You really can't tell about a bike's condition until taken completely apart as I have done with every one of the bikes listed below.
My experience has proven that any used bike will likely need misc. work, at what cost? Too often I've found bearings missing in the headset, wheel hubs and/or bottom bracket, pitted races. axles bent. Reassembled with experienced craftsmanship, any 'issues' were resolved. Better still, alloy component upgrades and improvements were made during the restoration/rebuild process to the fullest extent possible on each bike.
Details were attended to over and above what you might expect, all tuned up. You'll save on the high cost of bike shop repairs and parts.
Showcased is my heritage collection of selected road bikes. No used and abused bikes listed here! All were carefully selected for quality. None were free or found in a dumpster.
Market prices of USED bikes is applicable as an indication of base cost. And a qualified comparison should prove the values being offered below after all my work and expenses have been given due consideration.

A Brief History: After retiring, I fixed bikes free for our neighborhood kids. Discovering that their 'kids' bikes weren't holding up to hard riding, I started taking bikes apart, making improvements. Ultimately, this led to the road bikes you see listed here. Words like rebuilt, restored, renewed or refurbished simply cannot describe the full extent of the detailed work done to each bike. The knowledge required along with the extra attention given to every detail is priceless! The result is an ideal previously-owned bike for the less mechanically-inclined. I do NOT buy to resell (flip) 'as-is' used bikes. References can be arranged if needed.
I've put my heart and soul (and countless uncompensated hours) into the most enjoyable work I've ever done in my life.
The Golden Rule is my credo: "Do unto others as you would also have them do unto you", a timeless principle that bears renewed thought from time-to-time.
Let me anticipate a question often asked: Where do you get your bikes? ALWAYS from legitimate sources! I've experiemced first-hand the emptiness and pain when something of value turns up 'missing'. I hate thieves with a passion! Do you have your bike's Serial # saved somewhere? Police will need it to track a reported stolen bike. Legitimate pawn shop dealers report traceable info to the police who can then match the item to your report. You'll likely be required to reimburse the honest pawn broker the amount it was pawned for but it's usually not that much compared to what the bike may be worth. I've been very careful about only acquiring bikes when ownership is without question. To that end, the Serial # is posted for each bike. If it isn't, let me know.
