If you love something...
Selling my 1986 54cm Specialized Allez. Parts are a combo of Campagnolo Record (Nuovo, Super/Strada), Shimano Dura-Ace, and Vintage Cinelli. Frame is Tange Prestige tubing, and a unique version of the early Allez that was sold only to Specialized dealers/shops*. In other words, a vintage bike dork's dream.

If you're 5'8"-5'11", believe that #steelisreal, and want to own a piece of cycling history**, you could do a lot worse. This bike is amazingly fun to ride and totally competitive against modern road bikes, but would also be a worthy window display piece. It's in immaculate condition (a handful of paint chips on the drive-side chainstay, and that's about it), so much so that it STILL HAS THE ORIGINAL TIRES FROM 1986, and they are A-OK. No cracking in the sidewalls at all, 31 years later.

**no, for real, this was the warm-up bike for the American Team in the 1986 Coors Classic, the US' response to the Tour de France. And in 1986, a dude named Greg Lemond went all the way to first place after working out the kinks on this same frame. Plus, Kevin Costner rode this baby in American Flyers with Cinema's most glorious mustache, ever.
