WANTED 53cm vintage road bike

Hey Friends

I am trying to find an older road racing bike from the mid-80's or earlier so I can take part in a vintage race in Italy this fall.

I am hoping to find an older steel roadbike that is in great shape. 

Anyone have a bike they aren't using anymore?

 

Forums: 

Maybe

 

I have a really ugly Paragon (hand made in T.O.) frame that was built in 1985ish, the top tube is 52.5 cm. Unfortunately it has a damaged top tube - somebody squished it in a low end car rack years ago. It's a lugged frame with Columbus tubes, the BB is 70mm Italian thread. I have a Campy BB and a Shimano 6500 Octalink BB for it.

I've had it set up as a single speed for about 10 years, but rarely use it. I'm willing to sell it as a frame and fork (they match!). Is that what you had in mind?

Frame is easy

The frame is easy to get you need non clipless pedals, down tube shifters and non aero brake levers. I have some Campy stuff you can borrow to make the bike 'legal'.

 

Still looking

Have you found one yet?  What is the name of this here race you're riding in? Sounds like it would be a blast.

 

I might have something a little larger, I'll check and let you know.
