Sorry in advance if what i am asking about is covered elsewhere....but here we go!
preface: want to build up a decent (ie functional and not horrible) road bike for my girlfriend. have experience building bikes. she just knows what she likes aesthetically. (ie older steel frames, lugs, certain colors, etc.)
question: so i have found a Centurion Sport DLX in very good condition, functionally and aesthetically. meets GF's aesthetic taste and more importantly to me her fit/size.
This particular one is a complete bike, but i will probably change out half the components with nicer/newer stuff i have laying around.
Just curious about pricing. i will probably offer 100, and have to pay 50 shipping. so 150. i have no clue of the value of such a bike (a well kept centurion sport dlx) and wondering if im wasting money and should look elsewhere or....?
and speaking of looking elsewhere....just curious...
2) where do you guys, besides craigslist and ebay, shop for older/vintage road bike frames? im just wondering if there is some online shops out there that specialize in such a thing...from cheaper to nicer, i just want to know whats out there if anything.
thanks for any help in advance!
