Ciocc Designer 84

Hey Everyone,

I've been lurking on this forum for the past few days and wondering if anyone could help me out with the following bike:

imgur album: /a/bPuVY


I was offered $350 for this bike by a local (Toronto) bike shop. The owner specializes in flipping bikes so he was obviously buying low and going to try and sell for a profit. I'm not expecting anything fantastic in terms of price but also don't want to get ripped off.
I'm new to cycling so I just want to know what a realistic value for this bike is.

Thanks so much!

Any issues with the link let me know.

I should also point out that I've done a little bit of research on Ciocc in the past few days so I'm familiar a little bit with the brand. I'm mainly just not sure what the market for a ride like this is. When I got it it was covered in gunk/dust/grease. I've cleaned it up a bit but not completely. It doesn't have really any rust on it. Everything you see is pretty much just gunk in the hard to get places.

nicholasjordan-

Couldn't get the link to work so I can't see the bike under discussion. Nonetheless, Toronto Kijiji has two Cioccs on offer, one at CDN$ 2,000 and another at CDN$ 1,500. They have been there several weeks which indicates some price resistance but I think the dealer is having you on. You might want to list on Kijiji yourself in the $600 - 800 range and see what response you get.

The Designer '84 frames were typically Columbus SLX and generally built up with a good group. Such models, unless quite rough cosmetically and mechanically, would be worth far more than $350 in T.O..

I bought my CiŲcc in Columbus EL (similar quality to Designer 84) for $330. It was equipped with Shimano 600 and in need of some TLC. I felt like I got a near steal. It's now equipped with Campy 8 speed and I would cost a lot more to take it off my hands.

Not sure what yours is equipped with but I bet your guy would try to flip the frame and fork for about USD $600.

You have a Campy Victory equipped Ciocc with a Columbus SL frameset and it is clean, low mileage (look at the rim brake tracks) and certainly in the $600 to $800 dollar range for Toronto. Good luck with it.

Yup, mid level Ciocc, still quite desirable as it would take to a component upgrade quite well. A Super Record upgrade is not out of the question with a Columbus SL frame, IMO. Only thing not really going for it is what looks like a very plain white paint job. It would be better if it is pearl metallic at least, but I cannot tell from the pics.

Agreed, it is a mid-1980s,mid-range model with a Ciolumbus SL tubeset and Camapgnolo Victory components. In the GTA, it is worth about double the offer from the LBS.

It may be CampI and SL but IMHO it needs a ton of TLC and elbow grease to get into top dollar selling condition. If I was buying that I would't pay more than the offered $300-350. It needs a complete overhaul at what $100+ depending on location? Maybe a new chain $15+/-, brake blocks $20ish, and tires $50-100.

Is this a regular rider? Can the seatpost and stem move freely?

The seat does move freely. I'll admit that most parts on it do need a bit of elbow grease to get back to a sparkly condition. I was recently given this bike and not being an avid cyclist, I just don't see any need to keep it. The condition it was in when I picked it up was much worse. It was covered in what looked like years of dust and grime. I took it out for a spin the other day and to my surprise everything worked well and moved freely. Although it was looking rough when i got it it looks like its been stored in doors for all those years.

What it has going for it is the tubing, group and the good chrome on the fork....a good cleaning and wax, as well as consumables, won't, take that much...the years of being covered with grime and grease helped to preserve it and points to the fact that is was not beat-up or ridden much.
I have not seen a CIOCC equipped like this for 300....It would be a steal at 350.
Best, Ben

Hey Buddy a Ciocc is a damn nice bike. They raced the TdF on those bikes. Its a Pro Bike and if yourt new to cycling and if it fits you then its a faster bike than you are a rider. If it works for you ride the hell out of it. 350 cdn isnt even 300usd. Worth alot more and its a better bike than alot of new stuff out there.

I believe the fork alone would fetch $200+ on eBay. I watch for these all the time cuz' I need one for a Mockba 80 frame.

One of my regular/favorite riders is a Designer 84 in SLX. Great bike in my view.

Hi @mtoxfox, sorry for your loss.

Welcome aboard, going to say something that may seem off point but you may want to consider it.

Doe's your daughter ride and could she ride this?

It would be a great tribute to keep this and put it to good use.

Of course my Dad bought me most of my bikes when I was young, he also got the value of a good bike and helped get me me those too.

He also instilled the mechanic in me that has served me well all my life, especially with bikes.
