Near Minty Atala Grand Prix Woman's - Manhattan

I think this Atala is about a 1975 and it has Campy drivetrain and Weinmann brakes. The chrome on the frame is flawless. Anyone hazard a guestimate on fair market value? It's been a strong market as I have been selling very clean reconditioned mixtes, mostly Motobecane, in the greater NYC market for $275-$350 this spring

You can probably get $200 for it in this market.

I think that bikes, like that Atala, in the condition it is in, and being so brightly colored, will fetch beyond market value. I have sold a few similar Step Through bikes and they have gone for far more than I would have expected. Put another way...

Not sure how much it is worth, but to me, I would not let it go for under $400.00. I should add that I would not pay $400.00 for the bike, but would seriously consider $200, if it were in my area and not in need of dis-assembly, packing and shipping.
