I wonder if he meant to list it at $900 and the $9000 is a typo. He talks about them retailing for "as much as $2,800" which seems inconsistent with a $9000 asking price.

"1972 Raleigh Professional All Campy Original - $9000 (santa rosa) ------------------------------ Reply to: sale-185455911@craigslist.org Date: 2006-07-23, 6:59PM PDT

This is a 1972 that I bought new in 1973. It was made in Great Britan and has all campy neuvo record on it. These were originally 12 speeds but I have replaced the sprocket with a 10. The shifting and feel of the bike is amazing. These campy shifters are way more precise than anything I've tried of the new stuff. At one time these retailed for $2,800.00 I'm leaving the country and can't take it with me. It is in perfect shape other than a small ding in the top tube.

no -- it's NOT ok to contact this poster with services or other commercial interests" ------------

Dan again: It eyeballs, from the photos, as a 62cm, maybe 63.
