Classic Bertoni....Value?

Please see pictures....I inherited a light Blue Bertoni bike with Columbus brand mark and Shimano 600 gears. I am wanting to sell it. Does anyone have a bike that is comparable and can tell me the value of this bike. It has engravings on the handlebars of 3 ttt and an Olympic symbol with Mod Competizion in Italian, Corsamondiale on frame, and an original Mundialita white seat. Please see pictures. Thanks for your help.

Level the seat out.
Decent bike but not a well known desired brand.
Your market will be a large factor in the transaction price.
$200-325?

^This. Welcome cglavin. The color of your bike is called "Violet Mist" in the catalog. It's winter. Even here in SoCal where we ride all year long it's a slowwwwwww time to sell so if you are not in a hurry you may want to wait.

I have had a few Bertoni's go through my hands. The catalog I found, which may not be the exact year of yoyr bike, lists the Corsa Mondiale #6 out of 8 models. The bikes I had all looked good and rode nice enough but it's basically an SL frame with some nice Tri-color bits. If I was listing it where I live I would make it all shiny and perfect, list it for $325 and be happy with less. Again, your location will be a big factor.

I think this Pro Victory went for a bit north of $400 and the lesser Nuovitalia about $300, probably because of the color. Both sold in warmer months. I might have kept that Electric Rose bike if it had a longer top tube.

Welcome to Bike Forums...I have had a few Bertoni's...and they are great bikes. In the ATL market, I have sold similar ones for a bit more than the 200-325 that has been suggested...but...both were in the spring time and brought about 400. At this time of year, the 200-325 is probably pretty good in most markets...

I think the seat is level but very low and has a second saddle sitting on it in a very nose down attitude.
