Hi, where can I find general price ranges of classic vintage bikes on models and makes. For example I may be purchasing a Univega (model currently not known yet, I think it is a grey SupraSport) from a friend, whose back wheel is bent (a freshmen ran into the back), which I am thinking of converting it into a fixie. However, if I find that the parts and components used for the bike are quality parts, I may just as well restore it.
I have looked at the vintage bike database on www.oldroads.com , stickied in this thread catagory, but I could not find much on Univega and the price. I also tried search for my Centurion Le Man, and came up with nothing. I do know that used price ranges can vary much depending on conditions of various parts (including if the frame was damaged in any way).
In summary, I am looking for something that can give me Make, Model, price range guide, and possibly Make genealogy, and parts used.
This link http://www.sheldonbrown.com/centurion/ is pretty much what I am looking for, minus price guide. Extensive list of parts and components, genealogy line of where various models are placed, material used.
I am looking to buy the used Univega from my friend soon, and I want to give him a fair price for the bike.
