I'm currently on the lookout for some vintage (mid 80s) alloy drop bars for a Pug rebuild project so skimming FB Marketplace for either bars or spares/repair donor bike.

This involves wading through page after page of Carerras, other pig-iron BSOs, and  probably stolen wheelsets, but occasionally it throws up the odd gem like this...

A Pinarello cruiser! 

Any gems in your local FB Marketplace / Gumtree / other classifieds?

On the other hand, there are some true diamonds among the rough like this stunning Bianchi - thankfully too big a frame for me otherwise I might be reaching for my wallet:
