Nobilette road frame/fork

This followed me home from a swap over the weekend. I've met Mark Nobilette in person and he's a neat guy, so it was nice to come across one of his frames.

Campy dropouts, Campy crank and Columbus tubing. Seatpost is stuck but I'm presently doing Kroil soaks. Couple of rust areas but doesn't look like anything major.

Any ideas on what this might sell for once I free up the seatpost?

Thanks in advance!

Paint is rough, but I would start at $325 and work your way down. I think it would have to go on ebay to maximize an under the radar excellent frame.

I'd agree with oddjob2's $325, as it sits, with seatpost fix. Those don't come up very often, so it could fetch a decent price. The few recent sales I've seen put the whole bike price around $1300. I wouldn't however, put it up for sale until I'd at least killed the rust spots and done some minor touchups. Rare find, good luck with the sale.

Every bike loving alumnus from the 2018 bracket winner in Ann Arbor should have one.

Still wearing drop-in bars! A good indication of how long it's been since it was last ridden.
