Found this at a garage sale for $30 a while ago. I meant to have it as a cool beater but have since been riding a nice Fuji Berkeley I built up.
Fiori Excella 62CM, Cro-Moly. (All I've read is that people seem to have Hi-Ten Excellas, but this definitely says CroMo on the [worn] sticker)
Shimano 600 front der, Shimano Light Action rear der and shifters (friction).
Just put fresh (black) bar tape on it (ignore the naked bars in the picture it's old and right now the bike is in the corner and hard to access)
Slapped on some cheap but newish pedals and plastic clips+black straps as well.
Aluminum Araya rims, Joytech sealed hubs. (27", with ugly generic but not rotten tires)
The brakes... have no name on them, and they kinda suck (but I'm sure I can put on something more respectable from the basement bins).
I think it's obvious a few things have been upgraded to something more modern at some point (especially the 600 front)....
as the frame must be of an earlier vintage than I think, because all the pictures I can seem to find of the Excella have sweet 2-tone fade paint.
Since the Fuji is around, I want to dump it to ease the monthly bills (and subsequently my mind), just a little.
Any idea on value? Again, it's not a gem - it's a nice little well adjusted and clean beater.
