RE-LISTED DUE TO NON-PAYING BUYER!

 For Sale today this really lovely custom Chris Kvale road bike from the early/mid 1980s, equipped with a minty Suntour Superbe group.  Parts are in very-lightly-used-to-nos condition.  Included but not shown is a Silca frame-pump, painted to match the frame--it fits under the top-tube.

NOTE WELL!  Free shipping in CONUS on this item!

55.5cm center-top seat; 56cm c-c top tube.

This racing frame built in Kvale's characteristic style of beautifully brazed, shaped, and filed lugs for a refined and elegant appearance.  Original owner's name is stamped under the bb shell.

Tubular tire wheels feature 32-spoke rims mated to Suntour Superbe hf hubs.  Rear hub logo has been rubbed away for reasons unknown, and the rear hub is missing its grease-port cover; none of this affects functionality, the hub spins smoothly.  Stainless spokes mate the hubs to a Nisi Sludi in front, and a Nisi Toro in the rear.

There are a few very light scratches and chips here and there in the paint.  Nothing of special note.  From 3 feet away the bike presents as in virtually new condition.

This bike functions perfectly and is ready to ride EXCEPT FOR:  the tires hold air at full pressure, but must be re-glued for the bike to be ridden safely.  I'd glue on new tires.

This bicycle is also for sale on a couple of other vintage bike forums.  Subject to prior sale, so make your offer or purchase now!

International buyers NOTE WELL:  Shipping costs vary drastically from country to country.  Some countries accept 108" girth+length under USPS first class international guidelines and costs.  Other countries accept only 79" girth+length.  In the latter case, I can ship only by Global Express, which generally runs between 500 and 600 USD.  For countries that accept 108", shipping is usually under $200.  Also, I will NOT mislead on customs forms.  I will write actual purchase-price-value and you are responsible for all import-associated fees in accord with your Customs regulations.

If you have any other questions please ask before purchasing or making an offer.

Thanks for lookin'.
