Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes.

Would you comment on the value of this bike, please.
Seems overpriced to me considering the current market. Kinda a "frankenbike". The victory derailleurs were "lower end" and of a later vintage than the awesome frame and super record cranks and hubs. They were probably added to work with those indexed syncro shifters. I have never used any but apparently they are very difficult to get working correctly.
Definitely a really sweet bike. I just don't know about the price.

+1, it's a nice frame judging by the pics and most of the parts are first rate but not the RD/FD and those shifters will work best if you always leave the RH in friction mode. It's a bit overpriced, but if somebody considers this their "holy grail" he may get $1100 for it. Also, the Ergal rims are very light but not everybody wants sewups.
Thanks much....truly appreciated
I'm moving this to Classic & Vintage Bike Appraisals (from C&V), for further reference.
