  1. There is no one source for bike value, sorry....

    There is no one source for bike value, sorry. Value varies a lot depending on market and condition, and there are just too many bikes to keep track of. If I need to know the value of something,...

    That is almost nobody who posts on this forum. I second: it is useless. The values are all over the place.

    The hubs should probably get new bearings and grease. I have never personally used the oiler ports...

    I don't see why you'd have an issue with the TI bolt in the quill.

    Regarding the seatpost,...

    I haven't seen those, but I did see a bumble bee this weekend.

    Eyelets don't mean it wasn't a racing model. Competitions and Professionals both had eyelets in the 70's.

    Here's a question, I know it has the headbadge and decals, but given the serial, are you...

    Mine is taller than me! I have noticed that it seems hard to sell frames by smaller, lesser-known framebuilders, no matter how nice the frame is. Hope you are able to make a deal with someone.

    Saddlebag with a quick release. Your back won't get sweaty like a backpack, and it's much less awkward than panniers.

    Most of them are like that, but the Ted Williams model was made with Reynolds 531 tubes.

    I see locks on the road occasionally. I assume they were on someone's rack and fell off, or something like that. They're obviously unusable as is, so I just leave them there and hope the owner finds...

    So, he told you it was a Benotto, but it actually had Windsor stamped on it? Then his kid ID's Columbus from across the room by a ping? Yeah, I would not trust this guy at all. Sounds like it's all...

    Um, guys, if he's looking for 9 speed shifters for a 9 speed RD, I think it's safe to assume he wants to run them indexed.

    Wrong?! No, that would be exactly the right thing to do with it.

    Cable clips, over the BB cable guide, band on shifters... This says late 60's or early 70's to me. It's been repainted and modified (water bottle bosses), probably in the 80's. No idea on if it's a...

    Isn't that actually a 2nd gen Rally? That would be a good thing. It looks more or less the same but has a support web under the attachment bolt which makes the derailleur much less likely to break...

    Yep, after seeing those added pictures, I am 99% sure it is a Grand Prix. Someone upgraded the cottered crank and the RD was replaced with a later Gran Sport--both good upgrades. A big chunk of the...

    It looks to me like that is an Atala Gran Prix with the cottered crank replaced--someone correct me if I'm wrong, but it looks like stamped drops, pushrod campy FD, steel seat pin, etc). Atala had...

    Weight is the main reason to change the cottered cranks, also it's easier to work on non-cottered ones. But I wouldn't change it.

    I agree alloy rims would be a great upgrade.
