Hey guys,

Are these prices really out of line or do they seem ok? Thanks...

Looks a bit high on both of those machines by about 1k or more each --- just my opinion though - bear in mind that the Neo-Primato is not a vintage machine and was probably made within the last 10 years

They are both very nice

I like the Super Prestige better but that is too high, especially with the scuffed up RD

Yes -- its a little unfair to the optimistic sellers out there as a lot of these machines are so nice (but great for buyers at times)

--- I am fortunate enough now to have a small handful of "boutique grade" machines , including one DeRosa ---

With a bit of shopping, it is possible to find very nice high end machinery for 15-1700$ -- (and not that hard, even on ebay)

With the price of a new Bixxis, Pegoretti, or the "retro" steel framesets from DeRosa , Ciocc, Cinelli and a few others and the cost to build them up, -- in my eyes, I view my old classics as real bargains even if I technically overpaid a little on some of them

I agree, that is optimistic pricing, especially for the Neo Primato. 1st gen C Record parts command a premium but still absolute tops on the Professional should be not kore than $2k
