    What's a 1997 Bianchi Veloce worth?

    I recently picked up this bike for a song. It is a 51cm frame. It is in pretty good shape with no rust, dings or dents. There are some paint chips on the fork and seat stays. I picked up some 'official' Bianchi Celeste paint and plan on doing a little touch-up. It has Campy Veloce components. Everything is original. The pedals that are currently on it are just temporary. I will be selling it soon so I can add to my bike fund. What do people think I should ask for it? Thanks.

    Beautiful steel Celeste !

    That's a '98 which originally listed at $1500
    http://www.bikepedia.com/quickbike/B...loce&Type=bike

    97 came w/ 8 spd
    98 had 9 spd and a steel fork.
    99 introduced the carbon fork.

    I've been looking at Veloces for the past couple of months.
    They've ranged from the lowest at $500 up to $850.
    2 wks ago a 53cm 9 spd was posted for $1000, but that was San Francisco.
    and I'm sure you've seen the Veloce just listed in LA for $380!

    to give you a rough idea,Veloces for the past month:
    LA $380
    NY $800
    LA $575
    SF $625
    SF $750
    NY $450
    Boston $800
    Seattle 2001 $700
    SF $1000
    Atlanta 1995 $625
    Orange county $850
    NY $650
    Dallas $750
    Portland $750
    NY $600
    Boston $600
    Seattle 2004 $650
    (I miss JAXED bikes which had current & expired listings)

    Obviously doesn't take into account year, condition or size, but I hope that gives you some perspective.
    Good luck on your Bianchi.

    Inutil, thanks for the info. I was having a hard time trying to determine whether the bike was a 97 or 98. It seemed to be a mix. It had more components from a 97 than 98 so I guessed late 97 using some 'new' parts or an early 98 and they were using up 'old' parts. The derailleur is a 9 speed but the cassette is 8 speed (which could be a replacement).

    I plan on selling it, using the proceeds to add to my bike fund to buy another Italian bike or a Merckx that is my size. I bought it for so cheap I couldn't pass it up.

    I see you have a couple Bridgestones. A couple months ago I picked up my 1992 RB-1. It is a great bike.
