Things I lost on eBay this week

#1

I missed out this sweet Gloria Garibaldina frameset with most of the important parts. These really are quite rare though there’s one Dealer in Europe that’s asking $4500 for his that is complete and in original finish (pics below). A bike from Italy I much desire …

I got shoved aside when all the big shot collectors went hammer and tongs for this NIB set of Campagnolo “no name” (1st gen.) brakes. Just over $2000 !!! I thought they would have went for more :-o

Lastly, I missed out again :x on these Carerra Jeans bib shorts Coolest Short Ever !!! You kids mightn’t know but there was a time when these were the shizzle :mrgreen: Faux denim and faux stitching, these bib shorts are only to be worn by the brave … and Claudio Chiapucci !!! Silly me for thinking these were off the radar so to speak :oops:

Not good pics but you’ll get the idea

These are not Carrera team shorts but they have their own certain appeal (or lack of it :-P). Maybe they could be an inspiration for a fixed.org “kit”

I can’t believe you let the Carrera’s get away. They went so cheap too. Lucky I’m not a size 4.

I added two pics of another one with original paint … here’s some more of a track version.

re: rake … post war Europe had very poor roads compared to today and on some sections the racers were riding on dirt roads. I wouldn’t call it fashion … I’d call it necessity.

some of you obviously don’t watch Antiques Road Show…

$2k is loose change for serious collectors.

It’s still relatively ‘modern’ items. Not even turn of the century.

Thanks Spirito for a great thread.

Shifter Dan gave me my carrera bibs in 2005. Pocket in the rear too. Only used for CWMCs!

Stylemaster :wink:

I’m just about to lose the auction for a set of these too. Makes me kinda glad though as my ass won’t ever do them justice as you have <where’s the blow a kiss emoticon?>.

BTW … the rear pocket detail is killer


Anyways, the same seller has a now rare and very collectible set of one piece Cinelli City Bike bars/stem/brake levers. I beleive they’re the “Tirolo” model. Poor condition but if you know a good chromer that can keep the Cinelli stamp detail you’ve got yourself a very cool slice of history. Maximum Funk !!!
Sorry Jolan … I gotta have 'em !!!

You should get some sniping software. I think it’s the best way to play. Less time wasted, less temptation to increase your bid, and automatic last seconds bid is a good defense against shill bidders ramping their own auction price.

I don’t use any snipe software so don’t have recommendations but might try it too.
