Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Value of a 60's Bianchi?

Some guy just walked into my work, noticed my bike and mentioned he had a 55, 56 (he wasnt sure) cm Celeste Bianchi track bike from the 60's, and enough parts for a full campy group (which he called gruppo in a terrible italian accident and made me cringe a little). I told him to send me some photos so I could see the condition, but assuming its in average to good condition what might something like that be worth? I don't particualrly need another bike but if the price is right (or maybe I could pass the deal on to someone who needs it more)....

if it's in decent condition, and does in fact have the full campy/cinelli gruppo, anything under $750 would be a deal.
how much of a deal depends on how old it is, and the condition.
