MISC:   Garbage Bike? posted by: Mike De. on 8/23/2002 at 2:16:51 AM
My next door neighbor was throwing out a nice bike. I dont know much about them, except how to ride one, but I found out it was nothing big, a Columbia Tourist. Im thinking about 1974-5. The whole thing was rusty but all original parts. The seat, reflectors, handlebars, all orig. I am in the process of restoring it. It looks so far real good. I was wondering how much would it be worth if I finish. And should I buy any new Parts?? Please answer soon.......

$50 - 1969 Raleigh Sports, Mens, black, 3 speed, 26"wheels, all original except one pedal replaced (even the original saddle bag and tires). 22" frame measured from bottom of the bottom bracket.

I can provide a more detailed description by phone $50! Can be picked up in Monroe, NY or buyer can pay shipping charges from a local bike shop. Send e-mail if interested. Thanks!

Men's Triumph, Tenerife model, 21" frame abreviated wing style chainguard, SA AW, dated '72, beautiful headbadge, very good transfers, Brooks mattress saddle, all original right down to the grips, very good condition. Recently dismantled, frame waxed, all bearings repacked w/ Pedro's synth grease, hub filled to spec w/ genuine SA oil. All new SA "corduroy" cable housing, NOS brake calipers with NOS John Bull brake blocks (I have another complete set of brakes if anyone is in need). Green with chrome mudguards. Slight fade on top tube, very minor pits on rims, only visible upon close inspection. Gets compliments at the local coffee shop on almost every visit. $85 + shipping, or trade for decent baby jogger (do you see the connection ?). Works out to about $1 an hour for time invested, and I won't post cost of parts because my wife might read this. Professional packing (included) which should bring return on labor down to about $.50 an hour, or can be picked up on E. 34th Street in NYC or Red Bank, NJ Please email for photos.
