Basso Astra

Curious to hear what others have to say about this Basso Astra, 8 speed C Record, Delta Brakes, and Shamals. I know the wheels and brakes alone are probably worth a bunch, but I'm not familiar with the value of the frame. All in all it looks pretty steep.

Bikes: No-name LH drive track. Also ride an Exxon Graftek, a Masi, a Trek R200 or a RR Boneshaker for fun!

One very similar just sold two weeks ago for $1000. Lots of these seem to get listed at high prices and then seller accepts less. The one you are looking at has a nicer part selection than the $1K bike, but not $1700 nicer.

Thanks. I'm guessing that puts the frame and fork alone in the $500-$700 range.

Actually, those are close to the values two sellers were asking before accepting "best offers" for less, both on Columbus EL versions. More likely yours is less ($400-$500) since the tubing is not Columbus EL.

Eh, I don't know. The cheapest legitimate pair of Shamals that I could find on ebay sold for $560. Some pairs sold for close to $1000. C-Record Delta brakes are an easy $300-400. Figure $600 for the frameset, $350 for the brakes, and $700 for the wheels and you're already at $1650.

I do think that the seller is trying to get a part-out price for a complete bike, but with these types of parts I think you have to do that. Otherwise someone will buy it, part it out, and pocket the profit.
