WTS - Brisbane - Technicomps Europa

Postby munga » Mon Nov 12, 2012 2:02 pm

Hi, i'm selling this alloy Europa, built by Technicomps. i'm guessing early 90's.
too big, need the room, out it goes.

pics:

seat tube 56cm c-c
top tube 57cm c-c

wishbone rear stays
7sp 105 components
all decals in good nick
dirtier than your other half
brand new shimano 6400 brake pads and regreased bottom bracket (no pitting)
campagnolo headset
araya rims

this bike will need going over - wheels need attention, needs cables throughout, tyres&tubes.
will make for a very nice bike if you spent a weekend and a few $$ on it.
suit someone with some spares (and some spare time) in the shed.
would make a good commuter/spare bike
$150 as is

Edit: pics added, typo's revised.

NO PM's. PLEASE POST IN THE THREAD.

that thing is awesome!

steel or alumnium fork?

also, any idea of condition of drivetrain? chain skipping? $150 seems like a super buy! this is a bump and a "get yer act together Bris-locals and buy this". I remember those 7sp 105 shifters having a wonderful THUNK of an index.

thanks for the bump.

cr-mo fork - bit more supple, bit more weight. everything's a trade-off.
drivetrain's fine. i had this group on my shogun until the weekend and moved it all across to the europa. shogun now sports some new campagnolo veloce.
cranks aren't pretty, but they function as well as they should.
if i don't get a bite this week, i'll invest a few hours over the weekend cleaning it up, take some more pics, and adjust the ad accordingly.

realistically, you're buying this as a project, almthough you could get this on the road with new cables, bartape, tyres and tubes.

i don't think the hubs are 105. probably exage.
seatpost is a selle san marco item, which i should swap out and sell seperately.

Interested in that I like it, but I'm short on cash at the moment, moving house and all. But I like the components and the price.

When it says "alloy", it's a steel frame? It's simply referring to it being a CrMo alloy?

I have a current steel frame project that's close to good other than the dinged up frame and superfantastic paintwork, I might come riding with you guys on your Saturday morning loop and discuss then if that's ok.

Its alloy GTRmon, like that used in new entry level frames. Not steel, except for the fork, which is cromoly (i think this is discussed a few posts up?)

Go on - its a good deal.

Hey munga man, would you flog me the frame and keep the other parts?

Hey Munga, if you're free this weekend I'll come out and have a look.

I dig the frame, but the unicrown fork and aluminum are a little bit of a turn off. But who knows, I may love it in the flesh!

IMO the unicrown suits the frame style...similar profile to the seat stays.

Yep, I'd be keen to come along for a riverloop, might even bring the steel whip if she's safe enough.

You guys meet outside Gear/Melbourne Hotel on Browning St at 6am?

I did notice your use of the phrase "call me maybe", makes a lot more sense now that I'm at home and can view the embedded video!

I bought a camera on the weekend :s Even worse off financially then where I was before (although I don't regret it, great camera).

You could ask cyclomondo to make some up - this style of decal (actually, stickers) was on on my Europa post 3rd paint job, but I've reverted to the period version for the rebuild. I didn't see this version in Greg's, well, catalogue, though...
