It's got fairly non-desirable parts. No one really actively seeks out shimano 600- it's solid, 99% as good as DA but nothing anyone wants.spaceboy said:What a great looking bike. Anyone have an idea of what this bike will go for?
Agreed! And I still want it!buck-50 said:It's got fairly non-desirable parts. No one really actively seeks out shimano 600- it's solid, 99% as good as DA but nothing anyone wants.
Plus, it's been ridden. it's not perfect. Saddle is garbage, seatpost looks like garbage, tires look like garbage.
So, the parts will keep the price down. If it went for more than $750, I'd be shocked.
If it had C-record, it'd go for close to $2000.
I'd be amazed to see that. When I tried to sell my Somec with Super Record (unridden frame and gruppo) on there last year no one bid even half that amount. My Ciöcc w/50th Anniversary didn't break $2k and it was super clean.buck-50 said:If it had C-record, it'd go for close to $2000.
love the original bottecchia! Same holds for the original guerciotti and masi! Don't know of other grand old Italian heritage builders that were resurrected under new ownership but I'm sure there are others I missed. At least with the re-emergence of these names, there is hope that one day a family member of the brands will try to buy it back and build the brand back up to it's previous glory!
