Maybe I'm living under a bridge or something like that. I saw this on ebay, and no it's not mine cause if I had a Cervino it wouldn't be for sale cause many of you know how I'm a Nishiki nut. But $1100? Wow, that seems a little high to me, even for a Nishiki nut. Maybe I'm wrong. Anyone?

What someone has it listed for does not signify what it will sell for.

I believe that listings such as this are increasing. The C&V awareness and market are growing and some sellers will lead the way in growing expectations. Testing the market.
More people will be asking for more money. And a number of them will succeed. More money, more attention, bigger market; repeat cycle. Bubble. LOL. For sure. Or at least a leveling off. But that time is not near, I think.
Seriously, I believe that there are many desirable, underappreciated and affordable, if not cheap, bikes yet out there that can support healthy run up in price. Parts, too.
It's interesting to watch and see.
I can't see this as an $1100 bike. In this condition it'll be lucky to go for half that. Probably between $375-500 final sale, I'd say. Lotta cleanup/refurb work.
I've got an '80 Superbe that's in nicer condition than this bike and I'd want less than $1100 but more than $550 to part with it.
