If it was in Tassie, I'd already own it :cry:

sold for $100 :shock:


PIcked this up today, not really sure what my plans are with it, I just couldn't say no!
Although frame has been sprayed it actually looks very neat and tidy in matt black and suits the vintage.
Has 28" rims, Perry of England rear hub, front hub is a Williams and also came with 2 brand new unfitted tyres.
Original mudguards were also included.
I have no idea what cranks or pedals are, if pics help anyone identify anything on the bike I would love to hear from you.
As it stands it will just be used for cruising the Esplanade near home.

I like this guy!

"happy to deliver for a bottle of red ;)"

Also, that 650b mtb is nice, shame it's a little low quality and a plain colour, or I'd be retiring the Rockhopper in Castlemaine and rolling on Hetres instead.

That 64cm Keith Davis Touring bike dropped $1200, went from ludicrously expensive to a good deal?

Pick of the day, an Orange Clockwork SS MTB with Middleburn cranks going for a good price in SA.

I've got my tall mate up in Darwin onto this. His Rohloff/Salsa Casseroll was stolen not long ago. Not sure if he sees the value in this one though...

A pretty Hoffy Frame in Brisvegas, I'd swing at late 70s. "Reynolds 531 Renovate" sticker? Is that some sort of 'genuine replacement' that you can get from Reynolds for resprayed frames? Was a tube replaced? Confused.

This ends at 7am. 0 bids, $90 probably buys it.

I am now curious as to how the grip shifts got past the bend in the bars & am scared that it might have involved cutting :shock:

I'm seeing some sort of shim/spacer thing on the inside of the left shifter, don't know what it is but it looks weird. Danger will robinson!

And on the Bertin above, i'm really glad to find out it is "not restaurated" :lol: . Destroys the value dontcha know.

Maybe they're some sort of super fancy Gilles Berthoud Shimano Altus shifters.

By the way; Bike Friday bars are cut and then an inner sleeve is added so that the bar can be disassembled. Looks like the inner is bonded in somehow...

Road Bike

Somebody has to recognise that fork crown. It's no Cinelli (I think??? I stick to the Japanese stuff) but there's some clean 600 Tri Colour hanging on it.
