    If your Bianchi had original components, I'd say in the $200-300 range, at least here in the conservative Midwest.

    But a question: Are you planning on a full modern Dura-Ace build for this...

    Looks like a Trek 800 Sport to me....not sure what 800KDZ means.

    I've sold a bunch of these. After a full rehab, I charge $135 a pop.

    Watch for other issues and wear items. Trek MTBs tend to...

    The French Motobecane, definitely not. I have a 60's 'Tobec cruiser and it doesn't look anything like this. The current Kinesis (Taiwanese) Motobecane, advertised at bikesdirect.com, a distinct...

    Only one way to answer your question: Go out and ride every folder in your price range, see what you think.

    Folders are super-idiosyncratic compared to rigid frame bikes. Features you might...

    FWIW, Tiller Cycles in the UK have some reasonably priced options for cranksets, notably the Stronglight 40t and Alfine 39t. Shipping outside the UK might be pricey, however.

    Caution: Even though Giant is a humungo bike company, their proprietary parts and support for same are often quite lacking.

    I find it fascinating that the seller calls this "Terry style," as the small front wheel/large rear wheel combo was done by Nishiki, Miyata etc. long before Georgena Terry adopted it. Nothing...

    410937

    I sold this near-mint 930 with lugged TrueTemper OX and extras (rack, light, bar ends) for $175 a little while ago, after it sat for a few months at $195 with no takers.

    I put a new...

    Notice how in the folded position, that magnetic hinge comes awfully close to the ground while it's being rolled along. I can imagine that getting scraped up if you're not fastidious about holding...

    I like repurposing bags not originally intended for a brommie. This is my soft case with brommie inside. It was originally designed for a piece of massage therapy equipment (body cushion).

    Chris, what about a soft case?

    I know it's counterintuitive to use a soft case for your brommie - the thinking being it won't survive the baggage handlers - but hard cases tend to get thrown...

    Round tube aluminum Treks are nice rides. The next series Alpha aluminum with the triangular downtubes, not so much. I agree that this 1400 is priced fairly.

    I strongly advise not purchasing any bike without taking a loooong test ride first.

    It's more critical with a folding bike to verify not only that it fits you, but that the fold/unfold, features,...

    If the tubing sticker is to be believed, my guess is a '91 model 7000. AFAIK, the only ATB model in that time span with Easton 6061-T6 tubing.

    Upgrades can work against you sometimes because people like the upgrades but don't want to pay the extra cash above the standard components. So instead of luring them, it scares them away.

    Rough guess....in 1983, they were doing the contrasting headtube and panel decals together. As to which model, more info needed, SN would help.
