WTB [BNE] Vintage road bike

Postby Crowz » Fri Sep 21, 2012 3:43 pm

Looking for either just the frame or a complete bike, open to all brands but have a soft spot for Repco's. If you have one for sale leave some info here or give me a link, thanks!

James.
Edit: Ideally looking for a 23"-24.5" frame.

Hi, what's your budget? I am about to get rid of a whole heap of steel frames in your size, and parts. I could certainly bolt something together for you. I'll pm you my mobile number.

Hey guys thanks for the replies. Sorry I didn't include my budget at the start, first time posting a WTB / WTS. I was thinking of keeping it fairly cheap as it's going to be my first road bike (and/or rebuild) so around the 200-300 mark.

Us Qld Retro Raturday rats will probably be able to sort you out with all of your wants. You might want to post more details on the thread in the Qld section.

Mate I have a Repco Euro Sport Tri A that i have been thinking of maybe! possibly! selling! (as I want to buy a track bike and need to abide by a one in, one out policy). in that exact size! Unfortunately I'm in Adelaide so would need to sort transport.

I would have to recheck the year, but its pearl white with the fusia decals and cable guides, As far as i can tell all original except the saddle. Full 105 group etc etc. Excellent condition I rode it for 12 months before upgrade to a new bike!

Let me know if would would like more details!

Cheers

James,

Check your PMs. I have a bike for you - and by 'have' I mean, 'you can have it for free'.
