Old racing bike. Looks the real thing.

Somebody buy that now! It looks like a Torpado with a twin plate crown and all the original parts - very desirable.
I'd be in there like a flash except it is so far away.
That is nice isn't it?
Gah. Second in line
Damn! That thing is beautiful. You can imagine how good it would look after a wipe down too.
Before the seller pulls the add -
Torpado racing bike is sold!
Personally, I check the Gumtree Melbourne listings once a couple of hours. I once went after a pair of essentially new Randonneur tyres for 20 bucks, I contacted the seller within 10 minutes of the post, and it was gone. Moral of the story, good deals go fast.....
I contacted a Gumtree seller about a bargain priced Chariot Cougar kiddie trailer ($250 used, RRP$840 new but they hold their value extremely well) and the listing only had 3 views on it. I was still 2nd in line and missed out. Definitely got to be quick.
Gumtree seems to have better stuff on it these days - eBay not the same as it once was imo
Nice looking Apollo III in Sydney. Don't suppose anyone is within cooee of this, and if so would be happy to pick it up and box for sending for me (happy to make it worth your while)? I'm getting sick of breaking alloy frames so I'm after a large steel frame on the lines of this for commuting duties
I know..... It would easily have helped me forget about my healing frame that is probably beyond repair
Very tastefully done, but christ almight really? I took a glance at the price, then started rolling through the pictures, and decided that yes it was nice, but not worth 3 and a half grand. Closed the pictures and took another look at the price!
There are 2 forum members nearby there. However, Ill let them choose if theyd like to help you out.
Anyway, a couple things
Interesting frame with what looks like to be Suntour GPX

Big steal on this one! $200 for a Daccordi with Columbus Megatube and what I believe is DA 7700.

Custom fixie with a coaster brake?
bychosis (bahy-koh-sis): A mental disorder characterised by symptoms, such as delusions or hallucinations, that indicate impaired contact with reality not containing bicycles.
Bent forks. Don't bother. Much nicer bicycles popping up in Tassie all the time anyway.
Damn, it's the wrong size. Otherwise...
Eep. I know the seller. Never thought he'd part with that one. Although, there's a whole lot more Brit-porn (and other very tasty pieces) in his stable, so I guess he'll cope with the loss.
Fakeedit: Eeep again. He's selling the Moots as well!

I"m glad that Torpado has sold, I hope it went to a good home.
Peugeot Mixte that is much nicer than usual. Some Sachs New Success parts, a higher quality large frame, full aluminium fenders and drag bottle dynamo under the BB with lights mounted neatly on fenders. In excellent condition too.
Ahh damn, just saw the funk wheelsize. 26 x 1/4. Possibly a good candidate for a 650B conversion anyway.
It is probably a typo - it looks like a 27 1 1/4 to me.
So we get the leaders we deserve and we elect, we get the companies and the products that we ask for, right? And we have to ask for different things. – Paul Gilding
but really, that's rubbish. We get none of it because the choices are illusory.
+1 on that. Peugeots are French and that looks very 70's/80's. I doubt they would be using a British wheel size that died out in the 50's, (But... they are French... )
+2, i've had a few of these before of what would seem to be similar vintage, all were 27 x 1 1/4
Unfortunately not in my size! Thanks for the fork assessment.
This looks alright for the money. In Perth though.
