*UPDATE*

Sold for $389 + postage, ebay.



Alright, I have to sell this along-also posted in the general sale section:

Image

1988 Scott Boulder, all original except for seatpost and grips. Shimano Deore FD, RD, Pedals, Shifters, canti front/rear U brakes-note that the shifter bodies and brake levers are black-I've never seen that before with Deore parts. Scott branded, gold ano bars, Scott saddle, Tange Levin CD headset. The wheelset is freaking sweet-black Weinmann 26x1.75 hard ano concave rims laced to stunning high flange, pewter anodized Suzue touring hubs with sealed cartridge bearings. Original ChenShin tires, all cables and outers original, original Shimano brake pads (cracking).

The frame is awesome, Tange 'Special' double butted chromoly with a partial wraparound seatstay, spare spokes/chainslap protector on the drive chainstay and a curved seatstay bridge. Fork is most likely Tange, it's in beautiful shape and has rack/pannier bosses-how handy is that? The paint is yellow metallic-it's hard to see the metallic effect in the pics, but in direct sunlight it really pops.

Condition is mostly spectacular, some rust on the skewers, fresh paint chips on the top tube (short-term previous owner's careless lock placement :cry: ), minor chainsuck, a few scratches on the chainstays (also very recent) and the BB needs to be tightened/greased but feels fine. The cap for the left shifter is a little marred up as well, and the brake levers have a few scratches.

Size is 19" (48cm) measured center of bb to top to top tube, with a 21.5" (44 cm) top tube and a standover height of about 30" (76cm).

I've searched around quite a bit, this appears to be a pretty rare bike, and the build is totally unique and well thought out. It's an absolute joy to ride, I was grinning as wide as the handlebars cruising around before I took the pictures.

I'm looking for $380 USD, plus shipping. I'll split the postage to the EU with the buyer so it will probably cost $80 or so-it really depends on the weight of the 2 boxes.

If you have questions, just let me know. Small thumbnail pics are clickable so you can see additional details.

I second that sentiment 8)

Will, yours would make the perfect "beater" that I could lock up, and have some chance of it being there, when I get out of class/work, and hit the trails, at lunch haha.

But, alas, I'm not a buyer anymore :(
Good luck with the sale.

Thanks-agreed about the bike, it's got 'daily driver' written all over it. Good to see you around, I'm sure you'll be buying again down the road....

Hey guys, my friend from San Francisco ....


Are they new? If not have him write 'used parts' for the description of the item and a low value like $5 so you won't get taxed a bunch. If they are new have him write 'gift' or 'samples' and a low declared value. 'Gift' is always a safe option when in doubt.

You pay a percentage of the declared value in taxes and then a handling fee probably.


He sent them as Gift and I wasn't charged.

Very nice shifters. Now to fit them to my bike. :)
