This might be a good example of how to list a bike.
Take a look at this auction, the way it's put together.
This is how you list and sell an English 3 speed bike on the bay.

Well, having a mens frame bike 100% complete and in excellent shape certainly helps, I know.
When was the last time you saw a Dunelt go this high?

Some of my Dunelts are candy flamboyant red and with gold decals.
Still this blue color is nice.
Not my auction, no relation to seller.
Mint, or close to new is nice and can't be beaten.

The excellent paint and chrome are the key.

Ahhh... 'twas a RED dunelt exactly like this one I first rode when 11 years olde... it was a friends and brand new. He liked my Muscle Bike better.... Not long after that, I started bustin' my butt mowing lawns and bought my 10-speed Sprite 27.

The bike in the auction is in extremely excellent shape. I have a Holland Built Raleigh LTD 3 that's equally as clean... same size frame and all...

For the price, it's a fine example methinks. Yes... nothing spectacular... but a VERY nice bicycle.

Has anyone noticed that the handlebars appear slightly wider then the Raleigh bars, but appear very similar to the Wald #8065 (I believe that is the number) Northroads?

Just an observation.

While I am now the proud owner of one of Mark's wonderful new presses, I still am thinking about alternative cotter pin removal tools. Whilst removing a stuck mouthpiece from a trumpet today, it occurred to me that the "Bobcat" mouthpiece puller I was using might well function quite well in reverse as a cotter pin removal tool!

Does Mark have any more for sale?

MISC:   Philly British Bike Ride? posted by: Bryant on 2/7/2005 at 11:52:54 AM
I just picked up a 1972 Raleigh Gran Prix and I want to fix it up in time for the Philly British Bike Ride. Is there going to be one this year and does anyone know when it is??

   RE:MISC:   Philly British Bike Ride? posted by JONathan on 2/9/2005 at 10:27:13 PM
Bryant, is the '72 a Reynolds 531 frame? I have a blue GP from the early '70's or possibly the late '60's. The seat-stays wrap around the seat-tube lug. I believe the frame is 2030, although the sticker is gone from the seat-tube. I was thinking about this one as a project. It rides smooth and appears to be lighter than I would expect. Sorry I can't offer any answer to your question. Good luck,

Well upon further study, it turns out it is a 1974 GP. That was the first year it came with suicide levers. The frame is a 2030. It is in rough shape, but I always enjoy a challenge

This is really intended for 3 speed British made bikes.

Thanks Pete. I do have a 1974 Raleigh Sports that I'll clean up. Now I need two more for my buddies.
