I presently have more than 20 auctions running on ebay. The first ones will end in the next 12 hours, whereas others still have a few days still to run.

To get an overview of all of the auctions on one single ebay web-page check out: http://ebay.com/<blah>

All of the following auctions are pertinent to the CR time period

The first auction to end is for a 59 cm C/C Colnago from the early 80's http://ebay.com/<blah> itemZ110236953652

Another auction ending in less than 24 hours is a set of Campagnolo no-name brakes, complete with proper brakes levers. I would like to thank the highly respected CR list-member who has been the high bidder on these brakes since day one. http://ebay.com/<blah> QQitemZ120238044358

The last auction to end within 24 hours is for a NOS Way Assauto headset in original box from the 1950's. Since I have multiples of this headset, I will be making second-chance offers on this particular component and will still accept any request made by a CR listmember for a headset at $55.00 delivered http://ebay.com/<blah> itemZ120238196596

I then have 5 auctions for a variety of water bottles from various vintages that mat be just what you might need to finish off the restoration of your vintage bike. There are 2 light blue REG ones from the 60's-70s (I believe that it was either Michael or Robert who had asked about just such bottles). Then, there are 2 TA bottles with Tour de France logos. An Italian ALE-made bottle with Marinoni logos still in the original packaging, and lastly a Greg Lemond Taco Bell water bottle. If you then buy one or more of these bottles, you can also look after the bottle cage situation, as I am offering both a chromed TA steel cage (in excellent unused shape) http://ebay.com/<blah> emZ120238657430

or a REG handlebar-mount bottle cage: http://ebay.com/<blah> 0QQitemZ120238670979

and to affix the TA waterbottle, the corresponding water bottle cage clips: http://ebay.com/<blah> _W0QQitemZ110237507356

A really neat saddle that has not yet attracted much attention, but in my estimation is quite neat and an ideal saddle for those of you restoring or assembling a late 60's or early 70's bike is this saddle: http://ebay.com/<blah> QQitemZ120238668115

I first thought it was a cool quilted design Unicanitor, but didn't find any markings whatsoever. Then I noticed that it had a Brooks-like tension adjustment screw like those also found on some older 3TTT saddles. A generally well-informed Japanese collector has told me that he thinks it is a Unicanitor, but I am still not 100% convinced. If anybody has any more information, I would appreciate all input.

For those of you looking to complete the restoration of an older Italian racing bike, I am offering a NOS set of Balilla toe clips. These are the one with the cut-outs in the foot platform area which makes them period correct for the 50's and very early 60's http://ebay.com/<blah> mZ110237518761

This is followed by the auction for a 53 cm C/C Colnago Super bike. I have listed it as a late 70's bike, but Greg Parker has suggested because of the all chrome fork that it is perhaps early 80's. I don't know what to make of it, as in Italy (where this particular bike was found), there were bikes from the late 70's with full chrome forks, whereas this was less common or not at all the case here in the US. This is not a show bike, this is a bike to be ridden! http://ebay.com/<blah> itemZ110237523595 BTW, should any CR listmember be the high bidder on this bike and introduce themselves as such, I would be willing to knock $50 off of the price if they agree to take delivery at Gabriel Romeu's upcoming ride on April 19th in Bordentown, NJ.

The last of the auctions that has already been running for a few days is for a set of early 60's Campagnolo Record hubs. These are the ones without the 'Record' inscription on the hubs. http://ebay.com/<blah> mZ120239126181

Please bid often and high.
