Cecil Behringer

I have a Cecil Behringer bike that I'm considering selling. Can anyone give me an idea what a fair price would be? Here's a picture. I can write down a more specific list of components if that would help.

This will probably get moved to the valuation thread. Cecil Behringer was not too well known, nice bikes, but not really a bike aware name, except his association with Pino Morrioni and his ability to braze ti, he made nice clean, conservative bikes. To get full value you need to locate a taller guy who knows the history, to others it will just be a vintage road bike. I saw a small one, with a probable mix of parts like this sell for under $400. a steal, but too small for me, this one is too big.

+1 Huge bike, which will sell at a huge discount. May be a part out situation, depending on the quality of the components. Components appear to be midgrade Shimano, close ups and a description would help, along with pics of any frame material decal.

Depending on the member settings, yours and the original poster, you should send him a private message.

Otherwise, the Classic Rendezvous mailing list at www.bikelist.org will have members whom might own one. They do show up on ebay but not very often, I have seen three, not to say there were not more. Read the list rules carefully before posting, but you will get some info from there. A search of the sir name on the CR archives will also bring stuff up for sure.

The original poster has a total of two postings to the forum, and the last one was in May, a few days after the posting above. You can attempt to send him a private message, but I doubt he is around anymore.

I'm the original poster, and I'm still around, but yeah you're right I don't really spend much time on bike forums. I've been too busy riding with my three-year-old on the bike trailer:

Sorry bbehringer, but I've sold the bike. I found a great person in Seattle that really enjoyed riding classics. The bike was a perfect fit for him and he was going to ride it daily as a commuter after he got it built up with some new components. Oh, and if anyone is curious the bike went for $600.
