Subject: [CR]SPRING CLEANING TIME - Another Lengthy Post of Vintage Parts For Sale

Once again I am offering a gaggle of goodies to the CR list in advance of posting them for sale on eBay (...you are encouraged to check my feedback in that other forum under the seller id name "57103"). Pictures and descriptions of these various "For Sale" items (...along with those of a few other "off topic" bits and pieces) may be found posted to my Wool Jersey album at http://www.wooljersey.com/gallery/For-Sale.

Please correspond directly through my public email address of rsb000@hotmail.com. All inquiries will be handled on a first come, first served basis. If you have any question as to whether an item is still available for sale, PLEASE CHECK FIRST WITH THE AFOREMENTIONED WOOL JERSEY GALLERY as I will be marking items as "SALE PENDING" when someone agrees to their purchase and then mark them as "SOLD" upon actual receipt of payment. All quoted prices do not include shipping and/or insurance which will be done at cost. I would be happy to aggregate shipping expenses on multiple items destined for the same physical mailing address where practicable. I accept payment by PayPal, BidPay, cashier's check, money order, well concealed cash (...mailed at your own risk), gold bullion, or diamonds and other precious gemstones (...sorry, no S&H Green Stamps, baseball trading cards, or highly prized marbles as I lost all of mine long ago). Your satisfaction is guaranteed to the extent that you are welcome to return all or part of any purchase for a full refund of monies not to include shipping and/or insurance provided that said merchandise is returned to me in a reasonably timely fashion and that it is in substantially the same condition as when I first sent it out to you (...please let me know in advance of your intentions should this prove to be the case).

I am happy to provide answers to the best of my abilities for whatever questions one might have regarding these items for sale. Please note, however, that even without the additional volume of messages generated through the CR list, I typically receive up to several hundred emails per day, so I am not always as prompt in my replies as I might care to be (...sorry, but I do have other priorities that require my attentions). So, without further adieu, list deux (...and koo-koo-ka-choo to you too)....

--------------------------------------------------

HANDLEBARS / STEMS

3ttt Record Competizione Superleggero handlebars - aluminum alloy with logo etching - traditional non-anatomic profile without cabling grooves - highly unusual F-B or French-Belgian bend profile (...not as fast forward or deep a drop as say a Gimondi bend and with a little more reach - a nice compromise between the more conventional TdF or Merckx profiles) - 26 mm clamp sizing - 40 cm O-t-O / 140 mm reach / 165 mm drop - model Superleggero (240 grams) - hands down the lightest traditional drop style racing handlebar available in the mid 1970's - [NOS in original packaging - even has the ephemeral 3ttt logo sticker still affixed] - $80.00

Pivo Professional stem - aluminum alloy - 22 mm quill - 25 mm French size clamp - 110 mm length - single bolt non-quick release - includes all original hardware - model Professional - [OEM usually in shorter lengths on many vintage 1960's and early 1970's French bikes including Gitane's TdF from that era - used in very good condition - minor insertion marks on the quill which could very easily be removed - typical less than perfect factory casting finish at its nose just above the clamp bolt (...although a perfectionist could carefully remove evidence of this with some detail handiwork - very hard to find with this length neck] - $15.00
