DeRosa 35th Anniversario

I am looking for an expert opinion on the value of a mint condition DeRosa 35th Anniversario. Can anyone help me out here? Thanks.

They vary. I've seen them at around $2000ish, but one recently sold in the 3000s. Personally...I think they're sort of silly. It's an slx de rosa with different paint.

That's not an Anniversary jet - it's a Signature...similar, but not identical. That price is a LOT higher than the standard and I'd consider it an outlier. I passed on it at $2500.

The scarcity of the limited edition markets combined with the weak dollar can combine with some high auctions, but I think mid-2000s is about right over time.

Whoops, thanks for catching that. It sold on a Florida CL for $1850 originally. Very nice payoff.

To the OP, are you looking at the 35th Anniversary bike that is on the Boulder Craigslist?

I sold my 35th Anniversario last summer to a fellow in Minnesota that "had" to have it.

Aaron's number of $2,500 is seriously close to reality.

While it was a very pretty steel De Rosa, it was another bicycle that I was afraid to ride.

That means it sat there, and ultimately the current owner wore me down till he simply offered too much money.
