Too big for me. :whew: Bargo is famous for one Mrs. Nellie Hoy, who was supposedly quoted in a radio ad in the early 60s, extolling the virtues of Dr Mckenzie's Menthoids, for rheumatic pain.

What is the situation with re-chroming these days. It's kind of environmentally unsound, right? Does stuff get nickel plated? What other options? :|
Well, no, it's not a pushbike, otherwise I'd be pushing it...

Is it just me or is that fork a little tucked in?
And how did the 653 sticker get on that angle???

Might just be me but the front forks look bent.
It would not be at all strange if history came to the conclusion that the perfection of the bicycle was the greatest achievement of the nineteenth century.

for $150, i'd take a punt on it being ok. if it is bent, you might get away with a new fork, and the parts alone are worth the asking..

There's a couple of odd substitutions on that Gazelle. If it didn't go too high, it'd be a good buy for the frame and some reasonable parts.

The paint looks pretty good but the term 'lipstick on a pig' comes to mind... :)

Ricardo lo pro
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/RICARDO-LO-P ... 4abcba5ace

An Avanti supposedly ridden in the Tour Down Under by Matthew Rex. Initially i thought "don't be stupid, even in 2005 a pro wouldn't ride anything less than full carbon", but did some searching and found a pic that shows him on the same frame with Mavic Cosmic wheels. I don't think that makes it worth what they're asking (and i would pay LESS for something if i knew it had been raced seriously), but interesting.

Chater Lea chainset (3/16 by the sound of the ad), twin plate fork crown, and are those timber rims?

Quick, somebody buy it, so I can stop worrying about how I could get it to Sydney.

I'm the same, spent a fair bit of last night wondering how I could get it to Tassie. It appears to be near Ballarat. Any locals to the area want to do me a deal?
