Here are some interesting bikes for sale. I am offering them to CR first, then will put on ebay in a couple weeks if no takers. All bikes measured to the top:

1. Early 70s? Hetchins Italia Hellenic straight stay. 24" x 22 1/2" (or 61 x 57 to you continentals). TA triple cranks and pedals, Phil hubs and BB, Deore rear and Campy front derailleurs, Suntour Bar-cons, Nitto Bars and stem, Mafac Racer brakes, Campy SR post with Bob Freeman titanium shaft, newish Brooks B17, Mavic rims, fenders and a matching rear rack. Beautiful two-tone paint by our buddy Brian Baylis, a few scratches since then. Overall condition Excellent to Mint. Pictures at http://pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/rdf1249/album?.dir=6947 Asking $2000.

2. 1983 Eddy Merckx, 61 x 58 cm. All Super Record (no titanium) with Araya Aero 1 tubulars, new Conti Giro tires, Bernard Hinault Turbo, Cinelli bars and stem. Low miles and excellent condition. Original decals and paint with a couple small chips. Asking $1500. Pics at http://pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/rdf1249/album?.dir=61cb

3. Early 80s De Rosa with Benotto (Italian, not Mexican) decals. This is a very curious and possibly rare bike. The paint and decals are definitely original but it is also definitely made by De Rosa. I am calling it a Benotto team bike made by De Rosa. Anyone heard of anything like this? It has the distinctive De Rosa diamond chainstays, heart seatstay plug, heart fork, De Rosa Panto chainring and stem (old logo, and old logo bars!), Super Record cranks, brakes, shifters, front derailleur, headset, seat post, C-Record rear derailleur, Turbomatic saddle. The frame is SLX but the forks say Reynolds. Size is 58 x 57 cm. Not shown but included are some nice SL pedals. Wheels are still in Italy so I am selling as is until they arrive for $1200. Very Good condition with some wear to frame and parts. Comes with a couple spare Benotto decals. Pics at http://pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/rdf1249/album?.dir=c049

Let me know if you have any questions or are interested.
