For Sale: B&W International Foldon Box & Raleigh Twenty

If you have a Brompton and you want to travel, the B&W International Foldon Box is perfect. It collapses small, unfolds big. I’ve got one for each Brompton I have. They work great. The company I ordered from sent an additional and didn’t want it back. So it’s new. We have taken four flights with our Bromptons in these and haven’t had any issues.https://www.amazon.com/dp/B010CFAOC/These vary from $250-$400…but if you’ve got $175 cash, it’s…See More

"Hi Jaik, I am interested. I used to have a Colnago about the same year in red. Can you check the size? Would you accept $1500? Thank you, Steve"

For Sale: 1972 Colnago Super!

Almost five years ago I got this Colnago. It's beautiful. I barely fit it and I'm nervous to ride it because I am a little tough on my bikes. It's in amazing shape, I'm the second owner. Here's your chance to own a nice piece of Chicago bicycle historyFirst off, it's the rare color. A Green Colnago from this time rarely comes up for sale. It's in amazing condition. It was purchased from Turin in 1972, by someone that I did some work for. You may wonder, "why would anyone want to get rid of…See More
