Yep. I've SMS'd my diminutive work colleague, who lives 1 suburb away. It would fit her to a 't'. She ignores it now at her loss, IMO. The SMSs are nearing harassment. :lol:
Well, no, it's not a pushbike, otherwise I'd be pushing it...

Also it's not even 600 Arabesque, it's Golden Arrow, which was a step down, the equivalent of 105 today.

Sadly, no. pre-Xms budget strain. Shame; just reckon it would most likely ride very nicely...

What's the go with this DT shifter/non-aero Malvern Star in Melb.? Poorly photographed. Many sellers just don't get how important decent pics are.
Looking like a Tange decal, top of ST. (out of focus, of course). :roll:
... just because it annoys me, I've asked 'em to try and take some better close-up pics. Sadly, most who post pics like that have reached the limits of their competency. That bike is still radiating some quality vibes... :|
Suntour shift levers? (accidentally in focus).

edit: 2 more pics up. Dynalloy t/butted CroMo. Got lucky on that; the other extra pic was out of focus. :lol: CSI 'enhancement' req'd. :P

Was watching that ALAN finish today, my prediction of several thousand dollars was typically way off. Sadly the early keen bidder was sniped with 4 seconds to go at $300. I can imagine the disappointment.

You're nitpicking, next thing you'll be suggesting that its not old school bmx, or even vintage fixie singlespeed. :)

Actually I wonder if there's a seatpost for sale attached to the rest of the frame. "I didn't have a spanner so I cut it up so as not to damage..."?

No clear pics required for id there, it's a Sportif, i think they were about the same level or maybe a smidgen better than a Repco Superlite. I picked one up a while back with a completely mashed frame but it was still obvious it was a decent quality thing in it's day.

I think the Malvern Star is a Sportif although from the blurred photo I can't read the name on the top tube.

I have one, it's a nice enough commuter but probably only worth the auction starting price
