Look Mi 80 R (26″wheel) mountain bike. (I believe its a 1994, not certain though.)
18″ Triple butted internally welded frame made in Canada.
Components that are original: Shimano LX (rd and fd) and XT m730 hubs laced to Ritchey Vantage rims, crank (175mm) and brakes are Ritchey Logic, cromo stem and bars.
Here is a list of New parts installed this year (with very little use since):
cartridge Bottom Bracket (un55),
koolstop brake pads,
Shimano cassette and sram chain,
headset (same as original – Ritchey)
saddle (Crank Bros. Iodine 2)
Also Michelin Wild Run’r tires.
The rear spacing is 130mm. The Ritchey logic crankset is special in its quality and also its narrow stance (one of the narrowest fitted to a mtb).
A few paint chips.
Somewhat tempted, if we’re honest!
You are bidding on a 1986 TVT LOOK 53cm Carbon Bernard Hinault Single Speed Conversion.
I found this bike at a used outdoor store. It has been upgraded over the years but all the parts are vintage high end.
I converted to a vintage single speed. I added some reproduction decals.
Shimano 600 Brake levers and wheelset
Shimano Dura Ace Brakes
Campagnolo headset and crankset
In very good condition but rear derailleur hanger was damaged and removed. Unknown history and mileage.
I have a after market derailleur hanger included in case you would like to run gears!
No bicycle manufacturer has won more track championships than LOOK and the KG396 was one of the models that began its dynasty! Classic looking and truly a rare gem, this bike has propelled more riders to victories than any other brand.
What I have: A 2004 US National Team issue, LOOK kg396 (size Large, 56cm top tube, 56cm seat tube cr to top) with LOOK ergo stem (red) and LOOK carbon seat post
• Campagnolo Record 165mm Pista crankset (49 tooth) with Campy Veloce square taper BB, REAR ZIPP DISC WITH A FRONT EASTON CLINCHER CARBON WHEEL and NEW SRAM 1/8 chain, Cinelli Unicanitor Track saddle (white),Cinelli Criterium alloy bars with NEW red/white/blue Benotto tape • MSRP on frame alone was over $7500 new!
• Bike has custom US National team paint scheme, but has this bike has been used as a training bike for many years by the owner prior to me it has many nicks and scratches in the paint — all cosmetic, nothing structural, but I have chosen to preserve the original rare color scheme, but you could choose to re-paint it.
Update, 10 July 2015:
This LOOK is still available, now for $1000. Hurry!
