    84 pinnarello treviso

    hey folks, i have a pinarello treviso c.1984. it has been my main summer bike for a few years now, the frame is in perfect shape with no dings at all. i have been upgrading it slowly, because when i got it all the campy was stripped off and replaced with crappy suntour from the early 90s. iam wondering if it is worth it to restore to original state. i am broke, so i would sell it to buy a lighter bike, iknow it is worth more than the 200 i bought it for, but could i get any real cash for it, or will it just be "another italian frame from the mid 80's". your insight is appreciated

    Probably not worth over $2-300 depending on what's on it. But there are fools and suckers.

    Generally, a bike sold whole gets bought for less than the individual components sold separately would bring. If you happen to have the parts lying around, you could put them on and get more for the complete bike than you would for just the frame. However, I suspect that you could spend $200.00 buying parts that might increase what you'd sell it for by $150.00. The numbers are obviously hypothetical, but the principle seems to hold true the vast majority of the time.
