Guerciotti Bicycle

http://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/bik/2137579398.html

Does this look like a good deal? I am a junior woman 17-18 in her third year of bicycle racing. I have a track bike that is a Guerciotti from the 1980s that I absolutely adore. Does this bike seem fair to the price being asked?

I love the ride of my track bike... I would love to have a road bike that will be just as wonderful (currently have a CAAD5 Cannondale, fits well but it has the crappy 105 components and a stem shifter).

Any comments would be great!

No idea on value or whether it is a good buy. But you will be able to tell one thing as soon as you sit on it--Does it fit. At that price it would have to be a perfect fit for me to buy- and in A1 condition aswell.

beautiful bike. I agree if it is close go check it out and ride it. take you favorite mechanic some cookies or wine and ask her to go along.

It looks like a nice bike, just make sure it fits you. and look over the frame carefully for any damage.
