than something anonymous. I'm starting to think a $150 shogun or centurion is good buying, even the entry level ones like the Selectra are good riding and take modern parts, what's not to like?
