He would have done it up, only to find he looked like a chimp on a BMX. Doesn't look a 6'2" bike to me. :lol: Well, obviously...
Well, no, it's not a pushbike, otherwise I'd be pushing it...

Yes a 6'2" bloke certainly does not ride a 22" vintage bike. Unless he's an ex-hipster of course.

Wonder what that fork crown is like? Would think it was too early for unicrown, which might be a good thing. Looks OK though, except for the price being a bit marginal.

is that electrical tape wrapped around the rear derailer?

seat post bolt has been replaced. Maybe thats nothing, but I bought a bike recently which looked that that and it turned out the seat post had been swapped with one which was too small, and the bolt like that used to crank up the tension - but of a hassle to sort out...

I think its an old suntour rear mech. I seem to recall stuff with a blue line through it.
It does seem a bit pricey though.

Called Suntour 'BL', no prize for guessing what that stands for. Mid range stuff, but kooky.

Bicycles Three fairly nice bicycles in a group sale here, all with Shimano 600 Arabesque kit in ratty condition. Personally I'd be interested in that Tange Champion Mixte.

Also, this has to be close to my dream road bike, although not built like that :x . Team Miyata

Hillman double eyletted frame. Crap photo but maybe worth a visit.

Nice double butted 26" Ricardo Frame. Would be a great build up for an off road tourer

Overpriced Repco Nishiki, but good to look at.

Dancelli 350, i've seen people pay more (MEL)
Trek Sport 370 in "fair" condition, fair start price (VIC)
Giant Kronos 56 with extras (AT) a reasonable price (SYD)
Vintage collectors item? a description which was quite insightful! (Windsor)

That rear dropout looks a bit munted. Might be the lens though...

Not cycling related, but words cannot describe how badly I want this thing, the velociraptor cage from the opening scene of Jurassic Park. Currently at over $100,000 :shock: .
