The crank arm type, inverted... "Sugino"? Click on pic to load an enlargement. RD does look SunTour'ish

Well, no, it's not a pushbike, otherwise I'd be pushing it...

Def. Sugino, very similar to the set I run on one of the Apollos.

Unsure about RD.
I don't care if it's a $20 Huffy or a $20k Colnago, as long as you're riding, and you're happy.

A very tidy looking SR Litage, with full Suntour Superbe Pro. Has a reserve price which I imagine would be pretty steep, but so shiny.

Reserve auctions are so stupid. Why can't people just start the auction at the price their willing to sell the bike for? Morons.

I tend to agree but I guess it gives a person some idea of the market (compared to what it is worth to the seller)

Like that seller who has been trying to sell that Shogun Team Issue for $1200 for the last 10 or so months. Probably never sell unless some pidgeon comes across a large wad of cash.

Good god almighty it's the holy grail of eBay listings.


Pick up only a long way from the city.
'Campagnolo gearing' turns out to be 50th Anniversary Super Record.

0 bids.


Seller has ended the auction now.

I am getting very over evilbay - if a buyer is unable to unilaterally withdraw a bid, why is the seller able to do so ?

THere is actually a method to retract bids on ebay. You scroll down and find the site map. Ctrl+F to find Retract a Bid. Gives you the option to retract your bid if you entered in an incorrect value, but it only works outside of 12 hours.

It is very frustrating if you want an item but I have only had it happen very occassionally. It is always the seller who has the power I 'spose.
I was really interested to see what this bike would go for. I'd have probably been bidding if I was in the same state.
What do you reckon was a fair price?

Sold now, but the derailleurs were bugging me. They're Suntour Alpha 5000s, like so:

Apollo III
Interesting looking Kuwahara. Good for a commuter or training bike if nothing else.
Don't think I've ever seen a Cecil Walker with a bolt on hanger and centre pull brakes?

That III looks nice, bit far away tho, and shed is cramped as it is. :( .

The Cecil looks horrible, ugly lugs and pressed dropouts, is it a ring in or did they sell entry level dungas?

Their stickers have popped up on many things over the years, much as Tom Wallace in brisbane would put his stickers on a bike that had been restored by him. The RD is a Huret Eco, and those Weinmann centrepulls do the job nicely. It's far from fancy, but i wouldn't call it a dunga.

Paconi Columbus tubing

Another Paconi Reynolds 531
dubious though as stickers are not strait and definitely not under the clear coat
