I have been a rider of mountain bikes and I am currently in the market for a road bike. I like steel framed bikes, so I am looking in that direction. There is a seller in my area that has an ad up for a 88 Bottecchia for $600 and seems high. I will be checking it out today around lunch.
Here are my questions: are classic italian steel bikes expensive to repair? Do they fit a lot of modern parts? The seller claims that it has full campy gruppo, brooks saddle, it is stored indoors, and never dropped or wrecked. Does 600 seem high for this bike?
Thanks in advance for your speedy replies.
