nice looking bike. I am not familiar with the Alpine name are you and the bike in the states? I doubt the biopace rings are aftermarket as the other conponents look the proper age for biopace.

Alpine my be a catalog brand from some place like Bean, or REI, (I did say like I know REI has there Nouvara brand and Bean used to private label C'dales)

as for value depending where you live a clean Sport LX bike with a ChroMoly frame (it is ChroMoly yes?) would be $200 or so.
Bianchis '87 Sport SX, '90 Proto, '90 Campione del Fausto Giamondi Specialisma Italiano Mundo, '91 Boarala 'cross, '93 Project 3, '86 Volpe, '97 Ti Megatube, , '90 something Vento 603,

Others but still loved,; '80 RIGI, '80 Batavus Professional, '87 Cornelo, '09 Motobecane SOLD, '?? Jane Doe (still on the drawing board), '90ish Haro Escape

Yes we are in the states, Southwest Florida actually. I was just thinking the biopace was aftermarket because the sticker was still on it and it looked new. But I suppose the bike was just not ridden much which is why it is in such good shape. I figured a sticker from the 80s would be faded and peeling but indoor AC storage must have been doing this bike well. No indications on the bike what the frame is made of, any easy way of telling by the lugs or something?
