    Loose ball or cartridge bearing? Is there play in the headset?

    Something in your OP doesn't make sense. They headset is obviously not "locked up."

    Can you post any better pictures? Bike looks mid 1980s and lower-end to possibly mid-level (as far as Bianchis go). Hard to give a value with those small pictures so I'll give a big range. Probably...

    Chain dropped in photos = clueless seller. If you know your way around fixing up a bike this could be a good purchase. It's a fair price for one of the more decent mixtes out there. I'd try and get...

    Everyone with a Ciocc seems to think it's worth at least two grand :rolleyes:

    Are they actually selling for that much? I doubt it, but I have no idea.

    As wrk101 points out you have a 1983 Le Tour. Schwinn catalogs, 1981 - 1990 (210 of 456)

    They must've had a bad batch of "Schwinn" decals that year because EVERY Le Tour I've seen from that period...

    Throw on any Shimano/SRAM 7-speed cassette. The only thing you'll have to do is add an extra spacer behind it because 7-speed takes up less room than 8/9/10 speed.

    The Araya CTL370 is one of the...

    Bike is too big for you. That's why it's not comfortable. Looks like a 56cm? Try a 53-54 and see what you think.

    Nice bike and the 520 has a strong following. I agree with ramzilla. $350 minimum....

    Seller is an idiot, but judge the bike rather than the seller. You only have to deal with the seller once but you get to keep the bike as long as you like.

    That said, it does look to be in quite...

    It will make a fine single speed, but I think it's overpriced. Based on the small photos I think I've seen Bianchis like this before. Very low end, nothing special. Should really be more like $40...

    How is the price negotiable with a starting bid of $800 + $110 shipping? I don't see a "best offer" box. You're trying to sell a bike that needs a complete overhaul plus tires/cables/housing/bar...

    Questions I have when looking at your ad:

    - Are the stem and seatpost seized? With that much time sitting it is often the case.
    - What's the tubing? I see a Columbus decal but there is no detail...

    Drop bars are extremely comfortable, even if you want an upright non-aero postion. The problem is that they're almost always placed too low and too far away. You may need a stem extender or a new...

    If you want it for sentimental reasons, sure. As a rider look for something else. The big draw to these is that they're bombproof. But when it weighs 40lbs, and braking is virtually non-existent, do...
