I just put my old Triumph up on Craigslist, but I’d kind of like to see it go to a BikePGH’er if I can. Here’s the copy of my ad:
A beautiful 1971 Triumph 3-speed bike, black with lots of shiny chrome. The seat tube measures about 22″ center to center.
The bike has new tires, tubes, and brake pads. Everything else is original, including the chrome bits, the fenders, the Brooks mattress saddle, and the chain guard. It’s overall in good shape, but it has a few squeaks and scratches as would most British bikes that are nearly 40 years old. The Triumph brand was owned by Raleigh, and this model is very similar to the Raleigh Sports of the same age.
On Craigslist, it’s up for $200, but if you respond from this forum I’ll sell for $170.
