Paragon Machine Works is Auctioning a Rare Bruce Gordon Track Bike for Fire Relief

It’s great seeing the cycling community come together in time of need:

“This bike is being auctioned as a fundraiser to support the North Valley Community Foundation’s Northern California Fire Relief Fund to assist the many community organizations serving evacuees and first responders from the devastating Camp Fire now burning in Butte County, CA. 100% of the proceeds from this auction will be donated. Now is your chance to own an amazing hand-built bike from well-renowned builder Bruce Gordon, and help fund fire relief at the same time. If you can’t bid, please consider donating, www.nvcf.org

This is being sold by Mark Norstad, owner of Paragon Machine Works. We’ve been building bike components for 35 years, and I’m now selling some of my personal bikes acquired over this time.”

The Ritte Mavic 125ANS Bike is Being Auctioned

Stoked to see these photo and that sick bike going on eBay for a good cause!

“Mavic is proud to offer this very limited edition Ritte Vlaanderen bike with our Ksyrium 125 Anniversary wheel-tyre system and SRAM Red 22 components.

Hand-painted by Ritte founder Spencer Canon, this bike is truly one-of-a-kind. The seat mast is uncut in order to fit a wide range of potential owners of this piece of history. The Ritte x Mavic 125th Anniversary Vlaanderen is part of a collection of bikes designed and built to celebrate the 125th year that Mavic has been your trusted partner in cycling.

All proceeds from the auction will benefit World Bicycle Relief and their efforts to provide simple and sustainable bicycle transportation to entrepreneurs, healthcare workers and students across rural Africa through sustainable work-to-own and study-to-own programs. Until 12/31/14 all donations (including this auction and up to $1 million) will be matched thanks to generous gifts from a small group of anonymous donors.  To learn more about the impact of WBR please watch their new video.

Special thanks to Ritte, SRAM, Ritchey and The Pro’s Closet for making this bike and auction possible. All images provided by John Watson at ‘The Radavist’.”

M-m-m-molteni Monday! While Tracko’s got a sweet Merckx Mondays post up, I’m adding to the bike coveting with this sick Molteni Pista up on eBay. If I had the money and if this thing was a little bit bigger, I’d swoop it up for sure. Some background, this is being sold by a reader, who’s a photographer in need of some new glass. I’ve been there before and it’s a tough sacrifice to make.

See the rest of Anthony’s Eddy Merckx Pista in high res here or try your luck, bidding on it at eBay!
