Subject: [CR] FS: Ron Cooper (Complete Bike)


I have a very nice, but smaller Ron Cooper that I would like to sell. The Serial Number is 367. This was part of a his/hers set of Coopers and appears to be the "hers" bike as it has very little use. The measurements are as follows:

Seat tube: 46cm center to center Top tube: 51 center to center Standover: 29"

This bike is in remarkable condition and looks to have nice geometry for long days in the saddle or light touring. It would be ideal for someone smaller or a perfect first classic for a youth. Photos are at the link below and I would be happy to provide additional shots if requested.

I would like $750 for the complete bike. My LBS charges $25 for first class packing and shipping will be at cost with your preferred shipper. If I've missed the mark on the price feel free to make an offer. This is less than the last somewhat rough Cooper that I saw on E-bay that sold with 45 bids last month. The matching 56cm bike has a 531 decal and I assume this bike is also, but I have no way to confirm it. The Sprinters shown in the photos have few miles, but are not original to the bike. The rims have been cleaned and prepped for new tires and the Sprinters will need to be glued if you decide to ride them. I think this would be a prime candidate on E-bay for the Asian market given the size and condition, but I would really like to see it go to someone on the list as older Coopers are getting scarce and this one deserves a good home.

Thanks!
