Vintage Bicycle Value, of course, depends on many things, and some have nothing to do with the bicycle itself. Size, location, condition, model and the like all play an important part in defining final value.

$600 for a Lupa. I would not pay that much in my area. However, in Toronto or some of the other eastern cities of Canada, perhaps it will go for that, but I doubt it. Three hundred would seem more reasonable at this time of year.

Hope that is a help.
Yes. Thanks, Randy and Thrifty Bill. I thought his price was too high to begin with for a mid-range model. I just can't believe he raised the asking price! The components appear to be a mismatch of stuff - 105 derailleurs and SR crank. Haven't asked about the wheels. His ad indicates it has brifters, but I seriously doubt that when the photo clearly shows non-aero brake levers, the kind where the cable comes out the top.
