Dan B is back with another G-sale jem. This is his Cosenza 10-Speed Deluxe. This baby is straight out the OTSG handbook: foams, falcons, inspected, subjected, two reflectors lighting up the night, no seat post—to be seen.
Dan’s entries never fail to please, so if you have the time, go check out his Flickr page, where you can see more of his collection.
Hi. Here’s a Cosenza 10 Speed Deluxe purchased at a garage sale for $50. The seller had a few kids bikes in the driveway. I asked my usual question: “Any more bikes?” The seller replied that he had one hanging in the garage that he had never ridden. Based on the lack of any dirt or corrosion on the chrome, and the tire nubs, I’m inclined to believe him. All the bike needed was a quick wipe down. I resold it within a few days for $140. This is the second Cosenza I’ve found. I haven’t found very much info on the brand, but they do resell quickly. The bike is equipped with Falcon shifters.
