50STX56TT Norco Grand Touring $200 CAD
Not fancy, but very practical. A real touring bike CroMoly steel frame, brazeons for racks and panniers, triple chain ring for climbing. nice long stretched out top tube for comfort, cantilever brakes (lots of clearance for fenders). A nice little all-rounder. (P.S. the pink bar tape is going.)
58cm (?-? tbc) Puch (Austria) "Vent Noir" Reynolds 531 with black Dura Ace/Crane NOS?? $2500CAD/$2,000 USD
58cm 70s or early 80s Puch (Austrian) "Vent Noir" with full Reynolds 531 with early black Dura Ace/Crane
This museum condition 531 classic came out of someone's closet and if has ever even been ridden around the block, that would be very hard to discern. So I'll go with "Seems NOS". The unusual and elegant matte finish is called Black Chrome.
This is an interesting one. I got it from a fellow in Grenoble who said it had been his father's bike when he was a mechanic for a team around Paris. No brand name on it so I assume he, like most riders in that day (this is probably the early 70s?) just got a frame built at the local bike shop. He didn't know the tube material but thought it was Reynolds. The rest of the bits are amazing and in amazing , nearly new condition. Campagnolo Nuovo Record all round.
