Marinoni Special frame

I spotted a really nice Marinoni Special frame for sale. Very nice condition, good paint, BB and headset. Not sure of the year, but it's 126mm. dropout. Very pretty.
What's a good offer for this frame? It seemed a bit high at $400. I've got a good donor bike just itching to strip down for a nice frame.

thanks, Joe

Depending on condition, size and model, $400.00 is in the ball park, in my opinion. Needless to say, without pictures and a bit more detail in your description, such as where the bicycle is located, it is tough to give a better answer.

Good luck with the potential purchase. You will love a Marinoni. I have owned several over the years.

You'd be hard pressed to find a better frame than a Marinoni. I've owned three, and still have two. One has been my regular rider for 20+ years. As stated, we'd need pics, more info and your location to make a valid statement on the asking price.
