I don’t know how this will go. I bought a 28 year old bike, poured some money into upgrades, and now its for sale. I suppose it might take just the right kind of buyer for me to get the value of the bike, plus most of my upgrade cost, in a sale. But that’s how I’d like to start. Since I’ve added nicer wheels, brakes, bars, brake levers, cables, much nicer tires, and a spendy saddle, I’d like about $850 for it. We’ll split the shipping.
It’s not in perfect condition. It’s got a few scratches that have been touched up, a little rust (also touched up) in a couple of spots, but no major dents or dings. It rides very nicely, however, and it comes with a pretty nice looking Campy Nuevo Record drive train (rear and front derailleurs, crankset, and shifters).
I might keep the pedals and the computer, but everything else shown is included. I suppose if someone is looking for some kind of a bargain, I might need to take some of the newer, more expensive bits off and sell those separately.
This would be a good bike for someone who would enjoy a classic road bike that performs very well to do spirited rides. As shown, it weighs just under 22lbs (according to my bathroom scale). This might be a little more than the modern road bikes you might be able to buy for about $1000 at your local bike shop. But my guess is that this one will perform better. Maybe its just me, but I think the lively feel of old school steel is delightful.
