Vintage, yesteryear and retro biking
Shogun Ground Breaker...Apparently.
This one's got me stumped! Ground Breaker stickers on an Alpine GT? Everything looks completely original, but that makes no sense...
It's pretty nice anyway.
Looks like a flat to drop conversion of a hybrid to me. I wonder how well the front shifting works, it'd probably be a pain if it had to be adjusted.
Here is a flat version:
Yeah right. I just always thought Ground Breakers, Trail Breakers, Prairie Breakers were 26" mtbs, the Metro was their 700c hybrid, and the Alpine GT the touring bike. That thing is a high end, 700c Metro with drop bars and a MTB name. Wacky.
Did anyone get this? I totally missed it, but its cool to find someone who owns a Carbon-R frame and quite local too! $200 is a steal, and its got a full 7400 group.

The back brake cable looks like it maybe rubs on the rack too.
It must have been sold as a tourer - there is a full set of guard and rack mounts scattered over the bike.

I saw it and thought it was pretty cool (it is), but local pickup and not needing it ruled me out. Nice bike though!
Pretty amazing Satan's Deuce paintjob on a stem shifting 70's(?) 2 star
Sandblast and rattlecan it orange, then chop-n-flop and fyx it...
Too small for my melon, but i'd be on this in a flash otherwise. $10 brand new.
I hope it's your tongue that's making your cheek bulge and not anything else...
...whatever the road rules, self-preservation is the absolute priority for a cyclist when mixing it with motorised traffic.

Anyone in the Brisbane area?
Rusty old 60cm frame but with very good Suntour and Cinelli parts.

BTW, just bought myself another pair of 1960s anondised Weinmann brake levers, this time from South Australia.

That paint scheme sure stands out .
The Bridgestone looks a reasonable price too.

"cheap Columbus frame MBK Super Record"
Plenty of MBK Distain online…..."According to Robert Millar - stood for Made By Klingons as they were such a dog to ride. ....Only high end bike I know of from them is the Cofidis replicas.....Now owned by Yamaha and synonymous with heavy, excessively stiff and essentially nasty town bikes. You won't be able to buy them at my shop. ….Was Motobecane, then got bought out and became MBK"
=>> looks like a 25" frame....What are MBK really like to ride? French...so BB non standard?
The seller is Munga's "best" mate
Mont Ventoux 2014 - Must train hard
She's certainly a typical Logan special that's for sure.
looks like a tecnotrat frame to me. think cheap europa.
a smart-aleck, a satirist, and a cynic walk into a bar..
Buy of the month - $40, Reynolds 531, outlined Nervex "butt joints" , I don't know anything about those blue coloured brake levers but I'm sure somebody does. 60s? Paintwork looks to be in surprisingly good condition and the frame is really nicely made.
Cheap as chips
Anybody near Warrnambool?
That's a nice midgets bike
It certainly nicely made with some good gear on it.
I love how sellers say, "tyres hold air" like that's a consideration to people looking at bikes like these.

That's what we get for being polite and giving the guy a chance to wake up before calling...
who needs to go driving today for work. Destination isn't important, just the actual driving I do on the way. I was thinking that Warrny might be a nice place for lunch...
