    $150 in a red hot market like SF does not buy much, and this Univega is "not much". You really need to raise your budget, get extremely lucky, or settle for something on the mediocre side.

    I had a Competizione myself. Earlier this year it moved on to another home. Mine was a mix of Dura Ace and Shimano 600 parts. I just had way too many racing bikes.

    8 speed Cannondale with Shimano 600 STI is the best deal IF everything works. Ironman Master is a fine choice as well.

    Fuji Robaix is too rough. Club Fuji is a mess too.

    Nishiki is a fine bike,...

    So true. My wife and I sell a lot of stuff on consignment (not bike stuff). It is so easy, drop it off, they do the rest. Anymore, we move a lot of stuff that might bring $50 to $100 on eBay. But we...

    This. Even when I took my Miata to Key West, I ended up coming back with two bikes. And Key West is not exactly the mecca of good bike deals. But I passed dozens of good deals on the way. The rack...

    Doesn't really matter how Bianchi measured it, as long as you are consistent in your method, and accurate, and label it as such, you will be fine. So if it measures 62cm center of bottom bracket to...

    $150 or more is pretty much standard for any 40 year old used bike. The only way to make it cost effective is to do the work yourself.

    Used bikes rarely come in pristine, ready to ride condition....

    And the seller lost what ever value he would have gotten out of the frame. 5 minutes at a co-op, or a couple of dollars at the LBS and that crank could have been removed for him.

    Is that a for sale sign in the forward window?? I've been toying with picking up a smaller Airstream. They hold their value extremely well.

    2. No cantilever brakes.

    3. No mid fork rack braze ons.

    This is the beauty of vintage bikes. Buy right, you can try something out, and if you don't like it, sell it. You should be able to recoup your investment, if not make a little. Do this a few times,...

    Because of the wear I would put it in the $100 to $125 range as it sits. Components show lots of wear, ditto rear rim. Frame paint is scraped up a lot too.

    I bought one in much nicer shape for its...
