These are the ones with a BB that must be retained & regreased - Malvern Star tried at the time to change the standard threading & put in a tab slot that makes it impossible to upgrade to sealed BBs and fit British standard BBs. Avoid this model entirely! I had one once, and it frustrated me greatly till I had it explained by the guy at the LBS who was old enough to remember them.

Quick 10 minutes to go at $55. I can pick up if someone is interested and you can get it off me in Brisbane.

Yep, nevermind.....Thought local pick up may have deterred others and it could do for a steal, apparently not.

Custom made thing, looks like it's Tange 2 and *very* lightly used - check the rim sidewall wear! It's like a track bike. A strange mix of components, Nitto stem with Cinelli bars, Campag cranks with Shimano 600 FD and Suntour Cyclone RD, Mavic rims... Still it's all high end and mint condition.

Not bad looking Graecross with some very unusual cranks and shifters.

EDIT: And here's a Jennay bike! With a rather...interesting...disclaimer.

EPIC saddle angle! (half decent Clamont hiding under it btw)

Those cranks are the predecessor of Dura Ace 9000. :lol:

Another, with the drillium cranks and rings. Will it stay cheap?

Positron (from the company that brought you 10mm pitch chains). Are these the Cranks with the ratchet so that the chain was always moving and you could change gears whilst coasting?

A world of frustration awaits...

I've had a bike with a Positron group (though the rear derailleur was completely different and it had stem shifters) and the cranks didn't bear any resemblance to those.

An interesting one here, a run of the mill De Carlo that looks to have bent forks. I messaged the seller about the forks and questioned the "made in Australia" in the description, he got back to me very quickly saying he'd check the forks and that the bike was an early one made in Adelaide before production moved to Taiwan. Has anyone heard of that before?

My work ebay account does not need a decent feedback rating. Im tempted to use it to bid on the jennay bike just so I can meet them.... :twisted:

All the disclaimers seems to indicate that he knows something about the bike, yet the fork is on backwards. Seriously, how can people get forks on backwards??????
